The MXR design team has collaborated with Eddie Van Halen to deliver a full range of powerful saturation and hyper-driven tones right at your feet. The resulting evh 5150 overdrive joins hand-adjusted multi-stage mosfets with a full complement of controls to deliver overdriven tube-like tones and exceptional sonic flexibility through a wide variety of amps and speaker cabinets. Whether on stage or in the studio, The evh 5150 overdrive controls dial up the whole spectrum-from eddie’s groundbreaking early classic tones to the high gain, super-articulate sound He uses today. Output and gain controls set your volume and distortion levels, while the 3-band passive tone stack EQ section shapes your sound to taste. The boost switch kicks the 5150 overdrive into high gear with extra gain and compression, and the gate control-powered by the smart gate circuit-tames unwanted noise. The evh 5150 overdrive features true bypass switching and comes in a road-worthy housing emblazoned with custom evh artwork.
