  • Can you tell the Dumble from the Line 6?

    I found this video I did a while back. I played Politician through two different amps, a Dumble Combo and a Line 6 Flextone. I did one take and recorded both at the same time. One is panned hard left the other hard right then I switched between them when it was done. They were isolated so there is no processing/bleed.


    Don't knock the playing, I never bothered to learn Politician, but it seemed like the best song to use for this. Just judge the Tonez.

    The quieter one (left) has some of the signature timbral bloom (toan).  The louder, right one is not so pronounced (lol) in those subtleties but seems to have the same vibe as the other. If I had to guess, I'd say the left one but I don't know.

    As to your playing, The Dumble's magic is in the response to picking dynamics and signal level. The demo is "generic rockin' " and doesn't go there.

      Would be much easier to say if the recording wsn't panned. One of your ears is stronger than the other at detecting harmonics and, reguardlesss, they both hear a bit differently.

       

      I would guess the one on the left, though. Hard to tell with this recording.

    I did the panning so it would be easy to tell when things swotched

      Ok, it's good playing and generically authentic. So it's not like you didn't feed the right side. I still llike the left side - there was even some sort of feedback. Which is it?

      I kind of liked the one on the right better. But why would anybody want a Dumble anyway.

      So when will we know which is which?

    Guessing left is Dumble.

    Either way, I prefer the one on the right.

      Just to muddy the watters a little more here is a Line 6 tiny POD with the Dumble Firmware Mod installed. It models the electrons in a crystal latice (which can not survive in a solid state amp) and really sounds great.

      Sadly, this was never released after Dr. D developed it but it works on any Pod 2.0 or higher. The clicky sounds are clipping the camcorder because I did this in my rec room.

      This is with the backing track:

    OK, so we've all guessed. Now tell us which is which.

      You're never going to tell which was which, aren't you?
