    Lately I've been getting really curious about Overdrive Specials and might get a kit. I'm curious though, what does the Ratio control do? Who makes the best kit?

    The two controls in the overdrive section are basically the amount of overdrive and the level of the overdrive.

    It's to balance the overdrive with the clean channel when using the amp as a channel switcher. Not a perfect system, probably why the HRM was designed.

    I am thinking about building a dumble myself. I really would love to build a Steel String Singer, but the schematics to that amp are pretty closely guarded by those in the know.

    Where would you use that monster? There is a forum dedicated to Dumbles. Have you been to that one?
