I'm looking for an amp to use with an Hermida Zendrive to get me the classic dumble overdrive tone. (Similar to john mayer's tone) I play a strat. I was looking at the Rivera clubster 45, but it's ridiculously priced and I just cant afford it. Does any one know of an amp under 1000 that could get the job done? I'm looking for something preferably above 40 watts, but I also need something fairly portable. Thanks

Only a Dumble can get you a Dumble sound. That's why they're called Dumbles and made by Dumble. If they weren't, people wouldn't want them as much as they do.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Sorry I was just reading the whole AM vs. other guy argument on the retarded advice thread and it got me pissed off at stupid people. I guess I was being a bit of an asshole.

Don't be dumble.

What about some of the newer lower priced Riveras? I forgot their name.

Why not? If that's what he want?

The Zendrive will get the drive part covered. I advise a american voiced tube amp, maybe a Fender Twin or Bassman

If you're looking for dumble sound, I hear that using a fender amp (i.e bassman/deluxe reverb) and using a dumble like od pedal can get you close.

I hear that tanabe dumko pedal is pretty much the zendrive with a bit better clarity. Anyway, I'm not sure how much is true, its just what I've heard.

Also, if you're are looking for john mayer tones, this might help: http://www.uberproaudio.com/content/view/146/38/

That's as stupid as saying only a Marshall can get a Marshall sound. There is nothing 'magic' about the Dumble, as much as TGP would like you to believe. Granted, an exact tone would be hard to get with a pedal but there are plenty of amps that nail that sound.

TS, as far as pairing something with the Zendrive, guys like Robben Ford who actually own Dumbles like to pair them with Super Reverbs and 80s Twins. I used to use mine with a DeVille and it was close enough for live use.

A Dumble ODS is a modified Fender Twin so a Fender Twin and a good overdrive will at least get him the ballpark.
