    VHX vs VH4 + Axe-FX III

    As far as effects go, the VHX has all I need and then some. If too many options and endless tweaking was an issue you experienced with the Axe-Fx III then I think the VHX will really help you plug in and play without being too limiting. Now, that said, I am not a big effects user. Mostly just a...

    NGD: Diezel VHX and 412 FV

    That really surprised me too when mine showed up lol. I figured it'd have at least 4 like my Mesa cab.

    NGD: Diezel VHX and 412 FV

    Hey, I use the 16ohm mono output in the center.

    Posted the NGD when I got the cab, but here's my rig. Or at least the Diezel portion of it.

    NGD: Diezel VHX and 412 FV

    Thanks again! I feel I made the right choice with the VHX as well, so I'm not GASing for anything either. More curious than anything. Sounds like I actually may not enjoy the Hagen so much; I'm a very high gain kinda guy that doesn't like to need a boost/drive pedal of any kind, and I hear...

    NGD: Diezel VHX and 412 FV

    Thank you! Would really like to try some of the other models to compare. Herbert MK III is on the top of my list, but I'm intrigued by the Hagen as well, which I've seen you praise quite a lot around here. But it's hard to find anything Diezel, or really much in the way of high end amps in...

    NGD: Diezel VHX and 412 FV

    I've had the VHX for about 4 months now, I've probably raved enough about it in other threads already so I'll spare another long winded assessment of it unless someone is really curious about my thoughts. However, the cab just showed up today and I never made any sort of proper NGD post about...

    Help picking a diezel

    VHX is my recommendation for modern metal. From what I understand, it has more gain than the others, but still capable of achieving the sounds of all of Diezel's other amps. But with the extra bit of gain and flexibility to change the voicing to tighter sounds and go into its own thing, I find I...

    Questions for VH2 owners

    I'm pretty relieved to hear that, thanks for checking it out! Sometimes I second guess myself and worry "Is this too bright/shrill?" or "Do I just happen to enjoy sub-par guitar tones?" Haha. I have experimented with other settings, but they just don't sound and feel right for my style, too dark...

    Questions for VH2 owners

    Thanks, Leo. I'll give that a shot, though I did notice in my testing yesterday that the Engl was actually a lot harsher than I remembered with the cab facing directly at me. I think part of it was I raised the Engl's volume a tad to match what I had going with the VHX which perhaps made it less...

    Questions for VH2 owners

    I had this same experience with my VHX. Through the same speaker cabinet (A Mesa Rectifier 412 slant cab), my Engl SE sounds fairly consistent at any angle and almost better when facing the speaker directly. But the VHX sounds incredibly harsh and unpleasant in the same position, I have to angle...

    Need help with American voltage!

    This may have been me. My converter was labeled as only a 220 step up converter, but was measuring closer to 250 when I took a multimeter to the outlet. Fluctuations with power are somewhat normal from what I hear, but over 30v is pretty excessive. So to the OP, no matter which one you wind up...

    Best customer support

    This is why I bought a VHX without a second thought, even though I'm in Canada and there are no dealers around to be able to try one in person. Just from reading all the many posts on this forum over the years, I knew if I had any questions or issues, Peter would be on it, or in my case, Leo as...

    Diezel VHX Mute Function Issue

    Thank you for being so helpful. This is why I didn't hesitate to buy a Diezel even considering my luck with amps. You guys have shown many times in other people's posts over the years to consistently go above and beyond for customers. I sent a few other questions in my email whenever you get...

    Diezel VHX Mute Function Issue

    I sent you an email! For anyone following, the issue seems to have vanished for now after I pressed the mute button in a few times. Not sure if it's actually gone or is likely to arise again, but I'll update this thread for anyone interested who might be experiencing the same thing in the...
