Have you considered Axe-fx?
My friends bring their amps over sometimes, and when we do blindfold tests, they cannot tell my Axe patch from their amps. I can get all sounds I want from Fender to Marshall to Mesa, all in 1 box. Plus effects.
Just a thought.

the cleans are as loud as i will ever need, channel 2 is vintage gain channel 3 is monster channel,

so all in all a good choice for what i needed...

not a mystical as the ceriatone, but does what it says it will in spades,

stupidly large and powerful for my studio, but there u go..

Whenever you record something, please let us know. Why the Ceriatone is mystical?

ceriatone is less modern sounding, more organic, but the herbert is new and I have not explored all the tonal variety as yet

yes funny that, first thing that sprang to mind... although its about as far from organic as you can get heh..

how about..

crisp and wintery cleans, but able to dial in the warmth of early autumn..hehe

i have time for a herbert report, nearly a month now, so I know the amp better..

channel 1 great cleans, all the way from clean clean, to overdriven clean if that makes sense, at any volume level..but I still prefer the ceriatones cleans, but I think thats mainly due to the gh12s in the ceriatone cab and vintage 30's in the diezel..

channel 2.. brilliant vintage and modern gain tones love it.. exactly what i was looking for..

channel 3 .. dont like the voicing of this one so much, its great for metal chunking, but I dont use it hardly at all..

mid cut feature.. I dont use it...

midi.. I dont use it..

so in conclusion, as John A said early in the thread..''what stadiums are you playing'' he was spot on, the herbert can do great sounds at relatively low volumes, which is great, but it is stupidly loud and powerful for me,

I will be selling herbert in the new year I think, and then maybe an einstein.. or a cornford mk50 mk2

the diezel herbert is a fantastic amp, but its not totally right for me, it has things I love and things I never use, but there is nothing actually bad to say about this amp..

heres a clip of the ceriatone and the herbert.. see if you can tell which is which ie which is the rhythm guitar on and which one is the lead..

excuse the playing it was a rough night..heh..

Amazing tune, sounds like the Cure meets Metallica:D Pesonally not keen on the sounds of the lead guitar, but the controlled feedback in the into is great!!
