Title: Quilter OverDrive 202 - palm sized amp with rock concert sound
Post by: joecool85 on August 07, 2020, 09:03:39 PM
Quilter has announced their new OverDrive 202, actually it was back in June but I somehow missed this one.  Anyway, it's a 200watt, 2 channel, pedalboard-sized monster.  I'd love to have one, that's for sure!  MSRP at $575 means I won't be seeing it any time soon though.

Not sure what's inside, but it sounds good!  That said, it sure is expensive.

The granting of that patent is an absolute disgrace and shows that the patent examiner had bugger all idea of what is routinely being done in guitar amps.
