OVERVIEW

A milestone in guitar amplification.

Launched in 1994 the VH4 was a milestone in guitar amplification. The head has a powerful 100 Watt section, 4 individual preamps, each with individual equalization and volume/gain controls and is fully midi switchable. At that time that was unique - a head which replaced refridgerator sized racks. Additionally the VH4 has serial and parallel loops and the so called channel inserts to add pedals specifically for each channel, like a analogue chorus just for clean or a compressor for crunch.

The four preamps are: clean, crunch, mega and lead. The clean channel (additional bright switch) has the Diezel-typical HiFi-clean, but with its gain pot is able to reproduce the powerful and warmer Hiwatt territory as well.

The crunch channel (also with bright switch) starts where the clean ends: warm, powerful clean sounds. Variation of the controls (volume, gain) will open the amp to sonic dimensions of semi-crunch and full crunch sounds.
The mega channel is the typical Diezel trademark sound. Nuff said. Try it, love it.

The lead channel starts, where the mega ends: more compression, more smoothness - a singing/screaming lead at its best.
The VH4 is the ultimate sound machine for numerous styles. With its deep section also suitable for many heavier styles, but also the perfect central for Top 40 guitarists looking for the whole spectrum of guitar sounds from yetsreday to today. Still a masterpiece - the VH4.

        Comments about Diezel VH4 100W Tube Guitar Head:

        Tone is very customizable depending on tube choices and pickups. They make a far bigger difference on this amp than others. If you get the right combination you end up with sparkling cleans on channel 1, very nice blues tone to incubus dirty tones all the way up to a KSE tone on channel 2 if boosted. Channel three is very tight and djenty boosted with crunchy lows and smooth highs or you can loosen it up via the bias to get the tool tone. Channel 4 is a touch smoother and great for solos. I've had this amp for 7 years and still haven't found anything else that can hang with it in any department tone wise. then there's all the loops and midi control..

        Comments about Diezel VH4 100W Tube Guitar Head:

        I once owned two of these models, bought them without hearing them......Ouch! I bought into the hype and was very disappointed. The clean channel is pretty nice. The second is a very dark version of classic rock. Third channel, very dark, not crunchy, no sustain, no top end. The fourth channel is the third channel with more gain, still not very crunchy, and yes very dark. I felt the amp was toneless, without soul, and very over priced. One of my biggest buyers remorse experiences EVER! I'm going to stick with Engl and modded Marshalls.

          Comments about Diezel VH4 100W Tube Guitar Head:

          Channels 3 and 4 are great for metal riffing.
          Channel 4 is a great lead channel.
          Channel 2 is great for crunchy classic rock riffs OR lower the gain for a great softer clean sound.
          Channel 1 is the clean channel. It is not the best clean tone I've heard, although it definitely improves if 6L6s are in the power amp.

          This amp sounds best with medium output humbuckers. Actives (EMG; Blackouts) sound a little flat on every channel. Don't get me wrong. I love actives, but not in this amp.

          Parallel Loop & Serial Loop work perfectly with quality effects processors.
