Discontinued (See dealers for availability)

The Steelaire Pro:

is the ideal solution for the touring/recording professional. Packed with features aimed at maximizing artistic excellence, both on stage and in the studio, it is meant for the discerning professional who needs more flexibility while maintaining the light weight and effortless power that Quilter amplifiers are renowned for. Designed by Pat Quilter and tested by some of the world's best players over tens of thousands of road miles, the Steelaire uses the latest audio technology to take the next big leap in high output steel guitar and electric guitar amplification.

To this we added a 3-inch aluminum voice coil and hyperbolic cone to assure outstanding frequency response, power handling, and freedom from breakup. As a finishing touch, a 4 inch aluminum dome adds a hint of sweet metallic tang, resulting in a creamy full bodied tone with a citrus-y finish. The cabinet is the result of a lengthy series of tone tests conducted with top professional players from coast to coast.

The slimline cabinet is easy to carry and requires minimal space on stage. The front mounted speaker, combined with our calibrated cabinet dimensions, provides maximum clarity of mids and highs, while delivering big clean lows. Our panel of experts frequently need to get on and off stage in less than a minute, so we provided internal room for accessory stowage, and cable routing slots that keep everything tucked safely away.

The slimline Steelaire chassis delivers a full 200 watts, with plenty of reserve voltage swing, into the 4 ohm speaker. With selectable input channels, a 4 band EQ, an adjustable limiter, tremolo, and a full-service reverb section, you get a full tool kit to optimize the sound of your instrument. In addition, a unique back panel effects loop with 9 volt DC supply allows you to wire in accessory pedals of your choice, and control them remotely, using one of our 6 position remote controls. (Leg mount remote, or foot controller, available separately.)
