Gooood… goooooooood. Eddie Van Halen’s EVH has announced the release of the long-awaited 5150III 50-watt combo
The 6505+ has a storied history. Its ancestry can be traced back to the 5150, Eddie Van Halen’s first signature amp. That screamer wasn’t quite flexible enough for some players (including Eddie, it seemed), so the 5150 II was produced, featuring a more useful clean channel. When Eddie left Peavy, the 5150’s spirit lived in on the form of the 6505 and 6505+, which drew from the designs of the 5150 and 5150II, respectively. While the head versions are 120 watt monsters, the 6505+ 112 is a 60 watt combo versionwith a single 12″ speaker.
