Steelaire Series | Quilter Performance Amplification Quilter Labs

The Steelaire is a powerful solution for steel guitarists, or anyone looking for the power and incisiveness of this clean dream machine.

Starting with the classic JBL D130 as a tone standard, Pat Quilter worked closely with Eminence to develop a powerful and beautiful sounding speaker, best described as an "Orange Creamsicle", with a creamy full body and a crispy tangy bite.

The Steelaire Series gives the steeler or any guitarist a range of options, from the simplicity and power of the Steelaire Rackmount, to the pack-and-go portability of the Steelaire Combo, to the Swiss Army knife of the Steelaire Pro, designed for top players to use in the studio or on the road!

On tour with some of the biggest names of music today. Chad Jeffers (Carrie Underwood), Sasha Ostrovsky (Darius Rucker), Tim Sergent (Dierks Bentley), Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters), Randle Currie (Brad Paisley), Ward Williams (Randy Houser), Greg Leisz (Clapton, John Mayer, Alan Jackson), Travis Toy (Rascal Flatts) David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), and more!

With multiple configurations to meet the needs of any guitarist or steeler the Steelaire is the ultimate solution for the discerning player. This may well be the world's best 15" clean dream machine!
