    I've used Komet Airbrakes for Fenders with very good results, FWIW.

    I use a hotplate with my Super Reverb.. I love it. I usually only attenuate 1 or two clicks, but it's great to have the Super on "4" right from the start!

    My first choice would be a Dr Z airbrake for two reasons. Very transparent until you really clamp down. Also the initial insertion attenuation is only 2db.

    Second choice is Weber minimass. The weber starts with more attenuation, to some folks too much. Also the top end drops off a bit but this unit has a treble boost built in to counter that. Plus it's cheap.

    You cannot use the DR.Z with a Super reverb don't remember why but it stuck in the gray matter.
