Hey guys,

I'm looking into quilter amps.

Testing out the Micropro HD with 12" speaker. I was hoping someone on here knows if the speaker from the Micropro (Not HD) was more harp friendly. Looking for a little more crunch than I can get out of the HD.
Also looking to maximize volume before feedback, playing with a rock band with 2 overdriven guitars...If you've ever been in that position you know what I'm talking about.

Using a LW Harp Shield and carbon copy delay.
Trying to dial in a Boss GE7 EQ but I don't really know what to do with it.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks!!
Tom

I had a Micro Pro HD.
Worked well for harp.
Slightly lighter than the alternative and I would recommend it over the Non-HD.
I have switched to the Tone Block 202 however.
It is a bit simpler, works well and the multitude of voicings on the Micro Pro seem not very useful for harp.
I generally used the Full Q.
A word of caution though, make sure all your selections are fully in the applicable detent(s) on the switches.
I was on stage, band had started playing, and NO sound out of the amp> Played through the vocal mic until i realized what happened. A bit embarrassing.
The Celestion Neo speaker in the HD is meant to be kind of neutral I think, due to all the options.
I use an Eminence Wheelhouse 150 with the Tone Block 202, which works well for harp. A bit pricey though.
I found the Micro Pro to to be a bit more feedback prone than the Tone Block, but not by lot.
I used the Lone Wolf Mojo Pad Deluxe on the 10db setting when I felt the need.
In the end it's really what you like. After all it;s your money.

Thanks Tblues1.
Was the Micro Pro the 12" or the 8' of 10" speaker?...I'm wondering how much difference it would make.

The one I'm trying out is 12".

It was the 12HD.
I would recommend the 12, but by all means try the others if you feel so inclined.
I would also recommend one of the Block amps over the Micro Pro, but either works well.
Both have their plusses and minuses.
You could probably save a few bucks with a Block amp and a Block Dock.

To avoid feedback turn the mids down all the way to start and then tweak judiciously for your desired tone.
All the best!
