JHS Little Black Amp Box Attenuator

Taming a screaming-loud tube amp doesn't always require bulky and expensive load boxes and attenuators. If your amp has a series effects loop, the JHS Pedals Little Black Amp Box takes care of the job while being able to fit into the palm of your hand. Simply run it through your amp's effects loop and control the amount of signal you send to your amplifier's power section. You'll love the way the Little Black Amp Box lets you really push the front end of your amp for the natural feel and tone that you can't get any other way. And your bandmates, sound engineer, parents, neighbors, significant other, and pets will love the way it can keep your volume down to bedroom levels.

Cranked amp tone at whisper volume

If your amp has a series effects loop, you should stop reading this and go buy a JHS Pedals Little Black Amp Box. All the roaring amp tones you need come with none of the ear-bleeding levels.

Convenient low-profile design

A device such as the Little Black Amp Box is content to be a workhorse piece of gear that quietly does its job in the background. That's why JHS designed this little guy to be compact, sturdy, and simple to integrate into your rig.

Features:

- Run it in your effects loop to turn down a turned-up amp
- Retain the response and tone of your amp's sweet spot at lower levels
- High-grade components keep your tone clear and pure
- Passive design doesn't require any power
- Small size is ideal for saving pedalboard space or even setting on top of your amp
- Can easily be mounted underneath your board
- Built rugged
- Black powder coating keeps the buffer hidden in the background

zZounds is an authorized dealer of JHS products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
VERIFIED
CUSTOMER
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: While it's the most basic of products (two jacks and a knob, no power needed), it unlocks a lot of functionality within any tube amp with an effects loop. I bought this to pair with a PRS Sonzera 20. I had been struggling with finding a usable volume/tone for the gain channel. It did the trick perfectly. It allowed me to balance the volumes between the two channels without one or the other being way too loud. At $45.00, I think it's a worthwhile investment for any player that uses a tube amp with an effects loop. I'm a fan of JHS products and the simplicity of this product is pure genius.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
