Get Eddie's signature sound plus incredible tonal versatility with the MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal.

Shred legend Eddie Van Halen has worked closely with the renowned design team at MXR to bring you the EVH 5150 Overdrive pedal. Packing all of Eddie's instantly recognizable signature tones into a convenient stompbox layout, this extremely flexible overdrive gives you a full palette of powerful saturation and hyper-driven, tube-like tones right at your feet.

The EVH 5150 Overdrive starts out with hand-adjusted multi-stage MOSFETs along with a highly-shapable control layout that can take you anywhere from EVH's legendary early classic tones to his ultra high gain, super-articulate modern sound. Shape your volume and distortion levels via the Output and Gain controls, and tailor each frequency to preference with the onboard 3-band EQ.

Need to kick the EVH 5150 Overdrive into high gear? No problem! The integrated Boost switch will take it up a notch with some extra gain and compression. To help combat any unwanted noise, the 5150 Overdrive pedal comes equipped with a built-in Gate control featuring MXR's Smart Gate circuitry. The EVH 5150 Overdrive also features true-bypass, and is housed in a rugged package that sports EVH's logo and his signature stripes in all black. Powered by a 9-volt battery or optional power supply.

Awesome pedal

By

Staff Reviewer

Pros

  • Excellent distortion
  • Versatile

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Anything with distortion

    Comments about Mxr Evh 5150 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    As a guitar player who generally dislikes heavy distortion pedals, this is one of the best I've heard. It doesn't sound muffled and/or unnatural like many other distortion pedals that feature loads of gain. It sounds much more like the 5150 amp than I expected. I am very happy with everything this pedal offers and couldn't recommend it more.

    I work for Sam Ash Music in Columbus, OH.

    Cons

      Comments about Mxr Evh 5150 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Add Eddie's signature tone to your pedalboard! This overdrive is easy to use and dial in the exact driven tone you're looking for. The built in noise gate is a great feature to help reign in unwanted noise. The added boost is useful to engage when you need to cut through the mix. All of that sweet Eddie tone is housed in a solid chassis that should hold up well to years of gigs.

      Amazing Stack in a box pedal

      By 

      from Columbus, Ohio

      Staff Reviewer

      Comments about Mxr Evh 5150 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is a great sounding pedal for anyone who seeks the famous "Brown sound" made famous by Mr. Van Halen. Sounding great with either clean or overdriven amps, It is very versatile and is effective with a variety of guitars. This is a hands on review from Jim in Columbus Sam Ash.
