Fryette PS-2 Power Station Integrated Reactance Amp v2

It's an attenuator for high-powered amps, a power booster for low-powered amps, and a reactive load box for silent recording. The Power Station does it all!

The Fryette Power Station Reactance Amp v2 Integrated Reactance Amplifier is an easy to use, tunable reactive load coupled to a vacuum tube power amplifier that fine tunes your amplifier response which then drives your speaker cabinet.

If you have ever used a resistive or inductive attenuator, you have already experienced the loss of tone and dynamics of your amplifier at various volume settings. You are already frustrated with the typical 3dB step switch that always seems one step too loud or one step too quiet. If you've used a solid state powered attenuator, you've already experienced the flat speaker cab response and finicky effects loop function that never seems to be the perfect level.

The Power Station solves all of those problems in one convenient, lightweight product that sits neatly on top of any head or combo amplifier.

Power Station Uses:

1) An attenuator for controlling the volume of high-powered amplifiers with none of the drawbacks of a conventional attenuator.
- Perfectly preserves the tone of the attenuated amplifier at any volume setting down to whisper level.
- Preserves the dynamic feel and speaker response at any volume.
- Allows you to extend the voicing of any amplifier - a vintage amp can sound more modern, a modern amp more vintage, a dull sounding amp more alive, and a "spongy" amp can sound tighter, etc.
- Provides a post distortion effects loop for any amp whether or not it already has one.
- Provides an unbalanced line out for any amp whether read more or not it already has one.
- Completely safe for any amplifier.
- Choose 4, 8 and 16 ohms separately for both the amplifier and cabinet matching. No more nerve-wracking impedance mis-matching that could damage your amplifier.
- Compact and easy to carry, sit on top of an amp head, combo or desktop.
- Silent direct recording via unbalanced out.

2) A power booster for low powered amps.
- Can attenuate or boost the output of a lunchbox amp.
- Any small amp, Tiny Terror, Tweed Champ, AC15, Princeton, etc., can cut a live gig with a full band with all original tone intact.
- Allows you to extend the voicing of the amplifier - crank a mini amp to the threshold of destruction, then add top, bottom and volume to taste.
- Silent direct recording via unbalanced out.

3) A high quality adjustable reactive load for silent recording. The Power Station can also perform as:
- A post-distortion effects loop for any amp that doesn't have one.
- A mono power amplifier for guitar preamps, floor preamps and modeling preamps.
- An effects power amp for Wet/Dry amp rig.
- An onstage monitor power amp for live modeling direct to FOH system.
- A desktop power amp for adding tube power sound to direct recording for any instrument or signal source.

"Excellent transparent accent to controlling large wattage guitar amps..."

The PS-2 I purchases months ago has been an excellent and compelling piece of gear to harness and utilize the full capabilities of my Bogner Helios 100 watt and my Bogner XTC 3534 guitar amplifiers. By feeding these heads into the PS-2 I can completely harness the audio of these stellar amplifiers. I was speculating on the transparent aspect before purchasing, but it truly is minimal at such a low level that it's a mute point. I recommend buying a PS-2. I once owned a Fryette Pitbull Ultralead for 25 years and can vouch for the incredible durability of Fryette equipment. This PS-2 is a game changer. Putting time based effects after both the preamp and power amp stage the level control of effects a joy with a noise floor that is as quiet as any I've come across.
