      Comments about Earthworks LP1530 In-Line Attenuator:

      Have used this while filming bands and events. Where it was impossible previously, I can now switch from -15db to -3db at the flick of a switch, and the sound quality is impeccable (using a sennheiser shotgun mic).

      Sturdy material (not light weight flimsy) but made to last. Very happy with the purchase.
