The OverDrive 202 guitar head combines the best features of prior 200-series models with many new enhancements. It delivers serious tone for the discerning metalist or any guitarist looking for that pricey yet unreachable tone. Despite its small size and streamlined controls, this little powerhouse can replace almost any stage amp ever made.

The INPUT has a high impedance for maximum pickup response. The OverDrive Channel GAIN adjusts a wide range of signals from clean to overdrive. Turning up the LIMITER progressively cushions overdrive distortion while maintaining low-level sustain and is effective on both channels. The OUTPUT sets a level that is also controlled by the MASTER VOLUME. On the Clean Channel, a traditional 3-BAND EQ provides full control of the instrument’s tonal balance and affects both the Clean and OverDrive channel. A VOICE switch selects 3 distinct personalities that can be further adjusted with the wide-range EQ controls. VOICE 1 is a flat response with added treble sparkle. VOICE 2 provides a unique bell-like tone, and VOICE 3 channels the classic “blackface” mid-scoop. Each of these voices lends a distinct sound to their respective Overdrive voices.

The VERB is post FX LOOP and expands your sound stage with a nicely voiced wash of smooth decay. The MASTER control adjusts the breakup threshold of the clean channel from 0 to 200 watts, offering clean headroom and/or rich layered overdrive at will. The SIG OUT is a dual purpose TRS Balanced Line Out or headphone jack, depending on the PRE/POST switch setting. On the rear you will find the UNIVERSAL AC INLET, twin SPEAKER outputs (4-8 ohms), and a traditional RJ-45 connector, allowing a Quilter footswitch to control overdrive channel switching, limiter, and reverb.

Quilter Labs uses modern high-efficiency power technology to maximize warmth and dynamics without the weight and drawbacks of classic tube technology. Advised by musicians, their constant goal is to make products that they are proud to use. The result is a serious professional tool with performance that meets your needs.
