We just became an authorized dealer for Shin's Music / Dumbloid effects! These pedals immediately caught our attention as they're absolutely next level when it comes to sweet, touch-sensitive overdrive and impeccably clean, transparent boost. The Dumble-like tones that come out of these little stompboxes is unreal! The controls are extremely responsive and allow for a massive spectrum of tonal options, all of which are completely usable. Furthermore, these pedals are stackable and the gain structures play off of one another when used in conjunction.
In Jazz mode you can coax tones of many famous players from Robben Ford to Larry Carlton. The tone get full, woody, round characteristics. Kick it in to Rock mode and you get more mids and focus a-la Robben Ford, Keith Urban, Santana. There is quite a bit of headroom in this pedal it can be used as an organic boost to a full on Overdrive Special! The Drive control gently ramps up the gain, while the Accent controls the sensitivity and dynamics that correspond with the input coming from the instrument.
Controls: Drv, Accent (Cut/Presence), Tone, Volume

Not sure which pedal is right for you? Here's a quick and easy guide:
Standard Dumbloid model with true Dumble cascading gain. Silky-smooth, malleable and very touch sensitive overdrive.
Dumbloid 335 Special
Very similar to the Standard dumbloid special. The main difference is it dials out some of the fuzz in the upper mid range Very similar to Larry Carlton hence the 335.
Overdrive Dumbloid Special
This pedal takes the gain and low end one step further. Think hot rodded Marshall HRM. Nice low end with tons of gain on tap.
The velvet boost is an independent low gain germanium boost that hits the Dumbloid circuit to add more gain to a standard Dumbloid.
*The boost function can be added to any pedal; just like adding a Velvet Boost to your pedal configuration.
