Comments about Diezel Herbert 180W Tube Guitar Head:
Diezel Herbert Mk2.
The tight low palm-mutes will crush through your chest when paired with a quality 412 cabinet. This amp has the potential to put out low end similar to a bass amp thanks to the over-sized power transformer.
Clean channel is solid. With the right pickups, it sounds great.
Channel 2- is for rock riffs. Great channel.
Channel 2+ is for metal riffs. Great channel.
Channel 3 is for metal riffs and soloing. It's looser feeling than channel 2+. Great channel.
There is a midcut that can be applied to any channel. With the high-gain channels, midcut has the potential to take the amp into crazy scooped death metal territory. With cleans, midcut offers a clearer sound.
The overall voicing of the amp is LOUD, IMMEDIATE, and PUNCHY with CLARITY.
The power amp can run on 6L6s, EL34s, or a combination of both.
In the Herbert, using all 6L6s gives the clearest "bell like" tone for cleans. Also, guitar solos will sound smoother.
Loading up six EL34s in the Herbert gives the most aggressive cut and tight lows for crushing metal riffs.
This amp is LOUD. No natural drum kit can keep up with the headroom in this power section.
Based on my experience, this is the best amp for metal riffing.
