it's not a pedal, but an Attenuator


Correct!

I'll hazard a guess.... overdrive?!


Wrong, I picked you because I thought you were being the most patronising, therefore the most fun to mock

this is confusing, makes your amp sound cranked when the tone knob was down? you sure you mean when that when you turn down your treble, it adds cranked volume? and a lot of amps don't have a tone knob, they have have some sort of a 3 band eq or something...

Actually, judging by the TS's description, he was looking for some kind of non-existent attenuator pedal. So we were both wrong. Also, learn to use commas.

Overdrives mimic a overdriven tube amp and the tone you get from doing that. Or you can use one to physically over drive a tube amp by diming out the level..

I find it rather amusing you corrected my language, then proceeded to begin a sentence with 'also'.

I think it more likely that he was looking for an attenuator; as an overdrive isn't designed to give a cranked sound at low volumes. It's designed to push the preamp tubes harder, not the power amp tubes. The only way you can get power amp breakup is by cranking it. The side effect of this - it gets loud. The solution - an attenuator.

Which is perfectly correct. Your teacher might prefer you don't begin sentences with 'also' since you haven't yet mastered commas, but if you happen to read a book one day, you may gain a new perspective.

Yes. In all likelihood he was looking for an attenuator, but he said pedal, so I just took a guess at overdrive, which for some reason you found patronizing.

I misused a comma, so what? It's grammatically incorrect to begin a sentence with a conjunction, thus why I corrected you.

If you agree, why are we having this argument?

Then if you have a problem with me, take it out with me on my profile, not in an unrelated thread.

Well, I don't care that much. I just think you should be nicer.

It's a little hard to be nice when you're on these forums and you see all the misconceptions that have been created, turns you quite bitter. I'm sorry about being a bit of a douche.
