MXR EVH 5150 Van Halen Overdrive and Preamp Pedal
The MXR EVH 5150 Van Halen Overdrive and Preamp Pedal is a sonic replica of Eddie Van Halen’s EVH 5250 III blue channel, and was specially designed in collaboration with Van Halen to perfectly reproduce his legendary tone.
This amp-in-a-box pedal has the high gain of the amplifier and just as much string-to-string clarity. The 3-band EQ lets you dial the pedal in to complement your rig, and the on-board boost adds gain and compression for punching through the mix, plus a one-knob Smart Gate function keeps the 5150 Overdrive quiet at higher-gain settings.
