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.
A real Tremolo with a 100% analog Optoisolator. The Diamond Pedals TRM1 Tremolo has a 100% analog signal path using an optoisolator that was used in tube amps during the '60s. This pedal is equipped with a microprocessor which offers a lot of useful features such as the tap tempo, a footswitchable double speed mode and different waveforms types (sharkfin, sine wave, square, wave and "chop"). Additionally the TRM1 Tremolo pedal offers different timing accents (3/4, 6/8, 2/4 and 4/4), a rhythmic trem mode and a chaotic mode that gives a random speed with any waveform. To sum it up, the Diamond TRM1 Tremolo pedal is one of its kind, offering a vast selection of features and sound variations for you to express yourself with!To see how this translates to sound be sure to test it on the TonePedia player.
Best of both worlds. The 1st version of the Memory Lane is definitely one of the most famous Diamond Pedals effects out there. That old Memory Lane was the first ever all analog delay pedal to offer tap tempo. It sounded immaculate, but like all analog delays, it did not offer long delay times (the maximum it delivered was 550 ms). That is what Diamond Pedals set to improve with the Memory Lane Jr delay. The MLNJr combines a digital sampling engine, with an all analog signal path before and after it. The result is a delay pedal with similar sound to the original one, but with and extended frequency range and over twice the delay time. The Diamond Pedals MLNJr Memory Lane Jr is by all means a fantastic delay pedal you ought to check out.
True pitch vibrato with an analog bucket brigade design! The Diamond VIB1 Vibrato is a sophisticated , purely analog vibrato pedal effect for those who seek for a special tone. Aside for the standard vibrato controls, The VIB1 sports two toggle switches. Use the JAZZ mode to darken the wet sound for a warm vintage tone. The other toggle switch is called HIGH, it increases the vibrato depth. Use it to get extreme pitch modulation sounds. In order to control the depth and speed of the effect on stage, Diamond included two separate expression pedal inputs. With such high-end components in it's circuit, such as Vishay JFETs, Burr-Brown OP-Amps and Panasonic Polyprops, there is no wonder why the Diamond Pedals VIB1 Vibrato is such a great sounding and versatile pedal.
The beastie boy in the Diamond family! The Diamond Pedals F-Octave Fuzz combines two fuzz variations in one box. We all like fuzz, right? Well what sometimes can top a good fuzz is an octave fuzz. On the F-Octave a toggle switch is responsible for the two modes this pedal offers: a clear analog Octave Up (purple led indication) and a classic silicon-based Fuzz (blue led indication). The Diamond Pedals F-Octave fuzz is a straight forward pedal and does not offer unnecessary controls, you will only need to deal with a fuzz, volume, tone and the mode toggle switch in order to design your sound. The overall sound is organic, juicy and well focused. We like this pedal.
One of the most versatile analog chorus pedals out there...The Diamond Pedals HCH1 Halo Chorus is really one of those chorus pedals which enables the player to express himself/herself without borders, thanks to the combination of delay, pitch, phase and chorus it offers. This purely analog pedal is equipped with a Mono & stereo I/O which is an unspeakable must when it comes to chorus pedals. Diamond wanted to keep the pedal user friendly, therefore went with internal controls for the delay time and LFO wave shape. To sum it up, the Diamond Pedals HCH1 Halo Chorus can go traditional or experimental in ways words cannot describe.
"Fire Fuzz Distortion" in a smaller box! The Diamond Fireburst V2 comes in a compact format that fits better in a pedalboard, bringing the same crunch sound that the former model was famous for. The Diamond Pedals Fireburst V2 FBR2 belongs to the family of Fuzz/Distortion pedals, and it is a pretty versatile one. This V2 version has a toggle switch for the MID-Boost function, instead of the footswitch that was used in the original one. The Two-Band active Baxandall EQ section provides Bass and Treble controls that enables you to shape your tone in many ways.
A Stellar overdrive and clean boost. With two separate overdrive and clean boost channels, the Diamond Pedals JDR3 J-Drive Mk 3 delivers a lot. This pedal is exactly what you'd expect to get from a company like Diamond Pedals. Tt has an innovative and smart circuit featuring an added transformer to the output stage, Schottky barrier diode and more things with funky names you (and us) might not really understand. What is important is the end result - an organic sounding, warm and smooth gain pedal that complements any guitar or amplifier.
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.
