Dumble amps were made famous by artists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Larry Carlton, Santana, and John Mayer to name a few. But if you listen closely, you can hear the legendary amplifiers on some of your favorite pop hits from the 70’s onward.
Today, I’m showing you 5 songs that you (probably) didn’t know used a Dumble amplifier! Additionally, I’m having my good friend Tim Marco recreate each tone using a Deluxe Reverb and an Ultraphonix Overdrive with a touch of Delay from the Source Audio Collider.
If you know of a song that used a Dumble that we didn’t mention, let us know in the comments below!
