The Fillmore FM-75 is available in our Recto-Verb 25, which you can hear many sound/video samples of on our website or youtube page.

The KS-100 is made for the King Snake, and will be in the limited edition series of amps only.

We do have plans to release other Fillmore models for various applications. Currently they are not available as raw frame speakers, but will be in the near future. Thanks!

How does the Filmore 75 compare to a V30? I like the voice of a V30 in general but it would be nice to have a little more sparkle in the high end (like a C90) and maybe a little more "relaxed" low mids.

Mesa has a reference V30 (basically, their idea of what "perfection" sounds like) that they used in developing the FM75, so the idea is that the FM75 should sound like the best V30 ever. The best we've gotten out of Mesa thus far is sort of a vague description that's heavy in marketing terms. I think we'll have to wait until a couple of forum bros are willing to wax poetic over every single detail before we have a better description.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.

The FM75 has more low end, tighter low end, and is less scooped in the mids. Its got a much smoother top end that doesn't separate or fizz out with higher-gain settings. Thanks!

V30 is not a scooped sounding speaker (just the opposite actually) so does that mean the FM75 is extremely mid-heavy or "honky"? Or is the midrange focused in a different frequency?

Yep!!

I used a Fillmore 75 tonight at practice and it is as quoted.

The other guitar player asked me what I was using to "get" that sound? "Just a new speaker" is all.
