    I can't get over how good this thing sounds, I'm running through a Bogner OS 2X12 and the tone is just huge. I think it's the first amp were the room acoustics play no role in sound quality. It sounds good everywhere I take it.
    I never thought I would like Vintage 30's but this thing loves them, and they still need to break in so it's actually going to get better.

    I will, I need to get back to playing guitar instead of amp shopping.
    This thing really covers allot of tones.

    I had a VH4 stereo. Really great amps ! And I'm not a metal guy.

    How do you find the lead tone on these badboys? I've heard a lot of great clips of the Einstein, and it impresses me every time.

    Truth be told I quite fancy one of the combos...

    I bet it sounds great - congrats!

    We need another amp fest soon. I'll bring over an Elmwood.

    I'm inspired to do another Tone Fest now, I need to get Arron at ProGuitarshop.com on board for this one so I need to check with him and see when he can be there. So this time it will be my Einstein and Bogner cab
    My Holland 4X10 Gibb Droll and my 74 Marshall Super Lead 100 with a 68 slant cab. And of course there will be beer.

    I've had both too, and did not take to the Bogner. They are very different amps which suit different styles. Bogner only had one usable channel for me the others were to compressed and over the top. Clean channel was not as good as the Einstein as far as I'm concerned. The Diezel covers a lot more ground and is more open sounding. I like the the idea of tube mixing, biasing is a snap, 2 loops it just goes on and on.
    But he as Frank Zappa said "what's the best advice you could give an aspiring rock guitar player? "play jazz".

    Yeah Einstein kicks it. I went to try a Herbert with my kid and we tried the Einstein next to it. Better tone for both of us. Clean is much nicer than an xtc to me.
    The lead channel is better too. Big open sound with more gain than I'll ever need.
    Nice thick tone and very responsive EQ.
    If I could footswitch the three modes of ch. 1 it would be as versatile as any amp I'd need.

    Just what I need, another amp.[​IMG]
    I'll have to sell a couple of Marshalls.[​IMG]

    Actually there is a very simple mod that a chimp could do that enables you to switch between modes.

    It really is the perfect amp.

    Thanks.:rolleyes:
    That was my excuse for holding off buying it. Well to my son anyway. Actually I'd heard of the mod and thought Diezel was going to incorporate it in production but they didn't obviously. But thanks for that link. Looks Diezel approved too.
    Are you going to do that mod?

    Yes, I have a foot switch left over from my Fuchs ODS 100. All I have to do is add one more switch and I have all 3 channels at my disposal.
    I might do it this weekend if I have time.
