    12" cab is $499 MSRP
    Tone Block 201 is $449 or the Pro Block is $499

    Looks cool but way more than I want to pay for it.

    I already own a toneblock 201, but $499 is a lot of money for a 1x12. I mean, I get it. Between the engineering and the Neodymium speaker.

    But I am still relatively young and it doesn't hurt my back to carry a 30 lb Harley Benton 1x12 cabinet at $135

    I am relatively old and am looking for a lightweight all in one type of rig.
    I think it's a great concept.
    Whether the price is too high,the market will soon enough let Quilter know.

    I like the look of that 1x12HD.

    It's expensive, yes, but not surprisingly so IMO. The speaker by itself is like $150... able to handle 200 watts. A Fender HR Deluxe 112 extension cab is $300 and has an 80 watt Celestion in it; the Quilter is $200 more for lighter weight and more output. The cab looks classic and I'm sure it's built much better than I could build one, but OTOH I could slap together some birch ply and pop that speaker in for under $250. It would look like a wood shop project :/ Sometimes that's my style though :D From that perspective I could see someone paying the extra to get professional quality.

    I like playing my TB 200 through a 212 personally... it weighs more, but also sounds much bigger. I've been thinking of building 2 single-twelve boxes with some Eminence drivers though.

    It looks like the DV Mark amps... I like the modular concept... but I have less money in a 1972 Deluxe Reverb after all needed maintenance.

    I hope they do well -- they're a small, USA shop so you can't expect MIC prices.

    i dig it as i only gig my quilter 101 these days but i wish it was a bit cheaper. i don't think its overpriced necessarily, but i got a nice 1x12 seismic audio cab (unloaded) on amazon for $149. i have a few speakers sitting around anyway so unloaded was all i needed (i run an eminence swamp thang in it...$75ish new). if i didn't have a speaker and didn't run pedals w/ the amp on the board, i would have considered it for sure.

    I know. I guess I just feel like the 101 head, the toneblock, problock, overdrive block, and the Bass block are all very competitively priced amps (Especially for being made in the states) The pricing on the cabs doesn't feel as competitive.

    I remember reading that the Quilter cabs were being made by a well known cab maker
    and that was the reason for the cost of the cabs.
    I can't remember at the moment who the cab maker was.
    Possibly Mather,but don't quote me.
