I recently got a Mesa Stiletto Ace 50w combo amp and I need something that will let me get a cranked overdrive at a much lower volume than the Stiletto has, and I'm looking into buying a power attenuator to fix my problem. I've heard the THD Hot Plate works well, but i've also heard that it can suck your tone. Anyone own the thing and care to help? Or anybody own another good attenuator?
i believe all attenuators suck tone, but some less than others. look into weber attenuators. i hear they are really good and not as expensive as the hotplate.
