This isn't technically news now, but I just found out about it, so it's news to me!


Electro-Harmonix (EHX) released the 5mm last fall.  It goes along with the 44 Magnum and 22 Caliber (now retired), as a pedal-sized power amp.  With only a volume knob and a bright switch to control it, this little guy rocks.  Honestly, if it had a gain knob and could take 4 ohm speakers (it is only rated for 8 and 16 ohm loads), this might be the perfect little jam box.  As it is, with a basic preamp or even EQ pedal in front of it, you can sure do a lot!  Best part, it sells for $64 USD!  It's even assembled here in the US!
Life is what you make it.
