Custom Mesa Quality

Steffen7838, 08.05.2017
Since I usually travel with the contrabass and only occasionally use the E-Bass, Fretless-Bass and NXT, I needed an amplifier that covers the different areas. In addition, I have a back injury that forces me to keep the weight of the plant as low as possible.
I have some real bass amplifiers (SWR, TC, Phil Jones, etc.), but for some time I have only played one Headway EDB II preamplifier in combination with a QSC K10 - PA box. For the double bass, this is a soundly excellent alternative to the significantly heavier bass systems and offers enough power even in smaller halls.
With the basses, however, I never had the sound, which could really convince me, why I have the Subway DI-Preamp added. At first I tried the different basses and was already very impressed with the fundamental sound of the preamplifier, because it is the natural sound of the different basses really good. If you use the very simple but effective sound control, you have the desired bass sound very quickly. The highlight of the preamp is however in addition to the extensive connection possibilities certainly the Voicing regulator, the basic character discreetly to "boosted" changed, but never really tugged.
After the extremely positive electric bass experience, I then connected the double bass, which then confirmed the very good overall impression of the preamplifier. The instrument sounds similar cleanly over the headway, which is indeed a pure acoustic amplifier. The bass sounds transparent and "woody", whereby the pulling force can be significantly increased by the Voicing control.
Overall, the preamp offers the qualities known from Mesa and is also to be purchased at a price favorable for Mesa ratios.

Mesa Sound in handbag format

Tomfisch, 27.12.2016
The Subway Preamp offers the typical Mesa bass sound, as I know it from my M3 Carbine, for example. Fat basses and deep midges, silvery heights and a defined sound. This is not a neutral amp, but the sound is already in the zero position of all controls. The sound controllers themselves work effectively and very musically and the deep switch is a real low bass around the ears. The Voicing control operates similar to a Contour switch bass and treble. Especially in combination with the two center controls, all music styles can be used with matching sounds.
I use the preamp primarily for my InEar system, which I have to date with my Eden WDTI preamped. With the Eden I was and I am very satisfied, but the Mesa has a decisive feature for me, which hardly offers a preamp: I can pass both my sound for the InEar system, as well as for the FOH a signal tap Thanks to two XLR -Outs! The second DI-out can then be pre / post switched, so I can partially complete my gigs with only one box. A clear plus of the Mesa is that - in contrast to the WDTI - with a 9V standard power supply or a 9V battery block can be used. Since you do not have to worry about the right power supply, if the gig should fail.
The processing of the subway is good, but the master control gives you minimal scratches when pressed. Likewise, the cable for the battery clamp would have fallen out 2cm longer. Otherwise everything is mesa-typical stable built. Also the noise is in the green area - only when the heights are raised brutally, a quiet noise occurs. In this respect, the subway is, in my opinion, fully studyable.
Conclusion: there is Mesa sound, unfortunately also to the Mesa price. In terms of features and sound quality, however, the price-performance ratio is still appropriate.
