The next generation of the ToneBlock 200 is here! Packing up to 200 watts of power into a 4 pound, ultra-compact (about the size of a double wide effects pedal) amp head, the ToneBlock 201 comes with all the features of the 200 and more! The Quilter Labs ToneBlock 201 comes equipped with a TRI-Q EQ control, a HI-CUT knob, an onboard FX loop that's conveniently located at the front of the head, and a VOICE control with five distinct settings for added tonal variety. Other features include a wide range Gain control, a hi impedance input, Quilter's proprietary Direct out, dual 1/4" mono outputs for variable loads (16 to 4 ohms), a universal power supply that allows this amp to be plugged in anywhere in the world without the need for transformers or switches, and a locking power cable.

Useful: The most power you have ever experienced in the smallest possible package. From the pedalboard to the rack, the Tone Block delivers on the promise of lightweight, next generation Quilter tone in the most diminutive of packages.

Practical: From the Quilter proprietary direct out to the jaw dropping tube-like tone, never before has so much clean headroom been put into such a practical application. Set it up with your pedals or your rack mount effects to achieve incredible results effortlessly.

Versatile: Use it anywhere, in any setting. It is everything you love about tube tone without the tradeoffs or hassles. Plug it in there in the studio through the direct out to record late at night. Then crank it into your favorite cabinets at the gig. All the while without giving up on your tone, your way through the front end you already love. Or just bring it along as a backup. Either way, there is no end to the ways the Tone Block has your back at every gig, every night, any place on the face of the earth.

This is a great solid state amp that has a tube sound.


I have owned my TB 201 for about 4 months. I run a 2x12 cab with Eminence Patriot Red, White and Blues speakers. My pedal board is a Visual Sound Volume Pedal -> MXR 6 band EQ -> CMAT MODS Signa Compressor -> Amp 11 Drive -> Hall Of Fame Reverb -> into the front of the amp. I am so happy with this amp. I bought this amp because at the time I could not afford a Twin Reverb and I needed something with some clean volume. I read reviews and watched YouTube and found this to be the most bang for the buck. Now I am thinking about buying another one for a back up and forgetting about getting a Twin. This is built solid and I doubt I will need a backup but I like to be prepared. I have ran it pretty hard for 4 months without any problems. This is a solid state amp and it needs to be treated like one. I NEVER let my pedals boost the front end of the amp. I think that is crucial to getting the most out of this amp. The controls are really useful even though there are only a few. You get a wide range of tones. I use my pedals to dial it in the rest of the way. It takes pedals really well too. I had questions and Pat Quilter got back to me quickly and was very helpful. I have owned SS amps and tube amps and I believe this is the best solid state amp I have played.

It is an outstanding amp.


Overall I could not be more pleased with this amp. Like many other pieces of equipment it is all in the way you use it. My goal was to use this as a power amp with the tone of a tube amp. Mission accomplished! This amp rocks. Because it can push 200 watts you will have more than enough headroom for your sound. I use this with a Boss GT 100 for my sounds. This is my main gigging set up. The amp itself works great with external effects. I would say the effects are essential to getting the sound you want. Whether you have a classic distortion or a nice clean chorus/delay this amp will not disappoint. The sounds is crystal clear. I was surprised by how good the amp sounded on it's own. Then add the desired effects and it is a great amp set-up for gigging. Give it a try! You won't be disappointed.

Clean, powerful tone that's pedal ready!


It's ridiculous how good this amp sounds. Crystal clean tones, all the power u need, and accepts pedals perfectly. I use this in my studio with pedals or for all my clean tone needs.
