    Hi:)
    I'm looking for a good attennuator that can tame my 100W Marshall non master volume guitar head.
    My shortlist is based on what is on the market in my country.
    1. Fryette Powerstation 2.
    2. UA OX
    3. Riviera Rockcrusher.

    I only want the best within reactive versions. If the OX has the best attennuator, I buy it even without needing the other functions that comes with it.

    If you just want attuation why not the Freyette power load . It's about half the price of a powerstation .

    The Rockcrusher is a very good unit. Solid, reliable, sounds very transparent and can be had for a good price used. Has a nice XLR recording out put which allows for silent recording, a few tone switches and impedance selector.

    I've heard the Ox is impressive. Then again, when you start heading into the price ranges of some of the higher-end units, the reviews are usually very good. I have the Rock Crusher (the standard version, not the recording, more expensive one). Think I picked it up used for around $400 at GC. Built solid, and works well.

    I use a Rock Crusher sometimes. Seems to work pretty well.

    Also, it can heat leftovers.

    I have a Weber MASS and a Badcat Unleash. Both work well, but the Badcat has better features. Mine is for sale in the classifieds.
