    Guys I am trying to find a 1x12 cab to run with my 5150 III mini head, would a creamback 75 1x12 be a safe combo?

    Yup. I use a Dr Z Remedy, 40 watts, with a 1X12 Creamback 65 and it sounds incredible as long as you're not going for sparkly clean tones at band levels. Go for it!

    It will be fine, unless perhaps you plan to continuously run the amp wide open (I'm not sure how EVH determines their power ratings). I have a 2204 that tops out at around 110 watts.
