Hi All, long time reader, first time poster here. Due to pretty sensitive ears (tinnitus) I have been playing a strat unplugged for the last decade or so, never amplified. I recently saw the Marshall DSL1 advertised and thought I would try my luck as I love the sounds of classic rock and tube saturation (trower etc). I paired the DSL1HR with an Orange PPC112 1x12 cab and it sounds amazing on both channels, very warm. Due to how loud it is I am forced to play it using the 0.1 watt mode which still sounds excellent. The problem is due to my tinnitus I can never turn the volume knob beyond 1/4, and so I doubt I am ever really hearing the power tube getting to work, just the pre amp tubes. I have now purchased the Palmer PDI06 power attenuator in an attempt to be able to crank the amp up to higher volumes and drive the power section as well as the preamp, to achieve greater tones. Is there any reason why this won't work? I can always return the attenuator but I am quite excited about this idea. Look forward to your feedback- I am quite new to amplification so don't know too much about this subject.
