The Dumkudo ($310 direct) is simply a higher-gain version of the
Zenkudo (see page 95) designed to work better with single-coil
pickups. I like the extremely high-gain tones that you can get from
this pedal when using humbucking or active pickups. Fans of the highest-
gain Dumble tones—as in the classic slide playing of Lowell
George and David Lindley with their ’70s-era Dumbles—might prefer
the Dumkudo, whereas the Zenkudo might be a better choice
for those preferring subtle, more controlled tones. Again, the three
modes produce quite different sounds and sonic behaviors. The
green mode reminds me of the ’70s Dumbles, while the blue mode
is more in the ’80s Dumble vein, and the red mode is both Marshall-y and Dumble-y at the same time.
KUDOS Quiet. Terrific aggressive tones with higher-output
pickups. Excellent modern classic tones with single-coil
CONCERNS Pricey. Low contrast between control labels and
abalone background can make it difficult to read the
controls on stage.
