    My wife decided my amp was too loud, even on the 2W setting (Mesa Cali Tweed) so I justified an attenuator to make her happy - solid justification.

    It works great as one would expect from Dr Z. The amp sounds just as good as un-attenuated, except for the lowest setting where it gets a little thin - noticeable but not completely anemic. Overall very pleased with it. Some very useable tones at a palatable level for home.

    This is the one that is designed to sit on top, and I think I rather like it that way. You can't see it in the original picture, but it is sitting next to the AD-9 I keep in the effects loop. They both sit on my "surfboard" stand I keep on top of the amp - seems to go well with the "California Tweed" theme...

    The "surfboard" is a cheese tray or serving platter of some sort - solid marble - serves a good purpose here after wife decided she had no use for it. I added bigger feet to it so it would clear the amp handle...
