Yea, bare amounts of money though (sly necro bump)

Also, I have new clips up, had time now to run in decent tones with the VH4. Admitidly it's not what I personally would have the amp as, but in terms of imitating the tones of who I'm covering, I think they're pretty bitchin. Check em out and see what you think.

Awesome I will do - I don't think necrobumping this kind of thread matters...does it? idk

My band just finished recording our first 3 track EP, where the Peavey and Diezel will actually sound good in stereo I'll be sure to do some shameless self advertising after we have it uploaded and available for download

I cant see a necrobump being bad on THE Diezel thread, if it were just a Nad or somthing then id think it would be ban hammers at dawn!

So we all getting along with our Diezels then hmm?

I was thinking about trading my Einy for somthing 3 channel but then when I thought about it properly I just cant walk away from the Texas and lead channels.

Yeah they are truly awesome, *although* I wouldn't hesitate to change (somehow) my Einy for a Herbert for a second

Ugly.

My Herbert looks way more hawt than that thing; still - Pretty cool, but Diezel has improved the design since the first ones, I can't imagine this one sounding better, the only reason it's desirable is because it's the first one


Oh well, I'm sure someone on RT will buy Brad's amp.

agreed. the herbert (and vh4 for that matter) has gone through so many damn design changes over the years that the current amps are like a distant cousin to the originals, and judging by the ones i've played most recently, they've only gotten better.

#1 is kinda' cool though
the guy selling it must be counting on the serial # for the WOW COOL factor... way overpriced imo.

I have a vh4 and I'm shopping for cabs to play through. Despite the large chunk of money I threw down on the head, I don't have an ass ton to get cabs with. I play in a 3-piece prog. metal band and I'm looking for 2 cabs to fill up the stage sound that will keep channel 3 nice and chunky and channel 1 clear and warm.

I asked the diezel forum on rig talk and they, of course, suggested diezel cabs. I'm not really looking to spend 3000 dollars, as that would take me a couple more months to feel okay spending, and I need the cabs relatively soon. What do you guys play through? pros/cons?

I can recommend Splawn cabs. They are very well made and won't break the bank. Also, there was A Diezel 4x12 in Texas somewhere about a month ago for like $425.

The Diezel cab is just a good match. Got mine for $750 shipped on eBay. The Bogner Uberkab is also supposed to sound great with it. Then there's the standard Mesa, Mills, Orange, etc. That are tried and true.

If you don't mind going the custom route, Emperor cabinets are brilliant. They're not nearly as expensive as Diezel. You can choose what speakers you like to install, but the cheapest option would be the stock Weber 65 they use. It's Weber's take on the Celestion G12-65, a great all round speaker.

However, if you want something with more cutting presence, a Splawn cabinet with K100's and Vintage 30's in an 'X' pattern would be the best. It won't be particularly cheap but it at least won't be $3000, and you can customize the tolex to match the VH4, unlike the Emperor.

Avatar make decent cabinets as well.

The other cabinet company that many, many Diezel users go for is Mills Acoustics. They speciliaze in cabinets with K100's and Vintage 30's placed in an 'X' pattern, and they are oversized like an Orange or an Emperor so the low-end is really quite impressive. The price isn't unreasonable.

The last two companies I'd suggest would be Fryette and Vader. They both are able to cope with the tightness of the VH4, and they look the part. You can find a Vader or Fryette cabinet for quite cheap second-hand. They don't hold their value as well as a Diezel cabient.

Correct! The V30 X T75 combo.
