Since we're on the subject of Dumbo clones...
Has anyone built a steel string singer clone? I always see talk of the ODS, but never SSS. Anyone got schems for one? If anyone has any, or knows where to get some on the net, email em to me! -Jeremy

I think the deal is that there are so few SSS that no owner has had the temerity to bust one open.  
 
'sides we're a bunch of gainheads around here :)

Hmmm.. unlike the ODS, the SSS amps are not potted inside.

I recently read some pretty negative comments on Bill Morgan's site, regarding the SSS. This was at a "Dumble Shootout" held recently in Japan. From the comments, it's obviously a bright and abrasive sounding amp (some have compared it to the Carvins, built during that timeframe when Howards shop was oddly enough, around the corner from Carvin's). Yes, it's PC board and unpotted. After you read this review, you might not be all that interested in this amp...it's apparently no ODS

Q{I recently read some pretty negative comments on Bill Morgan's site, regarding the SSS. }  
 
Yes, Bill didn't like the one he played. Of course, I know that if RF were using SSSs, Bill would try that amp again and like it :D - if you're reading, Bill, you know I ain't lying. :)

That may well be. It, however, wouldn't explain why people like SRV, Eric Johnson and Larry Carlton (after playing EJ's amp before it was shipped to Austin in 1993) liked these amps, bought them and played them...

Well, to say it's build on a PCB is too vague, Andy! It's built on several home-made PCBs which interconnect with one another! Of course, the ODS is already PCB - all but the preamp board.  
 
Cheers,
