That sounds really nice!
Now everybody will start buying Louis Electric amps and the Dumble is going to fade away.
...man that amp definitely sounds cool, doesn't it.
how do you know it's not the Super Reverb right next to it?
Could be the Super Reverb.
No matter.Robben sounds great regardless of the amp he plays.
It matters to me...I'd like to know for sure which one he's playing through. I'm one of those curious types!
My $$$'s on the Super.
Very Nice...........................but boy......it ain't no DUMBLE....
We want Smooth, Stankey, Phasey, Tubey, Strainey...........Thang!
I want to hear nothing but brown sounding prunes coming out of that speaker cab.........
Louis Rosano posted this link on his forum so I guess he knows what amp robben played.
Sounded really cool. I like that steely ringing sound.
Interesting -- this is from the sound check on Feb 9 -- that would place the show in Pomona NJ (Richard Stockton College of New Jersey)
When he was in Morristown, NJ on Feb 4-- it was Dumble and Fender all the way.
I would like to know if he actually used the LE during the show or if was just checking amp out during sound check as a favor to someone.
Sounds good -- but his tone definitely lacks the spank and the dimensionality he gets with that tele and his dumble.
From what I understand in the PA show on Feb 6th, he just used silver a face Super Reverb and a blonde Twin Reverb (plus pedals) that were cranked and placed behind a plexiglass buffer.
I like these amps. He sounds much better here than when i saw him playing through a Super.
I wonder if it is because of the Hahn guitar? I remember the videos Chihoe uplaoded after NAMM... his booth had his guitars - obviously - and a Louis Electric amp...
guitar looked like the stock 60's tele he has been using for years.
I saw him last night and he had both the Super and the Louis on stage. I couldn't see how they were connected but I did not see an A/B switch on stage either. There was definitely a cord plugged into the Super. He had the Zen and a wah.
Overall, I thought his tone seem much brighter and strident than any other time I've seen him. The Louis amps I've heard have been pretty bright and tight amps, almost the anti-Dumble I'd be surprised if this were a permanent change.
Was he just checking them out as a favor, or perhaps looking more more tone separation from Jorma's HB/Carr rig? Who knows. It wasn't my favorite Robben tone, although his playing was the usual top notch performance. He used his white tele the entire show for everything.
They all looked a bit road weary from this tour.
In PA on the 6th, he did the show with a Super Reverb and a blonde Twin Reverb.
Maybe his dumble had a wardrobe malfunction
Oh boy -- when it happened to Larry -- Bludotone came to the rescue.
Damn .... glad I have mine!
even the tone from the video feels like an ice pick in my ear .... can't imagine getting stabbed with that ice pick at the vol levels RF typically plays at
The tone in the vid clip doesn't sound like an ice pick to me.Doesn't sound harsh either.Actually sounds pretty darn good to me.
You must not be a Tele player Laz.
Robben is probably leaving the Dumble at home in a safe place and the Louis Electric Keef Richards is the best replacement he could find :BEER
