Overview

The Fryette Power Station Integrated Reactance Amplifier is an easy to use Power Attenuator for controlling the volume of high-powered amplifiers with none of the drawbacks of a conventional attenuator, and a Tube Power Booster that can turn any mini-amp, preamp, pedal, modeling amp or modeling app into a gig-ready amplifier!
If you have ever used a traditional Power Attenuator, you have already experienced the loss of tone and dynamics of your amplifier at various volume settings, and the frustration with the rotary level switch that always seems one step too loud or one step too quiet.

The Power Station not only solves all of those problems, but also provides you with more sonic options in one convenient, lightweight package:
Perfectly preserves the tone of the attenuated amplifier at any volume setting down to whisper level.
Preserves the dynamic feel and speaker response at any volume.
Provides a post distortion integrated effects loop.
Provides an XLR balanced and a 1/4-in. unbalanced line out for direct recording or live performance signal processing.
Choose 2/4, 8 or 16 ohms separately for both the amplifier and cabinet matching. No more nerve-wracking impedance mis-matching that could damage your amplifier.
Compact and easy to carry, the Power Station sits comfortably on top of an amp head, combo or desktop.
Completely safe for any tube amplifier.

Re-amping
As a re-amper, the Power Station breathes new life and utility into your favorite gear:
Any small amp, preamp or modeler can cut a live gig with a full band.
Crank a mini amp to the threshold of destruction, then adjust the Power Station to preserve the original tone or create an entirely new identity for it.
Perfect as mono power amplifier for guitar preamps, floor preamps and modeling preamps.
Ideal as an effects power amp for a Wet/Dry amp rig or a monitor power amp for live modeling direct to FOH.
Great as a desktop power amp for adding tube power to direct recordings for any instrument or signal source.
Silent Mode feature provides versatile reactive load for silent recording using low or high powered amplifiers.
Silent Mode, Balanced XLR Out and Unbalanced Line Out remain operational even with power disconnected.
The Power Station provides a variety of performing and recording solutions for every kind of playing or performing application/environment.

The Power Station breathes new life and functionality into any amp large or small.

It was a bit pricey but it works real good.

Comments about Fryette PS-2 Power Station Integrated Reactance Amplifier:

It took me a while to get the hang of it. I bought it to contain my stage volume of my Fender Vibroverb. The Power Station 2 has a small button on front to change the input gain to it. Make sure to press it in for hi-powered amps. Then adjust the PS-2 to sound like your amp at the same volume. Then on stage, crank you amp volume on up. Then turn down the PS-2 volume to desired level. Then adjust PS-2 presence and depth knob and switches to taste. Works great for small to mid size venues. Works fine with stomp boxes as well. Does it sounds as good as a Vibroverb cranked on 10? No, definitely not, but it's pretty close and sounds a lot better than just stomp boxes and the amp volume on 3.

Comments about Fryette PS-2 Power Station Integrated Reactance Amplifier:

I've got a lot of great gear. Some of Dr.Z's finest amps and the PS-2 is truly a game changer for a powerful gutsy amp like the Z-Wreck when you have to play on a small stage and can't wind it up to full performance level.
The PS-2, used properly, will deliver the tone of your raging amp at levels that will work in church! My first gig with it was with our praise band and we use mic'd up amps thru in-ear monitors. The music director likes to sound to all be mixed down and pumped thru FOH, which isn't ideal when you have to keep your stage level down to around 90-95dB. Enter the PS-2. I was more than impressed and I can tell you...if you're on the fence about whether or not to buy one, BUY IT. DO IT NOW. It's not cheap but it's worth every cent.
I have not used the direct out yet, so I can't comment on that. But as far as reigning in your raging beast of an amp...this is the good stuff.

    Comments about Fryette PS-2 Power Station Integrated Reactance Amplifier:

    This is not just an attunuator. I use it for a Sonicord Toad 33 watt 3 knob tube amp. Very transparent and can be used for more headroom if needed. Also has effects loop and direct out. A must have for tube amp players that want to practice with the feel of tube amp at your sweet spot. Very transparent so that the amps tone shines right thru...I would not want to do without this in ant situation live or not. The perfect volume can be obtained in live situations as well. I can now live in my amps sweet spot. Just love it!

      I rarely do reviews but this box warrants it and is fantastic! It is feature loaded. The attenuator can't get any better (tried quite a few), has plenty of IO options AND has a great tube power amp. What more can you ask for? A+++

      A+ Highly recommend!! This is by far one of the best pieces of gear I have purchased in quite some time. I use the PS-2 with my Marshall and Two-Rock 100 watt heads. The quality of build is solid. Check out YouTube vids. Hearing is believing.

        I can drive my Hot Rod Deluxe at high volume and listen at a low level in y house. I get all the amazing gain and distortion out of my amp, yet do not have to have my ears bleed and upset the family. The effects loop is quieter than my amps. This works just like they said it would.
