Looking for a new amp, choices are JCM800 20W, EVH 5150 III, and EVH 5150 III EL34.

Well I got an EVH 5150 III EL34 50w head too.
loving it so far. Blue is very tuneable for classic rock sounds. Eq is very sensitive though and the resonance knob in the back of off the amp make it sound flubby if up too high. Red is a beast channel. Loving it so far. Will be a blast to compare to the JVM 205H Marshall that’s coming as well.

PS cab has 3x Celestion V30’s and one eminence governor 75w 16ohm.

Yeah I have been running the resonance really low on mine as well. Might try out the c137 mod on it this weekend. Glad that deal worked out for you. I had no idea when I sent it to you that you lived near by the seller. Lol

Prob depends on the speakers you're using too. I'm guessing?

But my 6l6 5153 doesn't flub with the resonance unless I'm really cranking it. Which is painful levels. EL34s are no doubt different though.

And since the wallet is bleeding I decided to reload a cab I have with some Scumback BM75’s per Jim’s recommendation. Bring on some tone chasing

So I took the plunge this weekend and did the C137 mod to me 5150 III EL34. The Blue channel was just a little too flubby for me. Holy hell did it make a world of difference! Love this amp even more now!
