Just got mine and have only had a few minutes (tonight) to fool with it and will have to wait until tomorrow to try more, but I am a little concrned with it so far. I get nothing close to a bedroom level. As was recomended, I cranked up the amp and tried to "quiet it" with the air break, but it didnt seem like it was responding as far as tone and volume. Maybe I'm doing something wrong??? Can anyone give me a little insight before I try again tomorrow? Thanks.
Bedroom level may be a fuzzy concept and attenuation can be more difficult to discern in a room as small as a bedroom. However, if you have it connected correctly and you do not hear a noticeable change in volume, something is not right. You asked for a link to the manual in another thread and I posted same. Have a read and make sure everything is correct and let us know if you see, or hear a change.

Hey thanks ! I guess I paniced.......................(two knobs hmmmmm) I took my Maz jr to practice today, turned the volume and master both most of the way up and used the air break and ................................................................................................ my strat sounded awesome !! Thanks for the help Like many have said, it takes time to really get a feel for the Maz and I think I am begining to see the light................
You can get bedroom level volume with the Airbrake, but not with the volume and master knobs dimed on the amp. Even with the attenuator on bedroom and dialed all the way down, it will still be loud at those settings. Try diming the master and putting the volume at about 10:00 - 12:00 (or vice-versa) with the Airbrake on "Bedroom" and the right knob at about 12:00 - that should get you in the ballpark.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
