The MXR design team has collaborated with Eddie Van Halen to deliver a full range of powerful saturation and hyper-driven tones right at your feet.

The resulting EVH 5150 Overdrive joins hand-adjusted multi-stage MOSFETs with a full complement of controls to deliver overdriven tube-like tones and exceptional sonic flexibility through a wide variety of amps and speaker cabinets.

Whether on stage or in the studio, the EVH5150 Overdrive’s controls dial up the whole spectrum – from Eddie’s groundbreaking early classic tones to the high-gain, super-articulate sound he uses today.

Output and gain controls set your volume and distortion levels, while the three-band passive tone stack EQ section shapes your sound to taste. The Boost switch kicks the 5150 Overdrive features true bypass switching and comes in a road-worthy housing emblazoned with custom EVH artwork.

The MXR 5150 overdrive will be available in the UK from November or December.

RRP £174.99
