Finally, a Dumble style amp that is flexible with all different types of guitars, has reverb, and doesn’t cost as much as a Kia! The Wonderland Overdrive v2 is our most well rounded amplifier, providing glorious cleans and a righteous medium to high gain musical overdrive. The amp is extremely easy to set up and loaded with modern day conveniences, housed in a beautifully crafted headshell or combo.
The Wonderland Overdrive v2 was based off of the ‘JM sig’, a Blackface Fender/Dumble SSS creation, that has beautiful full-bodied tone, a balanced EQ, and the perfect response for a Strat, Tele, or Les Paul style guitar. It’s a very familiar sound that echos the playing of Mayer and SRV.
The drive channel is a beefy, smooth overdrive with complex harmonics and a honky growl; a tone inspired by the searing leads of Joe Bonamassa. Fully loaded with tones from classic rock to modern day blues to hard rock and funk, the amp will give you whatever tone you are searching for. The drive controls have a custom taper so the gain comes on earlier on the knob rotation. This helps dial in great tones at lower volume levels and delivers an easier set-up experience when trying to match the clean and overdrive volume levels.
The amp has all the D-style attributes; endless sustain, controlled feedback, honky mids, bloom, chirp, and fluid touch sensitivity. The amp has quite a few ways to tune your sound, including three EQ boosts (bright, mid, and deep), on-board reverb, and preamp boost on both channels. A two-button footswitch toggles the channels and operates the boost. The amp is dead silent when running idle.
The amp is built into a durable, USA made, powdercoated aluminum chassis and the lettering is silk screened and baked on at high temperatures. We do not use faceplates as they tend to warp and crack over time. The chassis is loaded with cold-forged hardware that will never come loose when on tour or surviving grueling travel to gigs. Circuit boards are CNC punched and the amp is handwired with high end components including Orange Drop capacitors, F&T electrolytic filters, new production Dale and Koa resistors, and custom taper control pots.
We have spent years perfecting the Wonderland Overdrive so you can just focus on playing and sounding great. This second generation v2 is the most user-friendly design with the greatest return on your investment and a dead-quiet reverb circuit.
