So after all the advice I managed to get from my earlier thread
on attenuators, I have got mine!
I Love It. It doesn't colour my tone at all and is almost like it isn't there.
Notice how I said almost? Now it does everything it is supposed to do. There are just some things that are side effects of any, yes any, attenuator.
The first is Speaker response, when on the highest setting (most attenuated) you do feel that the amp doesn't react to your playing technique as much, but I knew this would happen and will very rarely use this setting.
The other is how boost pedals work with the attenuator. On the higher two settings (3 & 4) they definitely add crunch and sustain and all the other malarkey, but because of the attenuator they don't give you the dynamic response that your amp would normally have. Put simply, in my opinion of course, they don't add volume they add to the sound and tone.
As with anything as personal as our individual rigs, Your mileage may vary.
Thanks to all of you who offered help and guidance as to which one to get, and to those who asked questions I didn't even know I had!
And now for the photo! Its not very interesting but I thought... why not!
