Da fuq is this crap.
If I ever go digital, it will be Axe-fx based
I like the tone of the Aviator 2x10.
But it is nowhere near 100w in my mind.
I assess that it has less headroom/output than a DRRI.
Maybe they’ve moved beyond whatever technology that used, but I was stunned.
The one i saw years ago had an EVL,it sounded great, but I thought $500 was too high for a 20 year old SS amp. It was big and heavy too...
Quilter doesn't make digital amplifiers; just analog solid state amplifiers.
The Axe-fx definitely has more options and versatility than Quilter in that regard.
I understand. I like ss for one reason, to be able to play 5-10 minutes and not turn my tube amp on for such a short time.I bet in the next couple of years, they will have a combo amp, Ax-fx couple with a transparent SS amp and transparent combo cab. Game over for lots of other amplification if they pull that off first.
The reason that I went with the 101... Regarding the Axe, just run one into the effects loop of the Quilter...
to each their own, but, they are quite expensive.
How does that saying go, that you get what you pay for?
I got a 101 Mini about three years ago, and shortly after receiving it, I came to the conclusion that it's worth every penny - great construction, great tones, and consistent, reliable performance.
Let there be no debait
Bought the MicroPro Mach II with 10" driver two years ago. This thing is light (21lbs), studio flexible (lots of voicing options), built like a tank (rubber corners), sounds open (unboxy), has a fair amount of slam, likes pedals and just generally sounds really satisfying. I have yet to find any practice-small gig tube amps in the price range ($800 street) that can touch it. My Blues Jr which is stuffed full of vintage NOS tubes sounds very boxy and just can't hold a candle. I know I'm supposed to love all things tube but Patrick Quilter knows his stuff. Check one out if you get the chance. I'm not affiliated with Quilter in any way, just a very satisfied customer.
There is a 201 Tone Block under our Christmas tree...thinking about a couple of 1x12 cabinets to have options...stereo, room size, etc. Black Friday GAS ended with me having quite a selection of pedals in my guitar corner, so I am looking forward to putting it all together (+/-).
I'm getting a 201 Tone Block for Christmas. Yeehah!
Edit: Ok, that is weird...the previous post looked like it didn't go, but it did.
Next big gear purchase for me will be a SS amp--MAYBE in 2020. It'll have to be either a combo or something stompbox-sized...
Ever since i decided tone was more important than volume. The heavy amp problem disappeared. Ill take either my 5e3 or my muchxs tweaked vibrochamp runnin a 6l6 mic’d thru the pa for volume. This does all i need in a 5 piece cover bar band. Lightweight tube goodness. Soon ill have a muchxs morpheousII princeton reverb. Im a happy guy.
A Quilter 101 Mini amp and a DV Mark Neoclassic 112 small speaker cabinet.
Weighs 18.5 lbs (8.4kg) and sounds great.
I run my 101 Mini Reverb into an Eminence Wheelhouse. It's a super-efficient 12" neo speaker that can handle 150 watts. In a pine cab that's 1/3 open-backed, it weighs about sixteen pounds and sounds glorious.
I got one of the new Tone Block 202 amps a few months ago, then ran across a really good deal on a used 1-12 BlockDock cabinet that has a neo Jensen Tornado Stealth speaker.
No it doesn't sound exactly like a tube amp , but it sounds very good, is versatile, light compact, my pedals sound great through it.
It's plenty loud enough for any gig, and has line out and XLR out to run to PA if needed.
The Eminence Wheelhouse seems like it would be a great match for the Quilter amps too, for the time being I'm happy enough with the Jensen Neo
That Wheelhouse speaker looks interesting. I see there is a 15" version, too.
