Topic: Jim Kelley attenuator - advice
I have the chance of buying a Jim Kelley reverb head - I've got first refusal. Having played it only for a short while in a large rehearsal room, even when set at 30 watts this amp is really, really loud BUT has the most amazing tone and overdrive.
Having done a little research, Kelley amp owners seem to like his attenuator, but I've seen conflicting advice at how good the attenuator is at lowering the sound levels. Some say it is good at shaving off a few dBs only and others say it can also make the amp usable at bedroom levels and others say it cannot do this.
So, can the JK attenuator get the sound levels low enough for home use / late night practice? Any advice would be great.
