MESA/Boogie Subway D-800 Bass Amp


  • Overview

    Our first-ever Ultra Lightweight, Professional Level Class D SUBWAY® D-800 For Bass

    The Subway® D-800™ is where MESA®'s passion for Design Excellence and Portability meet the demand for Great Tone in a simple, accessible package. At only 5.5 lbs., a little over 3 inches tall and 10 inches wide the ultra-lightweight, yet professionally power-rated Class D package for Bass boasts an easy to navigate, yet full-featured preamp with all the shaping control you’ll need coupled with a mighty 800 watt musical sounding, reliable, featherweight output section. The result is an amp that can command any venue from a small club to a large concert

    Built around a combination of signature circuits ranging from our classic tube models like the vintage Bass 400+ and more recent Bass Strategy™ 8:88™, to the mosfet powered accuracy and mid-focused definition of the Big Block™ 750 and M9 Carbine™ the new SUBWAY D-800 embodies the best qualities from the entire MESA Bass lineage and unveils a unique new voice all its own.

    Tone shaping in the SUBWAY D-800 begins with the Front Panel INPUT section, which is comprised of the INPUT jack and two switches; a MUTE and an ACTIVE/PASSIVE switch for tailoring the input headroom to your instrument.

    VOICE CONTROL on the SUBWAY D-800 is a continuously variable rendering that allows fine-tuning of your sound from a more “flat” response to a radically scooped midrange sound with the lows and highs boosted.

    For all those who need that extra huge Tone, we’ve included a DEEP switch that further enhances low end and puts an unmistakable sub-low component into the mix.

    Further Tone shaping is handled by our 4-Band Fixed, Rotary EQ Section comprised of BASS, LOW MID, HIGH MID and TREBLE Controls.

    While VOICE controls have appeared on several MESA Bass designs, here on the SUBWAY D-800, we opted for a continuously variable rendering that allows fine-tuning of your sound from a more “flat” response to a radically scooped midrange sound with the lows and highs boosted. 

    DIRECT OUTPUT - A standard XLR D.I. OUTPUT provides switching for pre/post routing, mic or line level output and a ground switch to aid in curing ground noise problems when interfacing with other gear.

    A HEADPHONES OUTPUT is provided so you can enjoy the SUBWAY’s great sound without disturbing others. Further inspiration is available for solo enjoyment by connecting pre-recorded music, a sequencer or a drum machine to the AUX Input and playing to accompaniment while using headphones.

    A DIRECT OUTPUT section is included so you can share your Tone with the world of recording and/or reinforcement and provides a full set of options for your D.I. needs.
