Rising from the firmly entrenched Diezel VH4 legacy, the VH2 100-watt head roars with the same detailed cleans, punchy mid-gain, and ferocious distorted tones that have come to define the Diezel name. Because some players found the VH4’s feature-rich layout more than their needs dictated, the VH2 has stripped away anything that could slow down your tonal journey. While all of the legendary tones are accounted for, the amp’s two channel design makes them even easier to access. Its two button footswitch takes on-the-fly tonal changes down to laser-like precision. And a single transparent series effects loop is ideal for translating all of your time-based effects. The VH2 packs 100 watts of all-tube Diezel tone into a straight-forward amp that demands to be experienced.

One of the finest lineages in high-gain amplification The impossibly tight tones of the VH4 3rd channel are so revered that many players don’t see the need to use any of the amp’s other features. It’s with that in mind that we crafted the VH2. All of the best tones of the VH4, with nothing that will get in your way..

  • Tonal character directly derived from the legendary VH4
  • Immediately identifiable VH front panel
  • 2-channel design sweeps through the whole gain range of the original amp

  • Single series effects loop offers transparent tonal control
  • 2-button footswitch for channel and master volume selection

Diezel Pedals

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.
