If you read my Alvarez sale thread, you'll know that I need new tires really badly on my car and the Christmas bills are going to be much higher than I was planning (seems like it happens every year
Anyways, since I'm not in an apartment any more, I don't need my attenuator.
This is by far and away the best attenuator you can buy. Period. I've tried hotplates, the Dr. Z airbrake, weber mass all in a controlled environment and the UA retained by far the majority of the amp's original clarity and fidelity when heavily attenuated.
Mine was bought a little over 2 years ago and it's worked perfectly since day one. I upgraded mine with the high gain/plexi option which essentially is an on/off switch on the back which boosts the upper frequencies (the ones that are typically muffled when heavily attenuated.)
These are hand built, have a lifetime warranty and with the plexi option would cost you $500 brand new not to mention the often lengthy build time. I waited 4 months for mine.
I've been using it every day since day one with my valvemaster and V3 amps with zero problems and I expect the future owner will have the same experience.
Asking $300 for it. Next monday, it'll go on ebay with a $400 reserve.
If you own a tube amp and can't afford to turn it past 2, this is for you. If you can turn the amp up and want killer recording tone without the deafening volume,this is for you. All of my recordings were done using the UA.
The only thing preventing me from saying this is in mint condition is the fact that I drilled 2 small holes in the back to attach L brackets to. This allowed me to have it securely mounted in my rack setup. I did the drilling with the top cover off to make sure no electronics got hit when the bit passed through and the shavings were sucked out with the Dyson.
Sorry the pics are so huge.
