I've never tried a Dumble amp myself. I've never been close to one (except for some artists I saw on stage, but I wasn't that close anyway). I can't say that it sounds just like a clean Dumble Steel String but actually I don't really care much about that. What I can say is taht I like a lot of the sounds that come out of it played through a clean amp. It can be used as a very nice booster with lots of character and it surely is in the area of the tones I listen to on records of people that reportedly play with such amps.
It's a great sounding very well built low gain overdrive pedal. I love it!

A very good pedal
Herbie1964, 29.06.2020
Wonderfully open and transparent, very well made and combines easily with other drives. I use mine before a Shanks ODS-1 (Les Paul) or before a Wampler Tumnus Deluxe (Strat), for bluesy chunchy tone and great flexibility.

Clean Drive
XavierBor, 03.05.2020
Je l'utilise avec Strat et Les Paul sur ampli mesa boogie mark V.
Avec le gain de 0 à 5 elle fourni un clean boost très transparent
Avec le gain de 5 à 10 elle fourni un léger Crunch très bluesy.
La pédale booste les médiums et apporte une légère compression tout en respectant fidèlement le son de l'ampli et de la guitare
Plus on monte le "filter" plus le boost dans les médiums est présent.
Utilisé sur un léger Crunch elle vous fournira un boost/sustain incroyable toujours en restant très transparente.
Je n'ai jamais eu la chance de jouer sur un Dumble Steel String mais la pédale fourni un son clean proche de fender avec ce boost des médiums et cette légère compression fantastique.
Idéale pour jouer du blues !!
la version 1 est un classique depuis longtemps, et maintenant avec cette version MK2 plus compacte c'est parfait !

Dumble ?
Stephan877, 18.04.2020
Tja, klinkt das Ding wie der berühmte Steel-String-Singer? Keine Ahnung. Wie die meisten von uns habe ich diesen Amp noch nie in freier Wildbahn zum Antesten aufgefunden.
Macht nix. Klingt prima, das Pedal.
Minus:
- Zwei der drei Regler sind zu klein. Das nervt ein wenig
- Klanglich besonders flexibel ist die Kiste nicht, es geht eher in Richtung One-Trick-Pony. Aber das macht nichts, denn...
Plus:
- ... der Klang ist sehr gut, wenn es darum geht, einen fetten Clean-Sound zu erzeugen.
