Here’s a surprise package – a solid state amp that sounds really good - great actually.
Throughout the 70's many brands worked hard to recreate that valve sound using solid state circuitry and none of them actually accomplished it. There were hybrids (Music Man & others) that were good but nothing 100% valve free that really worked – until now.
Pat Quilter made a name for himself in amplification many years ago via his respected QSC amps used primarily in large AV installations and concert PA systems. Some years ago he took on the challenge of applying his extensive design experience to the goal of creating a great sounding guitar amp without valves. This amp is the result of that quest – one of a line of quality “valve-sounding” lightweight amps from Quilter USA.
From Quilter USA -
The Aviator Series is much more than just a pretty face. It represents all the advantages and refinements of our MicroPro Mach 2 amplifier series but wrapped in a more traditional styling.
Refinements on the Aviator Gold series include advanced noise reduction and a wider throttle for deeper and chunkier distortion. Be prepared for what awaits. The all new Aviator Gold amplifier is a game changer for players looking for a good pedal platform those who want open back performance or anyone wanting tube like performance without all the weight and inherent unreliability.
This is the amp you want to throw in the saddlebag of your Harley and roar off into the night with. Partly because it will fit there and partly because it has what it takes to get the job done when you get there.
Boasting a sealed enclosure and a full range 8" pro audio driver from Celestion's high end pro audio catalogue the Aviator Gold 8 will blow you away with breath-taking tone and power that goes on surprising you day after day gig after gig.
