    Picked up an Orange Dark Terror earlier in the month. Sweet,but to help tame it to bedroom levels. Picked up a passive attenuator from Stami's Customs. This thing is legit and I thought Ya'll here would love the color!

    Congrats!

    Attenuators can be a real blessing around the house. I bought one for my Fender DRRI, and when I need less volume, I can still get all the goodness.

    It's awesome. Have it set with the attenuator so it's right before breakup, and my OCD pedal gives it just enough to break up. And the switchable output is nice. I leave it at 7 so it needs less volume before breakup.

    Those are nice little amps. I have a Fender SS Princeton 650 that I leave in the studio where I take my lessons. It is so cotton pickin' loud at 1.5, I bought a little attentuator to run in the effects loop. Does the trick. It sounds so much better when I can run the preamp at around 4-5 and still keep the volume at a reasonable level.

    I always thought this model was aimed at the Metal-fraction:confused:?

    Which is why that 7 watt power switch is so great. Let's me keep it at a decent level but still get some great sound. It sounds great.

    Does it have anything like clean headroom, or is it true to its marketing image as a death metal amp?

    Mr Dream
    I just brought home a new 65 Blackface DRRI and with my Detroit Casket and Mystery Brain I have the tone I’ve been hunting.
    I now need to rein in the overall volume
    What are using for attenuation?
    Thank you
    Fred

    Fred, I got a Juice Box attenuator on the Reverb site. It was recommended by someone here, so I took a chance, and I've been very happy with it.
