    Ethos TLE used mainly as a direct to PA or recording device. Not so much with
    guitar amps any more(not playing much live anymore) but it sounds quite good into my Fender and Fuchs amps at home as well

    Usually just my Dumbles...I've got 5 of them, so I just use an amp switcher to choose which one I want.

    4 out of 5 Dentists recommend Zendrives.

    How do you play it if it's in the mail? ;-)

    The interesting thing about Dumble pedals, I think, is that it's one niche where there appears to be an undisputed leader: the Ethos. For instance, the Zendrive is very popular but its endorsements are always qualified when compared to the Ethos (e.g., "Zendrive is better bang-for-the-buck," "Zendrive is good enough for me," etc.). I don't think I've ever seen a thread where a significant number of people said that some other pedal does Dumble better than Ethos.

    By comparison, the Neo Ventilator has a similar reputation in the Leslie department. People love the Strymon Lex or the DLS RotoSIM, but those endorsements are usually qualified by a comment about the Neo's high price. Nobody seems to think that there's a better Leslie sim than the Neo.

    I always wonder about that 1 dentist. He probably says you can just modify a tube screamer yourself. :rimshot

    I'm about to order one in a few weeks, hopefully. I'm sure I could get it cheaper, but thanks to the wonders of teh interw3b, I heard a few clips and it seems to be exactly what I was looking for.

    Dumkudo

    I have had a Zendrive, but I prefer the Dumkudo.

    I've got an Ethos (run it direct to the board just about every day on the clean channel...so like the SSS). Gets used by far the most, but it is the Clean Channel that really stands out to me.

    Have a Zen Drive (its ok gets used very little)

    Barber Small Fry (use it quite a bit, but is much more versatile than something like the Zen)

    Hermida Zendrive: There is a reason many known pro players use it.

    I've been considering getting a Zendrive or a Dumkudo/Zenkudo, but those seem to be significantly pricier.

    Not sure if I'm opening a can of worms here in terms of ethics, but has anyone tried any Zendrive clones? Did the clone sound close enough, or is there a noticeable difference with the original pedal, in your experience? I guess this is a question about clones in general as well.
