EVH New Lineup – NAMM 2018

Posted on 25th January 2018 by

Eddie Van Halen is one of the greatest guitar virtuosos of all time.  The Dutch-American musician stunned the guitar world with his technical ability and incredible tone. Eddie has been on a life long tone-quest to find the perfect guitar and the perfect sound. After years of searching and collaborations with some of the worlds biggest brands, Eddie set up his own company, EVH.

EVH strive to create the very best in instruments for shredders, heavy rockers and metal-heads. EVH gear is far from subtle, in fact its the complete opposite, in-your-face rock and metal machines. His signature amp the ‘5150’ has become a staple in the metal and hard rock world and synonymous with the sound of modern metal guitar.
