    Default 5150 3 / 4 Marshall Style Holy Grail Amp

    Good day to all. Long-time since I've posted.... Thought this was kind of interesting. I apologize if this has already been posted.
    Ed is developing a New (OLD) Amp with Fender-EVH. They are shooting for the Holy Grail Marshall Tone. I'm sure everyone here wants to HEAR this one
    Here is Ed's quote as seen on vhnd.com

    Q: Speaking of equipment, what new EVH gear are you working on?

    A: People are always screaming and yelling for that classic vintage guitar sound. The 5150 III amps are very high-gain. The main thing that we’re working on is an amp that is modeled after the old vintage Marshall that I used on the first six records. I wanted more sustain out of them.

    The difference between the 5150 III amp, and this new amp we are working on is the tubes. They use EL34 tubes, which are more like my original vintage Marshall. Still trying to figure what to call it. Might call it the 5150 III-IV because they use the EL34 tubes. I told Howard Kaplan, the amp guy at Fender/EVH, what I wanted, and just last week they all came out and I gave it a test run. It blew my mind. It has the old vintage tone but with more sustain

    Default 5150 3 / 4 Marshall Style Holy Grail Amp

    I had an amp guy who was going to switch my original 5150 over to EL34's and he sadly died just recently out of the blue. I was all ready to take my amp there and everything.
