This is one of the reasons Weber stuff caught on so well early -- you could buy one attenuator and use it on multiple amps of different impedence loads. I was using one on a Bassman (2ohm), Marshall (16 ohm) and a Pro Jr. (8 ohm). Couldn't do that with the Hotplate (at much greater cost I might add).Originally posted by jokerjkny
no comparison... THD Hotplate
it can be used as a dummy load, so you can practically set it to near silent levels. and the bright / deep switches work fine.
works for most P&W gigs i do, and Lawdy knows, i'm always told to keep it down.
While you can use a higher load than the amp's rated for (i.e, 16 ohm load on an amp rated for 8 ohms) it will negatively affect power and tone.
