    That's one serious music store. I could stare at that wall for hours.
    HNAD, love them quilters!

    It's the Guitar Center in Bridgeton. They have a decent selection and every staff member I've met there was knowledgeable (one is a little too much of a salesman for my tastes). I've been wanting a Quilter for a while and was even talking to @Tracy74 about maybe getting one via him but hesitated. I think if I can sell this and one other piece of gear I'll ask him about a Quilter Cabinet to pair this with.

    This thing sounds really good clean and lightly overdriven. Haven't tried it with pedals yet.

    Sounds pretty good! Amazing what you can get out of those tiny heads and how many things it's loaded with. I don't think I've ever heard anything bad about Quilter amps.

    And the fact that they're tiny is incredibly useful. I don't gig (might start) but I've traveled a lot and lived in many countries. This is perfect for what I've wanted and needed in the past.

    Unbelievable that such a tiny little amp head is 200 watts!

    Nice score - those are definitely a lot of amp in a small amount of space. I was going to ask if you have pricetags on everything else in your house ;)

    Yeah, it's way more than I need and easily enough to destroy the only cabinet I have (which I think is rated to 120 watts). I'll have to be careful with that.

    I love that grin as you look at the camera around the 30 second mark. Congrats and play it in great health.

    My Quilter 101R loves pedals, this should too. Congrats on the score! If you haven’t seen them yet, the block dock series cabs are pretty neat looking.

    Yeah, they are but they strike me as a bit of a gimmick. I'll probably just use the Attitube cab I still have (my only cab) until I get a good deal on something easier to carry (i.e., the quilter cabs are advertised as being lightweight and sounding bigger than they really are).

    And all you need is a spare $4K (if my memory serves correctly).

    Just tried playing metal in C standard on this thing. It definitely works for what I need it to do high gain wise.

    Nice! Haven’t seen any vids of it doin real high gain stuff. Nice to know. Should sound great boosted like the 101R too.

    Is it supposed to be Dumble-esque?

    No one ever says Dumble, presumably for trademark reasons, but that's the impression I got looking at the advertisements after I bought it. Saying something is supposed to sound like a Dumble is tricky, because whose Dumble are talking about? Dumble is famous for working with an artist to customize an amp to how they play and what they want out of the amp. I think it would follow that Dumbles made for different artists should sound somewhat different. It sounds good to me, but I definitely find the sounds getting better as I learn to dial it in to get different sounds. The EQ knobs are really responsive, the lead/crunch channels can be blended, and the master knob actually controls the headroom. All this makes this tonally flexible. It's possible to get a wide range of sounds, some of which I like and some of which I don't.

    The controls are better on that. That whole TriQ thing is too difficult to get my head wrapped around. I wanted the 101 but ended up with the Vox MV50 Clean because it was less and I did not need the extra wattage and the TriQ knobs. I am just soooo old school when it comes to amps. BTW Congrats!!!

    Very cool!

    I was toying with the idea for buying a Crate Power Block to drive my leslie cab and mounting it to my pedal board.
