Diamond Pedals Archives - Pedal of the Day

Diamond Pedals


A lot of fuzzes and overdrive pedals have the ability to make some type of clean-ish boost sound, so the option is there if you want it. That option is NOT here in the Fireburst V2 Fuzz/Distortion pedal from our friends to the north at Diamond Pedals. This smaller-sized version of the FBR-1 released a few years back still brings the thunder, but doesn’t take up as much space on your board. The second footswitch has been turned...

Today’s pedal provides us with an excellent combination of effects: octave and fuzz. The f-Octave Fuzz Octave from Diamond Pedals is based off of the vintage and classic Foxx Tone Machine, and provides several tasty and dirty auditory options to choose from. This little blue beauty really brings it, and can easily drive your amp to breakup territory, do octave up and walls of fuzz sounds, and more. The Fuzz tones created here...

How does one company manage to craft not ONE, not even TWO, but THREE of the most-used and highly regarded delay pedals in existence? Starting from scratch and perfecting Version One, that’s how. Although the Memory Lane 2 might be generally regarded as a better machine, and the Memory Lane Jr. might appear on more pedalboards throughout the world, it all started with today’s featured pedal, the Memory Lane Analog Delay...

We’ve been reviewing a bunch of drive pedals from Diamond Pedals recently, and today’s featured pedal is another in this esteemed list of great gear they’ve been putting out. With many of their pedals having a lot of controls and a ton of options, this pedal is simple, easy-to-use and sounds great. The Nine Zero Two (which happens to be the area code for Nova Scotia) is a stripped-down but powerful overdrive, that...

The folks up north at Diamond Pedals have been making top of the line gear for many years now, and I’m always waiting in anticipation for their new releases, year after year. One of their newer model pedals is today’s featured POTD: the Cornerstone, a dual-gain overdrive that features multiple unique discrete gain stages, as well as a couple of fun options in the control room for more versatile and explosive performance in...

Diamond Pedals have been a big supporter of Pedal of the Day since we first started, and it’s always a treat getting a package from them in the mail, ’cause you never know what to expect. This time around, the delivered box was loaded with dirt pedals, the first of which we’ll be checking out today. Both a drive and a warm boost, the J-Drive Mk3 Overdrive puts out plenty of power and adds great depth to your tone,...

Having already reviewed the Memory Lane Jr. and Quantum Leap delay pedals from Diamond, I wasn’t quite sure what else they could do with their delay line, but thought I would check out the Counter Point anyway. Let me tell you, this is a beast of another kind, with new and wonderful differences from the other two, but still invoking that same sonic structure and delight that Diamond gives out with all of their pedals. And...

Up to this point in my illustrious (ha!) career, I had only played delay and modulation pedals from our friends at Diamond Pedals, so when I received the Fireburst Fuzz, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, as I never really knew this company to be known for their fuzzes. Well, that changed the minute I plugged this bright red fire box into my amp and hit go, and I’m going to tell you why. A lot of fuzzes and overdrive...

As far as delay pedals are concerned, I LOVE THEM. My current board boasts 6 Delays, and regardless of what you think, I use them all, and they all produce different sonic results for me, hence the exuberant number of them. The latest addition is the Memory Lane Jr. from Diamond Pedals, and what an addition it has been. A ton of options engulf this pedal, and the sonic properties that it produces are nothing short of astonishing. A...

One of my favorite things about effects pedals are when companies design something new, fresh and innovative, especially when it combines multiple effects into one unit. Sometimes, though, these things are over-the-top, with a manual that takes 3 days to read and a month to figure out how to use properly. The Quantum Leap from Diamond Pedals incorporates a number of effects possibilities, while making them easily accessible and fun to...

Diamond Pedals Tremolo

I have played a tremolo pedal or two in my days as a guitarist, and the optical Tremolo from Diamond Pedals is right up there at the top of the list. With so many variables, the sonic possibilities are vast, but getting to them is the real fun part with this pedal. The Speed knob controls the rate of the modulation, moving from a slow, pulsing wave to a extreme, almost whirly sound close to a ring modulator. There’s also a Tap...
