I think the H&K TriAmp MK II is the most attractive of all my amps. Can be an attention whore.

Two years later, and I would STILL kill a pack homeless men with a stick and a stapler for a Diezel.

Any Diezel fanatics know how rare the blue face VH4 is compared to the Silver face? I've been searching for one at the right price.

Also, why are there so few Diezel fans here on UG??

It's not particularly more rare.
A bit, yeah, but not particularly.

Also they are different amps - the blue faceplated one is stereo.

Also 311, what are you gonna go 'round saying now, that the standard grille on the bogner ubershall is better than the metal grille?
Damn what is the world coming to...

I would kill for a VH4.

I just don't care for the layout of the faceplate.

I am assuming Peter did that to get all those frickin pots in there.

The grills on the VH4 and Uber are fine by me.

Nick - try using the Cool Look Up link in my sig to find gear.

Fixed.


I'd still really like to try a Hagen, but the only Diezel I'd buy again is an Einstein, if the price was right.

The original Blue-face came with 6L6 tubes but the newer (limited run) ones were loaded with EL34BHTs and are the same as the Silver-face from 2011.

According to Peter Diezel (RT's Diezel forum), the original Blue had "less Presence" than the Silver. There have been a couple of revisions and the concensus is that the 2007-2010 models are hotter than the originals. Then there were tweaks from 2011.

Audition them and snag the one you like. Among the active VH4 owners, I believe LP_CL and I prefer the VH4 over the Herbert, which MatrixClaw swears by. I've rolled tubes on the Herbert and its low Mids and Bass are still too much.

The stereo model is the VH4S.

The newer Uberschalls including the Twin Jet now come with the sexier Comet tolex but I prefer the aesthetics of the metal grill of the previous model.

Ehhh... the Herbert was my dream amp for years, but once I finally bought one, I'd already bought and sold practically every other amp in existence, and the Herbert just didn't live up to the hype in my mind anymore. I agree with you, the low mids and bass are too much for me, as well - but I also don't think the VH4 is anything to write home about. A cool amp, but there's dozens of others that do similar tones for far less money IMO

The Hagen seems to be more up my alley, as it's kind of a cross between the Herbert and VH4, from what I've read. Something in the middle of those would be ideal for me, but I just can't bring myself to spend that much money on an amp anymore. If buying and selling tons of gear has taught me anything, it's that there's a cutoff where things become better and instead just become different.

Same, although I still haven't tried the Krank which you like so much.

The Hagen is indeed sorta in-between the VH4 and Herbert; so, it lost the VH4's awesome channel 3. I liked the Einstein and need to try the Lil Fokker.

Edit: I think Matt's Hagen didn't last a month.

not one but two amazing amps
Damn I love that metal grille

Though it kinda feels like the PDK on a cayman vs whatever automatic transmission on whatever relatively cheap car - it's something not that special that costs a shit ton of many for what it is because it's an optional on an expensive product.

But if I had the money for such an amp, I'd get that grille whatever the cost.

Gimme the list!

I want a cheapish amp with the same clarity of a VH4.
Thing is, I think the transformers needed to get such clarity alone cost twice as my amp and cab together.
