    Max nailed it. This is below the current “Pro Series” range. Cheaper for sure. Not sure what it’ll be in Freedom Dollars (I’m in Australia) but these are substantially cheaper than a 5153 100 watt, and still cheaper than a 5153 50S

    Was just about to ask if they were doing that for the current cabs... glad it sounds like they're not

    MDF head shells too? Gonna be f’in heavy for their size if that’s the case.

    And below 5153 line? That does not bode well for not being made in China.

    Damn brother! I watched this before but rewatching now leaves me in awe of how versatile and broad ranging tones the EL34 has!

    I had a 50W Stealth but sold it. Somehow found it lacked character. Plus I really didn’t like the blue channel on it. May have to revisit this EL34. There’s a 100W version at my local shop but they’re not cheap! Or light!

    is there any one place besides this thread that has any of this information, like any, fender? evh site under fender? some thing on facebook from a legitimate anyone?

    i am highly disappointed with the bs every time i read through these posts

    i want something semi-concrete,

    i see the picture, that's about all i can count on i suppose, the rest is meaningless garbage

    thanks for letting me share my opinion

    i'll see myself out

    I've tried every 50 watt version of the 5153 now but this makes me wanna start trying the 100 watters... starting with the Stealth. I didn't like my EL34 50 watt at all but the full fat version with separate EQ for green & blue channels would probably be a lot better.

    Did you try the capacitor mod everyone does to the EL34?

    Thanks Max and Techno.

    I’d post scans of the catalogue but even with what I’ve said I could be fired and stripped of Fender/EVH dealership. As much as I hate FMIC, I can’t be fucked dealing with that

    One other thing I’ll say is that they’ve worked in a built in noise gate on the Channel 2 which is cool. Everything else I’ve said is concrete, so you’re welcome

    I’ll keep you posted with anything else. But let me reiterate:
    EVH 5150 Iconic is a new series BELOW the current “Pro Series” (5153)
    These are cheaper, different specs.
    Head and 412, and 112 combo only.
    Black or ivory tolex.
    80 watt head, 40 watt combo


    You got the better amp IMO :2c: That thing is sick.
