Run it up to about 1:45. This is what I think of when I think of good Dumble tone...

Never played one. Don't ever plan on owning one. This is not for a debate. Just something that anyone should be able to enjoy :phones

yup--a good true tone. nice thing is is that there are several amp builders that can get you there for a lot less. a divided by 13 ftr37 has a great fender tone, & i've found that a tim or the ethos can get into this range. the celestion 65's can help too. not sure what carlton uses for speakers :munch

Thanks for the vid. It must be way better than what I've heard before.

I heard Larry live at a private Gibson Custom Shop party in 2008, and I can easily say that his tone at this gig cut me in half. The high end was painful and not the least bit pleasant sounding. Just entirely too harsh. May have been the eq, but I wasn't impressed with it at all.

Of course, Larry's playing would impress if he used any amp. He's a true musician just like Al Dimeola.
