Quilter OverDrive 200 Guitar Amp Head

The Quilter OverDrive 200 Guitar Amplifier Head is inspired by legendary and almost unobtainable amplifiers, bringing an iconic overdrive sound within reach of the average musician. The dynamic 200 watt Quilter Tone Block power section is combined with a traditional "Tone Stack" EQ section to form a classic clean channel, along with multiple switchable drive sections providing several explosive overdriven tones.

Versatile & Compact:

For the first time, Quilter has managed to house four distinct tones in their popular Block style enclosure.

Clean Channel:

The big brother to the 101 Reverb. "Tone Stack" EQ section married with an active Mid control for a wide range of high headroom clean tone.

Crunch Channel:

A preset Mid Scoop is engaged for a tight mid-gain tone. EQ controls are defeated and the Drive Channel*s Gain and Output are activated so the desired saturation and volume balance can be easily achieved.

The Lead Channel shares the EQ setting with the Clean Channel to avoid a dramatic shift in tone between voicing's. The gain structure is based on rare and collectable early cascading gain stage amplifiers.

Engaging both the Lead and Crunch channel delivers the high gain tone of the Lead Channel and removes the EQ from the circuit for an unrefined heavy tone. In short, this is the most versatile amplifier in its class!

The Overdrive 200 accepts a standard two position footswitch with or without LED*s (not included). We have included an adhesive label with every Overdrive 200 so that you can label your pedal.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
Written by one of our gear experts!
Sound: First off, this thing definitely sounds good, don't let any review make you think otherwise. That said, it doesn't quite sound like a tube amp. It feels, plays, and takes pedals like a tube amp, but there is something a little bit different about it. I would us the word "stiff" or "dry" to describe it. This results in superior note definition, even with a lot of gain. People who like "tight" dirt sounds will also find a lot to like about it. All but one of the channels sound very good, but the amp really comes alive with a good overdrive in front of it like a tube screamer or similar. This amp would be worth the price with just the clean channel, but the OD channel is like having 2 in one. THIS IS NOT A HIGH GAIN AMP. Do not expect this to sound like a Mesa or 5150 on its own. Maxed out, this sounds like a modded JCM 800 or Peavey Valve King. You can do metal and the like with a set of very loud pickups, but you will need a pedal to get to true heavy territory. This amp will also tell you how good (or not so good) your pickups are. Great pickups sound godlike with tons of harmonics, feedback, sustain, etc, and mediocre pickups sound wooden, dull, and lifeless. If you've got an import guitar be sure to load it with some aftermarket pickups, otherwise you're going to think this is a lackluster amp. Feature: Second of all, this thing is loud. I mean really loud. Completely crushed 120 watt tube amps volume-wise and then some. Next Quilter I buy will be a 100 watt deal because this was more than loud enough for my very loud band. Want to hear what your cab really sounds like? Hit it with this thing on the clean channel. It also has three channels. They are confusing to use at first. Essentially, there are two lights, one that says crunch and one that says lead. Both lights off is clean, it sounds great and starts to get dirty around 8 and is a good, dynamic crunch at 10. Very Fender-y with a vintage Marshall flavor once you get the level up there. The lead light on is the overdrive channel. You get a master volume (on top of the real master volume) and the character of the amp changes to a more straight-up Marshall type character. Gain usable all the way up to 10 which is like Iron Maiden territory. Push both and you get a crunch mode with no EQ. It's a slightly different saturation profile and has an EQ scoop that is just too deep to be useful in a live setting. I never use it. FX loop is a given for an amp like this, and the footswitch is a great add-on that makes this amp worth twice as much. The direct out and headphone out do not have an impulse response/cab model on them, so they are not super useful for home practice or live use which is what I thought these features were for. If you are playing at home I guess you can put it into your computer and use your own impulse response but at that point you should just be using a software amp Ease of Use: This is pretty easy to get to sound great, as long as you are on one of the regular/non-crunch channels. Gain and volume knobs totally useable at any setting, but the farther the EQ knobs get from 5 the less good they sound. Overall they are a little too drastic. The midrange for each is a little "wide" so it turns muddy or completely missing from the mix a few clicks off of 5. I would have been more down for a thinner eq profile so I could have more useful settings. Low you can cut all the way down to 2 or 3 and high you can crank to about 7 or 8. You don't have to worry about it being able to tame a boomy or bright rig. Set everything at noon and rip- this isn't the sort of amp where you should be worrying about stuff like this too much. Quality: Says made in USA and I believe it. Seems built tougher than some of my other gear which cost twice as much. I would feel comfortable with it on a pedalboard or throwing it down a flight of stairs right before a gig. Value: This is one of their more expensive heads and it's still under $600. I don't think there is anything else under $1000 that will give you the same combo of volume and two good sounding clean/dirt channels. Even then, anything that could compete would be huge, heavy, and fragile. If you like to bring just a gig bag to your gigs, this is the way to go. Also, this comes with it's own bag! A very good bag designed for these amps too Manufacturer Support: Apparently easy to get in touch with and they will go pretty far for you. Also you can get the owner on the line to troublehsoot things if the other staff can't figure it out. Very few companies where you can say this, and none where the CEO is a legend in pro audio like Pat Quilter. The Wow Factor: I got this for ease in gigging/practices and for fly-ins. I haven't missed my tube amps when I'm using it. Overall: See the more detailed review below

Overall: If I could only play half a good as this head is. DO NOT let the size or the lack of tubes sway your decision. Cleans are clean and the Lead, Crunch, Lead + Crunch are awesome!!!!!!!! This is especially nice because I only play at home and don't have to sizzle my tubes to get to good tones. I'm as beginner/amateur as it gets but I am true audiophile. Running this thru an EVH 2x12 cab and WOW!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to try pedals.
