    The Beam Blocker is a simple device that is installed between the speaker and the baffle. The dome shaped diffuser prevents point-source high frequencies from beaming directly out of the cabinet to create that ice pick sound. Instead, they are diffused evenly in all directions to blend with the lower frequencies which tend to radiate in a wider pattern.

    The Beam Blocker allows you to make use of speakers that have a tendency to be beamy, harsh, or generally unusable due to their extreme high frequency response. The idea of using a diffuser is not new. Many performers including SRV were known to have applied a patch of duct tape on the grill cloth directly inline with the center of the speaker to block the beaminess. The Beam Blocker performs that same function while diffusing the high frequencies evenly in all directions.

    Here is a video by Rick Fass, which shows some very helpful information about the Beam Blocker, including how to install it. (Try to ignore the speaker brands in the video. Your setup will sound much better with Weber Speakers.)

    15" Beam Blocker (5" Dome)

    This attenuator has a main volume knob and 3-position treble compensation switch which affect the signal to the speaker. The line out signal is dependent on your amplifier settings.

    Impedance selector for 4, 8, 16 ohms, 3-position treble compensation switch, MASS bypass switch, unbalanced line out. The MiniMASS employs an actual speaker motor for realistic interaction between the attenuator and the output circuit of the amplifier. The attenuation is continuously adjustable from about -3dB to over -50dB.

    By turning the speaker control to minimum (maximum attenuation), the unit may be used as a dummy load for testing or for DI use.

    5.5” x 5.5” footprint (add 1” in front for knob). 3.75” tall. 3.35 lbs basic.

    This item is hand-built to order, to ensure the best attention to detail is paid to its construction.  We build them one at a time, on a table - not hundreds at a time on an assembly line.  This allows us to reduce the margin for error and produce an overall higher-quality product.  Please allow at least 7-10 business days for your order to be built and then shipped.

    Designed for use with 35w amplifiers and lower.

    This attenuator has two knobs for tonal control. The main volume is controlled by the Lows-Mids knob. Then to control the treble, use the Mids-Highs knob. The treble control is always dependent on the main volume control. Be aware that the higher the setting on the main knob, the less the effect of the treble compensation. For instance, if you turn the main knob all the way to 10, you'll notice very little change in the tone as you turn the treble compensation from one end to the other. The line out signal is dependent on your amplifier settings.

    May be used on 4, 8, and 16 ohm amplifiers. Includes MASS bypass, and unbalanced line out. Two power level controls, one for the bass-mid frequencies and one for the upper mids-treble frequencies. They may be adjusted independently for the best tone at all levels of attenuation. These controls affect the actual signal going to the speaker, not the line out signal. So, it is like having high level tone controls. The controls are very effective and the tonal combinations are virtually infinite. Because a MASS motor is employed, a more realistic interaction between the attenuator and the output circuit of the amp occurs. The attenuation is continuously adjustable from -3dB to over -50db using the attenuation controls.

    Like all Weber attenuators, setting the attenuation controls to minimum (maximum attenuation), allows the MicroMASS to be used as a dummy load for testing or for DI use.

    May be used on 4, 8, and 16 ohm amplifiers. Includes MASS bypass, line out, extra output jack, and range switch.

    Like all Weber attenuators, setting the speaker control to minimum (maximum attenuation), allows the MASS Lite to be used as a dummy load for testing or for DI use.

    Optional wings may be employed for rackmounting the MASS (sold separately). The MASS Lite occupies two rack spaces and requires adequate ventilation for proper operation.

    Designed for use with 60w amplifiers and lower.

    This attenuator has three knobs for tonal control. The main volume is controlled by the BASS knob. Then to control the mids and treble, use the MIDDLE knob and TREBLE knob. The middle and treble controls are always dependent on the main volume control. Be aware that the higher the setting on the main knob, the less the effect of the treble compensation. For instance, if you turn the main knob all the way to 10, you'll notice very little change in the tone as you turn the treble compensation from one end to the other. The line out signal EQ is dependent on your amplifier settings, with only a volume and tone control on the unit.

    May be used on 4, 8, and 16 ohm amplifiers. This MASS is unique in that it has an actual tone stack for the speaker signal -- BASS - MIDS - TREBLE. It also has the internal speaker motor for the load, and has a variable line out signal with volume and tone. The unit has two speaker output jacks to support multiple cabinets. The three tone controls can take the signal from whisper quiet to full on with slight humps in the bass, mids, and treble.

    Additionally, the MASS III has an active bypass circuit with a footswitch so you can run attenuated or bypassed. The footswitch has a 12' cable, and the power pack for the switching relays is a 7.5VDC wall wart. With no power applied, the attenuator is still usable. The power is just for the footswitch circuitry.

    Like all Weber attenuators, you can turn all attenuator controls to zero, pull the speaker, and just use the line out, making the MASS III a dummy load.

    Optional wings may be employed for rackmounting the MASS (sold separately). The MASS III occupies two rack spaces and requires adequate ventilation for proper operation.

    Designed for use with 80w amplifiers and lower.

    Impedance selector for 4, 8, 16 ohms, treble compensation switch, Bypass switch, Line Out. Employs a resistive load like other attenuators on the market. Not as interactive as the MASS products. The attenuation is continuously adjustable from -3dN to over -50db. As with all Weber attenuator products, by turning the speaker control to minimum (maximum attenuation), the unit may be used as a dummy load for testing or for DI use.

    Full attenuation: up to 35w amplifiers. Slight attenuation: up to 50w amplifiers.

    The Two-Head Amp Switcher allows you to switch two different heads to the same speaker or speaker cabinet.

    The heads are footswitch-selectable, and the impedance is selectable -- 2, 2.6, 4, 5.3, 8, 16 ohms. The head that is not in use is put into a 200 watt dummy load of the impedance you selected.

    The Two-Head Amp Switcher includes a level adjustable balanced (XLR) line out jack. Included in the purchase of the Two-Head Amp Switcher is the main control unit and a wall wart power supply, available with 120-130VAC input or 220-240VAC input.

    The Two-Head Amp Switcher DOES NOT switch your guitar input from amp to amp. This switcher is designed for players who are already using two different amplifiers, but wish to simplify to one cabinet.

    The Two-Head Amp Switcher (No Footswitch) allows you to switch two different heads to the same speaker or speaker cabinet.

    The heads are manually selectable, and the impedance is selectable -- 2, 2.6, 4, 5.3, 8, 16 ohms. The head that is not in use is put into a 200 watt dummy load of the impedance you selected.

    The Bias Rite Cathode Current Monitor is a self contained unit designed to allow the user to set the desired idle cathode current value with the G1 bias control. Two adapter sockets are provided so the power supply may be loaded as it would be in normal operation, an important feature since most amplifier power supplies are unregulated. One and four adapter models are also available. The Bias Rite is supplied with an integral digital readout which measures the cathode current to the tenth of a milliamp over a range of 1 to 199 milliamps. Power is supplied by an internal 9 volt battery.

    The VI switch allows one to switch the digital meter between reading plate voltage and cathode current. This allows one to quickly calculate plate dissipation to ensure that the operating parameters of the output tubes are within a safe range. The VI switch is standard on all complete models.
