Rivera rock crusher vs thd hot plate

Aug 23, 2012 I think Rivera's non-amp products are pretty underrated in general. I've had experience with the ISO cab, which you don't hear about a lot but I thought it was great as well as the RM-1, which carries their name even though G Lab makes them. ... the rock crusher is great - welcome to the fold!!! ...

    Jan 30, 2019 The THD Hot Plate is reactive. Always had been. ... Others, like the Rivera Rock Crusher, are reactive loads, but only attenuate the amplifier output level down to your desired level. There is still a line out for IR's, but the attenuated signal to the cab is attenuation only, no re-amping

    Sep 05, 2013 I like the Rivera rock crusher. It really was great for allowing you to dime your amp to get the overdriven tone while keeping the volume at a low level. Lots of options on the back panel including xlr output to run to pa. Different DB settings on the front including a studio setting that brought the volume to a whisper without losing tone

    Thinking of upgrading my attenuator

    May 10, 2019 I'll vouch for my Rivera Rock Crusher attenuator: Nice gadgetry that works extremely well. $500 new, though. The Fryette Power Station is the ultimate for a couple hundred more, IMO. Not only does it excel at power attenuation, it's also capable of taking a 5 watt Champ and turning it into a 50 watt ear-splitting monster

    Jan 16, 2018 It’s expensive sure, but it’s more fully featured than a Rock Crusher. However, if you don’t need that sort of feature-set (2-16 ohms, 2 means of EQ on the attenuator), get something that is less expensive, unless you don’t care. Just know that the Power Station is a tube amp, so if you get one, that’s 3 more tubes you have to keep in

    Apr 10, 2014 I mean once it gets to a reasonable distortion level (think AC/DC, hard rock/classic rock amount of distortion) it feels like it is just about to explode. I usually place an overdrive infront of the amp as well as attenuate the signal slightly with a THD Hot Plate (about -4 dB to -8 dB)
