Gearank Recommendation

The MicroPro Mach 2 Combo 8 appeared on our recommended list for Solid State Guitar Amps With Modeling from August 2020 until July 2021.

It was also on our list for Guitar Practice Amps from September 2020 until July 2021.

Overview

It's interesting how streamlined digital amps are doing well, alongside analog amps with multiple voicings - both of them going against the norm where digital amps should have more voicings while analog amps have only 1 or 2.

The Quilter MicroPro Mach 2 Combo 8 is an excellent example of multi-voiced analog modeling amps, with 6 switchable voicings: Full Q, Lead, Smooth, Surf, Brown, Tweed - and each voicing is getting good reviews.

For an amp that weighs at just 19 lbs, this combo comes packed with a powerful 200W 2-channel solid state amplifier section.

To make it more compact and portable, it is paired with a smaller 8" Celestion TF0818 speaker.

Other features include built-in reverb and tremolo, dedicated EQ controls per channel, and for a small amp, it does come with effects loop.

If you're looking for a compact yet great sounding amp, with fewer but good selection of amp voicings, then do check out the Quilter MicroPro Mach 2 Combo 8.
