Fryette Power Station PS2

Power Attenuator

  • With built-in 40 W power tubes (6L6 power tubes)

  • Stepless power reduction
  • Effects loop
  • Line In for preamps, laptops, MP3 players etc.
  • Line Out
  • 4/8/16 Ohm separately switchable amp input and loudspeaker output, so that any amplifier and speaker can be matched
  • Reduce or increase the power of small amps
  • Effective sound control for adjusting the sound to a strong reduction
  • Natural playing feel via the reactive load - dynamic feel of the amp is retained
  • Input level range switch is well suited for use with vintage non-master volume amp heads
  • XLR balanced out

"All in One" Ger t

Tobias522, 05.03.2017
After I was a long time looking for a suitable Powersoak for my Marshall top parts, I had after extensive reading of various reviews in the net and partly also tried out the devices, for the TAD Silencer decided. Although all my amps have a master volume, but then again comes a lot more tones, if the power amplifiers are somewhat tickled. Thanks to the passive operation of the TAD without problem to take and connect. Bonusfeature is that I can also play without box in the PA or the DAW (resistive load). So far so good, also a Rivera Rockcrusher I had in the test and the TAD liked by less sound distortion and generally always open sound.

Now it is here to the Fryette go and not around the other devices.
One thing was clear, in Powersoak I was provided with the TAD. But what I missed more and more was a resistive load that allows me to reproduce my amp / box combination as real as possible. What is possible today with Impulse Responses is the absolute madness! Now the resistive load in the TAD already sounds very good, but a reactive load as it is installed in the PS-2, is also not the turn. The sound simply becomes more open and lively. In comparison, I also had the Suhr Reactive Load and the TN Live test. All very good and only marginal differences, which can be adjusted and compensated. So that was the first argument away from the TAD to the Fryette.

Now to the second argument, the Powersoak / Attenuator. Unlike the TAD, the PS-2 does not simply amplify the amp signal, but converts it completely into heat and amplifies the pure line signal with its own 40W tube amplifier!
As an old Marshall El34 user I was somewhat skeptical as 6L6 tubes with a JCM800, Silver Jubilee or JMP would tolerate. Contrary to all doubt, the signal comes unadulterated and quite on the contrary even more voluminously back into the loudspeaker box. Due to the various possibilities, I can combine every guitar, every amp and each box very well and adapt different sound levels (Fletcher-Munson effect).

The third purchase argument and also criterion for me was the FX Loop. Since vintage amplifiers mostly do not have a loop, but I would like live and at home to like effects (delay etc.), this feature comes as called. It is even possible to select whether rack equipment or standard effect pedals (level) are ground. Sound again nothing negative can be detected and although I am already very carefully.

That was my part. Who needs Reamping, thanks to the built-in amplifier also has its fun. Who only plays with preamp (Kemper and Co.), the device can also be used wonderfully as a neutral tube stage.

Looking at all these features and in this regard the price, you can definitely not complain. Sure, no cardboard, but fair for what you get offered.

Game Changer

michabekman, 03.01.2018
I'm speechless! In short: The thing is cool!
Long version. Due to the quite high price in Europe I decided to buy a powerstation because of the equipment. I was a bit skeptical at first if she really is that good. My amp (Vox AC30HW2x) has a post phase inverter master volume and should sound good to its service. The amp also has a switch to put this completely on bypass and the sound gain is immense (of course, the volume). Due to a lot of compromises and then a good rehearsal room setting (master bypass, 15 watts, normal channel and everything else with pedals) I was then satisfied. Then the live gig: Sound Man - Viiiiiiel too loud! Everything for the cat. new attitude, pedals sound and react differently - great frustration !!!
New approach: Fryette Powerstation, Vox fully extend - set the sound without compromise - and butter soft with the volume control of the Power Station set the volume you need. It sounds! And exactly as it should. It really only controls the volume, and with the help of the readjustment options, Presence Depth and the Sound Switches, it sounds the way you would in any volume.
The Einschleifweg makes the thing then round. The amp as such is in saturation, and upstream reverb and delay would then be along. So no topic! The effects stay clean and clean. With a slight booster before the return you have the really perfect solo boost, without any loss of sound.
And the most ingenious on top is the line-out of the sound driven on reactive load, which you then pass on to the soundman via IR. Too loud is history from today!
I actually wondered why I did not pick up the coal earlier. So I could probably have saved so many Amp purchase.
There is nothing to complain about the quality. Built like a tank! :)
