By far the largest attenuator we’ve tested, the PRX150-Pro’s
Speaker Reactance Thru (SRT) technology helped deliver a satisfyingly
balanced tone at reduced volume levels when tested with a Hughes &
Kettner Coreblade amp. The rack-mountable PRX150-Pro ($649 retail)
has six levels of step attenuation (the first three of which we found
most useable), a continuously variable attenuation control for “bedroom”
volume, independent input and output impedance selectors
(2Ω, 4Ω, 8Ω, 16Ω), a line-out jack w/Level control, and a 150-
watt power rating. aracom-amps.com —Art Thompson
Made in a small workshop near Chicago, Illinois, Hoffee Cases offers quality carbon-fiber guitar cases for electric
and acoustic instruments that are priced at $499 direct. The two cases we evaluated
were well made, lightweight (under 8 lbs for the electric version), and featured soft
plush-lined interiors, comfortable handles, and riveted-on
U.S.-made latches. carbonfibercases.com —Art Thompson
Hate playing through headphones? Try the Travel-
Studio ($249 direct), which lets you broadcast your
guitar signal to an unused FM radio band using 16 decent
sounding DSP effects, along with 5-band EQ, and amplifier and
distortion simulation. The unit features a backlit display, 1/4"
and XLR balanced inputs and outputs, mini USB and headphone
jacks, and it runs on four AA batteries or the included adapter.
Admittedly, I don’t typically play though my radio, but once I tried Travel-
Studio, the concept grew on me. Prime-audio.com —Michael Ross
Although a tad weighty at 3.3 lbs, the Chameleon
operates on either 115 or 230 volts AC and provides various combinations of
9VDC, 12VDC, 18VDC, and 12VAC from six isolated 300mA outlets. It comes
with 13 DC link cables, including a five-pedal daisy chain, and worked like a charm,
easily powering even my current-hungry T. Rex Room-Mate tube reverb pedal.
