    Tag, look in the rhythm rig. See the box on the Dumble? Royer Ribbon mic. Then look at the lead rig pic. He is recording both Dumbles at once, and firing one in reverse into an open room. Then recording the back!!! Can't tell, but they are either use a bookoo $$ Ribbon or Condenser.... So, tubeyness =room phase sound and NOT the amp.

    Here is what Robben's tech says about the lead rig:
    [FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]The Basic Lead Rig.....[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]Splitting the guitar into his basic Dumble 2-12 rig, [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]angled in a corner and facing into the open main room...[/FONT]
    [FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]and also into his Dumble Combo amp, loaded with a [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]custom Eminence speaker, faced either into the room or [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]into the open-miked back hall for large, ambient guitar [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman,adobe-times,Times]solos.[/FONT]

    So now I quote myself. Did a quick search:

    "A similar pattern has developed with the diversion of diazepam. The most consistent use of diverted bulk diazepam powder has been in the production of methaqualone counterfeits that resembled "Quaalude 300s", marketed in the United States, including the inscription "Lemmon 714". These methaqualone look-alikes, which contain diazepam as the active ingredient, have been found on the illicit market throughout the United States and Some other parts of the world. The number of methaqualone counterfeit tablets containing diazepam that have been seized or purchased by law enforcement personnel increased 400 per cent from 1977 to 1980."

    I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

    Hey Dad,

    I think that clip is nice, but sounds like every other Dumble clone clip. The Bruno one blows me away with more of everything. You dont agree?

    Wow, there's some really nice sounding clips on this thread. A bit more clean than I usually play, but really nice just the same. I think I'm going to have to spend some time with a Cowtipper in the future. Maybe at NAMM this year... :)

    Well, if nothing else, Tag's unwavering enthusiasm is highly entertaining if not inspiring. We should have a party at Tag's house.

    i'd be lost w/o my royers.
    FWIW, i'd sooner find a good sounding room and mic the sound of the amp in the room than record it in a dry room and add the digital ice age reverb. U can do some cool tricks w/ convolution reverbs, but it still ends up messing w/ the natural beauty of the sound of the amp itself.
    ach, it's all smoke and mirrors anywho.

    i like the super 100 clip too.
    i'd rather that it was a bit less 'processed', tho'. the reverb tail that U can hear at about ten seconds really shows how much juice is on the signal that isn't the amp.

    i wouldn't make any generalisations about the bruno being more aggressive and the bludo being mellower. i think brandon might be following the lead of HAD, himself, and building each amp on a 'geared to the player' basis. there's nothing remotely mellow about my amp and i'm not sure the amp would be playable if it were any more touch sensitive. i love having all that expression available at my fingertips, but it's downright freaky to be able to differentiate the chirp from the different plectra i use (ironwood, american silver quarter, agate, quartz, these freaky dugain shaped picks that board member, crissh, made out of metal) w/ such ease and alacrity.
    it's possible to dial some of the mellowness in by using the 'jazz' switch and boosting the bass a bit, tho'.

    i'd love to be able to play that super 100 some day. danged if it doesn't exceed my $5K limit for an amp, tho'.

    i've been pondering the idea of time sharing amps.
    sure, i've exchanged amps w/ colleagues over the years and continue to do so.
    i'm talking about a half dozen ppl throwing in a few $K each and buying some cool amps and then 'sharing' them. honestly, i've almost bought more amps in the last two years than in the previous four decades. thankfully, the 'least good' of them is still avery good amp.

    I owned one and it was great and different from a BF Fender. The low end was tighter and the highs were softer. It was a bit more touch sensitive and took pedals better.

    I relistened and I couldn't make a choice between the amps given the fact that there are two different songs/players/rooms/miking technique/backing tracks, etc. I will admit that the Bruno has a clarity that is impressive but it is still harmonically rich. I'd take either amp but then I play a DRRI so what do I know:)
