hey all,
i was thinking if it would be possible to use a volume pedal as an attenuator, ie.crank up everything on my amp and keep the volume low through the volume pedal.

do u think i would be able to take full advantage of the Vox VT30 sound like that or would it be crap?

and if so, what's the best volume pedal out there?

cheers

No, because all you're doing is throttling the signal that goes into the amp in the first place.

The VT30 is not a tube amp and has a built in attentuator.

Damn, 2005'ers aren't that intelligent as everyone here think.

you dont need to crank it to get that great tube tone as it has a SS power amp. And it has power level control anyways.

i know that the VT30 has a built in attenuator because i have this amp. but when i use the attenuator at lower volume it still loses some feel.

but thx for clarifying that i can not use the volume pedal as an attenuator.

And also you don't need an attentuator because you don't have a tube amp.

You are going to lose the feel no matter what you do. That's the problem with low volume.

LOL, 311 I had too many beers when I posted that last night. I listened to the clips this morning and my playing sucked so I deleted the post. I left the clips on my profile for a while but didn't want to draw attention to it. Also I noticed that the clips didn't sound the same as I was hearing them. So I'm going to redo the Muff demo and adjust the settings so the recording sounds closer to what I am hearing.

Funny how alcohol makes you think you sound better than you do.

Trust me, I know.

Well, I didn't even open the thread when I saw it I was just going to circle back and give you a gratz. Make sure you do one when you get it sorted.


I use a volume pedal in my effects loop and set in like 9/10 but it is no attenuater as mentioned.
