I've had mine in my Maz Jr for a while now, and it is SO convenient having that thing in there. When I play at home, the wife gets annoyed when stuff starts falling off the walls upstairs, but with the Brake Lite in there, I just twist a couple clicks in and it's perfect for the studio. Then when I take the amp out for a gig, I can twist it right back up to thru, or leave it one click down if it's a quiet one. Totally transparent in all those modes.
I got mine yesterday and had it installed in like 5 minutes tops. What a great devise I am loving it. No doubt set at 3 the Maz Jr sounds perfect. What really impresses me the most is the Brake Light doesn't suck tone like most attenuators do. It was a worth wild investment for me and my ears are also benefiting from this purchase. Highly recommended.

Picked mine up this morning. Wow, what a great innovation! I can say that this is going to totally change the way I use my Maz Jr. Even on level 4 I can't play with both volumes dimed (still too loud for my place) but it will be awesome for band rehearsals and gigs. Right now, I'm using a setting of: Volume dimed, T 11:00, M 11:00, B 3:00, MV 10:00, and Cut at 9:00. On level 4 I still get a real nice warm, full tone with my guitar volume rolled-off just a bit and then a nice lead tone when I max the guitar vol. Then I kick on my Keely TS-9 if I want to jump into the stratosphere.
I'll definitely be selling these (convincing fellow guitarists, not actually selling MINE) to all my buddies. Best $180 I've ever spent (ontop of the $1600 on the maz ;-)

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.
