DSM & HUMBOLDT ELECTRONICS

Zero Watt Amplifiers from Chile

More guitarists are gigging amp-less than ever before. The pedalboard-sized DSM & Humboldt Simplifier seeks to re-create every stage in a traditional amplifier setup — tube breakup, tone stack, and cabinet simulation — by using an all-analog, totally silent signal path. This gives players the freedom to the leave the amp and cab at home for fly dates, remote gigs, and Sunday morning pack-ins. The "zero-watt" (as in, it won't drive a cab on its own) Simplifier is a key ingredient in achieving a silent stage and creating the ultimate self-contained pedalboard guitar setup. Its fully analog preamp, power amp sim, and cabinet emulation dispense a gratifyingly immediate response.
