Marshall PB100 Power Brake Soak Tube Volume Control Inductive Speaker Attenuator T
Lets you have big tone at any volume!

As far as your amp is concerned, the Power Brake is the same as speakers—an active load changing constantly with output level. Hooked up to this, you can pump authentic cranked stack sound through a single small cab at modest levels. The Marshall Power Brake Attenuator is essential for getting an overdriven tone at reasonable volume on vintage amps without a gain knob, for hard-rock studio work, and great for controlling onstage sound in clubs. Fan cooled, 100W power handling, eleven-step attenuator. 12 lbs

You want great, overdriven tone. Your valve amp sounds its best CRANKED. But you're tired of your dental fillings shaking loose. Or maybe you're in the studio and you don't want your amp bleeding into everyone else's mics. Or maybe you're one guitar practice away from getting evicted! How can you get monster sound at quieter volume levels? Simple: Put a brake on it. The Marshall Power Brake is the power attenuator that delivers great sound at low volume levels. There are other attenuators or load boxes available, but they don't provide the right type of inductive load. Your amp needs to think it's connected to a speaker. That's what the Power Brake does. The other guys? At best, they cause your amp to sound thin and feeble. At worst, they can blow your valve's output transformer -- Ouch! Get the Marshall Power Brake. It's safer for your amp and safer for your ears

A Cure For the Volume Inhibited!

Marshall's PB 100 Power Brake is the answer to the prayers of volume-inhibited guitarists everywhere! Everyone knows that achieving maximum majestic, soaring sustain and tone from a tube amp requires that it be wound up to "10" (or "11" as the case may be...). The Power Brake safely soaks up all that power, giving you the tone and feel you want at a volume you (and your neighbors) can live with. Basically, the volume can go as low as you want without affecting distortion, tone or feel.The Master Volume control on your valve amp makes it sound good at low volume, but ALL valve amps sound better cranked... this is a scientific fact of life. There are other attenuators or load boxes available, but they won't necessarily provide the right type of inductive load that makes your amp think it's connected to a speaker. At best, these other devices cause your amp to sound thin and feeble. At worst, they can blow your valves output transformer - an expensive proposition. The Marshall Power Brake is the only widely available power attenuator that delivers great sound safely!
