When it comes to attenuation, there's little difference between a JVM and the SC20. Both are master volume amps and get most of their overdrive from the preamp. Yes, you could put an attenuator on a master volume amp, and turn the master up higher, but IMO, due to the design of the amp(s), the difference isn't worth the added expense and lugging around an attenuator.I come from using a JVM so never had to think about attenuation.
It looks like a volume pedal in the loop won’t do anything to get the power tubes cooking if I understand correctly.
