Herbert Head
The Herbert is a 180 watt tube head. It features 3 independent channels, for 3 distinctly different guitar sounds. Overall the Herbert has achieved a very familiar control layout, without losing any of the Diezel signature definition and tightness. Simply put, the amp is a player's amp, ready for whatever your mood desires.

Channel ones clean sound can be likened to a bright piano chime, without a gain section always remaining a rich clear voice. Channel two is a toggle selectable dual purpose channel, offering a huge possibility of sounds which are tight, punchy, percussive and cutting whilst always retaining definition. The (-) mode of this channel has dynamics that range from a vintage type clean sound to a broad crunch. The (+) mode of this channel is similar voiced, but much more gain. Channel three offers a huge high gain sound, that never loses control. The distortion structure is transparent, but yet percussive and brutal.

Herberts have a selectable mid cut feature, sweeping from full mid bite through to a dark scoop. The mid cut feature has a compensation control called "level". This allows the guitar volume to be compensated if the mid cut is engaged in mid song. The Herbert's master section features dual volume controls, and global presence and deep control knobs. Master effects loops are switchable serial loop, mixable parallel loop, and serial loop.

The Herbert does not include a midi pedal or foot switch, as often guitarists using midi will already own one. We find that owners of this amp are delighted with the purchase of a Columbus Midi Switcher, which you will find under 'Accessories'.
