Thermion Engineering Heartbreaker Demo & Review

If you’re into British rock & blues sounds, you have to check this out!


Thermion Engineering is a Spanish company that started out in 2012 as a local technical service, repairing and modding amps and pedals. After a long time of working with musicians from different genres, Thermion decided to come up with their own designs, based on the years of experience.

The Heartbreaker is a faithful recreation of a classic British-voiced rock & blues amp and can be used in a variety of scenarios. Thanks to the mode switch (Vintage, Raw, Modern) it offers three different voicings, which can be further adjusted with its 3-band EQ. Pre-Amp and Master will recreate the sound and response of a half- or fully-cranked amplifier. Level works as an overall master control.

The fully hand-built Thermion Heartbreaker can be used in front of any amp, but also works pretty well in the FX return as a great sounding preamp. You can listen to the sound of it in the video:

Diezel Zerrer – Review & Video

Diezel soul in a small format!

Everybody who knows me personally, knows that I am a Diezel worshipper! I picked up my VH-4 head back in 2004 and never actually bought another tube amp. I was used to my old 2-channel Dual Rectifier and I loved it, but the Diezel VH-4 opened up a new dimension of tonal options, apart from having an insane low end response, which comes in handy when you play down to Drop A ;).

What I liked most about Diezel Amplification, is that they always stayed within their course and never lost the original vision they had. But being a small boutique company with only a few employees, Diezel has to follow at least some trends to be on par with other manufacturers. While portable live setups become more and more important for the busy traveling musician, the Diezel Zerrer definitely comes in handy when you need an aggressive distortion section in your rig.
