I've recently bought a low watt amp, a cornford carrera which is between 5-8 watts depending on tubes used/selected.
Atm i only play it in the flat. It sounds pretty good at low volumes but when i take it to my music teachers house and turn it up a bit more it sounds great.
Im looking for a solution to be able to turn it up from 10am master vol to 12noon + (it onlyhas a master)
I was looking into attenuators and came across this brake like which i could get low levels of attenuation and without loss of sound quality. I know the air brake has more features but im not sure which is better for my needs. The brake lite is much cheaper and less obtrusive as its internal.
I use my brake lite with a champ (4-6 watts) and a musicmaster bass (12 watts) fairly often with great results. The resistance does not appear to discriminate against lower wattage. The original circuitry for the brake lite was used in the 5 watt Mini Z if I recall.
