mesa boogie engineering m9 rackmount head bass amp photoPOWER MONGER?
WHEN IT COMES TO BASS... WE ARE TOO.

So we took the success of the M6 Carbine as our compass point and set out to create a full featured, high power version of this simple, intuitive platform.

Bassists the world over responded overnight to the new clarity, on-demand attack and crystal-clear definition of the M6's Trans-Class™all-tube preamp and MOSFET power. They love that it's easy to dial and yet offers all the versatility they need via the power of the rotary VOICE feature.

The next step in the evolution of this dynamo was obvious. Add substantially more power and endow the preamp with a full set of studio-quality EQ and dynamic features.

THE M9 CARBINE....Now the M9 Carbine escalates the race with a mighty 600 watts (into 4 ohms) of Trans-Class™ power and yet still harnesses all that energy within 2 rack spaces. The Carbine speed, punch and detail can now be delivered at big-venue volume levels and leave all but the bravest souls with ample headroom in reserve.

photo mesa boogie engineering m9 carbine bass amp 9 band eq9 BAND EQ:
Studio-quality Graphic EQ spreads the shaping power across 9 Bands ranging from 33Hz to 8Khz for ultimate fine-tuning and can be triggered on all the time or footswitched.

 

The Carbine preamp also gets super-charged in the M9 with the addition of a 9 Band Graphic EQ featuring long-throw faders that can be put in-line all the time or triggered via the included footswitch. The EQ also incorporates a VOICE DEFEAT feature that can turn off a selected VOICE Mode when the 9 Band EQ is triggered by the Footswitch. This gives you instant access to an additional sound during performance.
