The MicroPro 200 ten uses the warmth and dynamics of the G10 vintage speaker. If you want slightly subdued highs, and dynamic, chewy midrange tone then this is a good pick. With it's 10 degree slant back and wide dispersion you still get good coverage even standing only a few feet away. If you already love the tone of a ten inch speaker but wish you could get more low end out of it, then this is definitely your amp. The sealed back configuration gives beautiful depth and power but still maintains the beautiful articulate sound of a good ten inch speaker.

Loud Clean Tone
The MicroPro features 400 watts of headroom, internally limited to 200 watts of continuous output. The extra headroom allows more warmth and brilliance, resulting in "bigger, cleaner watts". Electric and acoustic guitars sound big and full with sparkling highs and soaring sustain. The MicroPro 200 is a perfect canvas for emulators and effects and takes overdrive pedals very well.
Rich, Expressive Overdrive
The MicroPro's overdrive tone is rich with natural harmonics and responds eagerly to your playing dynamics, allowing for more expression and feel. The Presence control adjusts post-master highs for mellow or sizzling overdrive tone.
Switchable Two Channel Operation
Using the Mode switch, you can switch between the clean channel (Ch 1) and the overdrive channel (Ch 2) with its full range of boost, voicing and master volume functions. Independent master volume controls allow you to set the balance between the channels.
Authenticity with Adjustability
Vintage amplifiers often achieve amazingly warm, authentic tone with little or no equalization. The Quilter uses similar input and output impedances, resulting in the same "inherently authentic" response with the tone controls on 50%. Then Quilter adds a fully active 3-band Bass, Mid and Treble equalizer, thus combining the warmth and natural sound of early amps with the flexible voicing of modern amps. Unlike traditional "tone stacks" the controls are truly neutral at 50%, so any adjustments start from a good foundation.
Multiple Boost Options
A preset boost can be engaged by adjusting the selector switch, or by using the footswitch. The adjustable Boost control determines the gain jump, and the selector switch offers four boost voicings.
Scoop Boost: Low and high frequencies are emphasized with a scooped midrange, resulting in more chime and body without excessive midrange distortion.
Multiple, Selectable Effects Options
Bright Boost: A fat treble boost increases bark and bite for an aggressive slashing overdrive.
Loud Boost: Boosts all frequencies, for a straightforward increase in overdrive and saturation.
Hot Boost: Boosts overdrive to the max,and filters the resulting distortion to emphasize highs and lows, for a full-bore assault on the senses.
The Micropro not only offers a full platter of traditional on-board effects, but brings new life to outboard pedal collections.
Reverb (Level, Dwell, and Path)
A premium digital reverb chip offers superior clarity and dynamic range. Exclusive analog voicing captures the bright, airy sound of a vintage reverb tank, without the mechanical limitations and feedback problems of spring reverbs. The Level control ranges from subtle to "drenched". The Dwell control adjusts the decay time from a short "klonk" to a beautifully prolonged "heavenly choir". The Path switch allows the reverb to be assigned to four different locations in the signal chain for maximum flexibility and control of dynamic range. The footswitch bypasses the signal going into the reverb, so the natural decay time is not interrupted.
The Tremolo rate adjusts from a very slow swell to a rapid pulsing. The depth is preset to match the most popular recorded examples, allowing for simple one-knob adjustment.
Voicing Modes (Mini, Tweed, Classic)
Each of these selections adjusts the amp's overall response and distortion characteristics, ranging from tiny "cigar-box" amplifiers, compact low-power vintage amps from the 50's, or popular full-size combo amps from the 60's. The settings may be used as foot-switchable effects, or left engaged as a full-time "personality".
Overdrive pedals may continue to be used between the amp and guitar, with notably improved dynamic
