Hi Everyone, just bought an Air Brake to use with my current set up, until I can afford that new Route 66. The amp is a 1980 60 watt Mesa MKII that I've owned since new. I put in some Sovtek Kt 66's that were the right bias rating for this amp. The amp sounds absolutely amazing when I can get those 66's running wide open. This is where the Air Brake excels for me. Little or no colouration as far as my ears can tell. I run the preamp at about 5, master dimed, use the rhythm channel only, and run the attenuator at the fourth click. What a great sound!

I"ve actually started using mine again. A regular club we play gets noise complaints from a Hotel next door and we have to watch our volume. I notice when the room is full we can play as loud as we want and the owner never blinks. I've often had my route 66 cranked. But as soon as there is a little space in the room (people going outside for a smoke or a mystery bus tour leaves) we are suddenly too loud without even changing volume. So I just set up the airbrake on two at the beginning of the night, turn it off when the room is full and if it empties a little I just click back one or two, without having to change the amp. Works a treat and no more complaints.

You weren't holding your mouth right! ;D
Sorry I couldn't resist! I saw your username and suddenly thought of a "OLD-SAYING" that my Grandpa used to tell me frequently when we would go fishing and I would complain about not catching as many fish as he did!
My Grandpa would say: Mac You Aren't Holding Your Mouth Right!!
