    I don't really give a damn about looking at the chassis itself since I wouldn't know what I'm looking at and the Fuchs covers that tonal palette for me. I was just amused that the auction was pulled within minutes of the original post in this thread. Hmmm, think there's a connection? :eek:

    Not of a Winterland. I've never seen chassis pics of a Winterland.

    I'm still seeing it. Go to ebay and search for Dumble. My link is probably broke.

    Looks like eBay is doing something weird with the "search results" link.

    There is STILL nothing wired better than a Hiwatt DR103.

    This is the same one that's listed in the Amp Emporium. ModEdit: we don't critique members' pricing practices, even outside the Emporia.

    Looks just like the inside of my late 60's Traynor, and the outside is pretty ugly. I realize that the price is for the tone but I expected more.

    The fact of the matter is, the Winterland does one thing very well.....loud. As for it sharing anything tonally with an ODS or a SSS, pure fiction. Dumble's early adventures into amplifiers were hit or miss at best. I owned something called a Dumble Small Special for a while, early Santa Cruz, crude cosmetics like the Winterland pictured, 2 EL34's...and.....nothing "special" about it whatsoever. B

    That's a pretty interesting amp. I haven't gotten real in depth, but it looks like the phase inverter is a cathodyne inverter into a pair of drivers. Like a capacitor coupled SVT (no cathode follower). It also looks like there might be an ultralinear tap being used. I wonder if the output tube sockets and some of the resistors in that area are original.

    I've read that the steel string singer is a blackface preamp on an SVT type power amp. This amp is probably along the same lines. I'm sure it sounds pretty nice, even though whoever pays $30k for it, probably will be buying as an investment more than an amp to play.

    Fender on Super Steroids which I've seen a few Boogies like that in the past.

    No secrets no magic fairy dust. Have you ever seen the Fender Studio Bass 1x15 Combo. All tube mother of Bass Power with 6 6L6's that for Mesa has transformed into a power relieving 12 6L6's today.

    The biggest flaw with the Fender was the cab then Boggie perfected it and made an unbelievable cab to go with it. Instant massive Thunder. Plug a guitar into it and go figure. To me thats not where the gypsy lives though.:BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE :BOUNCE

    Easy, insertion fees. Start the bidding at $10,000 and you pay a big fee up front, leave it at a dollar, no fee. Though since there's a reserve on it, the seller got charged a big fee (percentage of reserve) anyway.

    That's probably why D- doesn't want anyone to see it.

    I didn't see any goop. Did I miss it or was this one pre-goop?

    Good eyes Jackie! I think that the final driver is actually long-tail PI as the cathode is shared. Wonder why he didn't go whole-hog and use the dual CFs like the SVT does? Perhaps it was loud enough already... :)

    Hey, Chris. You're probably right. I'm going have to take a closer look at those pictures. I'm not sure why he wouldn't go the full cathode follower route. From what I can determine on that power transformer it's 410 volts at 400ma 6.3 at 8 amps. So there's probably just enough heater current for another tube. But do you think 400 ma is enough for a quad of 6550's potentially running into ab2 if they were coupled through a cathode follower?
