Hi y'all ! yesterday i recieved my airbrake through ProGuitar in Germany... now i only hear much difference in volume between settings 0 and 3 - 4 and bedroom (offcourse) the settings 1 and 2 don't do much...... !? is this normal ??
There is about -1.8dB per step and that first step seems slighter as your mind and ears can play a few tricks on you. If you have an amp mic'd and going into a console with a test tone you can see the VU levels change.
There is actually about the same level of drop but perhaps it is only when you get down to step three that you notice a big difference. In live work you see that going from 0 to 1 when the sound people are right on the edge of complaining usually will do the trick and make everybody happy.
In any case, you can open the unit up and actually change the level of the steps via the resistor strapping.
On a side note .... welcome to the forum. Belgium .... pretty darn great chocolate there!
thanks for the info Myles ! i use the airbrake with my Route 66 and a Marshall 4x12 vintage 30 cabinet.... do you have any info regarding sound differ between a Marshall 4x12 cab and the Z-best cabinet ?
On the Marshall 4X12/Z best comparison; I have a Marshall 4x12 Classic slant with the greenbacks and a z best with (1) vintage 30 & (1) G-12-H.
I have run both with the following Z heads; Route 66, Maz Jr NR and Ghia and for me the Z is better, more bottom w/o question, and a smaller package to huff in/out...but not much lighter !! The Z-best is a heavy mutha for my 43 years !!
I let the Z best sit and usually pack my Z 1X12 cab and Ghia, plenty for the clubs I play.

roscoenyc: Almost every piece of gear I have except for my tuner has at least one knob. Those are for adjusting. PSA for the "too much bass" crowd.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
