ok i checked out their website, but i didn't read anywhere HOW MUCH attenuation it gives. for a 50w tube for instance.
#2
quite a bit from what ive seen, ive seen them used to bring 100 watt tube amps down to a pretty low practice volume.

I know attenuators make a tube amp sound better at low volumes but can you like turn decide how much quieter they make your amp?

Stock Gibson Pickups from a 2005 V, I think they're a 498T and 500T set FS/FT
Duncan Distortion (regular spaced) FS

Looking for: an acoustic, recording gear, or $

settings of -0dB, -4dB, -8dB, -12dB, and -16dB by potentiometer all the way to completely attenuated. It should handle up to 180W amps.

Make your own, its sh*t loads cheaper, and easy. I made one today. Go to http://www.18watt.com/index.php and search the forums for attenuators.

This is the 1 i made today.



If you would rather buy one go with the weber attenuators.

^I've built one of those, the Weber one I have sounds nicer though.

That is a good one to just hack together though.

Pink Queen, is it your weber $160 worth of better?

darkwasp, where does that go in your setup? That unit goes in between your amp's speaker output and cab input, or is that one of those volume boxes that goes in the loop? How does it dissipate the heat if it handles all the power from the head?

edit: nvm, I see it's labeled 8 ohm. So how much power can it handle?

One of those doesn't cost more than 5 bucks to build.
And it shouldn't blow it up.

The Weber is great. I have a Mini-Mass, only 100 bucks.

Goes between amp and speaker, rated to 60W and can handle any heat produced.
