I've had my Divided by 13 RSA23 for a little over a week now and I feel like it is really coming together. As a little backstory I traded a fellow TGP forum member my old 65 Amps London head for his short box RSA23. I was initially concerned of the volume implications of such a change, but everything I read about the RSA indicated it was a great amp, so I decided to take my chances. With the London I was only using a fuzz pedal and a boost, and most of the gain was coming from cranking the amp up about 3/4. I don't use master volume amps generally, so with the gain comes volume. I got the RSA in, hooked it up to my speaker cab, and almost blew out the windows in my practice room. This amp is loud with a capital LOUD. It sounds incredible even at the lowest volume settings, but that volume comes on very fast. I decided I needed to do something about the volume for the sake of my wife. my dog, and my neighbors. After doing some research on everything from distortion pedals, to speaker and cab swaps, I decided I should try an attenuator. I've never used one before, and was kind of wary, but after reading up on the subject I had norrowed it down to the Ultimate Attenuator or the Dr Z Airbrake. I decided to try a Dr. Z Airbrake as another forum member was selling one at a good price. Got it in and hooked it up to my amp and speaker cab and it was nearly instant gratification. I want to be clear as to what I'm using the Airbrake for so as not to mince words or cause confusion. I play loud, even at home, but I dont play loud all the time. I generally crank the amp and control everything from the guitar's volume control. I needed something that would shave a little volume off the amp and preserve the interactivity of the guitar volume control, all while sounding good. The Airbrake does this wonderfully. Now it is not going to turn your big amp into a bedroom amp and still sound the same (I'm not sure if that can be done with any device), but it will help make things much more manageable. I can see using this thing and the RSA for nearly any gig except for small coffehouse type stuff or backing an acoustic, in which case I'll bring a Champ. I just got a Lovepedal Eternity and am looking forward to trying that with this setup. I think between the Airbrake, my fuzz, and the Eternity I should be set for nearly any situation I need to gig or practice. Hope you found this helpful and please ask if you have any questions.
