I'm thinking the reactive ones may be what to hunt down. I've always held off attenuators before because of tone suck comments but it's this or consign my tube beasts to the museum. Cracks me up, I see people using them on 5E3, this has been my soft home amp for a long time.


I tried to tell that turkey who was selling it, that it was rated at 2.7 Ohms, but he was too dishonest to disclose that fact because he knew not many people would buy it.


Green one, Christchurch seller? If it is I sold him that with full impedance disclosure. Intended for 3x10 Fenders I guess. I used it with a 4x10 Super Reverb and tried it with the 3x10 Victoria. When he subsequently listed it he ignored questions about its intended application.


Yeah, that was him.

He sure did, because I asked him exactly that.


He ignored them on the previous listing too. Underhanded fuck.

Fuck that guy. Post it in the tardme thread next time and we can all go full shark mode and report it.

His feedback includes most of the forum.

What's that legal-like term: Guilt by omission?

Agree with that. What’s his TM username so we can all steer clear?

I my listing I said it was 2.7 ohm and provided a pic to show that. I wrote: "Typically used with Fender amps with an output between 2 and 2.7 ohm (three and four 8 ohm speaker configurations). Since sold my Super Reverb so don't need it."

His two listings ignored questions:

I had the pop-up headlight 750.


Nice!

Not a bike you bought because it rode well 8)


No but I used to like bikes that gave you an early warning. I liked the Zephyr 1100 too but only had the 750. Loved that bike. It'd weave through the corners if you pushed it but at least you got fair warning. Many a CBR600 rider only found out they were pushing the limits as they ploughed through a hedge. :-(
