Fryette Introduces the Power Station

A level attenuator for controlling the volume of high-powered guitar amplifiers.

North Hollywood, CA (December 19, 2014) -- The Fryette Power Station is an easy-to-use reactive load coupled to a vacuum tube power amplifier that allows you to attenuate a high-powered guitar amp, or boost a low-powered guitar amp.

The Fryette Power Station serves as a level attenuator for controlling the volume of high-powered guitar amplifiers with none of the drawbacks of a conventional resistive or inductive attenuator.

Features:

  • Perfectly preserves the tone of the attenuated amplifier at any volume setting down to whisper level
  • Maintains 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
  • Silent, direct recording
  • Completely safe for any amplifier up to 150 Watts

Power Station provides every guitar player a variety of performing and recording solutions for every kind of playing or performing application or environment.

$599 street

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

How our columnist’s risky purchase turned out to be a dusty pre-CBS jewel.

This month, I’d like to share the story of my 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb. It was a really risky purchase that had some big surprises.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

Heavy.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
