Costa Mesa, CA (June 20, 2014) -- Portable, powerful, and professional are the hallmarks of Quilter Labs’ new additions to the Steelaire amplifier lineup. Quilter Labs is proud to announce the Steelaire Rackmount, and the Steelaire Pro amplifiers rounding out their catalog of high quality professional Steelaire amplifiers. Sporting a whopping 200 watts (with an additional 200 watts of headroom) the Steelaire Rackmount is the solution for the player who wants big power and portability for their existing speakers. Utilizing an active switchmode power supply, under-voltage or "dirty AC" no longer pose an issue. The player will get good clean consistent tone no matter what the venue throws at you. The Steelaire Pro is a system designed for the Pro player who needs both rack-mountable power and the ability to separate the head from the cabinet for isolation-booth recording. The Steelaire Pro is aimed at the pro level player who needs the most flexible solutions for stage and studio. Great for putting the amplifier in a recording isolation booth while maintaining the controls outside the booth, the Steelaire Pro is quickly becoming a standard for pro level recording. Utilizing Quilter’s patent pending technology, the Steelaire Pro and Steelaire Rackmount deliver the same tube-like qualities as all Quilter products without the drawbacks of classic technology. Already on stage and in the studio with Robert Randolph, Ward Williams (Randy Houser), Tim Sergent (Dierks Bentley), Greg Liesz (Clapton, John Mayer) and more, they are quickly becoming the norm in high power professional amplification.
