PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Houston, TX, where he visits
the Diamond Amplification factory. In this video segment, we get to
hear two of Diamond's flagship heads; Phantom and Spitfire II. The
100-watt Phantom comes with 4-Svetlana Winged C EL34 and 6-12AX7 tubes.
In addition, the front panel features two fully independent channels
with Volume, Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble, Presence controls. It also
comes with a 2-button footswitch, tube-driven effects loop and a "low
focus switch on the rear panel. The low focus switch provides 3
positions low, mid, high. Moving from low to high, the player gets to
focus the low end, tailored to his/her needs, with low end increasing
relative to the highs allowing for more low end with more focus.
