Hi there. Does this attenuator work regardless of the speaker output? I.e. Most attenuators are rated for 4 ohms, 8 ohms, 16 ohms, etc. Does this one work regardless of the load?

This is an input attenuator and goes in between your guitars output and your amps input (just like any guitar pedal). It will not connect between your speaker and your speaker input. Therefore, you can use it on any amp with any speaker load.
Is this already assembled and ready to use?

No, it is a kit and it will have to be soldered and assembled.
Are there any concerns with placing this item somewhere farther down the pedal chain? Does it have to be the 1st pedal in the chain?

This pedal is similar to your volume knob or a passive volume pedal and it will react differently depending on where it is in your chain. I would experiment and move it around to see what works for you!
Would this work well in the effects loop as a master volume?

This is an passive input attenuator and will attenuate volume much like a volume knob or a passive volume pedal. With that in mind you, will want to experiment with its placement for best results.
Will this work between your mod201+ amp and my speaker cabinet ?

This is an passive input attenuator and will attenuate volume much like a volume knob or a passive volume pedal. It goes in front of your amps input just like any effects pedal and does not go in-between your amp and speaker.
Is there an instruction manual for this product?

Yes instructions are included in the kit and you can view them here: https://www.modkitsdiy.com/sites/modkitsdiy.com/files/product_files/the_step_ladder_instructions_1.pdf
Is it possible that this pedal could reduce harmonic feedback? I'm playing a dread of gat with a passive piezo through a line 6 amp.

This will most likely not help in this situation.
Will this enable me to turn up the volume/gain (on my 10 watt amp) for the sound quality, while playing at low volume in my apartment?

This acts more like the volume knob on your guitar where it reduces volume and gain.
What are the dB levels of attenuation for each step?
Asked by Anonymous on March 1st, 2018. 1 person subscribed to this question
The Step ladder has a range from 0 dB to -14dB depending on the settings. Having the pot fully counter-clockwise is -3dB (with toggle 1 up). Toggle 1 down Toggle 2 up, -5 to -7dB. Toggle two down -14dB.
Hi! I´d like to use this for my harmonica microphone, as pads help a lot with feedback control (with more tube character by opening the amp´s volume). Input has to be high (>1M), and I assume the kit is 500k, so I should probably use a 1M pot. Will the capacitors/resistors on the kit work for me or should I double their values?

The best thing to do is contact MOD kits directly at: email@example.com.
Can I use this to attenuate a line-level signal (coming from mixer aux-out) to a instrument-level guitar pedal?

It should work, but you may have to find something of a "sweet spot" using the potentiometer.
