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.

Comments about Diamond Amplification Assassin Vanguard Series 22W Tube Guitar Amp Head:
Fantastic boutique tone, hand wired, class A, all tube, sporting a pair of EL84's in the power amp. Nothing comes remotely close to it's tone in it's price range and/or small amp segment. Can be really loud if you need, and even drive a 412 cab. Does blues rock to metal well. No overdrive or distortion pedals needed with this amp, just work your volume nobs if needed, it's responsive. A BIG tube amp sound in a small and affordable package.
