A 22W head born from the Del Fuego.
The popular Diamond Amps Assassin Vanguard 22W tube guitar amp head is a real fire-breather. The Assassin creates something new, a high gain, Class A, gigable and affordable amp suitable for nearly any situation. Covered in black, the Assassin is a quality, hand-built amplifier producing nothing short of ferocious gain and it is lightweight enough to save your back while still having the power to be gigable even in combination with two 4x12s. Like the Del Fuego, each Assassin is hand wired on a handbuilt fiberglass eyelet board using components selected for reliability and superior sonic character. The Assassin features a full set of tone controls along with a Gain Mode switch allowing for traditional or diode-clipping gain style. The Assassin uses three 12AX7 tubes, two EL84 tubes and a solid state rectifier.
