i've never gotten the fascination with these.
isn't Dumb-Bell dead? who the F is gonna repair this thing? also who is the admin / mod of TGP? i am sleeping over @ his mom's house tonight and she is trying to dial his number to make sure he put his retainer in before bedtime LOL
Cool idea with the EHX Reverb! Was the face plate made for you by Nik?
Sorry @David Barnett, I do not see any difference between Ceriatone and all the others rippers at ampgarage in that field.
Or maybe yes : Ceriatone doesn't claim any ripping or property rights, and Nik is a kind guy, able and prompt to answer precise technical questions, instead of trying to give you dogmatic expert lessons with evasive replies...
But it's my personal appreciation, OK ?
I thought the same thing (about time for sale). If you click on "Product Specs" it will show you how long it's been on Reverb.
Our much sought after Dumble?....7 months.
I'll give it a few more days for you all to drool over it, before I hit the 'purchase' button...
(said the guy who's getting laid off come Monday...).
Not that my opinion is worth much, but I'd get a Fuchs.
I already got mine...
Thanks, @Heavy Formvar !
No. I designed the panels myself (vectorial drawing software that generates compliant-files with engraving CNC machines) and had them laser-engraved at a local specialized workshop - I do this for all my builds (not a cheap way, though !) :
As you can see, there's some extras facilities vs. the Dumble & Clones.
- FSWable Reverb.
- FSWable FX loop at FX (-10dB) level (no need of a Dumbleator extension).
- 4x 9VSC regulated outputs for external FXs (if I put them on the amp, which is practical).
- 4 different power modes : 5W / 15W / 30W / 90W.
Off topic, but COOL website! You make some fine amps. I DIG the two tone tolex!!
Yeah...if I were still alive and my used amps were demanding HUGE $$$, I think I'd find the time to make and sell one or ten new ones a year...but then again, I'm not a mad genius.
Thanks @Rufus !
Well, making a two-tone or multiple-tone Tolexing is not much difficult than a single tone, in fact, once you've got the trick...
I'd be happy with a nice bluesbreaker reissue. Even then I'd find it hard to justify a couple of grand for an amp. But the guts of 100 large? Nah.
Yes, I can tell you it's a great amp both in tone and look, @scottser, for sure : I had a few one coming on my bench for servicing... Big, heavy and loud !
Do you use the "overlap both pieces of the tolex and then cut both at the same time" method?
If not, what method do you use?
Cool. Can you post your thoughts on it or some clips? I'd be very interested to hear your comments
Just how I like my women..
It is worth what people are willing to pay for it.
That's it, exactly ! And thanks to describe it with the correct English words... I should note it for further reference !
On the picture below, you can see how I managed to trace the seam on my Serial Tone Killer amp cab, and yes, both pieces overlap and will be cut with a cutter along a rule following the trace :
Reverb does show how long it’s been on there. Just hit specs. 7 months. They didn’t remove that information, just tucked it away.
True - as for so many other things... Just think about vintage guitars, for example !
I am not so cynical about what original Dumble amps are worth these days. I think it is kind of cool that without any advertising/marketing he got such a legendary status (purely because of his technical abilities). He and his amps surely put their mark on famous guitar sounds. And Alexander Dumble never charged his customers such prices. In fact they were quite reasonable at the time, from what I read. He never cared to produce/sell as many amps as he could. He just felt he could create something special for guitarists he admired. And he surely did (all on his own). I am happy that people like Dumble exist. He was VERY good at what he did (creating guitar amps!).
