Not a Dumble expert but tough question to answer,it depends on your needs. DO a search at the ampgarage.com under the Dumble forum. They have great info on all the variations plus schematics and what not. That way you'll know what you like best about a Dumble and heck will answer the question wether you want a D style amp or not....

Blue clouds is the 80's dumble. It is actually featured in the video to that track.

Here is the link to the video

i thought that was done with some little old tube combo, not a dumble? i vaguely remember an interview where DL talks about cranking some obscure little amp until it was on the verge of dying, with its tubes glowing blue.

I thought I read a thread where they mention DL playing through a Dumble on that tune... I could be wrong Would'nt be the first time. I also thought I saw a video on You tube of that song & DL was playing a Dumble on that. Althouh it's very possible for the studio he did plug into a small amp. Anyway you cut it it's good tone.:AOK

"Like a Rock" - Bob Seeger, the song in the Chevy Truck commercial, wonderful sounding solo - it's a Dumble.

We've all heard a Dumble amp a million times, we just didn't know it at the time. Now ya know (GRIN).

Dana O.
so that gorgeous rick vito solo on "like a rock" was a dumble as well, huh?
