Quilter Labs' Aviator Cub UK 50W 1x12 combo amp brings quintessential British amplifier sounds to guitarists seeking vintage tone and modern flexibility. This single-channel workhorse features three inputs that recreate the sonic signatures of Britain's most beloved amps: The "AC" channel produces the chime of a Vox, the "AC Top Boost" the shimmer of an early Marshall and the "JMP" the punch of a later Marshall. Running through a custom 12" speaker, the Aviator Cub UK's 50W of power let you achieve cranked-amp tone at lower volumes—perfect for practice or performance.

Authentic Vintage Voicings

Whether you're chasing the brightness of an AC30, the crunch of a Plexi or the drive of a JMP, the Aviator Cub UK delivers. Its AC channel produces the jangly clean tones that defined the British Invasion. The AC Top Boost adds midrange grit and harmonic richness. And the JMP channel unleashes a throaty overdrive reminiscent of hard rock's halcyon days. Dialing between channels is fast and seamless, giving you a palette of era-specific tones at your fingertips.

Built for Portability

Weighing in at just over 21lb., the Aviator Cub UK is a highly transportable amp that refuses to sacrifice power or performance. It pumps 50W through a custom 12" speaker, achieving cranked-amp tones at lower volumes suitable for smaller clubs and studios. The amp also features a headphone output and effects loop for silent practice or recording. Whether you're gigging across town or tracking in your home studio, the Aviator Cub UK delivers iconic British tone with modern flexibility.
