In this excellent video by Marko Karhu he demonstrates how close the Mad Professor Simble pedal into various Fender and Marshall amps sound compared to a Dumble Overdrive Special which would set you back approximately $23,000 more than the Mad Professor Simble and a decent modern Fender or Marshall Amplifier. I’ve always been a big fan of Mad Professor pedals, I think they always sound very amp-like, especially their low gain offerings such as the Sweet Honey Overdrive and with the Simble they really have captured that Dumble vibe perfectly. Sure there are differences when you listen to the track above but like I said it is considerably cheaper and will get you very close.
