I picked up a DR.Z Airbrake for my Powerball a few weeks ago, gotta say that it blows away other attenuators. Its one, if not the only TRUE attenuator, all it does is send part of your signal to ground. So its completely transparent. I was thinking about getting a Weber Mass but I found one of these used (previously owned by Steve Miller) at a guitar shop.

And +1 to the volume pots being a gimmick. The purpose of an attenuator is to control the signal coming from your power tubes, cant exactly do that if you are placed in the effects loop before them.
