Re: dumble overdrive special amp head

I'm not sure whether you're telling the truth or not.

A DUMBLE FOR FREE? That's sheer insanity. Dumbles are insanely awesome amps that are known for their almost indescribable "heavenly" top-end. Some famous Dumble Overdrive users are Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Johnson, Scott Henderson etc... all guys who are (or were -- sorry SRV) serious tone-mongers.

I believe the tone circuit is related (or at least similar) to that of a Matchless... Could be wrong on the last point.

I do know, however, that the amp you have, even in only reasonable condition, is worth at least a few thousand dollars.

Dave:

What you have been hearing about dumbles is 100% true. Other genuine tone dogs using Dumble's are Robben ford and Larry Carlton. Recently, Carlos Santana swithed to a Dumble. Forget how much the thing is worth. Keep it and make beuatiful music with it.

: : Like Dave said, this amp is used by Robben Ford, a great Blues guitarist. According to one of Ford's instructional videos the amps is supposed to be very much alkie to a fender twin. Have fun with it!

Re: dumble overdrive special amp head

Sorry, I don't believe you are that ignorant. My grandma knows what a Dumble is ! Are you sure you didn't receive a Dumbell instead ?

Re: dumble overdrive special amp head

If you have a real dumble, that amp is probably worth over $15K. Sounds like you have something special. You may want to contact Fuchs Audio Technology. Andy may be able to shed some light on it

Re: dumble overdrive special amp head

Just met a guy this weekend who owns a Dumble - - a single doctor with money to blow - - said Santana offered him 26K for his....

If you are a guitar player of any sort you will absolutely NOT want to let this go... Dumble basically makes amps when he feels like it which is not often and renders these legendary babies extremely rare... I hear he is fortunate enough to reside on an estate of Jackson Browne's so I guess the rent money is not a problem for him...

My suggestion, get it verified and get it insured. And, ENJOY - sigh.

Re: dumble overdrive special amp head

want to sell it?
