Hey Guys,

Hope all are well smile.gif

Rarely do i talk about gear, but i just wondered whether anyone has ever heard/seen/played one of these mythical beasts, and whether they really do live up to their $50000 reputation!

Any thoughts welcome.

Ben

Hello Andrew,

Really? Theyre the amps that Larry Carlton, Robben Ford use, and are extremely coveted.

If you like that type of music...But they reach prices such as $50000, or are at least promoted at that much.

Made by Howard Dumble.

And Eric Johnson, SRV and Santanna according to Wikipedia - interesting. Don't think I'll ever afford one ...

Indeed, lol. Silly money, but apparently a fair few people have seen them/played them, considering their rarity/price!

Never played them - only heard about them from SRV interviews (appearenty he used dumble simultaneously with a whole bunch of other amps..). I'd love to try one though - expensive amps are always a blast to play! biggrin.gif

Yup I've heard rumours, stories, legends and tall tales about them but I never seen one - like the Yeti smile.gif. Sounds a bit expensive that price tag just to move a bit of air lol.

But I believe they're the biz - must be if the guys mentioned use them, but to justify that price tag hmm. You could buy a lot of things with 50 grand - send me the money and I'll do a live experiment on it if you like smile.gif.

Wow, old thread ! That was way back before I learned anything at all about amps, it was a whole month after that that I decided to build my own! Hmmm. Maybe I can sell the A.C.1 on eBay.... maybe for $5 laugh.gif
