Hi all! Firstly, please bear with me - I am fairly new to tube amps. I have a Fender PRRI. I love how it sounds when it starts to break up, but my family and neighbors would (understandably) never put up with that. (I measured 106 dB when it was sounding really sweet the other day.) I have ordered a 50W MiniMASS attenuator from Weber in order to be able to run it at edge of breakup as the Gods of Rock and Blues intended. However, the PR does not have an effects loop. I am concerned that some of my modulation- and time-based effects might sound weird due to the overdrive?? Can you offer any guidance - do I need to be concerned? At the moment, this is just a practice amp run at reasonable indoor volumes. Bonus question: am I wasting my time and money with this attenuator? Should I just run a nice overdrive pedal (I have a Tumnus Deluxe which is quite tasty) and live with preamp overdrive only like a normal person??
