Countless guitarists try and replicate Eddie Van Halen's sound but normally miss the mark by just a little. With the EVH 5150 pedal, Eddie has given guitarist around the world a chance to really dial in his overdrive tone.

          The EVH5150 pedal is a fantastic addition to any rocker's selection of gear. It's well rounded and goes from slight crunch to maximum overdrive in an instant. The noise gate is a great feature for people with noisy pickups, and the boost can elevate the tone into a crunch that's as metal as it gets. The EQ is great and it's easy to dial in a perfect tone that fits your sound. This is definitely one of the most versatile overdrive pedals on the market.

            MXR finally comes through with an absolutely insane overdrive pedal. Take the insane gain channel from the 5153 red channel throw into a stomp box and this is what you get. An absolute must for any guitarist in search of a great high gain overdrive pedal.

            This pedal is a MONSTER in a small compact box, with its wide sweeping gain stages and full 3 band EQ you are able to dial in a great tone for any situation. If you are using a high gain tube amp and just need that little bit extra, or if you are using this pedal for your primary tone stack it allows you to hit your desired tone. It also has a build in Gate and Boost features that just make this pedal become more desirable.

              This pedal is great! Its a killer overdrive but with a bit more under the hood. Its ready to go from bluesy clip to full on mayhem with just the turn of a knob. Sounds great thru any amp! Run your amp clean and let the pedal take over - or - get a little overdrive from your amp and use the pedal to push you over the top!!!

                Comments about Mxr Evh 5150 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                The MXR 5150 Overdrive is a great way to get Eddies tone & gain without replacing your entire rig. With the 3 band eq all of Eddies tones can be dialed in. The boost with compression gives a smooth edge when pushing for a little more. The noise gate is a nice added bonus.

                Comments about Mxr Evh 5150 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                This pedal is not only great to get those sought after Eddie tones, but you can cover just about anything else from blues to classic rock. The pedal isn't just an overdrive, it's a full strength all out distortion pedal. It sounds a little bit compressed, it has tons of gain it's clear, it's bright but in the good way, it reaches high gain territory well, too. It is also very touch responsive, giving you an all around great auditory and tactile experience.

                Eddie has always worked with MXR to make some really amazing signature pedals! The 5150 overdrive is well...bad ***!!! I recreates that famous EVH tone of the 5150's and takes it up a notch with an added boost and compression in this very sleek looking pedal. This is a must have in your pedalboard, especially if you want a little more hair in it!
