The Nitrox, DA’s most ferocious head to date, features the same quality construction our other products with outrageous amounts of gain. The Nitrox adds more lows than DA’s other high gain amps, but remains insanely tight, which makes it perfect for uber-heavy rhythms and precision playing. The Nitrox also focuses heavily on thick, but smooth, upper-mids to ensure it cuts through the mix with razor sharp precision
Channel 1 remains DA’s heralded clean channel with the same control set: Volume, Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence. Channel 2 has the same controls but also features DA's signature dual volume/gain design. This feature gives the player the option of having two gain settings (say for a rhythm and lead tone, or more gain for chunky heavy gain-style rhythms and less gain for more precision and clarity when playing more staccato style passages) that are accessible to him on the fly.
The Nitrox also features a real, correctly-designed effects loop. You don't need a foot switch; you don't have to push a button. Just plug a cable into the effects send and the loop activates. The loop is tube buffered and will not affect your tone.
The front panel features a master volume, which reads E. Return (effects return). When the loop is on, the E. Return knob acts as the amp's overall master - turn this knob up or down to increase or decrease the amps overall volume. When the loop is off, each channel's volume control acts as that channel's master volume.
Like all current and future Diamond Amplification products, the Nitrox features the highest quality components and construction. Every component was selected and tested for this head. The Nitrox features 6 12AX7 preamp tubes and 4 Sovtek 5881's for its power stage. Each part was personally spec'd and tested by us to ensure maximum performance and reliability, from the transformers to the switches and knobs.
The head features a perforated metal grille made in 16-guage steel and an accompanying identical grille on the back. The knobs are metal for look and feel. LED's are mounted in the box to give this head its distinctive red glow. Even the etched zinc logo is top rate. Corner irons are included on every corner to add to the strength and stability of the box.
All its channels are foot-switchable from the Nitrox's footswitch (connected with a stereo cable).
