Diamondhead is a Multistage Distortion + Boost pedal that captures the tone and feel of a hot-rodded tube amp being pushed by a drive or boost pedal â€°Ã›Ã’ the guitar sound that defined classic 70s and 80s Metal and Hard Rock.
Three powerful active EQ controls maximize the potential of the gain section. A tightly defined bass control boosts and cuts atâ€°Ã›Ã¸80 Hz, with surgical precision â€°Ã›Ã’ making the low end huge, but never muddy. A broader mid-range control set right atâ€°Ã›Ã¸800â€°Ã›Ã¸Hz allows for massive scooped chunk, hyper aggressive modern attack, and everything in between. And the Treble control, set at 6 kHz, adds sizzle, cut, and attack.
Theâ€°Ã›Ã¸SATâ€°Ã›Ã¸Switchâ€°Ã›Ã¸(based on our 805 Overdrive) adds a 24dB pre-gain boost that tightens up the low end for more aggressive and defined attack. Subtly rolling off lows and highs, it allows the mid-range to cut through, creating chewy, harmonic saturation.
Independent from the Drive section, the Boost (activated with the left footswitch) offers 0 to 15 dB of available gain and can be used as a lead boost or to push an amp on the edge into overdrive. Try using it with a slightly dirty amp as the first gain stage and adding the Drive section for your highest gain sounds.
Diamondheadâ€°Ã›Ã¸also shines as a pre-amp. By running it into the effects return of your tube amp, or in front of ourâ€°Ã›Ã¸PowerStageâ€°Ã›Ã¸power amps youâ€°Ûªll be rewarded with a hot-rodded high gain amp tone with body, bite, and character.
