Anybody ever tweaked the settings on The Doc’s brakes? I haven’t done it for a few years, but I need to brake a little harder, bring them down to a lower volume for my old and defective ears for home use on a variety of amps. I don’t want to wear hearing protection just to rock at home. I use the Doc’s brake lites on a number of amps - old tweed Fenders and old Voxes (works great!) - as well as on my Z amps! Anybody have any experience/caveats in shifting the settings around on these resistors? How do you tell which direction is the right way to move? Is there any danger of damage to the amp in shifting these to higher resistance (more braking)? Inquiring minds want to know!
Any insight will be appreciated.

Right now, mostly a Tele or Tom Anderson through a Wreck Jr. Somewhere in Florida with Hammerhead Lincoln (umm .... not really, cause I don’t actually have a band of my own). Hear us on Spotify or iTunes! Also check out Elliott James’ albums “Do the Freddo” and “Have Much Energy”. You’ll hear a variety of vintage guitars, amps, and Z’s!

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."
