Introducing | Diezel Amps & Pedals
The Chicago Music Exchange is proud to carry Diezel Amplification! The choice for top artists like Metallica, Tool’s Adam Jones, and more, Diezel manufactures premium tube amplifiers, cabinets, and pedals for contemporary players, engineered to provide uncompromising, vintage-inspired sound with progressive features and modern reliability.
New from Diezel, the VH Micro 30w Mini Amp Head offers the brand’s legendary tone in a compact, portable package, stuffing 30 wailing watts into a three-band mini chassis for a lightweight option that doesn’t pull any punches.
The D-MOLL 100w 2.5-Channel Tube Amp Head beefs things up, quadrupling the wattage and expanding the control set for additional tonal options.
For you full-sized fans, the flagship VH4 100w 4-Channel Tube Amp Head and streamlined VH2 100w 2-Channel Tube Amp Head represent what Diezel is all about, putting power, tone, and flexibility first with distinctly-voiced preamps, each with a unique control set.
Featuring a handbuilt Baltic birch cabinet, the Diezel 212 RV 2x12 Amp Cabinet is full and rich, loaded with two 12” Celestion Vintage 30s and 16 Ohm Stereo or 8 Ohm Mono connections.
The Zerrer 2-Channel Preamp & Distortion Pedal puts Diezel’s special spin on the pedalboard essential, acting as a distortion, practice amp, and studio direct amp for “Diezel-in-a-box” tones anywhere and everywhere.
The VH4 Overdrive & Preamp Pedal and VH4-2 2-Channel Overdrive & Preamp Pedal take this idea one step further, channeling Diezel’s legendary VH4 100W 4-Channel Tube Amp Head into a small effect suitable as an overdrive or standalone preamp.
Lastly, Diezel harnesses their unruly 180-watt behemoth into the Herbert 2-channel Overdrive & Preamp Pedal, a high-gain replication of the original featuring a three-band EQ and foot-switchable Midcut circuit.
Make the switch to handbuilt quality and high-octane tone. Call, click, or stop in today to shop Diezel Amplification amps, cabs, and pedals, new at the Chicago Music Exchange!
