I've been eyeballing one of these for quite some time and was about to pull the trigger before everything went sideways. Luckily, we've been fortunate enough to be largely unaffected by all this, so I went back on the prowl. Opened up the local CL and, as if a cosmic sign, there sat a Fillmore 50 in factory new condition for $1300. Did the weird mask, gloves, and distance meet up to check it out and it was pristine - the seal on the plastic casing holding the inspection tags, manual, etc. was still intact as well as the factory tie on the footswitch cable. Apparently, the dude selling it has been a big Mesa/Boogie fan for a while and got one to check out the different direction of its design and decided he preferred the more EL84-bent approach of their other products. I just got lucky and snatched a prime deal, it seems. Here it is sitting under its little brother, my Recto-Verb 25 head. Time will tell if the head finds a new home, but ideally the Fillmore would be a do-it-all amp for my sounds and I could greatly reduce my gear situation and get it all into the hands of players needing stuff to love and ample time to do so. All sanitized and ready to roll, this thing sounds fantastic and the EQ controls on it are powerful, it's a very immediate response to knob twiddling and has thus far been extremely versatile. The only thing it's missing is some of the ultra-tight heavy crunch the Recto-Verb offered up, but that's not my main sound or something I've spent much time trying to chase out of this amp. Again, time will tell if I can truly become a one amp player, but the Fillmore seems determined to convince of such.
