Have a friend help you out by switching it in and out without you knowing which is which. You may be perceiving something that isn't there, which is very common when it comes to attenuators. On the other hand, please describe your speaker cables. They just might be changing your sound some, depending on what they are.

I messed with the Brake Lite some more and I'm really liking it with the Jaz. It sounds better than the MV on the amp. I shouldn't need to go much lower than two clicks. The extra clicks should come in handy on some of the low volume casino gigs. Also being able to play a little lower on the gig should help with ear fatigue :-)

Twangstang, I think that if you go below two clicks on the BL you will start to lose a little bit of tone...not from the BL changing it, necessarily, but from your speakers having a super low SPL. They arent getting to work like they would be with no attenuation. At least thats how it is when my rig. Unfortunately for those who do a video demo of the BL, its a hard thing to capture with all the video compressions that occur when posting a video online.

I don't notice any change in tone on any of the BLSA settings. Using it with a Wreck. With the Wreck at 1-2 oclock on the vol it's cranking out pure sweetness. The BLSA helps make that vol setting much more usable in most indoor situations. But even with the BLSA on 4 it sounds great...just not so loud. My perception...yours may vary.

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.
Jul 10, 2020 12:56:49 GMT -7
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.
