Subway TT-800

Boogie Bass 400+ Tube Tone Joined with Proven Subway CLASS-D Power
The Boogie BASS 400+ became a modern day classic used by the world's most talented bassists for two decades. Paul McCartney, Mark King, Stanley Clark, Jack Blades, Michael Anthony, Blasko and Bootsy Collins, are but a few of the international stars across many genres that put the 400+ center stage during its 20-year build cycle. Those iconic tube amps still bring top dollar as recording centerpieces when you can find one changing hands on the pre-owned market. While MESA[reg] has since pioneered two generations of tube-driven mosfet models that held their ground since the 400's heyday, changing times have seen the rise of the acclaimed Class D designs and today it's the Subway Line in the spotlight. Now, in celebration of 50 years of building custom amplifiers, MESA is revisiting Randall Smith's legendary Bass 400 preamp, combining it with the popular Subway[reg] preamp and Class D power to create an exciting 2-Channel model containing the Greatest Hits, past and present. Ultimate Bass 400 Tube Tone and Subway accuracy served up with Dual Channel flexibility combined with Class-D high power and ultraportability.

The SUBWAY[reg] TT-800[trade] combines a true 2 channel preamp (a classic "BOOGIE CHANNEL" preamp and a "SUBWAY CHANNEL" preamp) along with MESA's rock solid 800 watt, 2 ohm capable class D power amplifier into a bass amp full of the features that are expected by the top players of today.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreWhite Rock, British Columbia
After owning/playing most everything over the past 50 years, this amp sounds incredible with a variety of basses...The Boogie channel nails the warmth and dynamics of Vintage tube heads from the past. Very skeptical at first about the digital power section, I can say that this head through an SVT 810 or a Mesa Powerhouse 1200 has plenty of headroom for any stage! Also, love the effects loops for each channel!! Buy one! 😎
