Just unveiled at NAMM..
Quilter MicroPro Mach 2
I'd like to hear it with less reverb.
Damn they did well with this. Now this is an amp with less than 3-4 channels I'd dig.
Not sure why this is in the modeling section ???
I should have put it in the Amp section. I'm just so used to coming here…
Here's a better thread…
I dug the voicings & layout on that.
Wonder if the xlr out has speaker sim.
Sounds like a slap echo on it
My gut tells me that I won't like this much more than say, a Roland Cube. However - given the praise these get, coupled with the quality of their maker... I think I might really like one. I'd love to demo one of these amps, but I've yet to see a Quilter in person.
I'm fairly sure the answer is yes, but I can't (quickly, I admit) find the info on their site. I do know that I've used the xlr out of my MP200s to record them and I've always been very happy with the result. It sounds like the amp, is all I can say.
The more I look at the quilters the more I think I'd be better off with a toneblock and pedal pre's.
Nice job Quilter! That's an amp I'd be interested in....
This looks like a straight up solid state amp. Is there some digtal/modelingness going on here that is relevant?
It'd be nice to have a fat Twin clean, but what is there sounds damn good.
The cleans and gritty tones are nice and natural. The distortion sounds very JC-120 ish. Very reserved, very tame... Is the plan to be sure that nobody that rocks out has any interest in a Quilter?
I have both and greatly prefer the Quilter…by a wide margin. In fact, I got the Quilter because I felt the Cube 60 sounded sterile and boxy. The MicroPro is neither.
If you want "your tone" I agree. For me, the magic in the MicroPro is in the clean and overdrive tone. For crunch or high gain I go to my pedals.
No. I was just sharing this with my DMG section peeps. I think it would make a great mini-monitor for a modeler.
I think the higher gain tones are so subjective that you're better off using pedals for that and the MicroPro takes pedals exceptionally well.
With my Megalith Delta plugged into it I've got all of the modern high gain metal tones I'll ever need, or a BB Preamp for Marshall type crunch, but let's face it, I don't think this amp would appeal to someone whose idea of tonal nirvana comes out of a Diezel anyway. I can't really imagine Cannibal Corpse stepping out on stage playing through MicroPros.
The distortion is a bit more open in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrXq7XHi554
Yeah, definitely gotta go to Pedalsville for gainy tones.
Anybody get a chance to play one of these yet? My dealer is understandably waiting to order one until he sells the last Micropro v.1.
Yes, I and several others have. There are also a few threads on this amp in the "Amps and Cabs" area.
I have a Toneblock & have been having a blast playing it with a DLS pedal, but I'm seriously thinking about flipping it and getting the Mach 2 head.
Just to be pedantic, Quilter amps aren't digital or modelers; they are solid state amps.
