So here I was thinking myself a pedal connoisseur. I have a pretty decent collection with pricey ones, cheap ones, and oddball. However I had never heard of a Shin Dumbloid. I have a fellow guitar nerd friend and we always lend out various gear to each other to try out. Yesterday I went over to pick up a Tumnus I had lent him to try out and he hands me a Shin Dumbloid clone and says to try it out. I had no idea what it was. From the name I gathered it was some sort of Dumble amp pedal. But I've never tried any of those before. I knew it was a quality clone though. He got it from a local guy that makes all kinds of clones that he sells on Craigslist (and I have used his other pedals, top notch clones.) So a little Google research and I got the basic idea what the pedal is. And plugging it in...I was really surprised. Great sound, huge headroom. So I'm interested in a little more info on the pedal if you all have any experience. In my current rig I use a Xotic RC Booster at the beginning of my chain for my core clean sound. Just to give my signal a little push and add sparkle, with all the other drive (all low gain) pedals after into blackface fender. And my first thought is to try this as the core clean pedal instead. Thanks for any wisdom you have on this!
