I've been wanting a load box that can drop my Boogie down to manageable volumes but also has some kind of out to an interface or desk for PA. I want it attenuated in both situations though. I was reading about the Palmer but apparently when you run it through a cab as well it is not attenuated at all.
What's out there that can achieve this?
Nope, Palmer is all or nothin sadly. I think the Mesa cab clone might do what your after but plenty of guys on here can confirm. I was looking at a jettenuator for a while which attenuates as well as acts as a load for silent recording without a cab. It's can be had pretty cheap - but it's a resistive load not reactive which doesn't sound as good so I'm told. What's your budget?
