Diezel Einstein Combo
This is the kind of amp that gets you familiar with the brand that eventually if things go right allow you to move into the flagship amp that amplifier companies sell for higher profit. This is a cool little amp that has some versatility but will always sound like a Diezel. I didn't find much use for it other than the higher gain channel/ mode. The first channel is a clean to moderate sizzle if you can call it that. The second seems more of options to fill the amp rather than make it usable. The third mode called Mega is where this thing really shines. It has a great and very forgiving gain staging...which is what I feel Diezel does best. There gain is world renown and it makes it hard to do much else with the amp. Control are as follows.

Output: 50 Watt
Channels: 2 independent channels. channel one with three modes (Clean, Texas, Mega)
Loops: Serial and paralel
Equalization: Each channel treble, middle, bass addtionally presence and deep for the output section

UTILIZATION

One thing Diezel is known for is making a very user friendly front panel layout. It could get intimidating if your used to plexi layouts but with just minutes you can pretty much figure this out if you have spent anytime turning on a computer.

The first couple modes were pretty pointless to me. It didn't feel or really sound like something you would use for Texas blues or classic rock crunch. They can do those tones some what but for me Diezel is all about the crunch that they do so well.

The high output gain really came alive when engaged and I felt like goofing around with this thing until I click this option on. I think Diezel could just save some money and make this a one channel amp with this function only. However, someone else may find the first two modes somewhat of use.

I didn't use any manual because it was used and for me I am familiar with Diezels so I didn't think it was necessary. Tone really comes from playing around with your preferred settings anyway. So just playing around for a few minutes will have ample amount of amp discovery.

SOUNDS

I was using a PRS and a Strat for most of my playing with this amp and I pretty much stay on the Mega mode function. It seems most amps try to do many things but do one thing really well.....Mega mode to me is what it does really well. So I stayed on that function the entire time. Though this combo comes with a Celestion K100 speaker I think it might do a bit more justice it is have some sort of greenback speaker. Since it has this Texas tone thing going on I would like a lower wattage speaker to get those early speaker distortion tones.

The tone I was chasing was a saturated gain that would be present in heavy rock/metal. I didn't try any drop tunings with it. Not really the player that I am so just 440 and half step is where I generally stay.

I would say that the EQ was very efficient and usable throughout the spectrum. For me I find that sweet spot and stick with it. Once I got to Mega mode I didn't veer to far from that point.

OVERALL OPINION

I think this amp is a little over priced for what it is. It is built very well but I just didn't find much use for the other functions. The quality and workmanship was done very well.

At new this amp is $3800, which is a lot of money. I know that there is a lot of freight added coming from Germany, so if you want this amp I would suggest getting it on the used market and let someone else take the hit for you.

I've played the VH4, Herbert, Schimdt, and the Einy. This one is a good intro into the Diezel club. I had fund playing it at lower volumes and stage levels as well. This is a keeper amp, unless you want to get a Herbert or VH4.

nicocostantini's review"Not only a Metal Monster..."

Diezel Einstein Combo
The Diezel Einsten is available as a 50W or 100W all tube head, or as a 50W combo. All units are hand made in Germany. It is a 2 channel amp with independent EQ for each channel
Also equipped with 2 loops: a parallel and Serial and can take a wide variety of power amp tubes: EL34, 6550, and has external bias points. Mine is equipped with Ruby El34BHT (stock tubes)

Channel 1 has three independent modes that share the same EQ: Clean, Crunch and Mega. And channel 2 is the Lead channel. Both voiced specifically for their purpose

Controls: Gain, Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass, Presence and Depth and Dual Master Volumes (Footswitchable). No MIDI.

The back of the amp has inputs for 4, 8 and 16 Ohm loads, as well as the Send and Returns for both effects loops and the footswitch

UTILIZATION

Very easy amplifier to set up and dial in the sounds. Sounds very good with all knobs at 12' Oclock. The construction is top notch, the attention to detail is spectacular. The customer support from Diezel is first class, although I have never had a single issue with the amp. The amplifier is easy to service and change tubes due to the external bias points, which avoids having to send the amp to a qualified tech every time you want to change something.


SOUNDS

The amp is not only a metal monster as one might expect. It is the most vintage voiced of all the Diezel line, with the exception of the Schmidt.

Channel 1 Mode 1 (Clean): The clean channel is really good for a high gain amp. It is a very neutral sounding clean. Goes from very clean to slight breakup, depending of course on the guitar and nature of the pickups.

Channel 1 Mode 2 (Texas): This channel can do everything and might be the flagship of the amplifier. It goes from clean with the volume rolled off in the guitar to JCM800 type Marshall tones. Hit it with a clean boost and you have enough gain for almost any application. Very british in nature, lots of note articulation and definition.

Channel 1 Mode 3 (Mega): Best suited for high gain rhythm playing. Can cope with detuned riffs easily and has a unique voicing that gives the Diezel trademark sound. The low end stays very tight. Can be used for soloing although it is not quite liquid. Has enough gain for any style including the heaviest of modern metal music.

Channel 2: Very liquid distortion better suited for soloing, has more gain than the Mega mode in the first channel. Lots of harmonics and definition. Excellent for what it is meant

OVERALL OPINION

My only complaint is that the modes on the first channel are not footswitchable and that the amplifier is not MIDI equipped.

Having said that the Diezel Einstein is a precision built quality amplifier that should last a lifetime.

I would buy the amp once again with no hesitation .
