I owned a V1 Unleash and it had a loop. Great piece of kit that I ended up not needing.The only type of "attenuator" that I'd consider these days is a re-amper, like a Fryette Power Station or Bad Cat Unleash. Far better sounding and far more versatile. The Fryette has an effects loop, for instance (not sure about the Bad Cat).
The Unlease V2 isn't a bad price, necessarily. Maybe a bit more than I'm looking to spend, but not outrageous.Bad Cat Unleash
Exactly this...However, the Captor X's attenuator has only 3 settings (2 fixed levels of attenuation): -38dB, -20dB, and 0dB , you cannot dial it down to exactly what you need.
When I used to own the original Captor (which has only -20dB attenuation), the attenuation feature was pretty much useless to me.
Carl’s Speaker Soak on Reverb for about $50.I love the sound of my Deluxe Reverb on full volume, but it's way too loud for most applications. I've never used an attenuator before, but I'm kicking around the idea now. I know all the YouTube flavor of the month guys have the OX, but I'm not looking to spend that kind of cash.
Any suggestions? Looking to keep the tonal characteristics and feel of the amp the same, but just at a comfortable volume.
There you go!Cool! I'm pretty handy with a soldering iron and have built several pedal kits before. I'd be interested in looking into this. Would you mind providing a link to instructions or a schematic if available?
