    Are the micro Block 45 and the Interblock 45 supposed to take the place of amp heads? Who's played one?

    How did it sound?

    Yes, they are micro heads. I briefly had the MicroBlock45, and it was OK but nothing special. But that is the smallest cheapest one they make. Some of the bigger ones get rave reviews.

    I played the Interblock at winter NAMM. I was so excited for it-- it was terrible. Absolutely irredeemable. The cab sim feature was garbage.

    I bought a Microblock 45 just to try it out since it was cheap, but I sold it since I already had the Tone Block 200 which seemed like it was the same amp but 200 watts.

    I haven't tried the Interblock, but the Overdrive 200 is my main amp now.

    I have the interblock 45 mounted on a pedaltrain nano hooked to a direct box that I use for a backup amp at gigs.
    I have a 67 and 68 bassman heads with a 66 2x12 cab that I gig with. I was always lugging the 2 heads around. Decided to try this so I only have to take 1 head. We mic everything up so thats why I have the direct box. I have actually used it for several gigs and it sounded and performed great. its a really good base sound to work with and plenty loud enough. I take it with me to practice and it works great for that too. Of course, it does not sound as good as my vintage fenders, but it will get the job done. I was not impressed with the overdrive it has but I just set it clean and use pedals.

    I had an Interblock 45, I used it for rehearsals and I thought it sounded great, mostly set for a good clean tone and I used my pedals through it. It definitely would have been loud enough to gig with for my needs.
    I never tried the line out, some folks seem to like it others not so much.
    I got a deal on a used MicroPro 12HD so I sold the Interblock , but I did like it a lot.
    There is a Quilter user group on Facebook you can ask there or read some posts by guys there who own them.
