I'm not sure if this the appropriate place for this, or if DIY effects is better, but I'm getting ready to build an attenuator to place in the loop of my Hot Rod to quiet it down a bit and just make the volume controls more useable in general. It goes from "barely can hear" to "neighbors pissed off" with just the tiniest fraction of a turn, and I want to be able to get a more precise adjustment out of it. From another thread I've learned that a 100K audio is the way to go on the pot. My question is: the jacks I have handy are those that ground the out the input unless a plug is inserted. I know the input jacks do this to protect the OT if the power is on but nothing is plugged in, but does the HRD have the same for the loop jacks, and would it make sense to keep this feature the attenuator? Thanks in advance.
