West Yorkshire, UK (December 16, 2010) -- UK-based Diago, known for their pedalboards and Powerstation pedal power supply unit, have expanded their product line with the LS01 Little Smasher, a 5-watt pedal-sized guitar amp head designed to fit on a pedalboard alongside effects.

Featuring Gain and Volume controls, along with a 2-band active EQ with a 15dB boost and 30dB cut available on both the Bass and Treble controls, the Little Smasher's four analog modeled cascading gain stages provide a range of tones, from chimey clean to plexi-esque rock crunch. It's designed to work especially well with pedals up front if you need to push it further or want multiple channels.

The Little Smasher is priced at £129 (approximately $200).
