over 1000 for a cab??? meh, I'll pass... The guitar world clips are pretty good though, seems like a nice amp.
Well in my opinion the peak of the Ed's career's long past, but I still respect him greatly for putting out such great music decades ago. The 5150 III is a great amp in it's own right though, so I wouldn't really call it some lame ass marketing ploy, since the actual product is good. But yeah you can only imagine that it wouldn't cost as much is Ed's name wasn't on it.Anyone else think that EVH has washed up and nowadays is just living off his previous fame? Selling overpriced amps and cashing in, much?
Agreed, but the 5150 III's gonna have it's own fanbase ya know. The same guys that get the classic EVH superstrat with the 5150 paintjob and all that will want this amp. Die hard EVH fans aren't gonna spend their couple of grand on a Cornford, a Kingsley, a Mojave, a Fuchs, a Bad Cat, a Matchless or whatever. They're gonna buy a 5150 III. Same goes for any other signature gear, there's people who actually want the stuff. I personally would much rather get a PTP wired boutique amp with that kind of money.For 2200, I can think of sooo many handmade, small production amps with alot more quality and care than that amp. Boutique prices they're asking, I says, for a slightly better 5150 that's coldly mass produced.
Splawn - Egnater - cheaper Diezels - Diamond - Cameron Amplification - Cornford - Frenzel - and two righteous Canadians - Peter's Amplification and Stephenson Amps
or you can get any old Marshall and get it modded by Voodoo or FJA or David Bray.
Umm what? Never heard of a 15 ohm cab. You sure you don't mean 16?the cab is a 15ohm..... tricky!!!
Yep sound clips and videos hardly do an amp justice. They can give you an estimate of what kinda tone you can get out of the amp, but to experience all the subtleties and character of the amp you have to try one out for yourself.I wouldn't judge the tone of an amp from a video, especially if listening through standard computer speakers. I've tested the amp and the warmth is there.
