Additional Information

Guitar amps sound best when turned up LOUD! That is when we really start to hear all the richest harmonic overtones and feel the most dynamic response from the power tubes but thats alwayys TOO loud so we must compromise and turn down, losing that sweet tone...well, compromise no more, Carl's Custom Guitar's Speaker Soak allows you to dial in your favorite full volume tones and then attenuate the volume (without losing that great tone!) before it hits the speakers, all the way down to safe "bedroom" volumes if need be, simply insert this device between your amplifier's speaker output and the speaker itself (out from amp's speaker output into IN on the Speaker Soak, OUT from Speaker Soak to the speaker, using speaker cables) turn the Speaker Soak up all the way, dial in your favorite full volume sound and then rolllllllll back the volume on the Speaker Soak, preserving all that rich tone at lower volumes! Some technical notes here: it is quite normal for this device to get warm, basically the more volume you are attenuating the warmer it will be so just give it a little breathing room on top of your amp or whatnot. It should never get HOT. Do not use this device on amps over 50 watts and be SURE you match ohm rating of your Speaker Soak with that of your amp's output (in other words if your amps speaker output is 8 ohm, get the 8 ohm Speaker Soak, if its 16 get the 16). As long as your amp has no pre-existing problems and this device is used properly it will not harm your amp or shorten tube life any more than if you were running your amp turned up loud. I can not be help responsible if you use this on an amp over 50 watts or with a speaker load mismatch, the last thing I want is anyone harming a device I worked hard to build and/or something they paid their own hard earned money for, so please make sure you use it responsibly! Unlock a whole new world of tones, I look forward to doing business with you, thank you -Carl

I owned a hot plate and it worked fine but at the price this works the SAME! I own 3 of these. 1 for my Peavey Classic 30 @8ohm and use this for my Classic 50 4/10 @16ohm and have 1 for a backup. I play with an 8 piece band, we do Joe Bonamassa type shows and at rehearsal I`d blow everyones ear drums out with out it. I have NP getting that Bonamassa tone with any of my Les Pauls. It does get hot when I have my amp cranked but you get that with any one you use! It simple to use, the amp has a 1/4in jack lined from the speakers and plugs into the amp. This goes between the two. I use an 1/4in extension so I can sit it on top of my amp and access it easily to control the volume. ITS SIMPLE! I can crank my amp at home and have the volume so low you can talk over it while I'm playing. I`ve owned it for just over a year now and it still works great, and I use it almost everyday! I`d say in most cases the ole "You get what you pay for" works but not with this. Carl will save you a... Read more
Great little item and it delivers! Never mind the off-base reviews from morons who buy this, crank their amp to 9 and then complain about tone coloration. This item helps me tame my 45 watt Randall fire-breather so I don't blow out my eardrums trying to get its Master Volume above 2 in my studio. This Speaker soak performs perfectly set 1/3 the way up, allowing me to get my head to 4 or 5 on the Master bringing in a much warmer tone than otherwise possible.
Works as described. I was able to get my egnater rebel 30 down to comfortable levels with little degradation to my tone.
