Selling my 5150 III 6L6 1x12" combo with a modded clean channel courtesy of the amp's designer Howard Kaplan.
This is the newer/current version with the concentric knobs for the Clean/Green and Blue channels.

The Blue and Red channels in this amp are taken from the EVH 100S Stealth head. However, as many know, stock it has the worst clean channel of any EVH 5150 amp. Stock the clean channel has no clean at all and is quite bright.

I reached out to the amp's designer, Howard Kaplan and asked about modding the clean channel to make it like The 5150 III 6L6 head. Howard no longer mods these amps, but he sent me the instructions to return the clean channel to the stock 5150 III 6L6 Head circuit. Being an amp tech for over 30 years, I performed this mod and have been quite happy with the amp ever since. The clean channel on the combo now sounds clean and full, just like a 5150III 6L6 head.

I used this amp for playing with some local friends because it was easier than hauling my 5150III Head and cab back and forth. I've since stopped playing out and no longer need a duplicate to leave at the rehearsal room.

The amp includes the footswitch and casters. I am the original owner and the amp is in excellent condition. All original factory tubes with less than 40 hours on them.

$900 cash and carry in Las Cruces.
