Simplifier DLX

The amp can be used as a stereo 2-channel amplifier, two parallel amplifiers for full stereo signal chain, or with two guitars at the same time, each with its own amp and FX loop.

After its previously successful introduction of the Simplifier analog preamp/cab sim, Chilean-based DSM Humboldt is announcing the Simplifier Deluxe, a brand new zero watt amplifier/pedal with remarkable features and a variety of new sounds.


With this tone-sculpting device, guitar players can now easily dial in unique sounds by choosing cabinet options, different tube configurations, amps and gain stages, reverb modes, and more. The Simplifier Deluxe will go from sparkling cleans, to chimey warm blues, and fire-breather high gain chunks. All of this comes in a small package measuring just 5.1 x 3.9 x 2.5 inches.

Similar to its little brother, the Simplifier, there are endless connectivity options and multiple configurations for rehearsing via headphones out, recording, or live scenarios.

For this product release, DSM Humboldt is offering a limited-time bundle that includes a compact footswitch for choosing channels and reverb.

DSM&Humboldt: SIMPLIFIER DLX

Simplifier Deluxe features include:

Ultra Connectivity Platform

  • Use it as a stereo 2-channel amplifier, or two parallel amplifiers for full stereo signal chain, or with two guitars at the same time, each with its own amp and FX loop.
  • Mono or Stereo mode Input.
  • Stereo FX send with preamp bypass option for each channel.
  • Stereo Thru jack for recording an unaffected signal, WDW, or monitoring purposes.
  • Right and Left FX return jacks. If the Left return is empty, it can be set to be a slave of the right channel for mono use or take the signal from channel B for full stereo.
  • DI outputs.
  • ¼-inch outputs with option to bypass the power+cab emulation.

Two Fully Independent Preamps

  • Two studio grade preamps capable of modeling iconic amplifier tones. Each channel boasts:
    • 3 preamp types (MS Brit, American, AC Brit)
    • 3 Gain modes (Clean, Crunch and Lead)
  • Channel A models a cranked amplifier with phase splitter saturation, producing dynamic range of distortion harmonics, ultra-responsive picking, pinching harmonics that fly from fingers. Ideal for aggressive and expressive playing.
  • Channel B models the same amps, but with a warmer, rounder response, perfect for sweet cleans, blues crunch up to heavy rhythm guitar.

New Stereo Reverb with Three Modes

  • Including a full stereo reverb with mix control for each channel independently.
  • Three reverb modes

Housed in a custom-designed aluminum chassis, Simplifier Deluxe can also serve as a high-grade headphone amp with Aux Input. Left and right power amp and cabinet settings are the same as the original Simplifier.

According to Jano Acevedo, DSM Humboldt CEO, "In a world filled with digital tools for guitar players, we aim to be a bridge for people who want a different experience. We think that analogue stands alone, and the new Simplifier Deluxe is a perfect example.

The worldwide release date for Simplifier Deluxe will be May 2021, with a MAP price of $449.90 USD.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
