Are there any Attenuator's out there aside from the one from THD? That thing is really expensive and I want to see is there are any other options.

Schecter C-1 BlackJack
Peavey 5150 II
Ibanez 25W "Tone Blaster"
Fender Starcaster (Not the vintage kind, the Wal-Mart Value kit kind"

If Dimebag22 was a pie, I would cover him with whipped cream and eat his insides...

I don't mean to hijack or anything, just a quick question.

I was looking at the Weber site, and it says that you should use an attenuator that is a greater number of watts than the amp you're using right? It says that if I have a 50 watt amp, then I'd need a 100 watt attenuator. I was just wondering how all that works, if anybody knows.

if your amp is 30 watts, how much would you need? would 50 be good?

I have a Peavey 5150 II. I think it is 120 Watts but I am not sure. So would I be looking to get a 150 watt attenuator?

That?

for a blues Jr. and a TS-9, would 25watt minimass be enough?

i guess. Me too i have a 6505 and its way too much that i cant even play at my house. Im still using my old crate head.

I was checking https://taweber.powweb.com/weber/mdump.htm . Its 200w and $75 cheaper than urs.

thats cuz it has a power resistor instead of a speaker motor or sumtin.

it says power resistors suck tone a lot. Ted E-mailed me recommending me speaker motor ones.

Ideally, you'd want a 200 watt. Looks like they haven't completed it yet. Email Ted, see what he recommends...
You coudl also get the MegaDump 200.

Yeah, that would be cool. I'd upgrade to a 50, though, for the extra 25, in case you ever got something with more wattage, like an AC30 or a Peavey Classic 30, or something. That's just me, though. I bought a 100 watt one. O.O

Correct. Resistor based ones suck off more tone as you attenuate, as compared to speaker motor based ones.

^This seems to be turning into a "If I have this amp, then what size attenuator would I need?" thread. Haha

Sorry if I hijacked it a little threadstarter. However, the Weber speaker motor attenuators look awesome.

I would ask around a little more, specifically about the 5150 and any attenuators. From what I've been told, the 5150 doesn't mix well with attentuators. Nothing I've experienced personally, but I've talked to a couple owners that said they didn't like how it changed their tone. I would talk to someone that's actually used the Weber and the 5150 together before you spend the loot.

Maybe someone could post in this thread with some experience with it?
