I really wish the damn power and standby switched were on the front. it annoys me to have to reach behind the amp to turn it on and off. I am actually thinking of switching back to the evh for gigging and taking the invective out of my rack, just so I don't have to deal with it at home anymore :lol: :LOL:

I don't mind it on my 50w, I have them memorized and flick them blindly.
Seems as though they could have put the global presence dial on the back alongside the resonance, used a regular sized fender amp jewel instead of the large circle type and they would have enough room for the power and standby switches on the front.

I loved my 50w, and for some reason I didn't mind them on that amp. the 100w is just so big and bulky it is weird to be reaching behind it to flip the switches. I agree with your thoughts on the global presence, and moving things around though with the 50w. it would have been much better

Put a mirror on the wall behind the amp and then you can switch at will! :)

Yeah, it used to annoy me too but only when it was in my rack case, that was a major pain.

Just sold it though, never thought i would, just loved that blue channel!!!!! But i A./B it with the BE and damn did it feel small and squishy against it. The BE is so tight feeling and big. Love that amp!!

That's kinda how I feel about them as well. Played one against my 5150 II and it made the 5150 III seem like a kid play toy thing. Just not my amp I guess?

The 5150 III is easier to play though compared to my 5150 II which was nice - no wrestling a bear :lol: :LOL:

Some like gum. Some like life savers.
:lol: :LOL:

Lot of guys here owned so many great Amps!
Everything from cable to cabs effects etc...
Come into play. If you heard my shit in person.
You would know. :D
But it’s all tit for tat.

Yup my thoughts also, i am also playing my 5150 II lately and it is a fight sometimes, especially since i dont use a lot of gain. Had my III since they came out and enjoyed it a lot, but now i feel i had to move on. The BE covers so much ground especially since i have the JBE mod on mine, it gets really aggressive and HEAVY.

And it is very easy to play, no wrestling here either :lol: :LOL:

I got a feeling when you turn on that Dmoll, that 5150 might be in trouble :lol: :LOL:
