Diezel Herbert Amp Features /
Sounds / Advantages
The Diezel Herbert is Peter
Diezel's vision and realization of the ultimate channel-switching
high-gain amplifier head. Featuring three completely independent
channels, six output tubes for bone-crushing power (180 watts) and huge
yet tight and focused lows, a footswitchable Mid-Cut section that can be
assigned to any and all of the three preamp channels, three effects
loops (one footswitchable), a switchable second master volume,
compensated line out, bias control and fuse for each duet set of power
tubes, and most importantly, incredible TONE!
The Herbert comes stock with six Ruby EL-34STR output tubes, but with a
simple bias adjustment, you could install a duet of power tubes with any
other duet sets or quad sets in any configuration imaginable. For
instance, you could have a duet of EL-34's and a quad of 6L6's. You
could have a quad of EL-34's and a duet of 6550's. You could have a duet
of EL-34's, a duet of 6L6's and a duet of KT-88's, etc. The
possibilities are mind-boggling. You could experiment until you find the
perfect tube complement for your unique playing style and musical
tastes. The Herbert makes this possible.
Channel one is sparkling clean with bubbly bounce yet a very big tight
bottom and a glassy yet pleasing top end. There is literally infinite
clean headroom here. The second channel features a very wide gain range
from warm Blackface-type of clean to bluesy overdrive to classic rock
crunch to a hot-rodded Marshall type of sound that's punchy and warm.
Although the Herbert's massive power section gives it a different feel
and response from the classic amps of yesteryears, the tones are sweet
and harmonically rich. The third channel is the fire-breathing monster
that we've come to expect out of this long-awaited masterpiece. From
80's metal to saturated fat shred lead sounds to the most intense
over-the-top detuned Nu-Metal and ultra fast doomsday death metal
sounds, the Herbert dishes out some of the gnarliest, some of the most
menacing, some of the biggest and some of the punchiest distortion sound
EVER from a guitar amplifier.
Go from Nile Rodgers to Joe Pass on Channel 1 to BB King to SRV to the
Stones to AC/DC to early-VH on Channel 2 to Holdsworth to Buckethead to
Slayer to Slipknot on Channel 3. You can do it all from one amp with the
stomp of a footswitch or a MIDI pedalboard. And this is ALL-TUBE from
start to finish. No digital modeling, no software, and no transistors
affecting your precious guitar signal at all! If you really want it all
from one amp without any tonal compromises, the Diezel Herbert may be
the last amp you'll ever need to get. This amp is destined to be a
classic and is well on its way of setting a new benchmark standard in
multi-channel high-gain amplification.
