well it seems that the newest craze is built in attenuator on amps ( Marshall , Mesa, etc.)

my question is even though your overpowering the power section of the
tube amps isn't the the speakers not going to distort the same as if the
the amp was turned up all the way ?

though it is a nice feature for the amp companies to put with there
product now sense attenuators cost £200 or more .

they aren't attenuators at least the the marshall one isn't.

it's a variable voltage control.

and no the speakers won't distort the same way.

neither will the power section really.

No, but in fairness, not everybody turns things up so loud that the speakers distort.

They damn well should.

Dunno why anybody would bother with built-in attenuators unless they're talking about VVR.

Having a standalone unit is so much simpler, since it stays with you when you inevitably get bored with the amp and trade it.

yea , true i guess , but most people i think ( sense im not pro )in the pro realm keep
everything they get because the usually go back to it a few years later or for the songs they wrote , but they can afford it .


were if i sell something I'm usually saying i wish i didn't sell that .

^ Except if you have a standalone unit, you can move it between the 800 amps you have instead of having to have one installed in each, so I'm still not seeing the advantage...

The only thing I've ever regretted selling was my original Fulldrive II, because I ended up paying $30 more for my current one and it doesn't have the mojo white knobs.
