You can just keep the volume low...SS amps keep their tone at low volumes.

Well if you have a spare pedal, let's say, distortion
Turn gain to like 1 or .05
Then set volume to lower, there you go, but you lose some tone.
Or get a compressor

Or use the volume knob on your guitar

Adjusting the volume know would kill the tone, by that i mean if you're in full gain/overdrive/distortion, lowering the volume through the volume knob will not preserve the original cranked up tone, the distortion would be lower and could even be none.

i dont think he wants a volume pedal. i think he's asking about keeping the desired tone at lower levels.
and like said that's not an issue with solid state amps.

but if i was to get a vol pedal it would be an EB.

What about a Seymour Duncan SFX-1 (Pickup Booster)?

I've never really tried one out, but mabey you could use it to get a boost in signal volume, thus maintaining your overdrive, but at a lower volume?

Solid states sound terrible at high volumes. You only need an attenuator with tube amps.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
