Rico my Friend, I'm sad to say that you are probably spot on! Wives are an odd lot, but it took me a long time to find her and I'm willing to bend to her will. Well, within reason anyway.

they have a harness for and extra $15.00 US that allows the attenuator to be unplugged if you don't need it, say like taking the amp to a jam session or a gig.


Er. I'm confused. I should snap a picture of my attenuator setup. I'll even plug it into a combo amp. They couldn't be easier to unhook already (I own a Weber).

amplifier -> speaker wire #1 -> attenuator -> speaker wire #2 -> speaker

If you want to remove the attenuator, turn everything off, unplug wire #1 from the amp, unplug wire #2 from the attenuator, and plug wire #2 into the amp. Turn it on.

amplifier -> speaker wire #2 -> speaker

The wife says I need to "master" the guitar before I buy any more gear, but try as I have, I can't seem to convince her that "mastering" an instrument, at least for me, isn't very realistic, given my age, etc.


LMAO :lol:

I've got a couple of non music related items I'm putting up on Craig's list and if they sell, then I'll be good to go.

NOW most important MAKE DARN SURE JUMPERS ARE UNSHIELDED CABLES guitar or instrument cables will not work they are shielded, and will cause your amp to over heat when used in the output stage
Rule...Shielded in Unshielded out

The simple mod is simply: taking the wire that connects the speaker to the amp, disconnecting it at the speaker end, and replacing the spades with a plug. Then make a speaker wire with a jack at one end and spades at the other.

Amplifier -> attenuator -> plug & spade wire -> speaker(s).

Does this make sense?

Oh, and make sure the amp is off before trying any of this, or even attaching the attenuator.
