Dumbloid Boost Special

The Dumbloid Boost Special is a mythical pedal that many guitarists talk about, but that very few in the end have been able to try! Yes, it is a rare pedal that is difficult to obtain. A bit of history, the Shin's Music Dumbloid is the standard-bearer of the Japanese brand. Based on the sound of 5 original Dumble amps that belong to Japanese owners, it mimics the behavior of the Lead channel as faithfully as possible. So +50,000 euros or a few hundred? For ordinary mortals, this is THE solution because it's simply THE best pedal of its kind!

Outwardly, you're going to say "eh oh what are these Dymo labels!". Well it's the desired style and all the brand's pedals are housed in the same boat. For what? It is representative of the Shin's Music philosophy, namely an artisanal production where everything is modifiable and adaptable. This is the case with the Dumbloid which comes in several versions, each benefiting from its own specific little "tweak". The box is of very good quality. It has a relic finish with very nice crackled cellulo varnish. The components are of high quality and the assembly neat. About the circuit, don't ask us what makes it up, everything is "gooped" to keep it secret.
The Dumbloid Boost Special has controls for Drive (gain), Accent (presence & post gain), Tone, Volume and Boost. Also, a mini-toggle switch allows you to switch from a Rock to Jazz mod (different compression and output level). Finally, it is powered by 9VDC in the usual way.

Compared to the Special version, this Boost Special version benefits from an additional post-gain boost. Connected to a Two-Rock Classic Reverb which is a clean platform with a lot of headroom, we activate the Dumbloid Special with everything at 12:00 except the volume at 09:00 because it clearly has a level of horse! It's loud!
First thing, it does not blow, it does not "pok" when you engage. Second, no god it's FAT!!! Rarely have we heard an overdrive deliver so much thickness and harmonic content on every note. There are definitely overdriven channel tones from amps that just can't come close to 50% of the organic side of the Dumbloid. The lower mid is huge, the upper mid is sharp, chiseled, with an impressive "honk". It grates, it grips with bite (grit for our English-speaking friends). The dynamics are exceptional, it's like once again, really on an excellent tube amp channel. The Accent and Tone knobs act in total interaction, one allows to manage the compression, the gain post gain and the brilliance, the other to open more or less the sound. With the Gain at 10-12:00 it already beats hard, but with the Gain at 15:00, not only is there a thickness of madness, but in addition, an almost infinite sustain! We're in the purest Bonamassa, Johnson and other style... It's fluid, connected, with an ultra-wide spectrum... It's also ultra easy and fun to play. Don't throw any more! Surprise, lowering the volume knob, the Dumbloid clean wonderfully, despite a significant amount of gain in reserve. Let's finish with the additional boost slice. This allows you to accentuate the low end of the spectrum by adding roundness and a small additional "dark" side. The boost also allows you to highlight the enormous dynamics of the pedal and to add a little more harmonics in the top.

This Shin's Music Dumbloid Boost Special is a powerful little bomb. Its attack which literally "blooms", its very organic compression and its ultra wide spectrum make it one of the best references on the market. An absolute must have.
