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.

Buy this Pedal!


Amazing pedal, overdrive is insane. Love that is has a Gate control, with this much gain... it's needed. The Boost is handy too! I can also get some nice blues tones out of it by lowering the gain & increasing the output. I wouldn't order it from Sam Ash though...the pedal came in a big brown box with no bubble wrap or cushion of any kind. Everytime the box moves the pedal slams from side to side, I can only imagine have many times slammed being shipped from Florida to California. Left them 2 emails with photos, to no avail. Unfortunate that they treat their customers that way.



EVH Sound!


Good pedal!!!



KILLER !! ...yes it's worth the price..


AMAZING...wide range of adjustment and a noise gate...just awesome...and if that was'nt enough... ...i'd usually run a distortion on a crunch channel for extra bite some times...this thing provides huge bite and tone on a CLEAN channel...endless possibilities with this...THANKS EDDIE !!!

Great Overdrive Pedal!


This EVH overdrive pedal is awesome! It is easy to use and sounds fantastic. One of the great new pedals on the market.




Extremely versatile overdrive pedal!


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.

Huge sound. small price.


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.




Im Hot for this Pedal!


Every time I play this pedal I just wanna JUMP! This thing is all gain no game! The tone is what you want from your best Marshall and then some. Simple to use and amazing to play with. If you cant get EVH tones with this it cant be done!

From slight overdrive to INSANE distortion!


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!!!
