Summer NAMM '10 - Diamond Amps Positron Demo

July 12, 2010
PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location in Nashville, TN, for the 2010 Summer NAMM Show where she swings by the Diamond Amplification booth. In this segment, we get to check out their newest head--the Positron.

This little Class A rocker is loaded with 2-EL84s and clocks in at 22 watts. It isn't as big or gnarly as its big brother Diamonds, but this is a no-joke tone machine with only two controls--Tone and Volume. It has crystal cleans, but it begs to be dimed so it can create some Mike Campbell-esque rock 'n' roll.
