My friend wants to buy a Dumble amp but he only has $10k to spend, do you know anything about them?

All the pics I can find they look like they are covered in loads of glue and stuff, does this mean they break down alot?

He plays classic rock and alot of Robben Ford.

Thanks!

A Dumble?!!! Why waste your money on that crap when you could buy 1,000 Spider 15's!? The more amps you have, the better it sounds, DUH!!!

Why on earth would you spend 10K on an amp that possibly breaks down alot?

A Blues Junior with a tubescreamer clone nails the Dumble tone, and saves you some money.

Does that setup get that smooth tone though?

My favourite song is politician. I dont want to spend 10k if it doesnt get that Robben tone.

Well he just wants to nail that smoothness.

It has to be a Dumble, but is the glue stuff going to cause a problem? Are they unreliable?

I think you should buy a Fuchs. The ODS gets great ford tone.

That's such a well know way of nailing the dumble tone... How could I not post it?

Hi Carl,
The "glue" that you see is actually special electron-resistant epoxy. It helps to keep the circuit from bleeding electrons, since they are fragile and cannot survive for long outside of the vacuum of the tubes. The epoxy acts like a wall to keep the electrons in so they can't escape and ruin your excellent harmonics. Pretty neat, huh?

Tell your friend that the only Dumble is a real Dumble! It might cost a little extra, but your friend should think of it as an investment and a tool - just like his BMW 5-series or his big, expensive house that will definitely be worth more when this little real estate dip fad goes away! I'm sorry to bring this up, Carl, but perhaps your friend can learn from your mistakes. How many times have the patrons at your local blues gig left the bar in disgust because your Two-Rock didn't have the "kiss of the pick" that a real Dumble has? Don't you feel like you're missing some "haunting mids"? Aren't you frustrated that even after you installed that vintage-correct sustain block on your D'Pergo stat and traded that siver klon in for a gold one you still couldn't hear the difference between your medium rounded and your large rounded V-pick?

Well, the only way to fix that frustration is a real Dumble! Once you've played one, you'll realize that without a real one, you might as well be playing that Guitar Heroes game your kids like! And don't even get me started on the crap they listen to these days - more like the Black Eyed Please, L.O.L.!

So, Carl, tell your friend that the internet is in agreement at least on one thing - Dumbles. If you really want the best, and want to know that you have the best, and want everyone else to know that you have the best, your only option is that second mortgage. Your wife might not like it, but just tell her that you can pass it on to the kids one day. It's not like she ever listens to you play anyway, L.O.L.!

Best of luck,
TEG

Ban! I don't like to ban people unless they insult D'Pergos. I would tell you why, but I would have to ban you. Let's keep this discussion positive, please!

What is your favorite D*mble style pedal to put in front of your D*mble style amp? I really like the Jetter Gain Stage Aquamarine! It is a special version that they only made for people who use vintage correct telecaster saddles.

What is going on in this thread?

We are discussing nice amps, and nice guitars! Later we might talk about expensive cars and very good cigars! Does anyone know a good divorce lawyer? My wife is going to need one when she finds out we're talking about D*mbles again, L.O.L.! Feel free to start some conversation on your nice gear if you think you know tone!

"D'Pergo guitars are made from tonally superior, certified old growth tone woods that possess remarkable acoustic resonance, enhanced stability, and increased velocity of sound. These old growth woods are commercially unavailable on the global timber market."


ZOMG they use black market wood!

So what your saying is, I can get the Dumble if I buy a Dumble?

But I need a pedal to boost it into classic rock?

he plays a Squier CV, it looks just like EJs strat from the politician videos, you know, that song ford made more popular when he covered it.

No, you need a pedal to play Politician at a volume that won't wake up the kids! Your friend should look into D'Pergos. They are like EJ strats but they sound more like a strat, and the resale is much better. They also have more velocity of sound, which is important if you're like me and can't wait for that sweet warm tone to hit the speaker!

Speaking of speakers, does anyone know a speaker like the EVM12L but more boutique?

VERY GOOD VERY GOOD,

#38
Is this all an inside joke between you guys? something from another thread maybe? If so, link!
#39
Ah ok, so he needs a stratier strat..

also, would he find that the amp will allow him to just play like Ford?

I mean watching videos, it seems that tag guy bought the amp and it all just flowed from his fingers
