Here's the ultra high gain bad boy Diamond Amplification rolled out at NAMM '08: The Nitrox. This 100 watt, 2.5 channel screamer goes ultra heavy with the best of 'em but has a well-rounded clean channel, too. This is the first amp Diamond has unleashed at what you could call a more affordable price point but is built with the same Diamond quality for the money. Nitrox Features • 100 watts (4 x Svetlana EL34 – 6 x 12AX7) • 2 fully independent channels (Channel 1 - Clean/Channel 2 - Crunch) • Both Channels feature Volume, Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble, Presence • Dual Volume/Gain Channel 2 (switchable, allows for two gain settings with 2 volumes for level adjustment to match volumes) • 2 button footswitch included for access to Ch 1/2 or Ch2 A/B • May be wired for 100v, 120v, 220v and 230/240v output selection. • Ohm selector switch for 4, 8 or 16ohm output. • Red LED's light the box for a distinctive look on stage, along with a unique hexagon pattern front grille and etched zinc logo. • All components specifically spec'd and tested by Diamond before inclusion in the product. • Independent LED's indicate which volume/gain is active. • Properly designed, tube-driven effects loop (shorting jack so the loop will automatically engage when cables are plugged in and disengage when cables are removed). • Front panel Effects Return control that acts as an overall master when loop is engaged for quick overall volume adjustment.
