    Selling my early 90's Peavey EVH 5150 Block letter 120-watt guitar amp head. Bought second hand in Castaic Lake, CA summer 2018. Love this amps chunk and grind, it's one of a kind out of control tight bass, if you love Carcass - Heartwork it nails this tone; this amp is also loud as hell. The presence knob's sweet spot for more extreme metal is up higher, meaning one can dial in a smooth dark yet satisfying high end of their screaming tone. Resonance on this unit, maxed, offers a refined addition of sub-bass that is lovely to hear through a real cab. Does great Van Halen, 80's metal, Metallica, hard rock & thrash, on crunch channel you can get Ted Nugent & AC/DC type tone. Still one of the best high-gain amps, used on countless albums since in all styles of metal. This unit was never gigged when I owned it, and used only at home with an attenuator. Always fires up and works great. I must admit this amp's killer tight low end make it a joy to play slam-type death metal when boosted with a TS-9 or OD-808. Beautiful cosmetic condition. Original block letter with Eddie Van Halen's signature on the back of the preamp tubes plate. This unit features the full JJ tube upgrade (power and pre.) That's right - received a full JJ tube upgrade, all power and preamp tubes! Will be shipped inside a guitar amp head shipping box. Available to ship on 10/4/19. FREE SHIPPING - US ONLY - Thank you for looking.
