    If i get the 5150 combo will i need a distortion pedal? Can the 5150 combo produce high enough gain? or can it produce the early van halen sound?

    No you will not need a distortion pedal with a 5150 combo. Actually it's recommended that
    you don't use distortion pedals with this amp. It has plenty gain, trust me.

    I doubt you can even put a distortion pedal with a 5150 with the gain up.. It will feedback like crazy and will be very muddy!!! If you get a 5150 just remember that these amps were made to be played at high volumes.The harder you push the amp the better it will sound.Turn the gain down and turn the amp up until you get a good pumped up volume-usually arond 3 or 4 is good-then start adding the gain back.Then find the happy medium between the volume and gain you like.I have a 5150 half stack and thats what I did.These amps have a ton of gain so I believe you would be happy!!!!!
