Diezel Creates US Branch, And More
Diezel sound in a vintage packagePublished on 08/18/11 at 11:46
Although these heads may look pretty small compared to other Diezel amps they are still pretty heavy. This one is around 50 pounds. This is mostly due to the Class A power section that the amp has. It looks a lot like the old Mesa MK heads which were pretty small.
This is the most important part of any amp. The clean tones are huge on this amp once you dial in a bit of reverb. It is very easy to get a good clean tone from this amp. The clean tones just have the slightly hint of breakup. I like this in a clean tone as it makes it sound more organic. If you crank the clean channel you can even get a usable distortion tone. You can get a nice loose stoner or doom metal tone with the clean channel cranked and maybe a bit of drive on it. The eq controls are super responsive on this amp. The overdrive and dirty tones are what Diezels are known for. With the EL34's that this amp comes with stock you get more of the classic British overdrive sound. All the tones have a smooth quality to them. You can turn up the treble without it becoming harsh and painful. The overdrive channel has a nice clean tone to it as well as it cleans up very well with an adjustment to the volume knob on your guitar. Lead tones are nice and smooth like a high gain amp but they still have a bit of bite to them and crunch.
While this amp may not be a fire breathing monster like other Diezel amps it can still hold its own and it does it with a more vintage British vibe. It has a looser less compressed feel to it which is nice. If you want a good rocking high end amp but want it to have more of a classic feel the Diezel Schmidt is a good option if you can afford it.
