El pedal definitivo para sonar como en los 80
jaimomo, 21.03.2020
Es increíble lo bien conseguido que está ese sonido de las guitarras del hard rock y el heavy ochentero. Las posibilidades de la ecualización son brutales, con las frecuencias y Q elegidas magistralmente. Con el microinterruptor "clip" bajado, tenemos un sonido de overdrive lleno y profundo, con una dinámica increíble, mientras que con él activado, llegamos a unas distorsiones llenas de armónicos y con un sonido espectacular. El boost funciona perfecto tanto en limpio como con la saturación activada.
En definitiva, si te gusta el sonido de las guitarras saturadas de los 80, no he encontrado un pedal mejor, con más dinámica, incluso con mucha distorsión, y con una ecualización tan efectiva, una maravilla :)
La única pega que se le podría poner es que, cuando aumentamos mucho la ganancia con el clip activado, el pedal genera una cantidad de ruido apreciable, igual que hacen la mayoría de amplis por otro lado.
Una compra muy recomendable.

Perfecto para Metal Prog
Rigancio, 31.03.2021
Lo compré pensando en usarlo junto con un Metalzone de BOSS para sacar un sonido metal pero no ha hecho falta. He quitado el Metalzone de la pedalboard ya que el SD Diamondhead se vale por si solo para producir tonos pesados y distorsion hi-gain perfecta para Metal progresivo.
Lo he combinado con un Reecho de mooer para realzar las partes melódicas y un noisegate.

Ha sido una compra excelente.

erstklassiger Old-School-Sound
U.W.E, 08.04.2020
In meinem Floorboard macht sich der Effekt großartig (True Bypass) live aber für mich vor allem im Homerecording. Die Regelungen sind enorm wirkungsvoll, so dass hier sehr sorgfälltig eine Feinabstimmung zur Vorstufe und evtl. anderen effekten erfolgen kann. Die Zerr-Reserve hat einiges zu bieten und liefert bereits auf 9 Uhr eine tollen Endstufen-Verzerrung. Trotz der vielfältigen Möglichkeiten ist die Bedienung übersichtlich. Der Boost peppt das Teil auf, so dass es gerade bei kleinen, übersicht Boards sehr vielfälltig eingesetzt werden kann. Von mir: volle Empfehlung.
