Diezel Amps (pronounced dietzel) are one of the most recognisable sounding amps on the market. The mighty 180-watt Herbert head has a monster tone and enough tight low end to leave you wishing you’d brought a spare pair of trousers.
The Herbert pedal has that same searing gain, punishingly tight low end and finely tuned midrange - and it’ll fit on your pedal board!
This high-gain stompbox replicates its namesake amp’s preamp with precision. You’ll find the same wide-ranging EQ control and foot-switchable midcut circuit, along with Presence and Deep controls for mimicking the amplifier’s power-section punch.
To make this stomp box-sized preamp even more flexible, Diezel have included a separate output for running directly into a power amplifier, using the Herbert pedal as your rig’s front end. And you can control it all remotely, thanks to its 1/4" stereo jack.
Far from being just another distortion pedal, the Diezel Herbert pedal offers multiple ways to achieve its ground-shaking tones. If you prefer using pedals for your dirt, you’ll find the pedal works beautifully straight into the front of your clean amp. But you’ll also find a dedicated “To Power Amp In” output jack that turns the pedal into a fully functional preamp. Plug it into the series effects loop return of any guitar amp or directly into a stand-alone power amp, and you’ve turned your amp into your very own Diezel Herbert - perfect for players who often must rely on less-than-dependable rental backlines.
