What We Think

When it comes to convenience, all too often we find ourselves thinking, "That's great, but what's the catch?" With Mesa Boogie's new Subway D-800 there is no catch, just massive tone in an easy to manage, lightweight head. That's right, this baby pushes 800W of clean power and only weighs 5 1/2 lbs! It accommodates active and passive inputs and has a 4-Band rotary EQ with a Deep switch for added bass presence. We're talking tonal flexibility for days! I loved how easy it was to change my tone, radically or subtly, with just a few turns of the knobs. Impedance switching and a variety of output options make sure that you're covered whether you're on stage, in the studio or practicing at home. With the Subway D-800, Mesa proves that good things truly do come in small packages!

Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

The SUBWAY D-800 addresses the player who wants enhanced frequency control and an interface for outboard signal processing. The upscale D-800+ preamp features expand upon the acclaimed D-800 by including a comprehensive EQ section with Semi-Parametric sweep-able LOW and HIGH MID Bands, the addition of a BRIGHT switch, an adjustable HIGH-PASS Filter with control from 30Hz to 150 Hz, and on the Rear Panel, a Series Effects Loop, Tuner Output and 1/4” MUTE footswitch jack.

COMPACT POWER - From the 5.5 lb., 800 Watt SUBWAY D-800 or the enhanced SUBWAY D-800+ to the SUBWAY DI Preamp, the SUBWAY Series gives you every opportunity to command any venue from small club to large concert stage...from the pocket of your gig bag! Ultra-Lite cabinets in 1x12, 1x15 and 2x10 uniformly stackable formats provide the “other half” of the SUBWAY Line’s magic and musicality.

The D-800+ upgrades include an adjustable HIGH-PASS Filter that allows control over the sub-lows in your mix from 30Hz to 150 Hz to achieve the tightest response, most detailed articulation and maximum headroom in an ensemble scenario or large venue application.

Either way you get there, the straight ahead and beautifully simple D-800 or the upscale, fully featured D-800+, the SUBWAYS deliver nuance-rich Tone, stunning power and headroom and a blend of flexibility and portability that would be any Bassist's dream ride to musical inspiration.

Additional upgrades include a comprehensive EQ section with Semi-Parametric sweep-able LOW and HIGH MID Bands, the addition of a BRIGHT switch, and on the Rear Panel, a Series Effects Loop, Tuner Output and 1/4” MUTE footswitch jack.

The 800+ Effects Loop is wired in Series with the main signal and provides a seamless interface for your outboard processing with the least possible degradation to your signal. As always Compression, Wah, Envelope and certain Overdrive effects may be preferable "In Front" of the amplifier.

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.
