I got to test out the Diablo many years ago and really loved the pedal but didn't get to buy one straight away. For a couple of years, I tried and liked other pedals but there was always something that wasn't right. So then I got smart and ordered the Diablo. Delivery took a couple of weeks but the pedal has been in use since the day it arrived. It has been in a number of rigs I own(ed) and always delivered great tones.

Although based on a TS, it can do a LOT more than a TS. It has a great set of controls that allow you to dial in the pedal exactly like you want it. It works as a booster, low or hi gain pedal, it depends on your needs and what you do with the controls. Besides the standard level, gain and tone controls, the Diablo has a couple of great features:

Body: controls mids and compression going from brighter and open sounding to darker with more compression
Feed: determines the amount of low end pre-gain so it can clear up darker sounding guitars/pickups
Bass: internal control, works closely with the Feed, it sets the amount of bass post-gain
Presence: works like on an amp, add more high end sparkle or make things smoother
Headroom switch: is actually a voltage doubler so the pedal internally runs at 18v, this totally changes the output, response and feel of the pedal. I would say, it's like having 2 different pedals.

All the controls are highly interactive so it needs some time to dial in BUT you will not only find YOUR tone but also plenty of other great sounds from this pedal

It isn't a cheap pedal but it's definitely worth the price, i have considered getting a 2nd one so I can have it both on my board and in my rack and I might do just that pretty soon.
