Perhaps an EQ pedal, then?

Yeah, could do. I'm not overly concerned, though - I have four guitars that sound great through it and two that don't. I have three other amps for those.

I already have a Classic 50. I've played some Classic 30s, and they're still too loud. :lol: I think my new neighbors are probably getting pissed at me cranking my Classic 50, so I want some good tube tone at low volumes. Too bad Peavey doesn't make a Classic 10 or Classic 5. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Pretty damn good sounding amp if I do say so myself.


If you love the sound of your amp but its a bit too loud - Get An Attenuator!
Try a THD... I think you'd like it.

That said, I'm kind of intrigued by the Blackheart line. They're designed by the same guy who did the Orange "Tiny Terror" line, except he got to use better parts for the Blackheart amps.

I've heard about those attenuators here, but I don't know anything about them.

If my amp is 50w, what wattage of attenuator would I need?

If you get a Weber - probably one for 100 watt range.
If you get a THD HotPlate - they're based on the output load (ohms) of your amp
Dr Z AirBrake doesn't worry about either of those - just plug it in
Marshall PowerBrake - same requirements as the Dr Z..
