David Hineline is the founder and lead guitarist for the US surf band The Kahuna Kings. The Kahuna Kings performs a splashy/drippy form of high energy traditional surf music. Whether onstage, in a recording studio, home practice or practice with the band, David chooses his Pro Block 200 for it's powerful warmth at any volume. Although David owns several vintage Fender amplifiers that he used in the past for all his surf music, he now uses his Pro Block 200. "I love the tone and that tone is so easy to dial in no matter if I am on a large stage, a small club, at home or at a recording studio". "What I want is the clean headroom and compression at the edge of breakup that is the hallmark of the traditional large surf amps of the past". "This classic surf sound required an amp volume setting that is almost intolerable in small clubs or at home practice". "The Quilter Pro Block 200 gives me that huge warm tone at any volume". This is why it's only a Quilter for me now!" "Another amazing thing for me is how well my reverb tank reacts with the Quilter". "The drip and splash is so easily pronounced through the Quilter and drip and splash are what playing surf guitar is all about". David mounted his Pro Block 200 in an old blond head cab along with not one but two G15 reverb clones along with pans. This gives him lightweight portability and he matches that with a vintage JBL D130 cab. "Another big plus for me is being to get all this tone by flipping on the amp and immediately playing". "No tubes to warm or burn up during hours of playing".
