Share One Cabinet for Two Amplifiers!

Diamond Amplification Dual Amp SelectorMonday, June 29, 15 – Houston, Texas – Changing the way MI companies are doing business in today’s new MI market, Diamond Amplification (headed by Jeff Diamant), on the heels of their collaboration with Soldano Custom Amplification (headed by Mike Soldano), has collaborated again, this time with guitar rig guru Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics to launch the Dual Amp Selector.

The Dual Amp Selector was developed to properly solve the problem of how to share a single speaker cabinet with two different amplifiers. “For years, guitar players have wanted a way to switch heads into one cabinet (or even two cabinets run in parallel) to expand what they can do live, or even make things much more convenient at home, but there simply hasn’t been an effective, or quality solution,” stated Diamond’s President and CEO, Jeff Diamant. “The Dual Amp Selector allows a player to safely connect two amps to one cabinet and switch between them with the click of a switch and give them access to the full array of tones from both amps,” Diamant continued. The Dual Amp Selector provides a guitar player the ability to share a single cabinet or two cabinets to access all channels of both amps at any time, have immediate access to a backup head for live applications, allow for one-click amp changing at home without having to re-wire or own multiple cabinets, simultaneously run a direct out for recording or into a mixing board, or even make their home studio much more convenient. The Dual Amp Selector can even be chained together to allow control over three or four amps as well.

Unfortunately, there have not been effective solutions to this age-old problem, but together, we figured out how to do it effectively, initially capitalizing on Bob’s custom rack-mount version.” Diamant continued, “Bob and I really only know how to do things one way, high-end and reliable, and the Dual Amp Selector does not vary in any way from that approach.

The Dual Amp Selector boasts a healthy array of features including: switch two amps (including combos) into a single cabinet, passive and buffered inputs, two parallel speaker outs, footswitchable, separate “direct” out, isolated outputs, high-end components and construction and the ability to use it for tube or solid state amps through an on-board switch. As important, the Dual Amp Selector poses no risk to either amplifier with trailing effects, which other devices warn against. And most importantly, the Dual Amp Selector is made completely in the US in Diamond’s Houston Custom Shop and priced to compete with a $399 street price.

The Dual Amp Selector will be available through US and Canadian retailers as well as international distributors sometime shortly following.
