OVERVIEW

Tube amp attenuation taken to the next logical extreme.

Jet City's 100 watt attenuator is an excellent tool for both live and recording. Amp inputs at 4-, 8-, and 16-ohms makes Jettenuator more versatile than other attenuators. The continuous attenuation control lets you set the volume right where you want it. A line-level output is also included with its own level control. Use this to connect Jettenuator to an external power amplifier, or effects processors in professional applications.

Rounding out the feature set is the MicSim output. This balanced, XLR output simulates a microphone in front of a speaker, so you can attenuate your amp and send a great-sounding feed to the house, or your recording mixer. It’s like a direct box for your cranked-up tube amp.

FEATURES
  • Multiple impedances
  • Mic simulator
  • Line level out

Versatile and precise, this will change the way you feel about attenuation devices.

      Comments about Jet City Amplification Jettenuator Amp Power Attenuator:

      Picked up on SDOTD. For the price it was worth it just as a load box. So how does it function as an attenuator? I immediately noticed a change in tone in the form of lost high end but I fully expected some alteration. After all you're taking the output from the amp, sending it to a power resistor, turning most the power into heat and sending the runoff to the speaker. What do you expect? It could have had some bells and whistles to try and restore the tone but as long as it's a passive device you can't add/boost anything such as high end, the only option is to filter/cut out some the of low for a perceived brighter signal. I'm fine with the way it is.

      My initial judgment was based on standing next to the amp which leaves too much room for perception to play tricks so I set up a mic and dottled around with it. After going back and listening to the recording I have to say I got some nice crunch that you'd think was captured at window rattling volume. And I noticed I couldn't quite get the same sparkle when not using the attenuator with the amp's volume set lower which is probably the cost of admission for using any attenuator.

      If you're willing to accept the above conditions I thinks you'll be happy with the Jettenuator.

        Comments about Jet City Amplification Jettenuator Amp Power Attenuator:

        This is the perfect attenuator based on size, features, and price. I bought it because of that & figuring how bad could it sound. Well, it sounds really bad and completely removes the high end sparkle from every amp I tried it with. In fact more-so than ANY modern attenuator I have tried. It does this with various amps. Best sounding for me is the Rivera Rockcrusher, but that is expensive. The Webers with the speaker coils as the attenuator are second to the Rivera. Those are priced more like the Jettenuator. The Jettenuator is better made than the Webers but at least the Webers sound pretty good.
