Prolly a dumb question but..

Can an attenuator be used on a combo amp, as all of the examples I see are "Plug it between your head and your cabinet"

well almost all tube combos are just a head with a speaker mounted beneath it. so all you'd do is unplug the speaker jack from the back of the amp head...plug it in the att. then plug the att. into the head.

same as with a head and cab. look on the back of your amp and you'll see what i mean...it'll be a 1/4 inch cable coming up from your speakers plugging into the output jack on your amp.

Yup, you can do it, what he said basically.

What amp do you want to use with an attenuator?

And you need to match the impedence too.

Maybe we could help with what you're looking for?
What sounds do you want/price range etc?

And you might not even need an attenuator.
