Both new amps aim to replicate the mythical Dumble-style topology.

Amplified Nation

Boston, MA (July 10, 2018) -- Introducing our Ampliphonix and Gain! This amp is incredible and has two independent circuits (clean and gain) and reverb on both channels. We were lucky enough to have a real Dumble Ultraphonix in the shop for almost a year and have created our own modern version of the amp. It includes a footswitch and effects loop in a beautifully engineered powdercoated chassis. Demo coming soon!

Introducing the Bombshell Overdrive! It is the first of two new amps for 2018! Based off of the Dumble ODS, the Bombshell Overdrive holds true to its roots without adding anything to the signal path. This amp is all tone! This particular model in "Kermit" suede has EL34 tubes and is a rock machine! This is a hand wired 80's style Dumble with singing high gain, endless sustain, and beautiful blooming harmonics. The clean channel is chimey and slightly British which compliments the aggressive overdrive perfectly. It comes in 15 different colors and a handful of different preamp and power amp combinations.

Bombshell Overdrive highlights include:

  • Available in 22, 50, or 100w
  • Two channel amp powered by 6L6 or EL34 power tubes
  • Passive effects loop
  • 4/8/16 ohm switchable with extension jack
  • Black or Silver Powdercoated Chassis
  • Two button footswitch with locking DIN cable
  • Size: 21″ W x 11″ T x 10″ D
  • Weight: 38-46lb

Bombshell Overdrive amps are completely custom designed and built. Prices range from $3199 to $3499.

Presets extend the flexibility of an already expansive and easy-to-use reverb.

Intuitive. Great range in all controls. Well-built.

Some digital artifacts at long decay times.


Walrus Audio Slötvå


Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
