What Do We Think?
Firstly, this amp is all about the cathode follower. Based off Dumble serial #005, it utilizes an additional 12AT7 to boost your clean headroom before the power tubes and ensure they are seeing a big, clear signal coming out of your preamp section. Harmonics are alive. Cleans are big and lush, with no unwanted sag.
Secondly, the 6-position High and Low filter controls. Even before you go tweaking your EQ, start here. Each provides six varying roll-off frequencies for superb control of your top and bottom end. These are enormously useful, especially given the massive EQ range of the amp. We tend to run both filters back a couple notches and fine-tune to suit the guitar.
And then you still have a full 3-band EQ section and presence control. The tonal contouring options on this amp are unparalleled. We love where the midrange EQ sits. Roll it past noon to give the amp a gloriously round and smooth midrange, or cut it back for a “glassier” tone without triggering any ice-picky highs.
Finally, the three toggle switches piggy back on the tonestack for a degree of variety perhaps unsurpassed by any other clean amp. The Rock/Jazz switch in the up position pushes the amp into a subtle but creamy overdrive depending on the guitar and input gain. The Deep and Bright switches speak for themselves, and the boosts they provide will also aid in pushing the amp into breakup.
The tube-driven reverb is just as lush as the rest of the circuitry, utilizing three preamp tubes to deliver you the best reverb tones in town. With independent send and return controls, you decide whether you are looking for a big pre-delay that pushes your notes aside or a more nuanced flavor that kicks in behind the note attack. From mild to outright spacey, you can have it all.
Of particular note, this amp brings a Strat to life with all the big & snappy lows, juicy mids and syrupy highs you could ever want. And yet it puts an incredible chirp on your humbuckers as well. And the 6-position filters mentioned above come in exceedingly useful for taming any extreme frequencies of whatever guitar you might plug in.
The included 2-button footswitch engages a preamp boost and FET bypass (giving you a choice between FET or NORMAL voicings when plugged into the FET input). The preamp boost pushes the amp into some brisk breakup. Use the volume on the guitar to control this and hone it to your liking. The FET input is glassy and spirited. Though perhaps not for the faint of heart, it does sound glorious and puts your guitar right on top in a mix.
