The MicroPro 200 eight inch guitar amplifier is hard to describe and is almost something you have to experience to believe. Even then you might still think your ears are deceiving you. Never before has so much power, dynamics, articulation, harmonics and beauty come from anything so small and light.

Weighing in as the lightest of all Quilter combos, but don't underestimate this little guy. The speaker was carefully chosen from Celestion's top end pro audio catalog for its remarkable range and unyielding power. Just a few notes played and you will be astonished. It easily keeps up with most 40-60 watt twelve inch tube amps but often sounds much better and truly delivers on the promise on modern technology. If you want lightweight, infinite tonal possibility, and a seemingly never ending array of configuration possibility.
This is the amp for you. Want to plug in your acoustic and a mic and use it as a portable PA? Go right ahead. It will shine as much as it does when you are laying into it ripping solos out. This may well be the most potential ever realized in a guitar amplifier. Pick the MicroPro 200 8 inch if you want the lightest amp possible, if you plan to use an acoustic and a microphone, or if you want the most open tone.
The MicroPro 200 has a Celestion eight inch speaker at 100 watts per channel. It weighs in at 19 pounds and comes standard with a padded ballistic nylon slip cover and a two position foot controller.
A The smallest and lightest(19 lbs.) of Quilters MicroPro combos, the MicroPro 200 has a clean, neutral tone with a balance and clarity that makes it suitable for vocals as well as electric and acoustic guitars. Don't let the small size fool you; the sound is unbelievably big and full.
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 or the optional foot controller, 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".
