Fryette PS-100 Power Station One Hundred Integrated Reactance Amplifier

An easy-to-use power attenuator, the Fryette PS-100 features two sets of volume, presence and depth controls for maximum performance and flexibility.

The Fryette Power Station 100 Dual-Mode Reactance Tube Amplifier is an easy-to-use power attenuator for controlling the volume of high-powered tube amplifiers with none of the drawbacks of a conventional attenuator. The PS-100 features two sets of remote foot-switchable front panel Volume, Presence and Depth controls for maximum live performance flexibility, and a powerful Dual 6550 100W Mono-Block for unparalleled punch and dynamic range.

If you've ever used a traditional Power Attenuator, you have already experienced the loss of tone and dynamics of your amplifier at various volume settings, and the frustration with the rotary level switch that always seems one step too loud or one step too quiet.

The Silent Mode feature provides a versatile reactive load for silent recording using low- or high-powered tube amplifiers. In Silent Mode, the balanced XLR Out and unbalanced Line Out remain operational even with the AC power disconnected.

Note: Unit should remain powered on when used with high-powered amplifiers to maintain safe operating temperatures.

The Power Station 100 provides a variety of performing and recording solutions for every kind of playing or performing application/environment and breathes new life and functionality into any amp, large or small.

My first tube amp was a VHT Pitbull combo back in the 90's. I am pretty picky about tone and have owned several attenuators over the years which do not truly capture the nuances of a tube amp. I just received the PS100 and started using it on my Bogner Helios and an Engl E646. Two different style amps which sound different turned up just below half way. I cannot be more happy with the way it attenuates and preserves my amp tone. Thank You so Much!!
