The only place on the web to discuss Diezel amps with other owners, Diezel reps and even the mastermind himself, Peter Diezel!

Hey folks, I've been pretty much enamored with my Herbert MKI since I bought it in February this year. I own about 13 tube amps, and most of them have not gotten much use since I picked up ol' Herbie, including my Friedman JJ100
I'd like to pick up another Diezel to check out without breaking the bank, as I already have too much tied up in gear. The 2 that I'm seeing that catch my interest are an Einstein and a D-moll. I know the Einstein is sort of the predecessor to the D-Moll, and has less features.
I play in 2 different bands, one is a thrash metal band, the other is a drop-c hatebreed style hardcore band. My tone is dial and go, and in both bands I usually strive for tight, percussive chugs with clear mids and highs, as my other guitarist typically uses a 5150 or mesa single rectifier, and he goes for the fuller, more saturated tone.
Pros and cons of either amp, considering what I'll be using it for?

If you’re wanting a tight, surgical tight low end for thrash with respect to the DMoll you’ll need some type of OD or eq up front. Ive had great results with a VFE standout or 10band EQ neutering the problem low Hz that i dont like.

Hey there, appreciate the input. I boost all of my amps out front, regardless of how naturally tight they are. It's just a part of my sound. I use the MXR M77 so I have more control over the lows and low mid frequencies, to ensure the amp doesn't become too thin sounding if it's already tight and dry.
