    Diezel VH4 Pedal---Does It Measure Up?

    Does this one live up to the hype? I know it's based on the VH4's channel 3, like the AMT D2. I would imagine the Diezel comes closer, while costing more. Any opinions out there, other than buying the actual amp? I understand a pedal only gets you in the ball park.

    Diezel VH4 Pedal and AMT Electronics D2

    I was about to pull the trigger on AMT's D2, and stumbled upon Diezel's VH4 Pedal. I understand that no pedal is identical to the amp it emulates, but reasonably close is good enough for me. Has anyone compared these two, and how similar are they to the actual VH4's channel 3?

    AMT Electronics D2, VT2, B2 & E2

    I posted a similar thread a few months back. I'm definitely getting the P2, and want a second AMT that provides a different flavor. I'm mainly leaning towards the D2, since it's "larger" but still pretty tight in the lows, rounder highs, less compressed than the P2, but still fairly high gain...

    Wah Pot Advice

    I'm planning on replacing the original pot in my Vox V848 Clyde McCoy reissue--it's become scratchy, and I'm having to use contact cleaner with increasing regularity. The 3 I'm considering are the following: Fulltone Wah Pot, Chase Tone Tru iCar, and CTS McCon-O-Pot 2. I do want it to have the...

    Mogami Gold or Lava Cable Clear Connect 2?

    I'm trying to decide between a Mogami Gold and Lava Cable Clear Connect cable to run from my guitar to the first pedal in my chain (usually my Decimator G String). The length would be either 18' for the Mogami, or 15' for the Lava. I know these are both good quality, but can anyone out there...

    Mad Professor Simble vs Weehbo Dumbledore

    I currently have a Mad Professor Simble, and am quite happy with it. It's my first (and only) D-style pedal, and I plan on keeping it, but I've also considered several others, including the Weehbo Dumbledore. Is there anyone out there that has compared these two pedals, and if so, what are the...

    Pedal For Mesa Mark IIC+ and Mark IV Tones

    I know that there's no substitute for an actual amp, but since I'm usually more of a Marshall JCM 800 crunch, Vox clean to slightly dirty, & Fender clean kind of guy, Mesa-like ultra high gain isn't a sound I plan on using that often anyway. SO--for certain songs or passages, I just want...

    Dumble ODS Style Pedal

    I know this subject has been run into the ground, but with all the pedals I own, I have yet to get one that approximates the D sound. Yes, I understand that no pedal will completely nail it, and yes, I own a tube amp. I use both humbuckers and single coils. I've been researching this for a...

    Vox V848 Mod Question

    I recently got a killer deal on a used Vox V848 Clyde McCoy reissue ($80, near mint condition, with the carrying bag). It works fine, and I like the overall tone & sweep, although I realize there are differences compared to a vintage Clyde. I don't really want to get a "build a Clyde" kit---this...

    Vox Wah Pedal Question

    I'm interested in 2 different Vox Wah pedals. One is the new v846-HW (hand wired), and the other is the v848 Clyde McCoy reissue. The latter is out of production, but can be found online. I have narrowed it down to these 2, and I'm hoping someone out there has used both of them and can provide a...

    Late 60's to Early 70's Marshall Tones

    Hello, everyone---this is my first time in the forum. First, let me say that I realize no pedal will completely duplicate a Marshall amp, but I'm not in the market for a new amp, so I have to settle for a pedal. I play both a Strat (Custom Shop '69 pickups) and a Les Paul Custom ('57 Classics...

    12AX7 Preamp Tube Replacement Question

    I am planning on replacing the 4 tubes of my Peavey Rock Master preamp (currently being modded by FJA mods for a more vintage, open sounding gain, for more classic rock & blues tones vs. tight, buzz-saw, modern metal gain). It currently has no-name Chinese 12AX7 tubes (probably budget-variety...
