slanted front panels


New member
I'm curious why Diezel decided to stop the slanted front panel after the VH4? (Though it looks like it will be back on the VH Mini)

It's a cool distinctive design. I think the ergonomics are great, since usually you're looking down at the amp.

The diagonal knob layout on the VH4 are also distinctive, and the knobs are grouped in a way that makes the layout easy to understand.

Yeah, the VH4 knob layout is quite good--other amp brands with all the controls straight across seemed weird and less clear to me after using it. That said, I think it can be improved by adding a little separation ("white space") between the EQ portion and the gain/volume controls to distinguish them better from each other. But maybe that would be tough due to the limited space and internal layout.
