    My last clip was described as "dull" and "lifeless" (I agree), so I wanted to redeem myself. :)

    This is a MIJ Les Paul Custom copy with a Duncan JB in the bridge and '59 in the neck, Diezel Einstein 100-watt head with two SED 6L6's and two stock Ruby EL34's, Diezel Vintage 30 loaded 2x12" cab (left), Diezel Eminence loaded 2x12" cab (right) and Shure SM57's all around.

    You can pan your playback system left and right to hear the differences between the two speakers.

    Your thoughts?

    Oh yeah, I run through the channels/modes in the following order:

    Channel 1, Mode 1 (clean)
    Channel 1, Mode 2 (texas)
    Channel 1, Mode 3 (mega)
    Channel 2 (mega+)

    I loved everything about that amp and those clips. I am leaning towards trading for one and you just made my decision alot easier. Any idea what these things are selling for used? It will help me price out my trade the right way.

    Thanks! It's a killer amp in my opinion... I'm seeing them sell used for anywhere from $2,200-2,500.

    It is a great sounding amp.

    What a huge mod that would be if you could footswitch between the modes. Of course they would be thinking that this steps on the VH4 customer space. But I could see them flying out the door (myself being one of those holding) if it had this kind of 'on the fly' personality.

    It's a VERY easy mod to make the modes footswitchable. I could even do it myself. I don't think I will, though.

    I could never do it myself. I'd fry myself working on innards. At any rate, I wouldn't spend that much money on an amp that I'd have to mod...too many other options out there that work 'out of the box'.

    What WOULD be cool tho, is to create an outboard switchbox in the form of an expanded pedal. They could sell it as an option (are you listening Diezel?)

    I understand, but IF you really love the tone from an Einstein, I wouldn't let the fact that the modes aren't footswitchable persuade you to pass on the amp. The amp can be SLIGHTLY modded to make them footswitchable. It's simple and like I said, it can be done by a non-tech type. Or if you wanted to pay someone to do it, I bet it wouldn't be more than $50.

    Also, you don't have to drill any holes for the footswitch jack AND the mod is very easily reversed.

    I totally agree... it's only a switch... it's not like your changing out capacitors or output transformers. Any amp tech can do the mod.. you just exchanging one type of switch for another.

    Thanks guys! This clip was done with my 100-watt model Einstein. I've heard that the voicing of the 50-watt and 100-watter are really close, since Peter Diezel revoices them around their power section to ensure the same tone from both models.

    I have the 50 watter and it sounds just like the 100 watters I've played at various GC's here in Ohio. If anything it may be a bit smoother but alot of that depends on tubes, cab/speakers, etc. Even the headroom on the clean modes are pretty similar.
