Diago Announce Pedal Sized Amp
Diago announce the pedal sized guitar amp head 'Little Smasher' with 5 watts ideal for small gigs, studio and home use.
In the past few years we've seen a glut of low-wattage amp heads come to market since Orange introduced their Tiny Terror and ZVex with their Nano Head.
The likes of Blackstar, Vox, Hayden and Mesa Boogie have all followed suit and come up their own products for this growing trend.
Diago have taken this concept a stage further with the Little Smasher combining the responsive tone and immediate simplicity of the most sought after amps; with the compact size, reliability and volume control needed by today's discerning guitar player.
A fully fledged amp head, its four analogue modelled cascading gain stages adjusted by Gain and Volume controls give a range of tones from chimey clean to plexi-esque rock crunch, and it's designed to work especially well with pedals up front if you need to push it further or want multiple channels.
It also has active Bass and Treble controls with a massive 15dB boost and 30dB cut available on each.
5-Watts doesn't sound like a lot, but it's surprisingly loud and can drive a wide range of cabinets; anything up to a 4x12 which it does with ease - and sounds great with plenty of grunt.
In addition it's rich, harmonically complex tone and road worthy reliability comes by combining the very best design, components and construction methods.
Tired of lugging heavy heads, and combos around, now all you need to take with you is a guitar, pedal board and cab.Posted on 21 Jan 2011 15:36 to category : Instruments News
