    Said it in the previous thread, if you want those requirements, and you want a Diezel, buy a VH4.

    I have a Herbert. But not the Mark 3, I have a very early one, the third production amp made. I believe it was custom-ordered in a more traditional Marshall look, 'cause it doesn't have the "Star Wars" front panel. I use channel 2 (with "+" activated) and the mid-cut for rhythm tone, channel 3 for leads.

    Here it is (old pic):

    You might not need 4 channels, but the VH4 is the tightest/most brutal Diezel You can get tight/brutal from a Herbert, but the VH4 is better.

    The diezel Einstein was pretty tight from what I remember, have you looked at those? I know James had one and said it was tighter than his Herbert.

    The Einstein was tighter than the Herbert, but I think part of that was the KT88's in it. I never ran my Herbert with all KT88's, but it was definitely tighter when I had a pair of those and a quad of 6L6's than it ever was with all EL34's or all 6L6's. I'd still say if money was no object, a Mesa MkIV/Mark V/JP-2C or a VHT/Freyette Pittbull UL is the way to go. FWIW, the Herbert is also ungodly heavy, I *really* don't miss having to lift that bastard.

    According to Diezel website the Einstein is no longer a part of their range.
    Also, from the website the Herbert seems to have the most brutal description;-)

    Aside, since i have a bunch of different reissue Marshalls with EL34 i dont want to buy another amp that is some kind of tweaked Marshall. I want something completely different tonewise.
