Seems pretty straightforward to me, looks to have in/out clearly marked and the knob for attenuation should be self explanatory, just slap that sucker in between the amp and speakers and you are good to go.

"..you need a series effects loop for this device, it does not go between amp and speaker.."

So just stick it in the effects loop. Turn up the amps volume, and use the volume knob on the attenuator to control how loud you want it.

That's not an attenuator... that's a volume potentiometer in a box.

DO NOT PUT IT BETWEEN YOUR AMP AND CAB.

You just got conned if you thought that was an attenuator.

Definitely do not put it between your amp and speakers. It can be worthless or useful depending on what you want to do. Buying it not knowing what it does means it's likely useless.

If you amp doesn't have a post loop volume control and you want to run a multifx into the fx return then you would put it between the multifx and the return to give you a volume control. If you do have a post loop volume control and the loop is too hot for your pedals then you could put it before pedals in the loop and run the master volume up to compensate.

Also if the volumes control are too touchy when trying to run a low volume you can use it in the loop to help tame some of that.

oops, my bad, they shouldn't call it an attenuator if it is in fact something different.

plug it into the amps effects loop. if your amp is like my hot rod deluxe it will be

preamp out --> in on the box ---> out on the box --> poweramp in

No it's an attenuator. Because attenuator is a generic term that has nothing to do with amps in particular. Just not an attenuator that does what you think it would do.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Yes, connotative vs. denotative definitions! Yay for high school English(though, it's been 20 years!)
