What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

This head has got a ton of tone on tap for the gigging bass player who needs a broad range of sounds from one workhorse setup. The tube preamp offers plenty of warmth and growl for coaxing those fliptop tones we all love with the grain cranked up. Back it off and use the powerful and user friendly EQ section to carve out your sound quickly and easily for scooped slap bass sounds, punchy mid-boosted fingerstyle, or use the Deep pull to bring the low end to a rumbling, stage shaking level. Add on the DI out, Effects Loop, Tuner Out, and footswitch capabilities and 600 whopping clean watts of power and you've got just about everything you need, no matter the gig!

Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

The M6 CARBINE expands the MESA® Family of Bass amplifiers with an exciting new voice that’s super fast and extremely focused! The output section relies on the same time-proven array of custom designed mosfets used in our M-Pulse, Big Block and Titan models, but the preamp and driver section are all new creating a very different feel and attitude.

Up front the tube preamp utilizes a standard tone control string of Bass, Mid and Treble to shape the basic sound, but the shaping power doesn’t stop there.

About Manufacturer

Forty-five years and thousands of satisfied customers later, MESA/Boogie® Ltd. hand-builds the fifth generational offspring of that pivotal amplifier (and many more) now known around the globe as the MARK I Boogie®; the world’s first high gain, high power, compact 1x12 amplifier. That revolutionary little combo is the “missing link” in amp design... the pivotal nexus between Vintage and Modern guitar amplifiers. When it comes to amplified guitar, there’s really just two epochs… before Boogie, and after Boogie.
