Huge tone and range from an amp with insane amounts of gain.
The Diezel Paul is a 45-watt head that delivers sparkling cleans to great dirty sounds paired added by a singing lead channel from a pair of JJ KT77 output tubes and six 12AX7 preamp tubes. Features include three MIDI-switchable preamp sections ("clean", "crunch" and "insane"), a MIDI-controllable reverb, MIDI-controlled FX loops (series and parallel) and much more.
The classic Diezel tone is present and accounted for. The Paul reacts fast to the touch, but with a smooth, even touch. Its exceptional dynamic response lets your guitar broadcast its true personality with clarity and “air.” Diezel amps are revered for their expansive, “open” character that allows the player to explore a myriad of musical sounds and styles. Make no mistake, this is not a “faceless” amp—it’s simply capable of stunningly versatile performance.
The “Clean” channel (channel 1) is crystal clean for most of its range, but offers just a bit of compression and overdrive when the gain control is maxed. This is a huge, sparkly-yet-warm-sounding clean channel, at home comping jazz chords or squeezing out funk rhythms.
The crunch channel (channel 2) has a natural, robust quality—think Texas blues to heavy rock rhythm to smooth medium-to-high gain solo sounds.
The “Insane” channel (channel 3) starts at a heavy saturated rhythm sound to fully realized blazing lead tones. Nice and creamy when you roll back the guitar's tone knob a little, but brutal when you crank it all the way up.
The Paul boasts a reverb with independent level adjust for channel 1 and channels 2/3. The Paul's master section features dual Volume controls, a global Presence knob and a “Deep” control, which offers to boost the low frequencies at 90 Hz.

Comments about Diezel Paul 45W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:
I tried a Diesel Herbert about 10 years ago and while it was quite an impressive amp from a quality and feature set standpoint, It sounded good but I didn't really find it very inspirational to play. Since that experience I never really had a desire to own other Diezel products but with the Paul and the goal to have a 'Vintage' voiced amp, which to me would mean a more airy (less filtered), a degree less hard feeling to play amp and I really wanted to check it out.
The Paul is really build solidly.. nothing feels cheap and it really projects high quality. This is a Diezel strong point.. everything feels thick and solid.
Sound.. well, I'm more than happy with the amp tones! Very impressed actually. This still sounds like a Diezel amp but the end result are very, very musical tones with a fantastic feel.. the sweep of tones along all the gain and volume pots for all three channels are very versatile.. everything can be a sweet spot. What I mean by musical is that there are no annoying overtones or frequencies.. but the tone is still complex and interesting. Tone is full bodies.. and the volume taper is very interesting .. you can go very, very low volume and the amp sound fantastic.. instead of finding the mids and bottom end rolling off, I find that it is the highs that tend to roll off.. mids and bass remain.
As hoped, the amp has a great feel.. there is some compression going on with channel 2 and 3 but the amp rides a nice line there .. its not over compressed.. but that is definitely a characteristic of this amp.
Finally, very versatile with instruments.. sounds exceptional with single coils, vintage hum buckers and high output hum buckers.. If I was told I could only keep one amp, I think this one would a high contender for the one I'd keep.
