I reworked the Deluxe-umble reverb to have an onboard FX.

I liked the idea of reverb going into an active FX AND I liked the idea that the FX could also be used as an increase in gain in itself.

With some of the recent interest in clean sounding Dumblish amps that have reverb and or vibrato, I thought this could be an interesting amp idea.

With respect, 10thtx

EDIT: added another version without active FX. This one might actually be somewhat easier to build.

This is a single ended dumblish style amp called a stratifier.

TAG member abecknell shared this.

Compared his to Mat's mini-HRM/D-EL84 and 86 special

Some clean D-style amp ideas with schematic and layout.

I had someone ask me about the Tweed BluezMeister clean but with reverb added. So, I drew this up.

Check for errors! Compare schematic with layout. IF there is a discrepancy, go with the schematic.

Some low wattage D-inspired amps.

I have built the D'Mars ODS 6K6 and like it a lot.

The TBM 6BM8 is one I have not built. However, I have built 6BM8 amps and like them a lot.

The D'Mars ODS 6SN7 is simply an idea that I think would be pretty cool

CHECK for errors!

Another idea to consider ............

The Mars & Dmbl is an idea using a Marshallish and a Dumblish preamp into a ECL84 power amp.

OK, just finished a Tweed BluezMeister with 5879 & CF for the OD. This amp has a VERY cranked overdriven tone that is not muddy at all. I can get sustain that goes into feedback on almost any note with the OD and the mid boost engaged.

IMO, the amp sounds HUGE for a small amp the size of a 5E3 Deluxe.

Another idea of using the 5879 OD in an attempt to get the Larry Carlton Dumblish "Ripper" tone. B+ rail is on the 2nd page.

10thTx... If I was going to build just one from the last two pages, which one should it be?

I have a donor chassis, cab and iron including rev tx and choke.

Pt is 350-0-350 @250mH.
Ot is pp for two 6L6s or EL34s.

Just saw this

I think the D'Mars ODS is the very best sounding amp I've built or played ever. The clean tone is just incredible to me. And in both the clean and the OD, it has a musical sweetness to it that is remarkable, IMO.

The original D'Mars ODS had the overdrive using the 5879. I later changed the 5879 out to have an active FX loop on board.

In my ideal world, I would have wanted both but the chassis did not have room for another tube unfortunately.

How about a schematic for a SSS without step filters, overdrive loop, tremolo, and reverb loop. :) Like the Dumbleland/ODS of the #121.

BluezMeister 6G16

Post by 10thTx » Sun Apr 20, 2014 10:57 pm

This is essentially the clean channel of my Tweed BluezMeister with no OD channel & instead having reverb and vibrato added. I think the clean tone on this amp is actually one of the best I've heard.

IF there is a inconsistency between the schematic and layout, go with schematic. As always, CHECK for errors!

I guess (at some level), this is sort of an idea of the Small Special but cathode biased and 14 watts with 6V6's.

A couple of more ideas :

Dumble & OD/ JCM800

and

Dumble/JCM800 into OD

DRAFT ideas in response to a post by Talbany regarding an UltraPhoenix Plus idea.
