I've been searching on the forum and there are tons of posts about LoadBoxes, but nothing really stating if there is one better than the other, when taking into consideration its price. The ones I know (haven't necessarily tested them, but know their existence): - Rivera RockCrusher - Rivera RockCrusher with EQ - Torpedo Live - Torpedo Reload - Radial HeadLoad - Radial Prodigy. - THD HotPlate Which one is the best purchase for your money, considering it would be used for both silent recording AND volume reduction. Ease of use, quality, tone (ideally not too much tone sucking), etc. The Torpedo Live isn't that interesting for me, as I don't plan on using their IRs. The Reload is a nice device, but it's the most expensive of the lot, it's 3 times the price of the standard Rock Crusher. I have only tried the standard RockCrusher. Seems to work really well, but it does some tone sucking. You need to use the 2 switches to bring back the bottoms and highs. But, once you activate them, it sounds quite good. So for me, for the price, it seems like the best purchase. What would be your ranking? Do you have other devices not in this list that should be in there?
