The Quilter Labs Steelaire Series is the ultimate solution for steel players and guitarists alike who crave massive tone and incredible power.

The Steelaire Rackmount Head dishes out a massive 200 watts of power, with more than enough reserve voltage swing, into loads ranging from 2-8 ohms. It comes loaded up with selectable input channels along with powerful tone-shaping tools including a 4-band EQ and an adjustable limiter so that you can tailor your sound with precision and ease. The Steelaire Rackmount Head also comes with an onboard Tremolo effect and a fully-equipped Reverb section that features Dwell and Tone controls. It also features an effects loop with a convenient built-in 9v DC power supply to integrate your outboard effects and power them up. An isolated Direct Output allows you to connect to mixing console or PA system for recording or live performances.

The Steelaire Rackmount utilizes a patented technology that combines a fully regulated switchmode power supply and proprietary class-D power amplification with Quilter's own secret sauce to the add warmth and resolution that are normally reserved for hand-wired boutique tube amplifiers, which cost many thousands of dollars. Quilter Labs start with twice the normal input impedance to extract the maximum response from your instrument pickups. They finish with a 400 watt internal power amplifier section, which they limit to a maximum output of 200 watts for speaker compatibility. The reserve headroom lets the speaker "breathe" and deliver a bigger sound. The high input and output impedances combine with the speaker's natural frequency response curve to deliver even more tone than you thought possible, together with amazing amounts of unstressed power to your choice of speakers. Put simply, there is nothing like it. Footswitch sold separately.

Great rackmount amplifier for Pedal Steel, Fiddle or Guitar


This is my second Quilter Steelaire and it sounds great. I still own one of the first models and it works flawlessly. Easy to EQ, great reverb, just an overall good aplifier with a very managable weight. This amp is loud, thanks to Sam Ash for the fast delivery time.
