Electro-Harmonix has announced the pocket-sized 5MM Power Amp, which is capable of generating 2.5 watts and may be connected straight to any 8 Ω – 16 Ω speaker cabinet.
The 5MM consists of a Volume knob as well as a Norm/Bright switch which, when engaged, gives top boost or presence to the signal.
“You can use the 5MM alone to go from a sparkly clean tone to raw bluesy grit or plug a dirt/overdrive pedal or preamp into it. Then turn it up for some gnarly grind, or really crank it and get bathed in distortion!” EHX Founder Mike Matthews detailed.
The 5MM Power Amp is an excellent alternative to a regular guitar amp. It is very portable and suitable in playing situations where a high-powered amp is not necessary. The 5MM Power Amp is pure simplicity and does not take much to begin yielding some beautiful saturation and drive.
Since the 5MM is an overdrive pedal, preamp, power amp and, or an EQ, it allows users to dial in their tone. It can also be utilized by itself and comes equipped with a power supply.
Ultra-portable, affordable, and compact, the Electro-Harmonix 5MM Power Amp is already available with a U.S. Street Price of $63.80.
