Get the incredible overdrive tone of the Diezel VH4.

For more than 20 years, the jaw-dropping tone of the Diezel VH4 amplifier has been heard on the world's biggest stages. Now Peter Diezel has made all the lush, dynamic overdrive character of the VH4's famous third channel in a rugged, built in USA, preamp pedal which delivers an authentic representation of it's namesake. The entire signal architecture is faithfully reproduced: Bass, Mid, Treble and Variable Deep and Presence controls allow you to tailor the unique overdrive character of the legendary VH4 amp.

  • Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble: Shapes the EQ and adjusts the overall gain.
  • Deep: Increases the ultra low frequency content - simulating the DEEP control on the VH4 amplifier.
  • Presence: Contours the high frequency content - simulating the PRESENCE control on the VH4 amplifier.
  • Master: Adjust the overall volume of the pedal.
  • Guitar input: Connect your guitar to this input.
  • Out to guitar amp: Connect to the front end of your amplifier.
  • Out to power amp: Connect to rack mount power amplifier or the return jack of your amp’s effects loop.
  • 12-18V Center Negative Included is a universal 12V power supply and 18V splitter cable.

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:

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.
