Awards

Guitar Player Editors Pick Award

“...The amp’s overdriven tones were so happening that I barely touched the distortion pedals that normally see a lot of action with my Fender Deluxe Reverb. Mesa has carefully worked out how the Clean/Drive/Hi switches affect the response of the channels. I’m told it took a lot of experimenting to get the feel, frequencies and overall voicing just right. Once you have the switches set for the kinds of sounds you want, it’s just a matter of dialing in the gain controls as needed to cover anything from ultra-clean tones to highly overdriven textures with tons of sustain. It’s all in the spirit of making the Fillmore 50 suitable for everything from jazz and blues to alt-country, hard rock and beyond...

...I think anyone who uses Fender combos with boost or distortion pedals will appreciate where the Fillmore 50 is coming from. The way this amp takes that basic configuration to new performance heights makes it a welcome addition to the Mesa line and an easy winner of an Editors’ Pick Award. Well done!”

Premier Gear Award

Superbly versatile and great sounding in all modes, yet extremely easy to dial in. Cleverly conceived, well built, and appealingly compact.
