    Ess,

    I never turn the gain downnnnnn
    Good suggestion....

    I like the Boutique...Now I have Dumble GAS!

    Vic,
    I think Mesa uses EH tubes. They re-silkscreen as Mesa Engineering but they look like EH.

    I'll look at mine tonite...I have a bunch I took out. I upgraded to SED's and JJ ECC83's in my Dualie. Nice smooth Marshall brown, not too crunchy! I have the Soldano for ultimate crunch....Like a Marshall on steroids.. :D

    Good luck with your Dumble GAS Spunky!

    IF, and I say IF you can find one for sale, expect to spend OVER $15K EASY, many go over $20K...

    You could slum it and get the nice sounding TONY BRUNO amp
    starting for $10K - $12 K on up...
    (Check 'em out on the web site = nice amps too!).

    But who says we can't dream, right?!

    My GAS just turned to AAS,
    slid outa my pants, hit the floor in a pile and was promptly cleaned up and thrown away.

    15 to 20K......Yikes......

    I remember there is another brand out there that Horina93 kept pushing that is supposed to have gotten the Dumble sound down perfect. For now, the AD30VT is fine...It's paid for! Can't remember the name of the amp Co.

    Spunky gets up off the floor where he fell 2 minutes ago and wipes the uncontrollable drool from his chin, looks at the screen again and goes into a catatonic state looking at "The Dumble Overdrive Combo".

    (in a Homer Simpson voice)
    Hmmmmm....Dumble, gotta have it!

    :lol: :lol:

    Ess just gave me a great idea......

    Take a line out from the Vox and run it into my SWR 4004. That's clean. The 4 x 10 cab even has a horn tweety thing. 260 watts anyone?

    Might be a bit bassey...I'll try the ultimate Chorus too for the 12" Fender speakers. 130 watts...He He :D

    From what I understand Ess, Dumble encases his work
    in some sort of material so you can't figure it out too easy...

    Lot's of mystery around these amps... a legend.

    Nice sound files.

    the amps have a really compressed sound to them and I wonder if it just the amp or if something else is affecting the tone.

    some dude on some other forum reckons this... they all seem to be church-types :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    i wouldnt take it 100%, might find some more comments somewhere. dont say about the 80s setting tho :?

    Boutique clean (i think its modeled after a matchless amp) - sounds very much like my old kalamazoo 5 watt kalamazoo tube amp. very simple sound... i rarely use it...

    fender blackface 2x12 (Fender Twin Reverb) - very fender-like. sounds a little thin compared to some of the other models, but it gets thicker as the gain is turned up. this is another that i rarely use, because it doesn't offer much/any distortion. possible to overdrive with the gain maxed out and a high signal (or just an EQ pedal with a 15 dB boost )

    fender tweed 4x10 (Fender Bassman) - fendery sound, but has a little more dirt. begins breaking up when the gain is raised up high. thick, warm sound.

    AC15 - classic small tube-amp sound. warm and full when clean, sweet when overdriven.

    AC30TB - similar to the AC15 with a bigger, more defined and aggressive sound. usually the amp that i use. cleans are bright and when the gain is pushed a little, overdrives very easily. distortion also sounds great when pushed all the way.

    UK '70S (Marshall Plexi) - makes for an awesome 'blues' amp. low gain, the sound is full and thick. med gain, the amp sings. light overdrive without a 'dirty' feel. this one seems a little bass heavy lately... i think its my guitar, as i've been tinkering with it lately... and my overall sound is a bit off.
