Wow! Now I know what kind of miracles a good power attenuator/power soak can do! The Beckmann Broms (handmade in Malmoe, Sweden) handles small amps (I have a new Fender '57 Custom Deluxe) excellent! Now I can play with my amp maxed out without my neighbors calling the Police. And the clubs will be so satisfied that I can turn down the volume without loosing the tone.
