Herbert Pedal
Announced many months ago by Peter Diezel, the Herbert is coming to us in the summer of 2018! Building on the success of the VH4 pedal, which mimics the iconic head of the same name, it was only natural that the brand offer us a "feet friendly" version of the devastating Herbert.
In Bad Steben we take our time, but as a general rule, the result makes everyone agree. Designed in Germany by Peter and his team, the Herbert Pedal is made in sunny California under the direction of his great pal Dave Friedman. On the program, a pre-amp in an extraordinary pedal format which restores the main sound characteristics of the legendary channel 3 of the famous Diezel Herbert head. If you've never heard this anthology channel, listen to some Alter Bridge albums, it's quite "talking" :)
With the Herbert pedal, we have a part of the history of "big sound" under our feet. Pre-amp requires, the Herbert can therefore be used on a clean channel in a conventional manner, or directly in a power amp or other. You can hardly do more versatile.

Aesthetically, the pedal has a very nice brushed aluminum finish. It is more imposing than the classic formats but remains extremely light. To be the "Hebert", of course, you needed the same controls and buttons as the head. We will therefore find the essential Mid Cut which made the success of the head. Real precision rifle (bazooka?) for fans of big bulldozer sound. Also, a 3-band EQ and the "typical" Diezel Master section: Master, Gain, Presence and Deep. Presence, to adjust the top of the spectrum, and Deep which is a great classic of the brand, this one acting as a contour but with the possibility of controlling the "ommpff" factor on the attack, which greatly contributes to the sound signature Diezel.
A highly sympathetic detail, the pedal takes up the design of the perforated grid with "D", emblematic of the brand. On the front of the pedal (thanks to the jacks on the top, it's nice) there are In and Out and also a specific output to drive a power amp. It's beautiful, right down to the packaging (quality box, transformer and accessories provided)!

We stack the pedal on an ultra clean channel with a PRS that sends wood. Warning... BRUTAL!! The Herbert is the bad boy of the range. We tap in Metal, Prog, Nu-Metal and others, you are where you need to be! Immediately, we find the high medium side, the brand's signature sound. The sound delivered represents for us the quintessence of what a "metal" sound can be. Ultra precise, with plenty of gain that experienced players will know how to tame the best. Its association with the "Mid Cut" section is just... colossal! Whatever your tuning, detuned, 7-string... the Herbert takes it without flinching like a tank. The bottom of the spectrum is impressive, the mids widen with the Cut activated but everything remains perfectly homogeneous. It's a distortion wall in front of you and plugged into an excellent clean channel with headroom in reserve, it will make all metalheads agree! The bulldozer of the genre is a really big slap in the face for edgy music fans.

Top-notch manufacturing, an EQ of diabolical efficiency, a very wide gain range and above all a rendering in total adequacy with the original sound signature of the head, make the Herbert Pedal an absolute must-have. A formidable alternative to the Friedman BE-OD, Strymon Riverside and other Bogner... If you are looking for a pedal for big sound, with a low medium voicing, medium scooped and a very precise high end, this Diezel pre-amp is made for you! GR Award 2018! To try absolutely.
