The Wonderland Overdrive has been one of our most popular amplifiers. It boasts beautiful cleans and a singing harmonic overdrive. It’s an extremely versatile amplifier that complements all styles of guitars and pickups. It’s open and uncompressed, with fat mid tones and big low end. With its three band EQ and complementary boost switches, it’s easy to select a different tone setting.
This amplifier is optimized for both live and studio environments, but it also sounds great at lower volumes. It has half-power when you need it. Available in 22w, 50w, or 100w we can accommodate any playing situation.
Plugging into the Wonderland Overdrive, you will experience a fluid and organic connection that makes the amplifier an extension of your instrument.
The Dirty Wonderland is a single channel amp design, with bold and full-bodied blackface style tones. Its voice is uncompressed and open, revealing a unique tonal breath with even light pick attack.
Plugging into the amp, you can adjust the three-band EQ or select any of the three EQ boost switches, bright/mid/deep; which allow for a great deal of flexibility when dialing in. The amp has a preamp gain volume and a transparent master volume that allow you to crank up the preamp when you want more attitude in your playing.
The Dirty Wonderland’s abundance of headroom makes for an excellent pedal platform. The amp loves to run drive pedals up front, and time-based effects in the loop.
One of the amps best qualities is the intricate 3-tube long decay reverb circuit. The effect is spacious, full, and deep, with the “send” and “return” controls, you can tune the depth and desired level of the effect. The amp is equipped with a half power mode and external bias adjustment.
The Overdrive Reverb is one of our most exciting new amp models. Filled with great tones that are offered both clean and overdriven, this amp is extremely musical and loaded with great features to empower you with any tone you desire.
The amps clean tone is abundant in character and you will be enlightened with sparkly and bright clarity or mellow out with darker and more rounded clean tones. There is a strong overdrive on board with high output and uncompressed raw bite, empowering you with a voice that cuts through the mix and extends the connection of your instrument.
Both channels have their respective preamp ‘gain’ controls combined with a ‘ratio’ control on the back panel acting as a master volume for each channel. The channels are available by engaging the mini toggle switch on the front of the amp or with the included footswitch. The footswitch also offers a ‘preamp boost’ which is also available by the manual switch on the back of the amp.
The Bombshell Overdrive captures the tonal essence of the original Dumble Overdrive Special. This two-channel design is remarkably powerful with prominent full-bodied tone.
The amplifier emulates a late 80’s Overdrive Special with the Robben Ford style ‘high-plate skyliner” preamp. The clean channel is full and robust, slightly compressed but clear, with a clean sustain that you will feel through your guitar. The overdrive channel is spirited, articulate, and filled with the tonal attributes and timbral qualities of a real Dumble.
The Bombshell Overdrive responds to the player with controlled feedback, honk and singing harmonics that will send you and your guitar into tonal nirvana.
Ampliphonix and Gain
The Ampliphonix and Gain is a multifaced amplifier with two completely independent preamp channels. The ‘Ampliphonix’ channel is a modified Fender Bassman design that feels alive with warmth and vibrant character. The articulate cleans are shimmery and beautifully transparent but can get aggressive when pushed with heavier pick attack. The ‘Gain’ channel delivers a huge high gain Marshall Plexi voice reminiscent of the EVH brown sound. It has many different levels of gain saturation, with cool classic rock tones reminiscent of Hendrix or the Allmans, or you can dial in heavier capitulating levels of gain.
The amplifier channel switches from the included footswitch, and has a tube reverb built into both channels that can also be turned on and off from the footswitch.
Steel String Singer
Our Steel String Singer is the pinnacle of clean hi wattage guitar amplifiers. With it’s 150 watt 6550 power section, it delivers huge tone with unmatched headroom and a giant sonic footprint.
The three-button footswitch controls Preamp Boost, toggles the FET input, and has a defeat switch for the lush tube reverb. The Amplified Nation Steel String Singer is based off of Dumble SSS #005, which was originally built for Eric Johnson; the voicing is hi-fi, crystal clean, and extremely powerful. The six-position tone filters give a lot of tonal flexibility when changing guitars or needing a quick EQ change.
The amp stays clean to very high volume levels, making it a great pedal platform. Half power is standard and the amp boasts dual bias adjustment pots as another cool feature in its slightly oversized format. These amps are transformative and will take your guitar tone to the next level.
