SOLD- RDA (Rob Dix Amplification) Dualist - hand wired Dumble style head

What's Hot

edited September 27 in Amps £
RDA Dualists are a bit of a best kept secret. Fabulous take on a Dumble style amp. It's a dual channel affair - clean / drive with boost and fat switches ( clean / drive and boost are footswitchable ), treble boost, excellent effects loop, full fat reverb tank

This has been freshly serviced with a pair of new Sovtek 6L6 power tubes and delivers around 40w. Being cathode biased any matched pair of 6L6 / EL34 / KT66 can be installed without the need to re-bias. Originally built to take 4x6V6 it would need a tech to make the necessary adjustments for that configuration. Rob did the adjustments for two 6L6 tubes and I believe the outer pair of sockets are now disconnected.

Quality build, leather handle and very good condition,

New these are now around £1350 / 1400 so I'm looking for £800 £750 collected but will also consider part way meet dependant on location. I'm in North Lincolnshire.

This was originally built for Alex Hunter of these parts and there are a few owners on here who would vouch for how good these amps are....put it this way my Redplate went when I got this :-)

    simply because I'm trimming back and unlikely to ever gig again, if I do I would just grab a small Princeton style amp as I simply can't contemplate taking out a head and cab any more....but if anyone is intrigued here's a link to Alex demoing the amp when he originally owned it

    I’d have bought it back but I got another in the interim:

    It’s worth saying that you could also get another faceplate from Rob so that it doesn’t have my name on :-)

    I bought and RDA Duellist from a fellow fretboarder and can confirm that they are brilliant.

    I wonder how it would sound clean. All I can hear is a gooey-swamp-reverb sound.
