I''ve been using a Weber 50 watt Minimass with my Maz jr lately. I've had it for a couple of years but didn't like the tone until I switched to an open back cabinet with a Celestion Gold. Now it sounds pretty good but I am wondering if the Brake Lite might be better and save one more step of stage setup. Does anyone have experience comparing the Brake Lite to the Minimass?

The brake lite sounds great to me! It doesn't affect the tone like the webber. Granted it doesn't take the volume down as much... But I definitely prefer the brake lite. The webber sounds bad to me even on it's max volume setting. The brake like settings 1-3 seem completely usable. Setting 4 is a little shabby but is still better than the webber IMHO.
Update: I've gotten the opportunity to play several gigs with the Brake Lite installed and in my opinion the tone with the Brake Lite is much better than with the Minimass. The Minimass is ok, but the Brake Lite is transparent and dynamic. I'm quite happy that I finally broke down and bought it.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
