    Makes sense being you have a Z amp to go with the airbrake... I have heard some people having problems with the UA. The hotplate has a good rep. You could also look into the new weber stuff. Best priced Attenuaters on the market. As for me I don't use em. I am a master Vol and or pedal guy.

    Airbrake sounds awesome with the Z's.

    I use an Airbrake with my MAZ 18 Junior 2 X 10. I think it works really well.

    also try the alessandro muzzle. I have both the airbrake (on my germino club 40) and the 'muzzle' on my route 66 Dr Z. I like the muzzle better for the Z. Seems like the bass gets through better when I am playing in the studio. But they both are of similar design (I opened them up and compared them), so it is no surprise they both work well. The alessandro is about 200$ bu you have to specify wattage and ohm ratings. My guess is that the Z is set for 8 ohms optimally but probably both the muzzle and airbrake would easily do 16 ohms.

    How many of you have had Richters?

    If the amp has a 8 ohms output no contest Richter. I had a Alessandro nice but no contest. ;)

    I've got a Route 66 that I regularly run through a THD Hot Plate. We usually don't play rooms big enough to let her rip, so the Hot Plate lets me consistently dial in the sweet spot and not drown everyone out. I'm extremely happy with the results.

    I'm playing through 2x8 ohm cabs in parallel so I need a 4 ohm attentuator.
    Does the Richters come in that ohm rating??? What is the website??

    I was planning on putting my AirBrake on ebay this weekend; mint - it was used for only a couple hours. All docs and original sales receipt. PM me for more info.
