NAMM 2011: Rivera Rockcrusher Attenuator
January 14, 2011 by Charlie
NAMM 2011 — Due to be unveiled at this year’s NAMM, the all-new Rockcrusher attenuator is built to Rivera’s usual high standard, handles 120 watts and features a super heavy-duty stepping switch controlling a reactive load.
Unlike the simple resistive loads used in many attenuators, this means the Rockcrusher responds more like a loudspeaker and doesn’t mess with your amp’s tone.
The Rockcrusher also features switchable input impedance, EQ controls, and separate balanced and unbalanced line outs, all for a damn good price.
Here’s legendary legendary Californian amp designer Paul Rivera Sr. explaining the Rockcrusher’s finer points; we hope to review one soon.
