Diamond Amplification

From clean to 80's style gain to all out ferocity.

It features a clean channel and two distinct high gain settings in Channel 2. The Diamond Amplification Phantom tube guitar amp head has a more traditional high gain structure. Take you favorite amp and inject steroids and decongestants into, and you have the Phantom. Channel 2 also features DA's signature dual volume/gain design. This feature gives the player the option of having two gain settings that are accessible on the fly.

The Phantom features DA's signature "low focus" switch on the rear panel. The low focus switch provides three positions--low, mid and high. The Phantom also features an effects loop. Just plug a cable into the effects send and the loop activates. The front panel features a master volume, which reads E. Return. When the loop is on, the E. Return knob acts as the amp's overall master.

Built using the highest quality components and construction. Every component was selected and tested for this head. It uses six 12AX7 preamp tubes and four Svetlana "Winged C" EL34 tubes in its power stage. A hexagon pattern perforated metal grille made in 16-guage steel with a unique silver vein finish offers the Phantom eye-grabbing good looks.

      Comments about Diamond Amplification Phantom USA Custom Series 100W Modern Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I procured a Phantom about 4 years ago and it has served me very well during that time. For high gain, it it more balanced than any of Mesa's product offerings and has a delightful pallet of different tonal options. Depending on your channel selection it can go from chimey clean, to a clean boosted blues, to gnarly rhythm, to scooped mids, to foot to the floor distortion and high gain soloing. I've never played an amp that can make so many different tones.

      Aesthetically, it is gorgeous as well as solid and well constructed. Being able to choose 50W or 100W is a nice feature as well. I play it regularly so I've had to change the power-tubes once since I've owned it to SED Winged C's (now discontinued, so use Svetlana) and also put a 12AT7 in clean slot to make it extra pure.

      I would love if it had some reverb, but true reverb usually interferes with the circuitry, so it's probably best it doesn't have that option.

      The bottom line is that it's an absolutely tasty amp, well worth the money, that will last you a lifetime.

      Comments about Diamond Amplification Phantom USA Custom Series 100W Modern Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      Excellent, more traditional tones. Based on the british rock and metal high gain amps, but with much more oomph! A bit pricey, but to be honest, this is the only amp I use for recording rhythm tones with now (when I used to live by the 5150 and Rectifiers in the studio)

          Comments about Diamond Amplification Phantom USA Custom Series 100W Modern Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I have owned my Phantom for over two years, and I am still amazed by the tones I can coax out of it. One of the greatest features is the design of the effects loop, which gives you the ability to play at indoor levels while maintaining your tone. I highly recommend this amp.
