Get your Mesa Boogie Subway WD-800 Bass Amp Head from Humbucker Music, one of the largest custom Mesa dealers in the world with many Boogie amps for sale and in stock at all times!

In direct response to player feedback and the longstanding demand for a more powerful version of the WalkAbout Bass Head, Mesa is proud to unveil the latest in the Subway Bass Amp Line, the WD-800 Head. This Head combines the warm, soulful sounding magic of the WalkAbout tube preamp section with the musical Class D Output Power used in the Subway Line (D-800 and D-800+), to create the ultimate lightweight hybrid.

Just like the original, the inspiring round WalkAbout Tone is joined by comprehensive rotary shelving Tone controls and a semi-parametric EQ, giving you total shaping authority in the preamp. The new WD800 also features the Subway D800 Plus’s highly effective HIGH PASS FILTER and a new POWER AMP DAMPING control, which allow tuning of the sub-low frequencies and power response options respectively. The POWER DAMPING choices enable you to tailor the tracking and feel of the power amp. The LOW setting produces a looser, more relaxed and blooming character reminiscent of Tube power. HIGH tightens the low end, adding punch and accuracy in tracking, while MEDIUM provides a blend of these opposite ends of the power response spectrum.

The WD-800 can perform as a stand-alone Head or be mounted in 2 Spaces within standard 19" Racks by attaching the optional Rack Ears (not included). The new WD-800 has power and versatility to spare. Not exactly a WalkAbout or a Subway, but rather everything great about both combined in a lightweight, big-power platform!
