Variac question

Variac question
Does anybody know if using a Variac with a marshall head would be a good idea. Would it be safe or harmful to my amp? I wanted to use it to lower the voltage going to the amp so I could get a good distortion at lower volumes. I also heard about the THD hotplate, but I heard it kills your tone. Does anybody have any opinions on this?
