Electro-Harmonix has unleashed the 15Watt Howitzer, a 15-watt guitar amp/preamp in a compact pedal amp format.
The latest in the company's line of stompbox-sized amplifiers, the 15Watt Howitzer's controls consist of Volume and Gain knobs as well as a three-band EQ (Bass, Mid, Treble). A Bright/Norm switch is also included, which allows players to choose between a subtle top boost with more presence or a darker top end boost.
Boasting a Class D design, the unit also features an FX loop with Send/Return jacks, which enables players to place effects between its preamp section and Volume knob.
Says EHX Founder Mike Matthews: “The sandwich-sized 15Watt Howitzer is perfect as part of a compact guitar rig or backup. But the thing I dig the most, is the tone that emanates from the Howitzer. It’s super versatile and – depending on what kind of setup you’re running – fits into any style that’s your bag!”
The 15Watt Howitzer is available now for $127. For more information, and to hear sound clips of the amp in action, head to Electro-Harmonix.
