I tried out the attenuator settings last night and they work great. Even the 1w is very nice, so now I can play a bit after the wife goes to bed. Huzzah! Big Grin

Brownfacing (aesthetically only, still blackface tonally) the blonde Fender Tone Master Twin Reverb is complete! Cool

I love those white amp knobs on things, even guitars. I guess if you install them correctly (baseline/index at "0" and know, visually, where the sweep is, you don't necessarily NEED the numbers showing, especially if the tone and other settings roughly remain the same...just adjust the volume as needed?

In any case, I like that look. Those blonde Super-Sonic amps use those knobs, and have the numbers printed on the faceplate. My favorite Fender amp look of all time.

I saw a pic online years ago of one of those brown '63 Vibroverb reissues from the 90's (I think it was for sale on Reverb) where someone swapped out those white/cream cupcake knobs (instead of the stock brown). Sacrilege to some, I realize, but it actually looked better, IMO. They "popped" off the dark faceplate and just looked nice with the numbers, writing and dividing lines.

When I installed the cupcake knobs, I made sure all the controls were turned down fully. Then I did my best to ensure the knob marker line was set to the "0" position when tightening the screw on each knob. I may need to tweak them as some of the knobs tend to move slightly when I was tightening the knob screws.

Also helpful is the "5" position marker on the face plate for each knob.

Of course, really, it's all in the ears, too. I don't tend to crank my amps at home so I don't hurt our ears (my wife's, our dogs', or mine).
