  • Do you like this amp and is it worth $50,000

    Amazing sounding mint conditioned EL34 based Dumble1x12 (EV 12L) Combo. It's a mid 90's 100W model: HRM overdrive circuit with Skyline EQ. The subject amp has no breaks/issues/dings/mods, period and it's 100% original. 
    It's on Ebay if you would like to purchase.

      why are dumbles so highly valued?  are they made out of moon rocks and unicorn tears?  are they powered by SRV's bound soul instead of tubes?  i don't get it?

    No way.  I'd have to sell my gazebo to buy that.

      Too thin, all the knobs'd bump into each other.

      You'd think they'd sort that out for 50 large wouldn't you?

      I think "Howard" laid that amp on its side and sat on it

    I played a SSS in the 90's and wasn't impressed. I was young and my playing was much different.


    I plaed a mint 80's OD50 A couple years back. I came.


    They are like no other amp if you play a certain style. It is the most touch sensitive, dynamic amp I have ever played. The gain was at 2:30 and it would go from clean to full crunch by how hard you picked WITH ALOMST NO LOSS IN AMPLITUDE. No volume knob of my PRS at 9 the whole time. Low output pickups make it even more dynamic.


    The guy who owned it is getting plans together for a gear museum in Chattanooga. He keeps it and 2 other dumbles and a bunch of other drool worthy amps in an "amp vault" at his house and in his studio complex. And don't get me started on his guitar collection.


    If 50 k meant as much to my budget as 2 K did, I'd buy it in a second.

    Yes, I like it, though I'd probably prefer the 50w version better.


    Worth it?  Market value based on rarity/demand:  Probably. 

    Worth it to me?  Hell no.  The Ceriatone kit is tempting, though.

      Those Ceriatone's have really jumped up in price.  I have one of those 7/18 watt Plexi clones, but even at 7 watts it is too loud to use at home and for gigs I still can't get past my Boogie.

      50K is worth about 500$. If I had slinger money I'd for sure look into owning one.

      no and no. Dumble amps are not used on any of my top 200 guitar albums.

    I will be sending a Certified Draft which is generally acceptable to cover the cost as am completely interested. I will need the details below of whom & where to mail the payment;

    1.Name to be on the check
    2.Home or office address
    3.Cellphone number

    Please note that Courier Service do not deliver to P.O Box. However,
    my mover will pick up the item right after the payment as been delivered. Kindly delete the posting as am committed to buying it. I recently move here on a job transfer and it's a great buy.

      Of course it's not worth $50k, you wouldn't take an amp that cost that much to a gig and if you cranked up a 100 watt amp at home the cops would be breaking down your gazebo doors. The fascination with Dumbles is absolutely ridiculous, for 50 grand you could buy a Blackface Deluxe Reverb, a Tweed Bassman, a Magnatone M-10, a Supro Thunderbolt, a blackface Super Reverb, two plexi Marshalls and still have enough money left to **************** that $1,700 hooker that Jimmy James is into for a month. Although I'd pass on the whore thing.
