« on: November 20, 2007, 07:43:32 am »
OMFG!!! There's an amp on ebay that's going for $55,000+ and the reserve still isn't met!!

I don't know what it is but it seems to be one super boutique amp!!

Dumbles are supposed to be some sort of wickedly awesome boutique amp. I would have just taken the $55K and get someone to build me a custom amp.

Both Larry Carlton and Robben Ford have a Dumble Special Overdrive model.  Alexander Dumble's amps are known for a sweet, creamy, warm tone that just gets better as the amp gets turned up.  The cheapest I've ever seen one was $10k.  The main reason they're priced so high is that Dumble doesn't make'em anymore....

Butch is right.. a lot of people have tried. One of the many reasons why is because Dumble pours black epoxy over the circuit board to cover everything up. The guys who own Dumbles without the epoxy coating have all been asked by Mr. Dumble not to share pictures or schematics of anything. However, there are a few guys out there who have Dumble schematics from way back when.. but they're not willing to share either.
