Hello all, new here from TX! 🤘 Have a question for those with experience:

I’ve had a D-Moll for a couple years and love it, but lately have the itch to move to Herbert Mk3. Mainly the added versatility of having a dedicated EQ for the 3rd channel is what attracts me. I play metal and have both V30 and K100 FL cabs.

Currently the D-Moll is my only Diezel, how does the Herb compare for voicing? Is the Herb basically a more brawny version of same sound? Or is the Herb even further over in left field from say a VH4?

The Herbert Mk3 sounds very different to the Herbert Mk1 and Mk2 as well as the D-Moll. It's less "dense" in the mids, more raw and tighter. If you play fast riffs I would go for it.

Thanks for the input. If it’s tighter than the D-Moll I don’t think I’d like it as much as I want to. Feel like I’d be better off looking at a Mk2, but then you lose the MIDI-switchable +/- on Ch 2. Oh well, I’m not unhappy with my current amp, probably just stay right where I’m at. The D-Moll just seems to do everything well.

I've had experience with the Mk.I not the Mk.III - but I've kept the D-Moll... It's a fucking amazing amp. To me?? The simplicity of the D-Moll distills all the awesomeness of the Herb, and puts its own spin on it and makes for a very easy access, versatile amp. It's a brute. I love the D-Moll...

Peace :thumbsup: :rock:
