MXR is now offering the classic Eddie Van Halen sound in the shape of a guitar pedal - the EVH 5150 Overdrive.

The Van Halen super high-gain tone made popular in the 1980s is still much sought after and popular in today's market from the Peavey 6505 , Peavey 6505 mini, EVH 5150 heads and more.

However, MXR's latest offering is the most compact version of this legendary tone. MXR has worked closely with Eddie Van Halen so that the EVH 5150 Overdrive pedal authentically replicates his signature tone.

The pedal also features a gate and a boost feature, which is a great sonic addition given that most players utilising the 5150 sound often use pedals in front of the amp to offer articulate, heavy tones.

Tube-like tones, classic rock / metal and other well-defined articulate tones can be achieved easily with this pedal. MXR had previously worked with Van Halen on his signature 35th Anniversary flanger and wah pedal.
