Started to consider attenuation as a means to achieve my goals which I can't do with the Laney.
Looked at the Harley Benton offerings as a dip the toe experiment.

Thoughts.....

I have a Bugera PS-1, very similar to the Harley Benton.
I don't use it on the Origin, but I have tried it to find out what it does.
It does what it's supposed to do - it absorbs power from the speaker signal.
I've used it on my O20H and it dampens the brightness along with the volume.
This can be compensated for with EQ in the amp, or with an EQ pedal.
I also have a BadCat Unleash V2 that is a re-amp with virtually no effect on the amp tone.
You loose speaker breakup, which is part of the tone I love from some workin' greenbacks.
I can get very similar tones with some OD pedals that I can get with an attenuated volume.
You just can't make a low volume amp sound like a loud cranked amp.

Thanks for replying so quickly. The videos I saw were from psionic audio, and to be fair they are the only ones on their, but you know what it's like, one bad applee spoils the cart. Of to guitar guitar now to check one out.

Thanks again
I watch the psionic guy too, he knows his stuff
Check out the Headfirst Amplification guy
He has a whole series on mods he has done.
Sounds killer ! No pedals, straight into the amp !
