A Dumble for 160k?

If you are in the Seattle area you might want to take a look at the most expensive amp ever. A rare (rarer) Dumble is going for $160k.  Looks like it has a fresh set of Groove Tubes so that’s worth something.

I’m actually more of a Trainwreck person. Check out the article here.

What’s in the Box

I recently came across the JHS Little Black Amp Box.

It’s a little box that goes in an amp’s effects loop and promises cranked tube tone at lower volume. From what I can tell it’s just a box with a volume knob in it. So, basically, it would act as a master volume. If your amp already has a master volume it’s probably not needed but if you have an effects loop and no master volume this could be useful.
