Diezel tone in a pedal

By danOm

from Eugene, OR

Best Uses

  • recording, low volume practice, backup rig

Comments about Diezel VH4 Overdrive Pedal:

This pedal definitely does capture the Diezel sound and FEEL. My main rig is the Diezel D-moll and this pedal sounds so close I can barely tell the difference. I plug it into a randall solid state, into the effects return so it is just the sound uncolored by the randall. I use it for low volume practice and it is very consistent with the diezel tone and dynamics- excellent note definition and clarity and insane amount of gain with very low noise. It sounds and feels like a high quality amp.

    Comments about Diezel VH4 Overdrive Pedal:

    I'll start by saying that I have owned a Diezel VH4 and that this pedal does a very good job of replicating channel 3 on that amp. The build quality of the pedal is excellent, and Diezel has done a great job of including all of the control features available to that channel of the amp on the pedal as well as even using the same type of knobs as used on the amp itself. The controls are all highly interactive and afford a great deal of flexibility in creating a wide pallet of tones from drive to highly distorted. ( note: if the gain knob is turned all of the way counter clockwise there will be no output from the pedal) The pedal can only be powered by the included power supply or by your own, no battery option is available. The unit runs on 12-18 volts so if you are planning on using your pedalboards' power supply you will need to use the included "Y" power cable to parallel two 9 volt outputs to give you 18 volts. The LED on the unit is super bright so you will have no question in your mind whether or not the pedal is engaged. This is a very good pedal if you are looking to re-creating the vibe of VH4. I am using the VH4 pedal through channel 1 (clean) of my Mesa Road King II

    Service and delivery comments:

      Comments about Diezel VH4 Overdrive Pedal:

      I use this pedal for the "Diezel" tone in my rig. This pedal really does an excellent job of capturing the feel and vibe of channel 3 of the VH4 amp! I owned a VH4 for several years and although the type of music that I play has changed a bit over the years from time to time I still want that tone that the VH4 provided....this pedal does a very good job of getting me 95% of the way there. I looks like Diezel has done a very good with this pedal, even down to the type of control knobs used on the actual amp are used on the pedal as well as their control functions. The controls themselves are very adjustable and interactive. Build Quality is very good and there is no mistaking if the pedal is on, it has a very bright LED to let you know if it is engaged. The pedal can only be powered with its supplies power supply or with your own pedal board power supply ( no battery option) but it does come with a "Y" cable to allow you to combine two 9 volt outputs of a power supply for 18 volts. I am very pleased with the performance of the pedal and can highly recommend it to anyone.

      Comments about Diezel VH4 Overdrive Pedal:

      This has a great sound and is meant to be used on a clean channel of an amp. How close it compares to the real amp I couldn't say. I own the Friedman BE-OD as well and this has a different sound. The BE has a lot more treble this more mids. I find I like this a little bit better but it is not as high gain as the Friedman in my opinion.
