Who was Todd Epstein? Passed in '95. I had never heard of him. Was he only known in Cali?

Darn. If it was a 60 watt combo, I would have bid. ;-)

I can't even imagine how that is worth more than $25k. I don't think they sound that great. Just a bunch of hype.

That's one expensive micro wave oven.

I know Carlos Santana uses one but seriously, I liked his tone better when he was using a Les Paul with Bill Lawrence "super humbucking" pickups, and into a Mesa Boogie Mk 1.
That was THE sweetest tone live tone I've ever heard him use, and this was in 1973.

I wonder if the huge attachment to the listing was really necessary. Does Dumble or the amp really need an introduction?

Santana's [later] guitar tone generally invokes a "nails on chalkboard" reaction from me and the Dumble is probably a big part of it.

I find him to be an extremely boring guitarist.

And then there is that, too. I do confess to liking his early classic albums up through Moonflower.

i actually dig the dumble sound, although dumble's business ''practices'' leave more than a little to be desired, to say the least...

A bit of background on carlo's dumble-he acquired it (#76 made) from a cat and good friend by the name of Dave Workman. Originally, Dave loaned it to Carlos, who immediately fell in love with it-IIRC, this was 2008-9. Carlos eventually did buy it from DW (don't know the price, though I'm sure it's high 5 figures), then had dumble build a second ods, an exact clone of #76. When dumble wanted to tune the amp to carlo's playing and guitars, carlos insisted that the amp be EXACTLY the same as the original... It was left that way...

BTW, dumble was able to clone said amp because he apparently keeps extremely meticulous notes on every amp he builds, including actual parts values, mods performed, layout, etc.

$25k might seem unreal to us telly players, but it's kinda like expecting a ferrari priced like a chevy-ain't gonna happen! Dumbles are generally considered to have gotten that last 1% of the tone that we all chase after (assuming of course that is the tone we're chasing!!!) and of course, it's the last 1% that's the most expensive...

Dumble sounds awesome IMHO, but not for mere mortals like me!

This Dumble Rig is perfect for a Musician who wants glassy tone with powerful electronic amplification.

Attack of the Dumble Bashers. I'll bet you chuckleheads were the guys who beat up nerds in high school. Dumble threads always go this way here.

No, it's worth $45 large now and climbing. It will go over $50k.

There are only 200 of them in the world. You probably can't talk Dumble into building you one. They were around $3500 direct from Dumble.

Bet you wish you bought one.

There are supposedly around 1700 original Les Paul sunbursts out there. Those are $250,000 guitars. 1500 Burst owners need to find a different amp.

Out of curiosity, if Dumble amps sell for so much, and if Mr. Dumble is still alive, why isn't he making more amps? If someone wanted to pay me tens of thousands to build them an amp, I wouldn't be terribly reluctant to do so.

Also, are there any particular recordings that exemplify the sound of Dumble amps?

To me, it would be anything from Robben Ford or Larry Carlton (especially "Sapphire Blue" or "Firewire".)

In truth, though, Robben when on tour sometimes will use a Super or Twin Reverb and a Hermida Zen Drive and gets really, really close!

Alex, I'm not getting into a Dumble discussion here. Ted Turner said, "Preach to the converted". Preachin' to the un- converted gets nasty real quick. I can handle nasty people but why bother? I become a nasty person, too.

I occaisonally pick fights in the Wal-Mart parking lot. It's not something I'm in the mood for every day.

The quick 'n' dirty, just because you asked: Dumble is still alive and he's still building amps.

Money doesn't motivate everyone.

I recently had an opportunity to play a fresh Dumble.

Everyone says "Robben Ford, Larry Calton" then go on to say "you can get that with a pedal".

Try Mark Knopfler or Sonny Landreth.

Dumbles are on hundreds of records. Google to piece together a discography or sign in to Amp Garage. No problem preachin' to the converted over there.
