That's true, but I imagine with the few very large thread we have of this capacity it puts a lot of strain on the poor old board.

I've got the Grande Pedaltrain and another smaller one (can't remember the model) and I"m now thinking about replacing the grande with a slightly smaller one but also adding another medium-large sort of board so I'd have 3 around me. Part of my issue is my Moog pedals are just plain huge and the 3 new pedals I'd like to add are also big, the Rendez Vous by Glou Glou, the Hologram Dream Sequence and the Boss SY-300. It's good to see so many new designs that are going beyond the old stuff. Too many cool pedals out there and the list just keeps growing.

You have the hard case for that grande? I have an old PP2. Was thinking of upsizing. We could trade?

Im considering converting my unused skateboard into a pedalboard for my spare stuff/a smaller version of my big boy board.

I spent a bit of cash making it this custom thing and never rode it sooooo idk. Would hate to waste the board.

Howdy fellers. Thought I'd chime in because I recently found a good deal on a used Quilter Toneblock 201 and would report on it here for those who might be interested.

It was purchased expressly as a loud/cleanish pedal platform with the hopes it could replace an Orange AD140 I've been using. I don't mind schlepping around big heavy gear (to a degree), but bonus points if I don't have to. I'm pleased to report that it really, really excels in that regard. I'm 42yo and have been doing this big-loud-dumb rock thing for a long time now, so I've had a bunch of amps for this very purpose over the years — Sound City, vintage Plexis, other Oranges, 800s, Sunns, Sovteks, etc. Not at all trying to brag, just providing some context and my sonic expectations.

I run the Quilter as part of a bi-amped rig in which I also run an early-90s Dual Rectifier (w/ no dirt pedal and set only fairly crunchy). I was concerned that it may not be able to keep up with the mountain of gear that the rest of the band uses, but now I worry that they may not be able to keep with ME, heheh. And the loudest I've dared to run it is 70watts on the master. It's really a freak of technology.

My 2¢ … if you're in the market for something like this, absolutely go for it. Now that I've had my hands on it, I would even say that they're probably even worth what they're asking new. It's kind of exciting that technology has come this far, to make a truly good sounding SS amplifier (a very subjective statement, of course). If you'd have asked me before, I would've told you that solid state amplifiers are really mostly a compromise of convenience and da tube tonez are where it's at. I suppose this is probably still the case if one is not slamming their amps with fuzz or other dirt. But if one is, the future is here!


PS: They are kind of ugly — big, horsey logos and bad construction graphics and such. But nothing some black gaffing tape doesn't help fix.

mate...firstly, welcome back...secondly, you must be in my head or something, as I have been thinking about these quilter amps. I'm in the same boat...40 and not wanting to lug around big amps all the time, especially as I also have a pedaltrain pro with case as well. I needed to hear someone with the same mindset and musical/tone taste with a view on these amps, and here you are!

The new Quilter 101 gets rave reviews on the surf rock guitar forum I frequent and those are even more rabid about vintage tube amps. All my gear has been refined down to very clean, neutral eq pedal platforms, so I've been interested in picking up at least one of their models for a while.

Dude. Let me come over and jam on it. I've been thinking about picking one of these up, but was wary about buying it without anyone having really doomed on it.

Yup. I've just been lurking lately though. Been busy selling our house and my gear has been packed up for a while, so I haven't had my mind on music much.

I've been considering a quilter 101 or 201 as well. I'm playing an Acoustic 150 right now, but it's on permanent loan - I don't really own it. I either plug a bunch of fuzz into it or slave it to a Laney Pro Tube 30 combo. I don't play loud by doom standards (more like regular-rock loud) so I bet the 101 would do the trick.

I'm really considering a Quilter too especially given the reception they've received. I just can't justify another amp right now but I'll be looking at them for the future.

i think once i sell my thunderverb, as part of the belt tightening, i might buy one of these quilter 201's. Right now there's a Sunn Beta lead for the same price, so if i sell quick then it would be the sunn, but otherwise, the Quilter is the next best thing.

I used to go there a lot. I love surf music, especially when it has a psych twist but I've pretty much given up on ever doing a surf project.
