I heard about this in a thread that mentioned that you can order ceriatone amps with VVRs built in and that they act in a manner similar to attenuators. However, I am still at a loss to see exactly what they do. Can anyone explain?

Variable voltage resistors.

Essentially they control the power going to the amp, I think, but it's not the same as an attenuator..

if thats the case, i know that an egnator rebel 20 works exactly like this.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

So what does it do then? Does it affect the volume or tone in any way?

It scales the plate voltages down so it distorts at lower volumes. Basically, it's like having a lower output version of the same amp.

No, it won't sound the same as the fully cranked amp.

No, it doesn't sound the same as an attenuator.

I like the system. Nice solution.

I have a power scale, which works a bit differently but gives you the same results. It works great. It's the closest you can get with cranking your amp and controlling the volume.

The Egnater Rebel doesn't really affect the volume, but the headroom. A real power scale affects the volume A LOT, so uch that at the lowest setting it's quiet.

Ah not a big surprise. I hang out a lot at the 18watt.com where I heard about the VVR and being a sucker for power scaling he VVR is something I often talk about...
