Like them, work good? Do they give a "true sound" or do they alter the amp's tone at all? Do you have to worry about these type of boxes damaging your amp? From what I have read since they go through your effects loop they shouldn't cause damage, but I want to be certain.

Ryan, I'd steer clear of those really cheap "attenuators". They're not much more than a load resistor and a volume pot.They will suck the tone out of your rig. Anything used in your amps effects loop by definition will not let you get the true overdriven sound you're looking for. .
THD and Weber both make good attenuators. Check them out and you can also check reviews of equipment at HarmonyCentral.com.

Thanks for the input. I ended up finding the reviews at harmonycentral late yesterday and came away with the same impressions that you shared. I believe I'll pass. Thanks.

Ditto toovakynd. Does anybody here have any experience using a THD Hot Plate with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe?
