    This is a power attnuateur transistors that can eat a power of 100W at 10 ohm (which allows it to be used as 8 or 16 ohm).

    The case does a good job is a slight compression but nothing alarming is therefore transparent RAS

    I can push a little more and suddenly my amp to do a little more crunch and bring out the lamps without the cops ass, for me it is a must buy, must also be open after the volume if the HP rendering is feeble but overall it is a very useful device in an apartment but limited to 30W max in my opinion, the more you push the more volume must be mitigated, should come to find the right balance between the power of the amp and speaker output ... and of course the more you push the amp more lamps wear ... I will replace the Koch (€ 227) with midi output for recording if there is also the SPL Reducer (319 €) but these products are very expensive and without comparison with the VHM 150 €

    Purchased by mail order there is a little over 15 days, powerbrake, as its name suggests, aims to reduce the output volume of the amp, in order not to explode the ears and take advantage of the power tubes at high volume.

    Do not be frightened by the appearance of gear: a tin box with a slider (to reduce the volume of 100 to 0%), a bypass switch, an input and an output jack (rated at typex indications!) is all (except precision "assembled in Mexico").

    It can be comes from my amp, not bad performance at low volumes, but I was fairly disappointed when I tried this on my channel powerbrake saturated. I find the sound too compressed, too "tight".
    For cons, the clean channel with gain and half a TS9, then there is the Panard. The sound is great, compressed of course, because the lamps are more requested, but much smaller than the lead channel. It is clear on this channel, with the addition of an overdrive, the purchase of this powerbrake is perfectly justified to me. So, I sold my disto no longer needed
    But again, I repeat, I think the report should be different depending on the type of amp

    I just said above

    So this is a power attenuator, very useful when playing a tube amp in an apartment ...
    The least we can say is that it's rustic! It comes in the form of a simple metal box with a big knob on over a switch. Level connectivity is input / output jack 6.35mm and that's it. There's no need more anyway). It looks very strong anyway.
    I think it comes in different powers, the choice depending on when the power of your amp.

    As a result, the configuration is very simple. Simply connect to the amp (be careful to use speaker cables) and then set the desired volume with the slider. That's it, no need to take the lead with other settings.

    As a guide, bah just a sheet explaining how to connect to the amp powerbrake.

    I use this amp with my powerbrake Sunn T50C (volume 1 was already far too high ...).
    I am extremely happy, I can turn up the volume in clean the amp to get a good crunch sound (no master volume on the amp) and saturated bah I can put the gain at the bottom and volume of the amp without breaking the ears of everyone (and myself at the same time lol).
    There may be just a tad more compression, but frankly I've always a lot of momentum, either plain or in full.
    In short, the sound is excellent, although it greatly reduces the original volume.
    You still have to clarify I think it may depend heavily on your amp. That's why I advise people on the Paris region to try the store front.

    I use it for a year and a half now, and I'm still happy Auconie problem for now.
    What I like most is the simple side, I plug in and that's it.
    I bought it because when I received my Sunn, I thought the windows were broken. So I went to see in this store Valve House Music with my amp to see if there was not a problem on it, and there he told me that in fact it was normal bah lol. The guy made me try his powerbrake, hop and I bought it.
    I have not tried others before, it must be said that Marshall, THD and company are much more expensive (€ 140 for the VHM) and clearly not his best side.
    I think the quality / price excellent and I do it again this election if necessary.
    In addition, the guys are really nice, when I was there I stayed a good hour just to talk with them ... amp

    This is a power attenuator transistor that can swallow 100w. The metal case is strong and seems able to support a tour. Experiment, it supports them in fact. Soon four years after purchase, it is still running.

    I notice an inscription "assembled in mexico" ... weird. An entry from the amp, output in the cabinet, a third that can connect online, but I never use this function.

    The manual comes down to a sheet that explains what you can easily see for yourself.

    The real questions that you ask you are not detailed, and I therefore responds to you. The amperage of this attenuator is 10 ohm. Do not ask me why, but this allows it to be used both on a couple cabinet / 8 ohm amp than 16 ohm…

    The manual comes down to a sheet that explains what you can easily see for yourself.

    The real questions that you ask you are not detailed, and I therefore responds to you. The amperage of this attenuator is 10 ohm. Do not ask me why, but this allows it to be used both on a couple cabinet / 8 ohm amp than 16 ohm. This point bothered me to marshals and other THD. Be careful (I see some future) it is not a power transformer, if you feed your 8 ohm output by, it will return to your entry into the cab 8 ohm. This makes sense, unless you're a noob and it's always nice to note.

    [6] standard and simple but with the small addition to the multi-impedance. But a little disappointing because only one output to the cabs.

    The case is simply this. Input and output to go out of his head toward the speaker.

    A wheel for the determination of the level of mitigation.

    The use is standard. However, I must indicate that much cash the major powers and little heat, even in prolonged use. However, red card for design. The fins directly affect the soil, because they are a bit beyond the case. If you have carpet, you will have to gaffer.

    Similarly, another big problem. Is that the more you reduce, more lower its impedance. The post of another forumeur made me pay attention. Indeed, without pushing my amp unreasonably. Tubes blackened quickly. I tend to put the attenuator to almost the bottom and up, reasonably, the master volume. I take this opportunity to point out that, on a 30w amp and do not mount the knob mitigation donf almost immediately excluded from the game volume bedroom. "In short, following the opinion left lower j 'I then reduced the median values ​​mitigation (improving transparency at the same time), and was able to keep the following set of tubes significantly longer (equal volumes). However, the volume becomes very large and ruled out any use other than "locally or in concert".

    [5] is also easy to grip. All its direct competitors offering more or less the same factors, but it is far from big names like that.

    It allows you to make the most of his tube amplifier without twisting the ears.

    The small inflection in the treble is forgivable, I also denoted a small muddy side in the medium as a whole, but only after re-re-re-re-re-re-(4892x) and listening by plugging in the gear killing (the nouveaumien)! The muddy side tends to increase over the selected mitigation is important. However, it is impossible to eat all the 100w spewed by my head, but it's still not very attenuated and can not play flat. But the attenuation of a 100w can fall below the threshold of pain and give the guitar its true place. Ideally, however, a connection to a 30W or less, one is left to grow over-and under it is pushed, the less the little muddy side. Practice Tip for the studio.

    [7] Nothing amazing in its specificity, its ok.

    A good quality product, which is sadly misdirected.

    Many problems in order to force me strongly discouraged. <strong>[1]</strong> you will understand why going to read on the forum attached

    <strong>Note [5] is the average home.</strong> My previous opinion lacked objectivity and was written under the influence of nervousness, this opinion is more objective and better guide the consumer.

    EDIT: ATTENTION! The mail alert below is very serious. I actually found a rapid darkening of my tubes when I was pushing at an end of output 80hm. After changing and taking into account what was said below, the wear of the tubes is slower and darkening is normal in duration.

    The configuration is so we can not simple.Il just have to adjust the rate of attenuation as a function of the tolerance of neighbors. Personally in the practical solution to the maximum (95%) with the volume of the Amli at 4 / 10 (30W all-tube), the volume is comparable to that obtained with a multi-effects connected to a PC with speakers low end ( only the volume of course !!!).

    RMQ: My HP is 16 ohms but the seller told me that for small power (30W in this case) that the case be made for HP 8 Ohms did not matter.

    I use it on an Orange Rocker 30 in an apartment in the city center (the neighbors across anything !!!).
    The grain of the amplifier and the heat lamps are very well preserved but most importantly, I can finally have a saturation worthy of the name (which appears to the quarter of the volume which is in normal use already too high) without me ears to bleed.
    however, results in attenuation of high frequencies down which involves changing settings in relation to use in rehearsal '(not too complicated anyway ...). But the sound this does not mean gradient rendering and found particularly surprising.

    I use it for a few days and I confess that I am more than satisfied.
    The price is reasonable, although its features are quite limited, but somehow it is the cheapest on the market (in any case I have not found better) and then I am parrait be essential to have good lighting in the apartment.
    I went to look directly at the shop in Pigalle VHM and I want to say that the reception is particularly good. The store suggested I try it for a week, leaving a security deposit without my request.

    Parade: Never exceed one quarter of the race and then take exit 8 ohm of the amp, with the risk that the power loss (due to the fact that the 8 ohm output also corresponds to a voltage divider mounting!) not change too much the nature of sound. But this is by far the least risky
