    I bought an EHX 22 Caliber amp several years ago for a spare in case of catastrophic failure at a gig.

    They have come out with a new pedal board amp, the Howitzer; 15 watts with B/M/T tone controls and effects loop, for $130. I wonder if they will ever incorporate reverb in a little amp? Forty watts would also be nice.

    The 44 magnum has been around awhile, too

    They also have a similar 2.5 watt, the 5mm. The problem for me is, reverb before distortion will not work. EHX told me the clean room of the 44 is not all that much greater than the 22, so I kept the 22.

    The Howitzer's effects loop would solve the reverb problem, but I'd rather have on board reverb.
