Mesa Filmore 25 vs Fender Deluxe Reverb for clean head room

Post by revgsmall » Sun Oct 07, 2018 4:37 pm

When I do my rockabilly, swamp blues, surf oriented trio, my Deluxe RI is invariably at 3-3 1/4. That provides enough head room for me and then I smack it with a light OD pedal. I noticed that the official demo from Boogie had the Filmore 25 pretty much half way up with the pre and master volume, which would tell me there ain't much more room in head room land.

Has anyone been able to check the head room on the Filmore yet?

Thanks in advance

Rev. G
