So, by your rationale, if someone started selling this exact attenuator using the exact same components, enclosures, and paint scheme excluding the Dr Z logo, for say, $90 instead of $150-170, the Brake lite still wouldn't be "overpriced"? Seems to me you're all suckered into paying a pretty penny for that little "Z" logo.
Oh, and don't worry about your gear, it's not "overpriced", just expensive, you can always afford to buy more.
If you could buy the exact same attenuator with the same after-care, warranty, etc. for half price, and the manufacturer had any marketing savvy, then I think this discussion would be moot because Dr. Z. wouldn't be able to sell his Brake Lite at the current price. In that case, I would buy the knock-off. I bought the Brakelite for 3 reasons (1) small, (2) inexpensive compared to other attenuators on the market (3) installed for me at the factory before they shipped the amp to the store I bought it from (I would be uncomfortable doing it myself). I measured those factors against the price and decided it was a good deal for me.
I also don't think people buy the Z Brakelite for the "brand" because it gets installed where nobody can see it. Hard to show off your purchase when it's hidden inside your cabinet.
Not sure why the need for sarcasm about my gear or my ability to afford it (which comes from working very hard so I have no guilt about it). I guess you're entitled to post whatever comments you want but as others have said, this is a rather polite forum (which makes it great IMHO) so you may want to take it down a notch.
Really? You're not competant enough to unplug a cable and plug into another spot?
Thanks to everybody here. Dr Z just lost a potential long term customer
