The Vertex Steel String Clean Drive was voiced after the legendary Dumble Steel String Singer, apparently, the reference unit they had was serial #1.
It features just three controls – Gain, Filter (tone) and Volume. It sounds killer with lap-steel guitar. Released in 2020, the MkII version adds a toggle for Jazz and Rock voicing, just like the original Dumble amps.
