3  Ceriatone / Overtone / Re: Overtone rackmount PREAMP????? on: January 13, 2010, 01:39:26 PM
Disagree totally. The preamp is the sound of the circuit. The dumble power amp ain't significantly different than a fender. Ethos proves it by getting dumble sounds out of a jfet based "umble" preamp.

I agree, although "speaker emulation" might have some bearing on tone.

I know many people on the Gear Page think as I. A Class D style tube preamp would be the greatest invention since the bread slicer.

No, speaker emulation on that is just a lowpass filter. Many people on TGP are delusional too. Cheesy

The dumble sound is in the preamp. People can think what they want. People on TGP routinely think that something's better just because it costs more.

Look at the schematics. The power section has few significant differences from what fender or marshall has done.

Maybe I'm missing something but where's the hrm board in that diagram? Are there schematics available?

thanks but i want to see a schematic or layout diagram with values.

where are the diagrams for the HRM board?

Great product idea, but you might be dissapointed by the sound of a preamp, through other poweramps/speakers. IMO the Dumble poweramp and EV12L or 12G65s are an integrated part of the sound.

Just glancing at the jpgs I don't see the HRM board.
9  Ceriatone / Overtone / Fuchs Verbrator (Dumblator) pedal! on: November 05, 2008, 11:10:37 AM
This is a demo of the prototype Fuchs Verbrator used as a tube buffer instead of as an effect loop. It is the last device in my effect chain prior to my amplifier.

The reverb you hear is coming from the pedal. Unlike the standard dumblator, the Fuchs has a digital reverb circuit built in.

Note that this was not the original purpose of the design for this pedal but as you can see, it turns my bass amp into a pretty nice sounding tube amp!

For this demo I am using a bass amp. It's a Markbass LMII which is a great bass amp but is one of the driest and sterile sounding amps for electric guitar that I have ever heard! It does *NOT* have reverb.

In this demo I am using an Epiphone Elitist Les Paul Copy with Dimarzio 36th Anniversary PAF pickups, a Fuchs Valve Job (for overdrive), later an Area 51 Fuzz pedal and later a Tim pedal.

I actually use my EL84 ceriatone and my plexi as much as I use the OTS. I'm actually quite happy with the other 2 ceriatones and a zendrive. Plus, I recently aquired a '64 Vibraverb clone which I really like.
11  Ceriatone / Overtone / Re: 3rd channel on OTS on: July 22, 2008, 03:37:38 PM
Just buy a zendrive and use that as your 3rd channel!
12  Ceriatone / Overtone / Re: Tweaked Layout on: July 22, 2008, 03:36:59 PM
So what were the quirks?

From my experience you can get good tone from a SS amp or even a good pedal for that matter, but for me, I think the touch sensitive thing just isn't there with SS amps.

That's a generalization like saying you can't get a pristine clean out of a tube amp. The peavey bandit and the pritchard are both extremely touch sensitive. More so than many modern tube amps.

The problem with the pritchard is that he didn't have the treble and presence frequencies dialed in properly. It's like getting the correct bypass caps and coupling caps in a tube amp but much harder (for me at least) to experiment with... He used a couple players' opinions for dialing it in and i'm not sure he was using the "right" people.

The overtone is a completely different type of amp. My pritchard compared very favorably with my Allen Old Flame with a better master volume. It had more of a fender vibe to it but there's no reason why it couldn't be crafted with a dumble tone in mind. It just wasn't and Pritchard didn't seem to be interested in pursuing anything other than what they already had.
13  Ceriatone / Overtone / Re: Tweaked Layout on: July 22, 2008, 07:46:05 AM
Well this Jack Z. definitely owns a tube amp, so maybe he changed his mind or there is more than one Jake. Z.



Yes, that's me. I did sell a couple amps when I got the pritchard and it was fantastic but had a lot of quirks and Eric Pritchard was a good guy but wasn't quite sure how to dial it in . I'm convinced that he could do it if he had more good players involved in the tweaking process.
14  Ceriatone / Overtone / Re: fx loop question on: July 04, 2008, 09:10:36 AM
You need an update on the Kleinulator


Your are ruining you fine DUMBLE tone through your processors AD/DA converters.

You might argue that Robben Ford is using digital devices in serial Dumbleator loop, yes but the TC 2290, has an analog internal parallel mixer.The vast majority of digital processors will ruin your signal. Period  Wink

That's an exaggeration. Lots of folks run serial digital delays and reverbs in their loop, period. Wink

Ok, but surely you're a strat player -

uh, no. I have a couple les pauls, a sadowsky semi, a 339 and yes, a strat.
