    "Save you dough, get a Peavy 6505 or go all the way with a Bogner XTC"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    You'd be better off getting a marshall JVM or Peavey 6505. I recorded 2 soundbites with this head and compared it to a Marshall JVM, and Bogner XTC. I used a Marshall 4x12 with brit celestion greenbacks with a close mic shure 57. Attempting to capture the brown sound, the JVM and Bogner XTC nailed it while the EVH came up short sounding a little too dark and smooth in the final ear test. The famous crunch that should be there isn't and while it's a great sounding head, it's mot exactly what a Vh purist should decide on when you have amps available like the Bogner or Splawn.
    Feature:
    If those aforementioned amps are too overpriced, than by all means spend less and get the Peavy 5150 or 6505 unless you really need those pretty white chicken knobs. Although this head sounds great it's not the brown sound EVH is famous for. It's like a poor mans Soldano Slo. Save some money and buy the Peavy 6505 for less $ if you like the sound. Also the head is way over sized. It actually is 1 inch longer than a standard amp head on either sides and sits an inch over a standard 4x12 cab. I take amp recording very seriously an although this is a great amp in and of itself, I would urge anyone who is looking for EVH authenticity to look around at other options.
    Ease of Use:
    Plug and play channel switching easy and popless seamless switching.
    Quality:
    Again, the head is ridiculously oversized which means it's more likely to be your nightmare carrying to gigs. Seems to be sturdy though.
    Value:
    Buy the 6505. Same sound less $
    The Wow Factor:
    Looks great. But does not sound as great.
    Overall:
    Again, disappointed that this bears the EVH name while other amps nail the brown sound more closely than this one does.
