Vintage-Inspired Magic, Super Responsive, Nuanced & Organic - Now in a 6V6 loaded format!
The MESA/Boogie® Fillmore™ 25 joins the award-winning Fillmore™ 50 and offers Vintage-inspired tone, organic feel and responsiveness in a straightforward, compact 6V6 loaded format. Authentic, traditional voices are abundant in this Fillmore’s popular power range. Expect juicy, warm, rounded cleans as well as smooth, rich gain tones when plugging in. Whether staged in front or run through the fully buffered, series tube effects loop, the Fillmore 25 makes an excellent low-wattage pedal platform. The 25 also features tube-driven spring reverb that provides some of our lushest, richest reverb to date. Experience the Fillmore 50's soul coupled seamlessly in a traditionally dressed, original Boogie-sized footprint, with preamp flexibility to cover most any style of music that is married to a 6V6 power section that seems always in the "sweet spot".
Sonically, the Fillmore 25 is among the best of MESA designs. Spawning from early Boogie Tweed-based amps and providing amazing Vintage Cleans, our best mid-gain/OD mode to date and a super-expressive high gain mode that rides the rail between classic and modded-high-gain in an exceptional way - allowing you to hear every note, even in complex chords. All three modes showcase the integrity of the guitar you’re playing in a most inspiring way. For those who’ve been waiting for a wider range of expressive gain control, look no further! You’ll enjoy our most expressive gain ever, presented in an identical 2 Channel, 3-Mode platform. This amp is decidedly for a broad range of popular music, living mostly in-between Clean and High-Gain, from Nashville to Indie/Alternative, the realms of Rock, R&B, Soul, Blues, Jazz, you name it…
Both Channels feature the following modes:
CLEAN - 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 upper end of CLEAN can be driven to clip and its crystalline sparkle gives way smoothly to a perfect top end that doesn't sound buzzy or thin when clipped & saturated.
DRIVE - This mode picks up a little before where CLEAN tops out and approaches "high-gain". Unlike the rounder, warmer voice of HI, the DRIVE mode's "unedited" top end is reminiscent of a clean channel, allowing for a less compressed feel and harmonics to come through. Expressive & dynamically unhindered, DRIVE is perfect for open overdriven tones.
HI - The highest gain of the Fillmore 25's three modes, it features a wide range of saturation from subtle expressive clip to burning overdrive - creating ample sustain, harmonics, and compression for most high-gain work save for perhaps 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 & Brit amp tones popular in that era. HI is tailored with its top end somewhat rounded off and the harmonics shaped to produce a better single note response with a voice-like character.
A fully buffered, Series Tube FX Loop and All-Tube, Long-Tank, Spring Reverb with independent channel controls round out the Fillmore 25’s feature set. An external Reverb Switching Jack provides for remote switching of Reverb with an optional reverb footswitch & cable (sold separately) or external controller.
