Mason Dixon Amplifiers Unveils a 15-Watt Version of Fillmore East Edition Amplifier

Mason Dixon Amplifiers Unveils a 15-Watt Version of Fillmore East Edition Amplifier

With its point-to-point wiring and premium tubes, the amp is designed to achieve the magical tones of the Allman Brothers’ famed Fillmore East performances, but at a friendlier volume with a master volume in the circuit.


The amp is available in two configurations: you can choose between a Duane or Dickey model and each combo is loaded with a Hybrid JBL D120 Speaker for correct tone and response. Original JBL D120 speakers are an optional upgrade. This 15-watt amplifier is available in a combo or head version and tolex and grill cloth color choices are available.

The Duane Model will give you the exact amp tone and response he was getting Fillmore that night at the. Our modifications are based on the exact modifications that were done to Duane’samps used at the show. The Dickey Model will get you that clean headroom to plenty of drive and sustain as heard at the Fillmore to a more modern version you hear from Dickey’s amps in more recent years.

Each amplifier offers the following features:

  • Number of Channels: 2
  • Total Power: 15 Watts
  • Speaker Size: 1x12
  • Preamp Tubes: ECC83
  • Power Tubes: EL84
  • Construction Materials: Baltic Birch
  • Made in the US
  • Price: $1649 with free shipping within the United States

Missing Link Audio’s Mason Dixon 15-watt amplifier is priced at $1649 with free shipping within the United States.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
