    Man, that sounds pretty great. I'm always intrigued by stuff like this, non-modeling simple to use sims. Then I remember I play through a SansAmp PSA 2.0, and realize all these sounds are already in there somewhere!

    I’ve searched the net to find any sellers in the uk or eu. Thomann come up in the search but draws a blank on the site.
    Do these really exist?!!!!

    Why would it have a Standby? I thought that was needed for tube amps.

    How loud are 25 Quilter Watts? Asking for a friend.

    hahah, no.
    I've got THREE Quilter amps, and they all feel blackface w varying shades of gain. The secret to good sound with these is turn them up and put a preamp in front, quite enjoyable at 1 watt or 200! :) I'm not so smitten w the 101 mini head. Its affordable but lacks the guts of the 202 and the 200, and has a limited control palate. this little box would great for desktop app into Logic Pro, wish it has USB-C

    But but but... The new Super block US is meant to be a Blonde style, along with tweed and a blackface?

    What do you think is the best preamp for this use? ;)

    This is kind of what I thought when I saw them. Line Out? Great, right into the audio interface.

    Any preamp works wonders for this amp. But alone its just kind of mehh. I just got done playing my 101 straight into a celestion creamback neo 112 cab. Only the tweed setting above 10watts moved me. We have been using this particular amp w a 115 cab for the SV1 Korg stage piano. Its awesome w the tube preamp from that keyboard

    I produce tweed prewar amps and blonde amps, point to point tube amps as we know (Ad nauseum).. no, these do not feel like blonde or tweed tube amps let alone sound like what they claim (by themselves, just add pedals and the story changes in a good way). Not bad though, very toneful and enjoyable and SUPER portable. I feel like everyone should have at least one. Quilter has proven to me for decades they are reliable and quality american made products. We used to tour around so cal w quilter power amps, sitting in the sun, bumped around in SUVs..thrown in milk carts. Never ever had problems and same is true for the Pro Blocks. If I were a touring muso, this would be in a bag at every gig and for fly dates I'd have my nocturne pedals and a quilter in a backpack. done. Will I love my tone, no.. but I wont hate it and no one else will be the wiser. a really great example is listen to Paul Pigat playing into my Bettie Blondeshell amps w mystery brain & jr barnyard, and then listen to Tommy Harkenrider going through the same nocturne pedals and the quilter into a nocturne cab (just a WGS veteran 30 in a fingerjointed solid pine cab) Tommy comes in at 00:57 w the quilter. Both guitars by my buddy Barry Grez Guitars

    I really need to hear these played by someone as incompetent as me.

    RJ Ronquillo can make a piece of twine strung between two nails sound good.

    When you talk about running a preamp with the Quilter, are running that into the front end or are you coming in through the effects loop and bypassing the onboard pre?

    no effects loop. just a pedalboard etc straight into the amp.
