Easy to transport and protect
Sweetwater bassists know how difficult it can be to lug a full bass rig to the show. At only 5.5 lbs., the Mesa Subway D-800 takes the problems of bulky and heavy bass amplifier rigs out of the equation, allowing you to focus on your performance and tone. The Subway D-800 is built small enough to fit in the pocket of some bass guitar gig bags. And it comes with its very own gig bag, giving you protection that’s custom built for the Subway D-800. This ultra-lightweight bass amplifier is the gigging bassist’s best friend.
Plenty of juice for any rig or gig
The power section of the Mesa Subway D-800 bass amplifier can push 800 watts, ensuring you have enough juice for any gig out there. Whether it’s driving a 1 x 12″ cabinet for a smaller jazz combo or pushing an 8 x 10″ cab for a huge sound across a large stage, the D-800 can cover it without breaking a sweat. And all of that horsepower comes in the form of an exceptionally lightweight Class D power section.
Total tonal control
Mesa Engineering has a long legacy of iconic bass amplifiers. The Subway D-800 joins the lineage of such amps as their Carbine and Big Block series, propelling the low end in just about every genre. The 4-band EQ is complemented by the D-800’s variable voicing control, letting you preset your EQ curve anywhere from flat to a vintage-scoop. And you have plenty of setup options with a pre/post EQ and mic/line level on the balanced XLR output. The Subway D-800 makes dialing in your bass tone quick and easy.
