Inspired by the Mesa Boogie Rectifier, the Heart Attack offers metal players that classic hard rock high gain sound. You can pull it out of your pocket and unleash an unimaginable mass of energy plugged in, all without losing control. You get that classic Rectifier tone in a low-wattage, ultra-portable package.

The simplified control layout features a single volume, along with a user-friendly 3-band EQ with bass, mid, and treble controls. You will be able to dial up warm, clean tones or a huge overdriven ‘stack’ sound.  Speaker out can automatically fit cabinets of different impedances ranging from 4-16 ohms that will drive whichever speaker cabinet you desire. There's even a headphone output for late night practicing, so you can jam into the wee hours of the morning. Additional premium features include an FX LOOP for using external effects, and Master Volume and Gain controls. A 18V DC power supply Adapter  is included.

Wish I had one of these when I first learned how to play


This amp is very compact and easy to setup. It is loud for 5W. A lot of fun to play. Sounds better to me than any distortion pedal I have tried. The value of this amp is amazing.

Unbelievable sound from such a tiny head


This packs a punch. Amazing distortion quality from such a tiny box. Not too noisy. Good effects loop. Plenty of volume for practice or recording. Tried with a maxon od808 upfront and it screams. Best low wattage amp I have ever played that doesn't cost over $500

Cool sounding amp by Hotone!!


Sounds great!!! Really emulates the sound of a rectifier. Loud and very portable!! Works great with a single 12" cabinet. "This is a real hands on product review from [email protected] Sam Ash Orlando"

Big Sound in a small package


This 5 watt little tone monster is great for recording and practicing. Styled like the Boogie Recto, plugging in a Les Paul and cranking up the gain it goes straight to a convincing metal sound while adjusting the controls can get you to a ZZ top style Hard Blues Crunch. This is a hands on review by Jim at Sam Ash Columbus

Pocket size, monster tone


This is an impressive tiny head. The sound is crunchy even at lower volumes which makes it great as a small practice amp. It's pocket sized so it's easy to bring to a friends' house to jam when you don't want to lug a heavy rig. The addition of a headphone output allows for easy practice. This is a lot of bang for your buck. This is a hands on review from Max @ Sam Ash Lombard

Premium guitar tones


The Nano Heart Attack by Hotone is a high gain guitar amp head that is perfect for metal and rock players looking for a great sounding portable amp head. The Heart Attack is a 5 watt amp head like no other as it is highly compact, at only 128mm wide and 59.5mm high. This amp head will leave you speechless as its massive, powerful tones come from something that can literally fit in the palm of your hand. You can pull it out of your pocket and unleash an unimaginable mass of energy plugged in, all without losing control.

Pleasantly surprised by this little gem! Don't be fooled by the small size. Dynamite comes in small packages and it sounds KILLER! 5 watts and selectable ohms..Honestly just buy the whol line of these little heads cause they rock! hands on product review from Lee @ Sam Ash Cincinnati

If you want a pocket sized Mesa boogie and didn't want to spend thousands I dare you to try this. It has all that great boogie tone for under $200 and can fit in any gig bag. Don't have a cab? No problem you can run it with headphones or you can get the tiny extension cab they offer. Or go for the full metal stack and plug it into you 4x12!
