Tube amp attenuation taken to the next logical extreme.

Jet City's 100 watt attenuator is an excellent tool for both live and recording. Amp inputs at 4-, 8-, and 16-ohms makes Jettenuator more versatile than other attenuators. The continuous attenuation control lets you set the volume right where you want it. A line-level output is also included with its own level control. Use this to connect Jettenuator to an external power amplifier, or effects processors in professional applications.

Rounding out the feature set is the MicSim output. This balanced, XLR output simulates a microphone in front of a speaker, so you can attenuate your amp and send a great-sounding feed to the house, or your recording mixer. It’s like a direct box for your cranked-up tube amp.

Jet City Amplification Jettenuator Amp Power Attenuator Features:

  • Multiple impedances
    Mic simulator
    Line level out
    Great for live or studio.

  • Does NOT work like it should. Try something else.

    As reviewed by Will Mott on 3/8/2014

    I run my own recording studio and have many tube amps, so this is coming from a seasoned ear and a tube amp fanatic. When connected between an amp and a speaker, even at no attenuation, the amp sounds like it's starving. This makes no sense to me, how did they not hear this at the factory? This is supposed to allow YOUR tone at low volume, but it completely ruins it. There are a few companies that make these kind of devices and I have yet to try the others, and now I'm a little afraid to. The concept is amazing, but the implementation just isn't there. The line out has the same issue, and the mic sim out is horrible, it sounds like a high pass filter, all the lows are gone.

  • Unlike any other attenuator!

    As reviewed by Dwane Woodard on 3/8/2014

    Unlike any other attenuator, the Jettenuator has the ability to handle either 4 ohm, 8 or 16 ohm heads in this very compact footprint. I'm not sure there is any other attenuator in the market that can do that! The Jettenuator also serves as a load box. If you set the Jettenuator at 2, you can unplug your speaker cabinet. There are 2 outputs that can be used too, a mic out and a line out. The line out can be controlled by a line out knob. I spent some time talking with the guys at Jet City over this, and this is why it gets 4 stars... In order for the line out to be used, I always have to have it set at 9. I basically use it to record. I have to run the Jettenuator through an EQ or Sonic Stomp in order to add a little more low end. This makes it sound more like a 410 than a 110. I also couple the line out with the mic out. The lone out has more distinct highs. I also recorded my cabinet mic'd, with the line out and the mic sim with very different settings on the attenuator. There is no appreciable loss of highs/lows/dynamics. Randomly I couldn't tell the difference as well as other guitarists that I know. Highly recommended.
