Amongst a bunch of other REALLY cool amps. Visited a friend in Germany who owns some really stellar gear. We had a small ampfest at his place as he recently bought my Carr and I was delivering it myself so I could play the Dumble. We had a Badger, Egnater Tol100, Carr Slant6V, Dumble Overdrive Special, CAE 3+ preamp and Axe-FX, bunch of cabs, bunch of guitars, lotsa fun. The Axe-Fx really surprised me, great great tones from that unit and the FX are stellar. I feels more or less like a good amp, responds like one and just sounds great. We mostly ran it thru a small Brunetti power amp with great results. In 30 minutes we made a preset modelled after the clean of the Carr and came VERY close. The Badger was totally WOW, I loved the versatility of that amp, going from Voxy cleans to Voxy/Marshally crunch to great fat gain tones. So responsive and packing a lot of punch. I definitely wouldn't mind owning one. We did not play the Egnater at all haha, to much time spend with the other goodies. The CAE is obviously a great preamp, I own one myself. So, the Dumble?? I have played a number of Fuchs amps and also a Two Rock Custom Reverb Signature. They all are in the same vein as the Dumble and all are reasonably close BUT, I know now there is nothing out there exactly like the real thing. We ran it thru a matching 1x12 loaded with an EV speaker. Whatever guitar you plugged into it, the tones were breathtaking, Strat into clean, amazing, P90 LP on either channel was crunch heaven, LP was rocking, ES335 was blues/fusion heaven. I must say that I have never tried to get "that" tone although I really like the older Ford tones, Carlton tones etc. I always figured it was just as much the player as the gear. Well, yes and know. Plugging the tokai ES335 into the overdrive channel of the Dumble, it just delivers THAT tone. The Dumble needs to be played though. It is so responsive, definitely the most responsive amp I have ever played. You can really go from clean to fat sustain with your playing technique. It's unforgiving, everything you don't want to hear, you will hear out in the open. You have to work the guitar but the results make it all worth easily. I was looking forward to playing the Dumble but never would have thought that it would have an almost religious impact on things. I have heard and played it now and I will never forget it. Even if I never ever get to play it again, I know that I've been there, tried it, loved it and will always remember it.
