    I like that cab, looks cool... the grill though, look too closed, like there aren't enough holes (or these are too small) to feel the blown wind from the speakers...

    This finally happened. I need to find my pedalboard to get that mess up top sorted out but damn this thing rules. I'm about as well off as I can be for amps now (Triple rec, Ironheart, 5150iii, 5150ii and Axe FX II XL for everything else. ) Very happy with how this has all come together.

    That's beautiful. My old roommate and I once went in on a peavey PA from. That Era with two 412 cabs arranged vertically. That thing sounded SO good with bass or guitar. Really warm and fat.

    Technically not part of the guitar rig, but I got this Marshall bluetooth speaker as an early birthday present from my girlfriend and parents, and it blends in nicely with the rest of my stuff!

    As I'm sure you guys can relate, things are always changing. Here's what it is today.

    My new Itty bitty rig

    IMG_20171127_160559_1511820469856.jpg

    Found out about this quilter just recently. Same principle as the EHX 44 Magnum (little power amp that fits on your pedal board) except it is cheaper and has some on-board tone controls. Decided it would be a good power amp to use when fooling with diy pedals so I picked one up.

    First impressions :
    - LOUD AS HELL
    - Bassy. Not necessarily boosted, but it seems to extend all the way down, frequency response wise. My 8 string has never ever sounded meatier than when I ran it through these two pedals. Even playing clean with no HM300 and a six string there was noticeable bass response.

    I like it.

    Aren't those Quilters a blast? I shot one of the demo videos that's on the Quilter website...and was flabbergasted when I put it through a 4x12.

    Was it this one?

    If so, god damn you've got some chops.

    Edit: no, you're this one. Also a good vid.

    Does it still stay clean the more you turn the volume up? The Magnum 44 broke up after a certain point, I wondered if the Microblock remains relatively clean? Or is there breakup like the 44?

    I haven't cranked it high enough to tell yet. I'll get back to you.

    Well I don't have a good way to test the SPL vs distortion but I can share my observations at least.

    I plugged my ibanez (air zone selected) directly in and played. Turned the master all the way up and gradually turned up the gain. It stayed clean for the first probably 80 to 90 percent of the gain knob travel, before developing some overdrive.

    Other observations :
    - The Tri-Q affects the volume (or at least perceived loudness) by a lot. Makes sense, given it changes mid frequency levels in the first half.
    - pretty sure it can get louder if you drive it with an overdrive or distortion pedal than of you plug straight in. Probably just because you get extra saturation.
    - overall i like it a lot but I think it will definitely benefit from some tone shaping in front. I haven't found an amazing clean tone just plugged straight in yet. But I haven't used it a ton yet either.

    Thanks for the insights mate, I have my eye on one and wondered how clean a platform it would be to have an Ibanez Sonic Distortion in front of it with the gain on the Microblock all the way down, but the volume relatively high.

    Thanks :)

    If you want clean, dime your level knob and use the gain knob as your volume knob.

    Figured that would be the way forward, Microblock seems like the ideal solution for me.
