Y'all talk to me about attenuators. I've been researching them a bit lately, and, as with everything on the world wide interwebs, depending on who's talking depends on what kind of contradictory information I'm seeing. Any of you actually use an attenuator in your home setup? I have been looking at the Dr Z Airbrake thinking that maybe it'd let me really drive the amp a bit without making the neighbors mad. But, from some of what I'm reading, an attenuator won't really cut the volume that much, and it will burn your tubes up so you're having to constantly replace them. Some are saying an attenuator will bring a 15w tube amp down to a neighbor-friendly level, while others are saying that it will only cut certain frequencies, so the neighbors will still hate you, and it will totally kill the tone. I thought that it would tame an amp a bit, give you that really good, driven sound, and let you do it without having to use earplugs. Anybody actually using one and, if so, (1)which one, (2)how are you using it, (3)is it doing what you want it to do, and (4)are they worth the money? I don't have delusions of grandeur like sticking it on a 100w amp and expecting it to make that usable at home, but I have in mind putting it on my 1w and 15w amps and being able to drive those a bit instead of just cracking them open.
