New EVH amp

Quote:
Q: Speaking of equipment, what new EVH gear are you working on?

A: People are always screaming and yelling for that classic vintage guitar sound. The 5150 III amps are very high-gain. The main thing that we’re working on is an amp that is modeled after the old vintage Marshall that I used on the first six records. I wanted more sustain out of them.

The difference between the 5150 III amp, and this new amp we are working on is the tubes. They use EL34 tubes, which are more like my original vintage Marshall. Still trying to figure what to call it. Might call it the 5150 III-IV because they use the EL34 tubes. I told Howard Kaplan, the amp guy at Fender/EVH, what I wanted, and just last week they all came out and I gave it a test run. It blew my mind. It has the old vintage tone but with more sustain

Sounds like it's going to be a high gain amp, not a Fender Hot Rodded Plexi.

Hmm. Neat. I've always thought that the 5150's always had nice gain structure, but I've also always felt they were a little much. I'd love to hear a vintage tone from them.

However if the only thing that is different is the EL's, then not sure it's worth looking into.

I guess it will just be an EL34 flavoured 5153.

A 2 channel proper plexi style EVH amp would slay... like a BE100/Quick Rod/Helios for the masses.

Oh yeah, there's this too:

Peavey already makes a 6505 with E34's so I hope it's not just a 5150 with the el34s.

interested in this provided it does a better job with the brown sound than the current amp does. just sticking in EL34s won't change much if the rest of the amp is the same as the 5153 out now.

Pretty interested.


In that interview he says:

"I told Howard Kaplan, the amp guy at Fender/EVH, what I wanted, and just last week they all came out and I gave it a test run. It blew my mind. It has the old vintage tone but with more sustain."



He should have done this a long time ago.
