Son just asked about one from France on a bad phone link in a car with 13 other French people who sounded pissed so all I got was "Doobie, amp, valve".
A Google shows it might be collectable?
Alternatively he coulda been saying he bought a valve amp while stonned
No, HE was quite sober but it was hard to hear because of the rest.
Good grief IC! Those are an assault to the senses and good taste! I was rather hoping someone knew if they sounded ok, were reliable and what second hand stuff was worth? Guess I shall have to wait for a model number from him. Don't hold yer breaths chaps!
I think I’ve also seen the name on a couple of old 1970s or possibly early-80s Japanese ‘Boogie style’ amps, but as far as I know those were all solid-state. It’s not impossible some were valve, I don’t know - the most common Boogie copy that is is the ‘Mesia’ by Zoom-Aidean... I’ve never been able to find out if they’re related to the modern Zoom company, but it wouldn’t surprise me!
Ah! So you think the name might be a form of "passing off" in the hope that people think of Boogie? Never occurred to me!
BTW. When I posted a question about loopers* I got reminder emails as you helpful peeps chirped in. Why am I not getting similar updates about Doobie?
*jam Man coming TODAY!
