The amp is the first Block series amplifier to feature an FRFR Voice mode for use with modern modeling systems.
Costa Mesa, CA (June 24, 2019) -- 2019)—Unveiling the culmination of years of research, Pat Quilter, founder of Quilter Amplification has released the all new Tone Block 202. More than a cosmetic upgrade to the already successful 200 Series, the Quilter Tone Block 202 completely re-envisions what you can expect from compact performance oriented guitar amplification. From the staggering power of the head throughout each of the interconnectivity features designed to coax every ounce of tone from your PA, DAW, or modeling rig, the Tone Block 202 comes to bat with powerful new voicing options and even further range of controls.
The Tone Block 202 expands upon the features in our 200 series amplifiers including a new built from the ground up 200-watt Class D power amp design delivering improved signal to noise ratio and incredible power. Delivering an incredibly powerful performance, (notes feel bigger and hit harder) the Tone Block 202 does more than any other amplifier can while effortlessly fending off the usual gig killing problems like overheating, or adapting to bad AC power from the wall. Delivering on the promise of modular systems, the Tone Block 202 is the first Block series amplifier to feature an FRFR Voice mode for use with modern day modeling systems. By controlling the behavior of the output impedance the user can instantly switch from a tube like and warm low damping factor to a high damping factor necessary for delivering on the cab simulations built into most modelers. With a choice between FRFR, FullQ, and Vintage voicing, the amplifier easily delivers tonal options not possible with traditional technology.
The Tone Block 202 delivers in spades regardless the situation a professional guitarist might find themselves in. With wattage-calibrated Master Volume, finding the “safe” zone for speaker power for your cabinets is easier than ever. Plus, you can get the right level of saturation at any volume without any tonal change! Interfacing with the PA on silent stages is easier than ever before with cab simulated output, a choice of pre or post line out, and a speaker tapped direct out that all function safely without a load attached. The universal switching power supply not only self-adjusts to worldwide voltages, but also self-adjusts to inconsistent voltages at your local bar gig or generator powered outdoor stage without need for switches or heavy and expensive power conditioners.
Weighing in at only 3.3 pounds (1.5 kg) the Tone Block 202 is the ultimate solution for guitarists, steel guitarists, or anywhere you may need tube like or solid state-like instrument amplification. We recommend docking the Tone Block 202 in our BlockDock 12HD for 23 pounds (10.4kgs) of combo amp convenience that can keep up with the heaviest hitting drummers and full stack rigs.
“If you need to get your tone from point A to point B be it via a speaker cabinet, DAW, PA system, or anywhere else, this is your amp.” Says company CEO Chris Parks. “It represents the ultimate ease of use, portable amplification and interconnection system regardless of what your situation may require be it pedalboard amp, head, mixer interface, FRFR amp head or just a good old fashioned 200 watts of screaming tube-like amplification.”

Kick off the holiday season by shopping for the guitar player in your life at Guitar Center! Now through December 24th 2022, save on exclusive instruments, accessories, apparel, and more with hundreds of items at their lowest prices of the year.
We’ve compiled this year’s best deals in the 2022 Holiday Gift Guide presented by Guitar Center.
DiMarzio, Inc. announces the Relentless P (DP299), the Relentless J Bridge (DP301), Relentless J Neck (DP300), and the Relentless J Pair (DP302) for 4 string basses.
DiMarzio, Inc. announces the release of the Relentless P (DP299), the Relentless J Bridge (DP301), Relentless J Neck (DP300), and the Relentless J Pair (DP302) for 4 string basses. The new Relentless P and Relentless J series pickups feature the Relentless cover designed in collaboration with Billy Sheehan.
As with the Relentless pickups, we removed all the hard edges from the standard P Bass and standard J Basspickups, and added an arch to the top of the pickups to bring the sensing coils and pole pieces closer to the strings. These improvements increase the dynamic range and make active circuitry unnecessary.
The Relentless P and Relentless J pickups incorporate Neodymium magnets and produce 70 percent more output than traditional passive pickups, and they’re dead quiet due to the incorporation of metal covers and foil-shielded cables. To dial in (or fine-tune) the individual string output, the Relentless P and Relentless J include eight adjustable pole pieces. These pickups also have a broad magnetic field so you can even bend notes without volume dropout.
DiMarzio’s extra shielding makes the Relentless P and Relentless J better for both recording and stage performances. We’ve mounted them onto robust .09375” thick circuit board base plates to eliminate the annoying protruding mounting screws — ultimately creating a more comfortable and consistent foundation to rest your fingers on.
The new Relentless P steps beyond the traditional P-Bass sound and can only be described as massive. It has more of everything: more volume, beefier lows, a growling midrange, and crispy highs with better individual string definition.
The Relentless J incorporates a new invention, (patent pending) parallelogram-shaped coils, offering an expanded mid-range punch, snappy highs, precise lows, and a new dimension to the sound of the Relentless series pickups.
Relentless P and Relentless J pickups will breathe new life into any bass, increase playability, and work well for any style of music from Motown to metal.
DiMarzio’s Relentless P, Relentless J Bridge, Relentless J Neck, and Relentless J pair are made in the U.S.A. and may now be ordered for immediate delivery.
Suggested List Price for the Relentless P is $169.00 (MAP $119.99).
Suggested List Price for the Relentless J Bridge and Relentless J neck is $155.00 (MAP $109.99).
Suggested List Price for the Relentless J Pair is $296.00 (MAP 209.99).

Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
Origin Effects introduce the new M-EQ DRIVER mid booster & drive pedal. Based on a vintage Pultec studio EQ, this unique pedal offers a range of mid-focused tones, from a subtle mid boost to thick, resonant overdrive. Featuring the Adaptive Circuitry recently introduced on their Halcyon Green Overdrive, Origin Effects have brought us a pedal with a character all of its own and a new flavor of drive.
A choice of three mid-range frequencies ensures that you can boost just the right part of your guitar signal and, when pushed harder, can elicit a range of saturation from a classic “mid-hump” overdrive to fierce “cocked wah” distortion. Thanks to the Adaptive Circuitry, the high-end roll-off of the Cut control is reduced as the pedal cleans up. This allows for a smooth transition from warm overdrive to bright clean tones in response to playing dynamics or guitar volume knob changes.
Introducing... M-EQ DRIVER || Mid Booster & Drive
Built-in the UK to the highest standards, the M-EQ DRIVER continues the Origin Effects tradition of vintage, studio-inspired tones in modern guitar pedals. The Origin Effects M-EQ DRIVER is available now from Origin Effects dealers worldwide.
RRP: 259 GBP (Inc VAT) / 319 USD (Ex TAX)
