Smicz TADS to tame a 59 Bassman RI?

Just wondering if anyone on list has tried using TADS from Smicz 
Amplification as a way to throttle down the power in your 59 Bassman RI or 
other high-power amp. Here's the description from 
"Many of us own great amps that are WAY TOO LOUD for non-stage situations. 
We've all annoyed loved ones and neighbors trying to let the power tubes in 
our amps get a workout, and most of us have flirted with permanent ear 
damage or met local law enforcement personnel in the process. Most players 
don't realize that 3-5 watts can be surprisingly loud for home practice 
situations. ... Our TADs are direct replacements for your amp's higher 
wattage power tubes. A pair of TADs will bring your beloved 50-watt Plexi 
down to a very manageable 3-4 watts. The same is true for that fine sounding 
Blackface Super. Simply replace your output tubes with the correct TADs and 
away you go. There is no adjustment or rebiasing needed. Finally, power tube 
saturation at reasonable volumes."
A '59 Bassman RI will require a pair of TAD-2HVs, which runs $135 with 
shipping in the U.S. Not cheap, but perhaps a good way to get fat tone at 
lower volumes from this amp.
