DV Mark Multiamp – beauty shot 1

One of the hottest new products at this year’s Musikmesse was the Multiamp from Italian makers DV Mark.

The DV Mark Multiamp head niftily combines pro-quality amp and cab models with top-drawer effects and a very powerful – yet unbelievably lightweight – 500 Watt Class-D power amplifier.

The DV Mark Multiamp (current price in Finland: 1.380 €) is build to withstand serious use, yet is still manages to look elegant. The whole chassis is made from sturdy folded metal, with the front panel finished in a fetching cream white.

You can put the Multiamp on your speaker cabinet (or on your table), or install it in a 19-inch rack. DV Mark have supplied the necessary mounting brackets and screws with the amp.

In Europe Jeff Diamant’s company Diamond Amplification is still a new name in the amp business.

Each Diamond amp and cabinet is hand-made from start to finish at Diamond’s factory in Houston, Texas.

Diamond amps are thoroughbred, hand-soldered valve amps, but this doesn’t mean that Jeff Diamant and his team are stuck in the past. The company’s products are modern amplifiers designed for maximum reliability.

Kitarablogi.com tested a Diamond Del Fuego -head (current price in Finland: 1.750 €) and a matching Open Back 1×12 -cabinet (current price in Finland: 650 €).

The Del Fuego is a 22-Watts class A amplifier with a vintage two-channel layout. “Vintage” means there are two channels – one with tremolo (Ch 2) and one without (Ch 1) – but you cannot switch between channels on-the fly, unless you use a separate A/B-box…

Blackstar is one of the hottest guitar amp companies around at the moment. Their first Series One -heads have found their way into many a professional’s back line, due to their muscular tone and extreme versatility. Their more recent sweet little HT-5 and HT-1 combos can already be found in many studios and living-rooms around the globe.

Kitarablogi.com got the 50 Watts HT Club 50 head (current price in Finland: 591 €), as well as the Celestion-equipped HTV-412A cabinet (current price in Finland: 435 €) for reviewing.

The whole Blackstar range is engineered in the UK, but built in South Korea. The Venue-half-stack looks very stylish, with somewhat more of a vintage-type charm compared to Series One models.

Workmanship is top-notch…
