The Top 7 Power Attenuators

The Top 7 Power Attenuators

Tube amp fanatics may know this problem all too well: the gloriously richer sounds of an amp when cranked to its limits. Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to do so. Setting the volume at 11, might not always go well with your neighbors or your band mates for that matter, plus it can be quite detrimental to your ears.

Luckily, there are power attenuators to the rescue. This is placed between the amp and the speaker, which allows you to play at a reduced volume while keeping the power amp sound. With several models in the market we decided to present some of them here, in the following video.

Lawrence started playing the electric guitar because of his passion for rock music. Back in the day he played in a metal band, but now plays more for himself.
