As the owner of a Quilter 101 amp, the Quilter MicroBlock amp caught my eye at the show. Purportedly using the same Class D design as the Tone Block series in a pedal enclosure, I'm curious to see how far 45 watts of solid state will get me. Lacking only the Voice and High cut controls, it will be interesting to hear what Quilter Amps decided was "their" voice now that they had to stip down to the basics. I'm especially curious to see if this, plus a cabinet emulator pedal, are convincing enough to make "everything on the board" a sonically viable option for guitar players tired of lugging giant amplifier stacks but not quite willing to go digital.

 

I'll be doing an Expert Review on the Micro Block 45 in the near future to find out! In the meantime, this was my pick of the show. Enjoy the video clip Dendy shot by on the show floor....
