This is a great thread. It's nice to see the differentiation of attenuators and re-amping units! While I agree that many of the re-ampers are far and above the best way to handle volume issues from a purely "tonal" aspect, but they can be a little bit less convenient than a simpler, passive attenuator. I've tried almost every passive design since their introduction in the '70s and most absolutely and literally sucked! Of all the current passive attenuators out there, the JohnH design is the least tonally destrucrive that I've seen and used! The liberation of having my amp/rig cranked to to its best, sweet spot and then set it's volume appropriately, while still retaining all my sound is simply amazing!
