The best bits of a Del Fuego in a smaller package.

The Diamond Amplification Positron was born from their wildly popular Del Fuego. The Positron takes your favorite parts of a Del Fuego and wraps them up in this smaller, more portable and cost effective package. The Positron is exactly as the name implies--extremely small and positively charged. This amp is hand-built in the time-honored tradition of sought after 1960s British models. It delivers revered vintage-type distortion without the "domestic havoc" and it is lightweight enough to save your back while still having the power to be gigable even in combination with two 4x12s. Like the Del Fuego, each Positron is hand wired on a hand-built fiberglass eyelet board using components selected for reliability and superior sonic character. The Positron features one channel, with only a Volume and Tone knob to contend with, the Positron uses three 12AX7 tubes, two EL84 tubes and a solid state rectifier.

  • Volume, Tone, On/Off and Standby controls
  • One channel
  • Black Tolex covering
  • Etched zinc logo
  • Three 12AX7 tubes
  • Two EL84 tubes
  • 18W

Comments about Diamond Amplification Positron Vanguard Series 18W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Bought it on a whim to try something new. Couldn't even turn it up past 1 when trying in the store. LOUD little amp. Simple use with only 2 knobs. Better for us OCD type. Most people EQ their amps with pedals anyways. Match with a good partial open back cab for best tones. Buy one and feel like a champion!
