Additional info:  The Diezel VH4 is a 100 watt guitar amp head. It has a 100 watt output, four individual preamps stocked with 12AX7's that each offer equalization, volume and gain controls and is fully midi switchable. Each channel delivers one of the most sought-after guitar tones and means the player can access these without making major changes to their amplifier. The sound controls are efficient and balanced in this amplifier. The VH4 is a versatile and powerful amplifier that delivers almost any tone you could need - a real investment! See below for more details:

Channel One (Clean)- This channel was designed for clean, undistorted sound with high power and good harmonics. With it’s gain control to the upper third, it sounds soft and warm, gain at lower settings produce more percussive and penetrating clean sounds. Full gain setting makes crunch sounds possible. The tone reminds of a cross between a twin and a Hiwatt® 100, but with better overall dynamic response.

Channel Two (Crunch)- Channel 2 is a blues guitarists closest friend. It’s dynamic spectrum is especially beautiful in the lower frequency range. It’s gain range goes from clean to distorted. Due to it’s different voicing the 2nd channel will sound a little softer than channel one in clean mode ( gain 2:00-3:00, and approaches channel 3’s tone in high gain mode ( gain 3:00-4:00, but with softer midrange and less compression. “Raw” probably best describes this channel.

Channel Three (Distortion)- It’s concept is heavy rhythm guitar. The distortion is noticeably tighter than in channel 2. The side effect of this added compression is that he signal gets somewhat limited in it’s dynamic range. This limitation hits mostly the lower frequencies. This loss is corrected by a negative feedback loop to the power amps, which adds fat low end to this tone without muddling up the tone. The control for this low end is in the master section and bears the “Deep” designation. The gain structure of channel 3 is designed to deliver great distorted sound even with guitars that have relatively low output, like many vintage guitars. The side effect here is that guitars with very high output (active EMG® etc.) might overdrive this channel too much and become too compressed. The guitar loses it’s punch in the band sound and becomes very undefined. In this case, a radical gain reduction is the cure. The guitar sound will clean up a little bit, and the overtones and harmonics will once again sparkle. It is best to start with a 12:00 o-clock gain setting and start to feel your way to the point of perfection and very little compression. This works best while the band is playing with you. Remember - less is often more.

Channel Four (Ultra High Gain)- The Solo channel. A little more mid heavy then channel 3, therefore punches through the band sound quite well. See channel 3 description for gain control setting. Often a gain setting near 1:00 o’clock is sufficient for absolute high gain distortion. Use the volume control here and for all other channels to match the individual channel volumes
