The Z Air Brake (developed by Ken Fischer „Trainwreck“) has two major applications. One is for stage use, the other is for studio or home use.

For stage use, the Z Air Brake is a useful tool to limit your overall dB level at any time during a performance. Example: the beginning of the night (when the club isn't full) click the Air Brake to a level of attenuation to allow for smooth tone at a lower volume level. As the night progresses, reach back and remove degrees of attenuation until the desired level is reached. This will allow you to manage your amp's overall volume without varying from your amp's favorite settings.

At home, the Air Brake is useful for lower volume while still allowing for full output tube distortion. The Air Brake has a "bedroom" level control that, when selected, will allow for fine adjustment and maximum attenuation down to 1 watt (with amps less than 100 watts.)


The Z Brake Lite Attenuator will be right at home mounted inside your combo amp. Like the Airbrake, there is no sacrifice in tone. Perfect for dialing in your combo to it’s sweet spot while dialing back the volume level. The Brake Lite works with any tube amp up to 45 watts and can be used with 4, 8, or 16, ohm loads. Very simple to install, the Brake Lite mounts with 2 screws and has a hardwired speaker cable to plug into the amp chassis. Plug the speaker into the Brake Lite and you are ready to go.

Please note: the Brake Lite is NOT a stand alone unit and needs to be mounted in a combo for proper operation.


Brake Lite SA (Stand Alone.) does have the same guts as the combo mount Brake Lite, but able to be tossed in the gig bag for use with many different amps on the fly. The Brake Lite SA works with any tube amp up to 45 watts and can be used with 4, 8, or 16, ohm loads. The SA features 2 speaker outs that are wired in parallel. You can now run multiple cabs with ease. The Brake Lite SA measures 6" x 5" x 3 ¼" and weighs in at 1 ½ lbs. Four ½" feet give plenty of clearance for resting on top of your amp. At the Zero setting the Brake Lite SA is fully bypassed. Each click yields more attenuation: 1=2dB, 2=5dB, 3=8dB, and 4=11dB. Always use speaker cable to connect the Brake Lite SA to your speaker. When connecting a second cab you will be making a parallel load. Ex: a pair of 8 ohm cabs use the 4 ohm speaker out on your amp.
