    Default Evh 5150iii combo

    Has anyone aged the combo yet? I played one at ken Stanton music and wasn't really able to get a good feel of it.

    What does aged mean in this context?

    I've got the 5150 III 2x12 combo. When new the blue channel reminded me of Fair Warning. As the speakers broke in it just sounds like Ed's amp. An overall good VH tone. By no means a one trick pony. Classic rock, Zep, AC/DC. Modded Marshallish tones. Blue channel covers a lot. Red channel is like the old 5150 lead. Only better. And the green is a good clean channel.

    Anything in particular you wanted to know?

    Well I'm looking to get a new amp and I'm torn between a fender reverb deluxe or a deluxe twin and a 5150iii. I'm going for that warm don felder type of sound and I don't want to get something that is overkill. I already have a 5150II and a soldano slo.

    Seems to be pretty versatile. I do wish it had a effects switch on the pedal. Wonder if there's a way to do that.

    Nice looking combo!
    I'm still on the fence about buying one of those.
