Upgrades sound different, not always better.

I've been gassing for an Einstein lately and had a quick question. When you change modes on the first channel does the amp change volume levels a lot?
I'm wondering if I'd be able to gig it easily without a lot of tweaking between songs. Some I need a good clean and others I don't.
So far, nothing has beaten the VH4 for my needs! With you saying the Einstein does the third channel- I may have to unload some gear!

the Einstein arrived about 20 mins ago...
of course i tore everything up and plugged it in immediatelly..
i can't begin to tell you how wonderful this amp is...
god..i missed that screaming top end and that smooth and full of sustain tone...
a full reveiw with the clips and everything will follow once i get to play this a bit more...
but by first impressions its even better than i remembered it from the Messe...
-channel 1..mode 1.. clean
just excellent..best i've heared from a Diezel...sparkly,bright and punchy...
-channel 1..mode 2...crunch
i'm not a really big fan of crunch channels..usually they tend to be very weak sounding to me...
i usually get my crunch tones by lowering a heavy drive channel...
but this one is sure a big surprize...it comes directly to the tone i would like by lowering the gain usually..and its punchy as hell..excellent...
-channel 1..mode 3..Drive
well this is actually the trademark Diezel tone that makes him so special..
the truth is that i remembered this a bit more soft..but as Olaf told me Pete tweaked this a bit now..and this comes to the trademark tone of the VH4's 3rd channel...and this is my dream rhythm tone...and the reason i had 2 VH4s in the past...
huge bottom,bite, and in one word...BALLS!
well this is a huge improvement for Mr Diezel..i always loved all his tones on the VH4 and especially the rhythm ones...also the solo tone of the 4th channel on the VH4...but there was something missing there IMO...and this is way close to my liking..
the tone is slightly more compressed here..that sounds amazingly well for solos..but a little more open than the VH4s 4th channel...also more fat sounding...and thats a big difference...sustain for days..
of course it would do modern rhythms perfectly as well...
so in overall i'm more pleased than i would expect to be...
this amp would cover almost everything for me...
metal tones to classic rock stuff easily...
DO NOT make the mistake and think that because this amp is cheaper it will be a compromize toy...this is the real deal..
and the only thing i see is improvements to the tones on all previous Diezels...
the cost comes down only because of the less features like midi,seperate eqs,inserts etc...
but for me this is the best Diezel yet...
one last thing i forgot to mention is the loop...
it works and sounds amazingly well..
so take care everybody..
i will return with clips and vids soon...
gotta go play now...

I don't play high gain type music, but I absolutely loved the Einstein when I played it.
Congrats on the amp, dude.
