Electro-Harmonix Unveils the 5MM Guitar Power Amplifier

The pedal is equipped with a volume control and a bright/norm switch which adds presence.

New York City, NY (October 18, 2019) -- Electro-Harmonix unveiled the compact 5MM Guitar Power Amplifier which produces 2.5 watts and can be connected directly to an 8Ω–16 Ω speaker cabinet.

The 5MM is equipped with a Volume control and a Bright/Norm switch which, when engaged, adds top boost or presence to the signal. EHX Founder, Mike Matthews stated: “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!”

The 5MM comes equipped with a power supply, is available now and features a U.S. Street Price of $63.80.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
