    After months of listening and research, I'm about to pull the trigger on a "Diamond Tremolo," and a "Diamond J-Drive." I would like to know if anyone has anything positive or negative to say about either or both before I lay down the cash. Any advice or comments are much appreciated...

    I had the memory lane- a fantastic company, fantastic pedal! Just too big for me.

    I have been reasonably sure about the Diamond Tremolo from the beginning. (I have been haunted by the built-in tremolo on the Swart amp that I almost bought last summer...I bought a Mesa Mark V instead...I love the Mesa, but I'm still looking for that tremolo...) Another issue that I have been agonizing over is if I should get the Diamond J-Drive, or get on the list for a Tim!

    Funny how Diamond doesn't come up on this board very often...for a while, people where really jazzed about their compressor on other boards...the trem too. They look like very nice pedals...but I'm too cheap to jump.

    The trem is outstanding - sounding and function-wise. I love the sine wave mode (orange LED). Makes me want to put trem parts in a lot of songs. There are an awful lot of features in it...

    I bought the Diamond Tremolo last year and couldn't be happier.

    I've got the Boost/EQ and the Bass Compressor. Fantastic pedals.

    I use the comp for vocal compression when I record - sweet pedal.

    I have the trem and two Memory Lane Juniors (one for acoustic, etc). Stellar stuff, extremely well made.

    Another Trem user here...very nice pedal. Regarding OD, no experience with the J-Drive, but have increasingly realized the value of my Tim since getting it a couple years ago. I know it has been discussed repeatedly, but the Tim naturally gives you more of your setup. I use mine at the end of my dirt as a standalone (with 2 channels, of course), or to further shape the tone of other dirt before it...which is another huge advantage.
