Attenuator for AC30 - recommendations?

I've just bought a Vox AC30 CC1 (1 x 12") and will be looking for an attenuator.

Anyone got any recommendations? I'll be using it to control volume levels on stage and for practice at home.

I tried both the Hotplate and the Airbrake with my AC30tbx. I prefered the Airbrake by far and felt the Hotplate was horrible above -4db with the Vox. Having said that, the Master Volume on those CC amps is perfectly acceptable, just as good as either attenuator for reducing volume to home levels and close enough for stage use. I'd save my money unless you really need the line out and extra speaker out of the Hotplate.

No tried anything else but the Hotplate works a treat on my AC30HH, even down to quite low levels.

The Marshall Power brake doesn't get alot of love around here, but I used one for a couple years with my Dr.Z Maz38 -kinda vox like with 4 el84's.

I liked the little bit of compression I got with the brake.

It's like any attenuator, if it's really squashing the amp you'll lose tone and dynamics.
