Quilter 101 Reverb Mini Portable Guitar Amplfier Head
It's no secret that here at Wembley Music Centre we love Quilter amps, and the original 101 Mini was the very start of our love affair. We loved the incredibly light weight of the amp (you can literally hold it on the palm of your hand) and more than than the stunning clean tones you can produce from the head, and also the responsiveness and supreme output it had when played with even an enormous pedalboard! So we were super excited that Quilter have now introduced all of those features with the addition of a stunning reverb and limiter.
This fully analog amp presents 50w of exciting tonal options to players who love the convenience of a VERY lightweight amp and require a superb sounding reverb. With a single knob to control the effect, it couldn't be simpler to adjust the amount of glorious echoey 'verb. Set at low to produce the lightest, super subtle effect, or crank to the max for the full blown cathedral style reverb, it's an exceptionally dynamic built in effect that'll work on stage or in the studio.
Furthermore, you'll be able to shape your tone to precise accuracy with the 3-band EQ and produce amazing tone suitable for any style or genre of your choosing.

- This is an excellent little amp, with a superb clean, balanced sound. I've 'had it' with carrying massively heavy tube amps such as the Twin Reverb, so I was delighted when I heard demonstrations of this Quilter head on Youtube. Tim Lerch has a lovely sound when he plays through his usual Fender Princeton Reverb, but as he says the tone stack in the Quilter enables him to match that sound without valves (tubes). I'm currently playing my Strat, Tele & Eastman Archtop through this amp into a 12" Fane speaker in an open back cab from the 1980's - it sounds beautiful. The tone controls offer a wide variety of sounds, the digital reverb is really sweet, and the effects loop works perfectly with my TC Electronic Flashback X4. In fact the amp also takes pedals placed in front of the input really well, and if you want to you can wind the gain up against the master volume to get Blackface-type breakup and overdrive - if that's what you want. This is no heavy-metal amp, but if like me you are after lots of headroom and a clean balanced sound with similar characteristics to a Princeton Reverb and more, then this is an excellent choice. The amp is on the pricey size, but then sterling is low against the dollar at present, and Patrick Quilter is making some great little innovative amps. (Posted on 18/06/2017)
