The THD Hot Plate Power Attenuator – 16 Ohm is a device designed to reduce the output level of a guitar amplifier, allowing the user to achieve high levels of distortion at lower volumes. It is compatible with amplifiers rated up to 100 watts and features a 16-ohm impedance, making it suitable for use with a wide range of guitar amps.
The Hot Plate works by absorbing excess power from the amplifier’s output, converting it into heat and dissipating it through a heat sink. This allows the user to achieve the desired tone and distortion characteristics of their amplifier without having to crank the volume to ear-shattering levels.
The device features controls for attenuation, allowing the user to adjust the level of power being absorbed, as well as a presence switch that can be used to compensate for the high-frequency loss that can occur when using an attenuator.
The Hot Plate is constructed using high-quality components and is designed to be transparent in operation, preserving the tone and character of the amplifier without introducing any unwanted coloration or artifacts. It is also built to withstand the high temperatures generated by the power dissipation process, ensuring reliable and long-lasting performance.
Overall, the THD Hot Plate Power Attenuator – 16 Ohm is an excellent choice for guitarists looking to achieve high levels of distortion at lower volumes, while preserving the tone and character of their amplifier.
