    I'm coming to the conclusion that this is just the most versatile amp ever

    I've used it for all sorts..
    rock / prog / metal... arm.. yeah obviously.. lol..
    funk
    swamp blues

    and now my latest session..
    rockabilly

    it's versatility never ceases to blow me away

    cab is a factory 77: 1x10 Prince Tone Black Mix

    Herbert ch2-
    set the master vol high: 8
    set the input drive low: values between 3 and 5 to control how much grit you want in there

    guitar was a Strat [HSS so I have H&S together and S coil only options]

    Love the Herbert... easy to dial in too..
    The Quick Rod is another amp I’d put in the same catagory as one that can cover a lot of ground that doesn’t seem to get a lot of mentions. The Herbert has that magic & has feel. Killer
