EQ Stomp Box In Effects Loop As An Attenuator

Postby SnaggleToof » April 22nd, 2016, 8:10pm

I'm looking to get that cranked tube amp sound without really doing it, disrupting my neighbors or buying an actual attenuator. Is it possible to use an EQ stomp box (Boss GE-7) as an attenuator? In this case, it's acting like a volume choke.

I'm reading pros and cons online in other forums, juSt wondering if anybody local is doing it or has done it and if it causes any problems. If there's a slight change in overall tone, I'm not totally worried because I'd set all the EQ bands neutrally and would adjust as needed.

Thanks guys...

So, you play pretty good for a blind white boy.
