This is now the fourth Quilter I own. They're all great sounding, but this has the right combination of features and performance for me.
Very low noise, even at high gain settings, which indicates the quality components inside and smart engineering for quality first.
Love the limiter for controlled clean tones and for protecting speakers
Reverb is very lush and versatile yet simple to use
Tone controls are very effective once you learn how to work with them
I enjoy the looks on people's faces when they HEAR this tiny thing through the tiny 2x8" cab I use. It looks unthreatening and harmless... reminds me of that Monty Python scene... "I tried to warn you.. but Nooo, it's just a little F@$kin bunny you said!"
If you're a JAZZer, look no further. This is much more portable yet less expensive than all the boutique amps I've ever used. I use both the two by eight speaker rig AND the HD 1 x 12" HD rig. Both are super light and sound amazing. The 12 inch is very clean, neutral, not "shouty."
If you want to ROCK, just power your favorite cab with this little monster!
I've used it with Marshal 4 x 12, Celestion 2 x 12, a custom 2 x 10 and a small line array.
The Balanced XLR out has a very nice speaker emulation, so you can go direct to-house with no microphone hassles. That has come in handy at venues where we must play at low stage volume, yet management wants to pipe the sound through several rooms of a restaurant. It's also neat on big outdoor gigs. The sound guy usually seems happy because he can't imagine how my guitar would be too loud, and he gets a direct out instead of a mic with bleed. Then the fun begins!
As a session player, I would have KILLED to have something this strong and great sounding traipsing around LA 40 years ago. It's the best little amp I've ever seen. Just incredible.
