Seven knobs (X2)? That's too many?

I don't disagree. They coulda removed the Reverb knobs (or put them on the back panel where they belong) and I wouldn't have minded. But it that's still too much, you shoulda bought a TA15 when you could. Two channels, 8 knobs (but 5+ switches!).

I like the concept of two 'cloned' channels. The LoneStar came close to this concept already, and I'm a big fan of that amp. And this combo amp isn't much heavier than a DRRI, with lots more power and features. Sadly, I'm done buying amps. Forever. Really. I just keep telling myself that until I eventually believe it.

Welcome aboard, @Lef T . Good to see another participant.

I'm not holding my breath to see one. I just last week got to try a TC50 and an Origin - the first ones my little backwater L&M have got in. May not see a Fillmore till next decade. LOL

L&M said they're coming soon.
Here in Ontario L&M has a pretty good stock of Mesas.
We may be surprised.
Soon as they're in I'm trying the combo.
Can I afford the combo?
No!.
At least I will know if I want one.

L&M is good at stocking stuff. But I have to go to one of the big stores, like Vancouver, to see the big variety. They've got Matchless, Dr Z, the whole MB line, lots of used stuff, lots of high end guitars. My little suburbs store has limited stock.

That's OK, all the better if your 'drug dealer of choice' isn't that arm-twisty, if you know what I mean. I'm now lusting after a TC50, but don't want to pay full price for one. I'm much more likely to find a used one now that they've been out for a while.

Exactly.
I bought a used,but mint Mesa Mark V head and 1x12 Mesa 27 inch RA 1x12 cab for a lot less than the Fillmore costs.
The Fillmore with tax is going to run $2500 tax in.
That's more chump change than I have.
