Palmer (reactive load) sounds good,lasts forever
This is on my list of things to buy. I like that it can both lower AND raise the volume of whatever amp you’re using.
For instance, my Fender Deluxe is way too loud for home use but might not be loud enough for gigging. The Fryette PS2 seems like the perfect solution for both situations...
Technically the Captor X is an attenuator but the cab sim is what I use it for, either to studio monitors or headphones. I thought it might be overkill when I bought it but it has become essential to being able to play at home with tube amps.
I did not read the four pages but since I'm here...if you want a really good attenuator be prepared to pay in the $400-500 range at a minimum.
This is my experience as well. To take it a step further, the best sounding attenuators are the ones that re-amp, like the Boss TAE or the Fryette Power Station. Those are over $1K. If you include the price of your tube amp it’s a pretty substantial investment.
Alternatives would be a modeling amp, a clean solid state amp with pedals, or something like the Two Notes CAB M+ with pedals.
