Ultra compact with enough punch to sock it to them on stage.
The Diago Little Smasher is an amazingly lively and dynamic 5-Watt guitar amp head squeezed into a pedal-sized enclosure. It's ideal for small gigs, studio and home use, with more than enough volume to annoy the neighbors.
A fully fledged amp head, its four analogue modelled cascading gain stages adjusted by Gain and Volume controls give a range of tones from chimey clean to plexi-esque rock crunch, and its designed to work especially well with pedals up front if you need to push it further or want multiple channels. It also has active Bass and Treble controls with a massive 15dB boost and 30dB cut available on each.
All you need is a speaker cab and this little guy. Order today.

Comments about Diago LS01 Little Smasher 5W Guitar Amp Head:
I got one of these thru an online deal. I wasn't expecting much. I already own a Tweaker Head, a 5w Epi head and the 16ohm matched Epi Cab (16ohm)
I took this little bad boy, put it at the end of my signal chain, hooked the Epi cab to it and was astonished at how good it sounded. Even the cruch tone was very usable. It had enough gain for almost everything I would want, which ranges from super clean funk to gritty RnR.
The tone controls are good, but not as sweeping as you might get with a good tube amp, and it depends on the pups in your guitar, to be honest. If you have good tone out of your guitar, the unit works well. If the tone outta your pups ain't so great, you'll definitely hear it.
For a small gig and for recording, this baby is what I will use. Why carry a 20lb amp when this works just as good?
