Anaheim, CA (February 11, 2008) -- Jeff Diamant walks us through the features of Diamond Amplification''s new Nitrox amp, a 100 watt, 2.5 channel heavy hitter for ultra high gain players. Built with the same quality specs as any other Diamond amp, the Nitrox comes in at a more affordable price ($1999) but delivers as you would expect any Diamond amp to.

The Nitrox brings more low end to the table but stays tight enough for articulate rhythm playing. The amp''s upper mids are smooth but bright enough to cut through the stage clutter. The second channel features Diamond''s signature dual volume/gain design, giving you the option of having two gain settings you can punch on the fly.

The preamp uses six 12AX7''s and the power stage is driven by four Svetlana EL34''s. Check out the video to hear both channels.

An overachieving overdrive that gets way bigger than its name suggests.

Sweet balanced crunch tones. Dynamic. Sparkling, full, and clean at attenuated guitar volume. High-quality build.

Pretty expensive.

Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
