The Step Ladder

Product Files

The Step Ladder is a passive input attenuator using high quality components for excellent reliability. True-bypass mode provides the maximum signal level. The attenuator pot and two toggle switches allow for flexibility in the amount of signal attenuation when not in bypass mode. Treble bleed capacitors in the circuit retain crisp high frequencies even at maximum attenuation. The Step Ladder is ideal for anything from getting a slight boost while playing single-note acoustic guitar leads or for jumping from clean to overdrive in a high-gain electric guitar amp. The Step Ladder’s compact size (3 ¾” x 1 ½” x 1 ¼” enclosure) fits in most guitar cases. Its battery-free operation ensures that it’ll be ready to go whenever you need it.

No, The Step Ladder should be placed between your instrument and your amp's input. It is not meant to attenuate amplified signals.

Good morning, there. Your projects are great! I am looking for a passive (or not) attenuator (power soak) to at the amp outlet to the speaker. I checked this out but I don't think it is the case. Do you have any DIY project for this matter (50W, 8 Omhs). Thanks , Rafael.

Thanks, Rafael! We don't currently have an amp attenuator project but I can certainly pass it along a suggestion.
