    Sigh. My normal get-out for these sorts of things is that I'll have to muck around to get them to play nicely on 240v. This one is actually voltage switchable (were they all like that?) so I guess I'll have to buy it...

    My wife thinks it looks horrible.

    I'm gonna have to pass. She has taste, though, she likes my Orange amps.

    You can tell her she's lucky that your hobby isn't collecting cars. :)

    when i see stuff like this, i have a little moment wherein i fantasize i've won a gigantic lottery and can afford to buy anything i want, price doesn't matter. but i always reel it in with the knowledge that $2000 would buy all the amp i would ever need. then, on this dumble, i'd have $125,000 left over to help some people who need it. i would rather help the truly needy than buy something like this.

    besides, i could own 12 dumbles and i still wouldn't sound like robben ford.

    But you can imagine a mandolin being worth $140k?

    I'm wondering if anything on/in it has degraded over time.

    Does it really sound that good?
    In what way? Is it like having a 21yo Bridget Bardot whispering sweet luuuv in your ear or something...?
    Not sure even that would be worth +100K...

    And they don't sound much worse than a Dumble.
