Quilter Aviator Cub Guitar Combo Amplifier (50 Watts, 1x12")

Add a huge dose of vintage-flavored versatility to your rig with the Aviator Cub. Choose between authentic '60 Tweed, '62 Blonde, and '65 Blackface voicings.
The Aviator Cub represents Quilter's most advanced single-channel combo amplifier. After careful sourcing and testing, Quilter packed in three historical treasures: a '60 Tweed, a '62 Blonde, and a '65 Blackface. Unleashing them is as easy as plugging into the era you want to play in. Built for speed, the Aviator Cub is as powerful as it is lightweight and economical.

Combining forces with world-class speaker manufacturer Eminence, Quilter developed a super-sonic 12-inch speaker that delivers all of the charm of classic low powered speakers, but with 50 watt power handling; a speaker that's first in its class. Whether you're after the mid-range power of a Tweed, the throaty yet bell-like Blonde, or the scooped mid-range and silky highs of a Blackface, the Aviator Cub delivers it all without ever breaking a sweat.

"Great amp!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Was able to compare this amp with a Blackstar club 40 at an outdoor event at pretty high volumes and this thing sounded so close! To my ears it sounded better! I can not believe the clean volume this amp can achieve! Light as a feather! You will have to play with the eq to get the right results but its pretty easy to dial it in. I put treble and mids at 25% and gain bass and limiter at 12 o'clock.. The blackface input sounds really good when you're going straight into the amp. But if you're using pedals (in my case a Headrush Gigboard) the tweed seems to respond more naturally. The blonde is a little harsh but might work with the right guitar. If it's built to last (which I'm sure it is) it'll be my #1!
