Mesa Boogie Fillmore 100 - Head


The Home of Tone®

The Fillmore™ is not just another Boogie®… it’s a new strand of Boogie DNA. Yet the molecules that make up this soulful sounding model are really just a revisiting of the companies earliest roots. Randall Smith’s very first Boogie’s were based on this architecture. It was only the success of another “MARK I Experiment” featuring a different branch of the tree used by Carlos Santana on his “Abraxas” album that catapulted that sound and circuit and caused the shelving of circuitry the Fillmore now resurrects with such beauty and authenticity.

Don’t wait a moment longer to discover what the MARK Series success inadvertently postponed for so long.

 

Overview

VINTAGE POWER UNLEASHED

In this era where 100-watt guitar amplifiers are the exception not the rule, the new Fillmore™ 100 arrives to remind us what truly huge Tone, not necessarily with loud volume or unmanageable weight, is all about. More dynamic nuance, more exciting snap in the PERFECT frequencies, a gorgeous attack envelope, increased dimensional width/girth and headroom and better tracking of low frequencies all add up to a Fillmore that excels not just anywhere its lower power siblings fit, but anywhere big magic is desired.

And for those who need both big power and low wattage in the same amp, the Fillmore 100’s Power Reduction Switch provides HALF and LOW Power settings to ensure you’ll always be able to match your power curve to preamp sound style or venue. Experience our vintage-voiced and styled Fillmore, now in a barely heavier, same-sized 100 Watt format. Discover–soft clip to saturated–our most expressive gain ever presented in a simple 2 (identical) Channel, 3-Mode platform in traditional-sized and dressed combo and head formats.
