Which would you recommend for the GT? I was leaning toward the Lite because of the price (w/ Bailsman's Hi-Tech stand alone mod ;D). Doc says the Lites are good for up to 45 watts, however, I was worried about the conservative rating on the GT(rated at 38, but others say it's actually higher). And in reading the Brake Lite threads, some are saying the Lite doesn't provide enough attenuation for home use. I'm confident the Lite will be good when I'm playing out, but at home, I'm not so sure...
What do you think?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I use my GT with the airbrake. At home and in the practice room I have to use the bedroom level. On smaller stages I use the bedroom level too but wider open. On click 4 the GT is loud. It´s a loud beast with a fantastic sound. If you use the GT at home I recommend the airbrake.
Let us know your experience with the GT and airbrake. Hope you like it.
The Air Brake is an amazing piece of equipment! The GT would practically be unusable at home w/out it. The Bedroom level, max attenuation, does alter the sound in a less than desirable way. But come on,... how else are you going to tame this beast!? And it's really not that bad. It sucks a little tone (adjust for it) and adds some fizzy buzz to the distortion.
On 1-4, however, it pretty much sounds as it does w/out it. This thing is a Godsend! ;D
I'm really glad I got the Air Brake over the Brake Lite for this amp. 1-4 isn't enough attenuation for the GT to use in the home. Level 4 attenuation is still quite loud (windows, pictures, and China rattling... I love it! ;D ).

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
