Fryette Power Station Version II

Fryette
Product Overview

When i was over in the States recently i met up with Steve Fryette to check out this amazing product, the Fryette "Power Station"

We're pleased to announce that this is the latest version - The Power Station Version II

The Power Station Version 2 is now more versatile and easy to use than ever, the new PS-2 sports a front panel Input Level sensitivity switch, a rear panel Low Pass Filter Bypass switch, and a Balanced XLR Line Output.

The Power Station has so many usable features, it's primarily designed and sold as a high-end amplifier attentuator but it also features an effects loop, a reactive load and the real kicker, it has 60 watt valve power stage built in, so you can use it as a reverse attenuator. Plug in your vintage AC15, JTM45, Maz 18 etc etc and it turns it into a 60 watt power stage! With added benefit of effects loop, which of course, so many vintage amps don't have.

I'll let Steve Fryette describe it further:

Meet the Fryette Power Station®

What your attenuator wants to be when it grows up!

Our Integrated Reactance Amplifier® is an easy to use, tunable reactive load coupled to a vacuum tube power amplifier that fine tunes your amplifier response which then drives your speaker cabinet.

If you have ever used a resistive or inductive attenuator, you have already experienced the loss of tone and dynamics of your amplifier at various volume settings. You are already frustrated with the typical 3dB step switch that always seems one step too loud or one step too quiet. If you've used a solid state powered attenuator, you've already experienced the flat speaker cab response and finicky effects loop function that never seems to be the perfect level.

The Power Station® solve all of those problems in one convenient, lightweight product that sits neatly on top of any head or combo amplifier.

It serves as:

1) An attenuator for controlling the volume of high powered amplifiers with none of the drawbacks of a conventional attenuator.

  • Perfectly preserves the tone of the attenuated amplifier at any volume setting down to whisper level.
  • Preserves the dynamic feel and speaker response at any volume.
  • Allows you to extend the voicing of any amplifier - a vintage amp can sound more modern, a modern amp more vintage, a dull sounding amp more alive, and a "spongy" amp can sound tighter, etc.
  • Provides a post distortion effects loop for any amp whether or not it already has one.
  • Provides an unbalanced line out for any amp whether or not it already has one.
  • Completely safe for any amplifier.
  • Choose 4, 8 and 16 ohms separately for both the amplifier and cabinet matching. No more nerve-wracking impedance mis-matching that could damage your amplifier.
  • Compact and easy to carry, sit on top of an amp head, combo or desktop.
  • Silent direct recording via unbalanced out.

2) A power booster for low powered amps.

  • Can attenuate or boost the output of a lunchbox amp.
  • Any small amp, Tiny Terror, Tweed Champ, AC15, Princeton, etc., can cut a live gig with a full band with all original tone intact.
  • Allows you to extend the voicing of the amplifier - crank a mini amp to the threshold of destruction, then add top, bottom and volume to taste.
  • Silent direct recording via unbalanced out.

3) A high quality adjustable reactive load for silent recording.

Power Station can also perform as:

  • A post distortion effects loop for any amp that doesn't have one.
  • A mono power amplifier for guitar preamps, floor preamps and modeling preamps.
  • An effects power amp for Wet/Dry amp rig.
  • An onstage monitor power amp for live modeling direct to FOH system.
  • A desktop power amp for adding tube power sound to direct recording for any instrument or signal source.

Power Station provides every guitar player a variety of performing and recording solutions for every kind of playing or performing application or environment.
