I stand corrected thought the amp was 6l6 no wonder when I put 34s in for tube selection it sounds great.My Dumble is S/N 0213 IIRC. It's an EL-34 ODS HRM. I wouldn't put a G3 stamp on the model if I didn't feel it matched the amp. The model is actually better than the amp because it doesn't cost $80,000.
$80,000? Please tell me that is an exaggeration?! I already was feeling bad that I wasn't playing that model...My Dumble is S/N 0213 IIRC. It's an EL-34 ODS HRM.

Hey austinbuddy- first off, thanks for sharing some of your kit with Cliff both past and present. Second.. I had the chance to briefly play through Stephen Bruton's ODS while at a gig here in Austin a few years before he passed. Through one of those 4x10 Marshall cabs that looks like a smaller 4x12 shape. I've not played any other Dumbles before or sense, but that brief experience was an eye opener. I played his vintage 335 ('59 maybe?) so that added to the experience. Not sure if you happen to have ever met Stephen or that amp... I've always wondered about it. Miss hearing that guy as well...Personally quite pleased with the G3 Dumble models currently in the AXE FX; Cliff did a great job with those with G3. Those amp models are very versatile and can be dialed in for lots of different tones. You have to be a clean player else the amps are unforgiving -- every little thing comes through. I been truly lucky enough to have played through several real ODS Dumbles belonging to "famous players," some of which were magic, but some of which I did not care for -- they really do vary player by player.
actually David Lindleys Steel String Singer is for sale unless its been purchased the asking price was $250,000$80,000? Please tell me that is an exaggeration?! I already was feeling bad that I wasn't playing that model...
Funny, huh? What I said a few times back in the days.....I stand corrected thought the amp was 6l6 no wonder when I put 34s in for tube selection it sounds great.
that is now the 2nd el 34 amp Ive known about.
EL34 Ds were not so rare, My guess is Mr. D also experimate with transformer mismatch by design My 6V6GT based ODS circuit uses a special OT with a higher primary impedance - gives me a rounder tone.And as a little side kick to the ODS 213 models, I spend my ODS 102 patch a virtual set of EL34s, since the ODS 213 should be an EL34 based ODS by design
Hi, could you please update them? they're like firmware 10, but hey, they might sound good. what am I looking for? I encourage everyone to start using axechange more, share your goodies! we all need good sounding fw 18 presets now I'm going to share some tooCheck my patches - most of them features the transformer match and NFB tweak....
