Now your problems are solved, with the Omnisonic Tube Amp Volume Control Box. These are hand-made in the USA and will look great on your amp or in your pedal board. The Omnisonic achieves an effect similar to that of pricier attenuators and power soaks, at a fraction of the cost. And it works with most brands of tube amps. If your amp has a serial effects loop (or a set of preamp out and power amp in jacks), you can use this box to get the tube tone you paid for without making anyone's ears bleed!
You just put the Omnisonic in the effects loop, turn up the amp's volume, drive, EQ, and/or gain controls to the tone you really want, and then use the box to set the overall sound you've achieved at the exact volume you need. This will work with almost any tube amp, provided that you have an effects loop. It requires no batteries, so it will never stop working. And it WILL NOT harm your amp in any way.
(Please note: the volume box is designed to work with the effects loop of an amp. If your amp doesn't have an effects loop, it won't work for you. Nor should it be placed between the amp and speaker or cabinet. It is designed ONLY for effects loops).
As an added bonus, if your amp doesn't have a Master Volume control (or if your Master Volume only controls the drive channel), the Omnisonic Volume Control Box gives you what you've been missing--master control of all your channels and settings at once.
At the moment, the Omnisonic Volume Box is available only through eBay. They will be available directly from this site soon. If you are interested in either the regular or Deluxe models, please click this link to see my current stock on ebay:
