    Got this EVH 5150 50w from Guitar Center's Used Gear site for a little less than 700 after taxes and shipping. Its an older version but seems to be in excellent condition. Have not had a lot of time to play with it but have definitely noticed that it has a pretty good sounding clean channel, and ch.3 sounds good too. Haven't messed with the blue channel (ch.2) much but will soon, I hear a lot of people talking about the blue channel.

    Try sticking a boost on the Blue Channel. It's what everyone raves about. I love that for playing old Metallica Ride the Lightning era stuff.

    Great amp. Congrats!

    Try putting a 5751 in v1 for more usable gain.

    Happy NAD. I had one just like that and it was an excellent amp. The only thing that made me sell it was the big volume jump when going from channel 1 to 2. They fixed that in the newer models by adding concentric volume/gain pots. They will do that mod for you at an authorized repair center though so keep that in mind.

    And I hope this one works out well for you. @glytch5 had huge issues with is 5153. :(

    GASing pretty hard for one of these guys. I've always resisted the 5150s as I felt they were overused, but fuck if they aren't overused for a reason. Awesome get!

    i solve the vol jump by using my helix for cleans and the blue and red channels for dirt.



    yeah i was in the same boat. never really played a 5150 but always was looking for something "better" that was more expensive. then i randomly got a 5153 for dirt cheap on ebay and fell in love. they are industry standard and used a ton for a reason. really sweet amps.

    What's the difference between the old and new versions? I may be getting one in a trade and has a mod to solve the volume drop issue anyways
