Reverb, Effects Loop, Footswitch and Cover
The Mesa Boogie Fillmore 50 1x12 combo is a straight-forward, all-tube guitar amplifier capable of delivering a variety of tones ranging from pristine clean, to vintage crunch, and even higher gain overdrive - with the ability to dial subtle increments of saturation for the precise amount of distortion desired while retaining character and rich harmonic content. It offers players a wide range of gain, from soft clipping to highly saturated. The Fillmore is responsive, organic and nuanced, so guitarists will feel at home whether playing Rock, Pop, Blues, Country, Reggae or Jazz. It's equally appealing to those seeking a great pedal platform.
The Fillmore 50 is loaded with a pair of 6L6 Power Tubes plus five 12AX7 Preamp Tubes and features selectable output power of either 50-watts or 25-watts. A streamlined front panel showcases 2 fully independent & identical foot-switchable channels. Both channels feature CLEAN, DRIVE & HI Modes, with Independent GAIN, TREBLE, MID, BASS, PRESENCE, REVERB & MASTER Controls.
CLEAN / DRIVE / HI Channel Mode Selection
CLEAN MODE- While the Fillmore's preamp architecture leans toward the more throaty voice and easier to clip "Tweed" circuits of the 1950s, the lower half of the CLEAN mode behaves more like a 1960s "Blackface" type of circuit. Here you'll find pristine cleans with ample sparkle and chime. The CLEAN mode can also be driven to clip and its crystalline sparkle easily gives way to a warm, rich and “pushed” top end.
DRIVE MODE- This mode picks up a little before where CLEAN tops out and approaches "high-gain". Unlike the rounder, warmer voice of the HI model, the DRIVE mode's "unedited" top end has a less compressed feel and harmonics shine through. Expressive & dynamically unhindered, DRIVE is perfect for open overdriven tones.
HI MODE - The highest gain of the Fillmore 50s three modes, this setting features a wide range of saturation from subtle expressive clip to burning overdrive – More compressed with ample sustain and harmonics, great for most high-gain work up to extreme modern metal sounds. This mode pays homage to the best of the late 70s / early 80s Crunch Rhythm & Lead Sounds, riding a line between MESA/Boogie & classic Marshally British amp tones popular during that era. The HI mode has a tailored top end with harmonics shaped to produce a better single note response and voice-like character.
REVERB and FX LOOP
A fully buffered, Series Tube FX Loop and All-Tube, Long-Tank, Spring Reverb with independent channel controls round out the Fillmore 50’s feature set. An external Reverb Switching Jack provides for remote on/off switching of the Reverb via footswitch or external controller.
