Diamond Pedals brings an immense amount of innovation to the world of guitars. The company’s pedals are found on pedalboards of world famous guitar players. For example, The Edge uses the Diamond VIB1 Vibrato, Andy Timmons uses the TRM1 Tremolo and Ed O’Brien and Johnny Marr use the CPR1 Compressor.
Diamond Pedals was founded by Michael Knappe who holds close to 30 patents in the field of psychoacoustic and signal processing algorithms. The company’s goal is to create pedals that improve the sound quality of the modern guitar player while maintaining the familiar product usability. You will not find any Diamond Pedals effect to be a clone of some other famous pedal as each of their pedals really stands on its own.
