Electro-Harmonix Releases the 15-Watt Howitzer

An ultra compact 15-watt amp that works with any speaker rated at 8 or 16 ohms.


New York, NY (March 5, 2021) -- Electro-Harmonix announces a new ultra-compact 15-watt guitar preamp/amp with Volume, Gain, Bass, Mid and Treble controls plus a Bright switch and a built-in Effects Loop. Designed with extreme portability in mind, the 15 Watt Howitzer can be mounted on a pedalboard or tucked away in a gig bag, and will work with any speaker cabinet rated at 8 or 16 ohms.

EHX's Founder, Mike Matthews, said: “Dig it! 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 comes equipped with its own 24VDC/1.0A Power Supply and features a USA street price of $127.80.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
