    I don't like. That type of Dumble OD is one of my least favorite amp tones. It sounds like the guitar or amp has a stuffed up nose.

    Sounds cool. Out of curiosity, how loud was the amp?

    @davidleerotharmy I can't find a website for Mark Kane. How'd you go about getting your build done?

    Interesting! Do you know if Kane duplicates the exact actual (metered, rather than just read off the component) value of the caps he uses? I'm curious to know how close he tries to get to the actual camp he cloned. Glad you like yours!

    honestly I don't know ... I can only say that this amplifier has the dumble sound that I dreamed for many, many years. I'm happy...

    That's amazing that it sounds so fine at such low volumes. I'd bet it's glorious with the master volume up to stage volumes. Enjoy!

    Very articulate overdrive, I like that it really sounds like an extension of a clean channel.

    Sounds great.
    I was thinking of Richie Blackmore’s intro the the Deep Purple song, “Lazy” when I listened.
