TIMMKV Reviews The MXR EVH 5150 Eddie Van Halen Overdrive Pedal

Browse By

The Jim Dunlop 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 MXR EVH 5150™ Eddie Van Halen Overdrive Pedal 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 MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Pedals 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 3-band passive tone stack EQ section shapes your sound to taste. The Boost switch kicks the 5150 Overdrive into high gear with extra gain and compression, and the Gate control-powered by the Smart Gate® circuit-tames unwanted noise.

The EVH 5150 Overdrive features true bypass switching and comes in a road-worthy housing emblazoned with custom EVH artwork.

MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Pedal Features:

  • Overdrive pedal based on the Blue channel of the EVH 5150 amplifier
  • 3-band EQ lets you dial in your perfect tone
  • Add extra punch to your sound with the +6dB Boost
  • Intelligent noise gate reacts slowly when you’re holding sustained notes and faster when your playing speeds up
  • True-bypass operation keeps your tone clean when not engaged
  • Runs from a 9-volt battery or power supply
