The Quilter also has a tone that sits very well in a mix. It’s fat and clear and really sounds great with the kick drum. Really need to have it at gig volume(and in a band setting) to appreciate what it does IMO!
I concur with this, at low volumes it was cool. Once we turned it up through an Ampeg 8x10, glorious results ensued. The guys at the store were even amazed. If tax season wasn't so harsh I'd have one already. Can't wait for summer pay
Tax season was harsh and I bought one anyway haha
I bought a bass lol, couldn't swing the head too
I bet the Lehle dual band compressor would also do the trick. When I had one I found it too bright with the GK MB500 I was using, but it wasn't brittle sounding, the highs were clear and bell like. I'd guess it would sound fantastic with the Quilter.
Now that's downright rude right there
I'm all about that setup. Not to mention a BB800 on a small pedalboard with some preamplification/tone shaping that fits on top of a cab makes my form factor OCD nature REAL happy.
I’m into the super minimalist board these days. This is my primary rig...
EDIT: See post #2295 for an important update!!!
This showed up on Quilter's Facebook page a few days ago. Hope it is cool to copy & paste it here (mods can feel free to delete if it's inappropriate):
Yeah, I saw that. Glad I got mine when I did!
Finally decided what I'm running tonight. BB800, Berg NV115 x 2.
89 MIJ Fender P (Seafoam Green)
77 Aria Pro ll Precise Bass PJ load with DiMarzios.
Feeding the BB with this
Should be awesome. Big stage, so I should be able to open it up!
I wouldn't necessarily assume that things will be worse.
So is the BB800 going to be made oversea's?
This is true, but better the devil you know, and that factory is already proven for putting out quality.
It made me sad to read that Pat is working for free. I feel kind of guilty that the man himself took the time to personally respond to my emails, but he's not getting paid. In retrospect I would have gladly paid another $100-200 for each of my Quilter amps, if it would have put the company in a better financial position. Mesa Boogie for example recently raised their prices on the Subway heads, but it doesn't seem to have hurt their reputation.
Used the Quilter last night on the gig.... I'm finding that turning down the depth about a notch(11:30) and bringing up the volume to compensate, gives me more clarity up top and a growlier low end. I really like how organic sounding this head is. Its so simple to use and it just slams.
Loving mine. Everybody Talks how squishy and tube like it can get but it can also sound very clean and immediate. The way I have it set it feels like my fingers and strings are connected directly to the speaker. Great punch and quickness. This is my main electric bass amp now and it has even put my Walter Woods on backup Duty for upright Bass
So you are back in the Quilter camp? I am still loving the one I bought from you. I think I'll have it for a looooong time. So simple but just nails it. I've even scaled back by pedal board to just a tuner, compressor and a boost.
Lately I've been playing it through this - excuse the jam spot carpet!
Its a hot-rodded old Peavey 1516 - loaded with a 3015LF-4, a pair of Faital 8FE200's and revised porting to match.
Man does it sound good - clear, tight, punchy but yet deep, full and hefty
