SmashQuiet attenuator upgrade for the Smash preamp

$269.00

Our stepped attenuator upgrade for the BeePre preamp has been so well received that we decided to offer a similar upgrade for the Smash preamp.

When we were developing our premium BeePre 300B preamp kit we built the prototype preamp circuit itself on a pair of chassis, and we built several outboard chassis platforms that allowed us to try various attenuator schemes. We tried all sorts of schemes – inexpensive carbon potentiometers, our old standby Sweetest whispers attenuator, high end stepped attenuators from other manufacturers, transformer volume controls, ladders, shunts, series steps, etc., etc.

Our old faithful Sweetest Whispers attenuator floated to the top of these various setups. But we felt the Whispers had room for improvement in two areas. One was that the steps were rather big. The other was that we had always used inexpensive switches to keep the price reasonable.
