    Real world power at any voltage
    Using high power technology developed for world-class pro audio touring, the Bass Block 800 delivers effortless reserves of power to maintain tight control of the speaker without clipping or bottoming out. The universal-voltage power supply delivers smooth and powerful response regardless of “club voltage” surges. The amp works on any voltage, anywhere. Plug it in, turn it up, enjoy the effortless beauty of the tone!

    The most "musical" bass head ever?
    Pat Quilter’s first amp was built in 1967 for his brother’s bass player, and great bass tone remains a key passion. The modern bass is a full-range instrument, with much different dynamic requirements than electric guitar. Low frequencies require more horsepower to move air, and the instrument demands percussive response without bottoming out or obtrusive limiting. The Bass Block provides 800 “real watts” to build on, and the preamp is optimized to make the best use of that power, providing more effective headroom with less stress on the speakers. Unique bass-specific EQ controls allow the bassist to quickly dial in a wide range of tones to match any instrument, and a special 2-stage limiter prevents bottoming out without suppressing dynamic response and feel.

    A Master control allows the peak power point to be adjusted to safely power any size of speaker, from giant stacks down to compact studio units. A prolonged field testing program has confirmed that every component in the Bass Block 800 is focused on creating the ultimate musical instrument for bass players. You will feel it every moment of every gig. Effortless, powerful, and exacting tone at your fingertips. The ultimate tool in your arsenal.

    Impressive features, but not my sound
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Legit 800 watts and weighs only 3.7#. Carrying case is cool. Very easy to operate. Doesn't have the standard EQ, which is refreshing. Very impressed with the master volume, with watts shown on the dial. Very intelligent design. Only thing that didn't suit me was that it could use a bit of grind. This head would be excellent for anything that isn't overdriven. Price is in line with other heads of this type.

    Best bass head I ever had
    What is your opinion of this product?
    In 38 years of professional bass playing I've used about every head out there and the Quilter blows them away. Easy to dial in the tone you need, powerful small transparent sound can't beat it
