Twelve attenuator positions, -3dB increments, 0 to 30dB attenuation.
Load position for silent recording [or to form a power-tube saturation stage for a 3-stage amp-rig such as Guytron or Rail Rocket].
Presents a speaker-impedance load to the amp, or a resistive load.
Low impedance, transformer-balanced XLR output. Can run XLR Out to one mixer channel and blend with miked cab in another channel.
Can adjust stage volume using attenuator control, with constant XLR level for mixer.
Ground lift switch (to eliminate ground-loop hum).
Top-quality components.Magnetically shielded inductors, precision resistors, and Neutrik/Switchcraft connectors
Inputs: 1/4" unbalanced phone jack for input from tube power amp. 100W max.
Two 1/4" speaker jacks. Output impedance: 4, 8, or 16 ohms; matches input impedance. Selectable 4, 8, or 16 ohms.
Includes a speaker emulator with transformer-isolated balanced output. XLR balanced, line-level, speaker-emulating output (Pin 1: ground, Pin 2: +, Pin 3: -).100 ohms output impedance
Price TBD.Planned available February, 2001.
