There was a guy on TGP that was selling 2 Dumble made cables for the Dumbleator FX loop for $3000

And like Greg said, it is the exclusivity of owning a Dumble.

Ceriatone makes a Dumble-esque amp. I don't know if it's a cloned circuit but the tone is pretty close.

But again it's not about the tone or quality, it's about exclusivity. It's like there's no reason for a Bugatti Veyron to be $1.5 million except for the fact that it's a Bugatti Veyron.

Yeah evidently Nik copied an ODS, SSS and one of the others as well as the Dumbleator FX loop

it really has nothing to do with the amp, it's about being in the dumble club.

nothing says "i have more money than brains" like a dumble in your back line.

It's not the price or exclusivity of a Dumble. It's the haunting Mids. Ask Dave.

At least the Bugatti Veyron is (Or possible was, I don't keep up with these things anymore) the fastest production car on Earth. It was objecively the best at something.

Well Dumbles are the best at getting people to spend stupid money on an amp

Actually Gibson and PRS are awesome guitars

You guys should checkout Gil Yaron guitars, Gibson clones that start at $10,000 and the guy is a relatively new builder from what I understand

It wouldn't destroy it, it would simply destroy the nonsensical, near-fraudulent mythical bullshit mystique built up around it.

I have no problem with high end equipment, but blatant ripoff corksniffery and arrogance greatly offends me.

Although to be honest, people who buy into it probably deserve what they get...

Well next time you have a spare $50,000+ laying around buy one and take it apart for us
It seems like John Mayer, Keith Urban, Santana can buy into what ever they want

Krank Rev+ series. For the price you can get them used, you can't beat it. An honorable mention for the Blackstar Club 40.
