EHX 15Watt Howitzer Guitar Amp/Preamp

The EHX 15Watt Howitzer guitar amp/preamp is an ultra-compact workhorse that works as part of a portable guitar rig or as an emergency backup and gig saver should your main amp break down. It’s  flexible and, depending on the gear you use and your style, will fit in the broadest range of genres.

The 15Watt Howitzer’s volume and gain controls let you go as clean or as crunchy as you want while the bass, mid, and treble knobs provide plentiful tone shaping. Its FX Loop gives you the option of putting effects like reverb and delay after the preamp. Of course you can still run your guitar straight into pedals and then right into the 15Watt Howitzer’s input jack.


  • 15 watts of power, but small enough to fit on a pedalboard or pack in a gig bag.
  • A full set of sound shaping controls: Volume, Gain, Bass, Mid and Treble.
  • Bright/Norm switch: choose between a subtle top boost with more presence or a slightly darker top end.
  • Class D amp design for maximum output efficiency and minimal space requirements. Note: The D does not stand for digital and while this is a solid-state design, there is no digital coding of the signal.
  • FX loop with Send/Return jacks lets you place effects between the 15Watt Howitzer’s preamp section and Volume knob.
  • Power adapter included.
