Simple, yet versatile! In Short â The 902 is as rich as an overdriven tube amplifier when it comes to sound. It is an nonlinear, simple overdrive which we found to be pretty versatile yet simple. It is based on multiple discrete transistor gain stages placed in series, with each stage using a different type of gain circuit, resulting in a complex, nonlinear amplification response. Simple gain pedals can be tricky. It is all about what's under the hood. With the 902 Diamond pedals, as always, took the job seriously and created a simple UX pedal that actually delivers a wide range of sound options. The combination of multiple discrete transistors on the gain side with their amp-like tone stack lets you drive the 902 from light dirt to a smooth saturation. The 902 can be used with a 9V battery or an adapter, has a true bypass switch and built to last.
Dynamic and shaping tool for the stage and studio guitar player. When Diamond Pedals designed the CPR1 Compressor, they tried to bring to the guitar world the vocal recording approach where the preamp, compressor, and EQ are all in one unit. We think it is mission accomplished! The EQ control shapes the overall frequency balance in a magnificent way really, the post signal is smooth and the ground noise is at bay. In case you are using it with a gain pedal and experience the commonly added white noise you can open the Diamond CPR1 Compressor's casing and switch the high cut filter. No wonder it is one of the most regarded new age compressors in the industry.
