Well done Eddie and Bob ... and Dunlop!  (By Griff)

That is about as close to Eddie's magnificent tone as I can get. The pedal is also very versatile for getting just a crunch or all out Armageddon. Great pedal and well worth the price. (Posted on 3/22/16)
best evh sound i have ever achieved in a pedal  (By tripleplaynyc)

there are 2 youtubers who convinced me (andy at PGS and peter thorn). this has a wide range of heavy gain sound. the wampler pinnacle seems to have a bit more of the old marshall warmth, but this gets closer to the evh tones in my opinion. the noise gate as well as how this pedal performs with a good reverb (i use the arena as well as the ehx cathedral) and a good delay such as the caitalinbread belle epoch (since eddie is known for echoplex use). unless you already have one of the 5150 amps, this is a reasonable purchase (that means anyone who wants the sound in pedal form).

Awesome tone and sustain!  (By Ron)

Monster tone! Turns my vintage Marshall 2555 into a completely different animal. The overtones just jump( pardon the pun) out and grab you. Run it with a BBE sonic stomp and be even more amazed! $200 is a bit pricey but save your pennies, no one will be disappointed with this one. (Posted on 2/1/16)
MXR 5150 Overdrive Pedal Review  (By Jack Butler)

This my favourite pedal for distortion and overdrive although I also use the Bogner Burnley too. The 5150 is as close as you get to not only the sound of a high gain amp but to the dynamics as well. The 5150 really responds to picking attack and volume dynamics, really unbelievable.The hype on this pedal is no hype. I also have: Empress Heavy and Multidrive, Amptweaker Tightrock, Mad Professor Mighty Red Distortion, Carl Martin Plexitone, Tonebone Classic, Wampler Pinnacle - all very fine pedals but the 5150 is it, my search is over for gain pedals.

Awesome high gain pedal! It goes into extreme 'left hand only' territory! Noise gate is very nice! I wish the modeled it after his variaced Marshall. But it sounds great! Best high gain box out there! The Bogner Red distortion is the only thing close! (Posted on 1/23/16)

MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive

It's here: THE definitive EVH overdrive, courtesy of Dunlop. The 5150 Overdrive was developed by Dunlop engineer Bob Cedro in conjunction with Eddie himself. It pretty much nails Eddie’s tone, and this isn’t hyperbole—Eddie himself agrees.

The story goes like this: Bob Cedro, one of Dunlop’s top engineers, was hard at work nailing Eddie’s tone. After several prototypes and revisions, a day came where Eddie and Bob sat at Dunlop HQ. Eddie brought all his gear to test the 5150 Overdrive side by side with his actual rig, and sat with his back turned to Bob and the gear. Bob carefully dialed in the 5150 Overdrive and it reached a point where Eddie couldn’t tell.

“Is that my gear or the pedal?” Eddie asked.

“You tell me,” said Bob.

Thus, the 5150 was born—the closest approximation to Eddie’s tone on the market. Six knobs adorn the 5150 Overdrive: Gain, Volume, a full three-band EQ (Bass, Mid[s], Treble) as well as a handy Gate knob for dialing out noise that normally accompanies high-gain pedals. The range of the knobs are very robust; the EQ knobs are very dramatic and the Gain knob’s range is especially dynamic.

The onboard Boost switch kicks the 5150 into high-gain territory, by adding a generous gain boost that seems to add to everything, rather than adding to the total gain by subtracting tone.

All in all, we doubt you’ll be able to find a better pedal for copping EVH tones. Not even Eddie could tell the difference.
