Subway D-350

MESA/Boogie is proud to announce the release of the smallest, and lightest Bass Amp in MESA history, the super-versatile Subway D-350 Bass Amp, available worldwide at authorised MESA/Boogie dealers and on www.MESABoogie.com.

Hand-crafted in Petaluma, CA, the MESA/Boogie Subway D-350 with its world class tone, innovation, and quality is MESA’s most affordable bass amp to date. The ultra-compact champion in MESA’s Subway Bass Series the MESA/Boogie Subway D-350 weighs only 3 lb. 2 oz., and packs a powerful punch with 350 watts of Class D power.

Building on the legendary foundation laid by the acclaimed Subway® D-800™, the new Subway D-350 uses a solid-state preamp coupled with a lightweight Class D power amp and switch-mode power supply to deliver heaping portions of world-class TONE in an incredibly small and lightweight package that’s perfect for home use and studio recording sessions while still delivering plenty of power and punch to provide MESA-quality tone authoritatively and dependably, gig after gig for small to mid-sized venues, or as a micro-sized backup amp on tour.

Subway D-350

Our design goal for the entire SUBWAY Series is to deliver warm, musical bass tone in the most compact and portable package possible and the addition of our new 3 lb. 2 oz compact Subway D-350 achieves this goal” says Doug West, Director of the Gibson Tone Lab at MESA/Boogie. “The SUBWAY Series range truly gives bassists every option they need for any venue, from home and silent practice, to club and concert stages. Considering our Subway Ultra-Lite Cabinet range offers players the option for 1×12, 1×15, 2×10, 2×12, 2×15 and 4×10 formats. The inspirational sound these cabs deliver is really the ‘other half’ of the SUBWAY magic and musicality.

The MESA Subway D-350 easily adapts for use with active or passive basses with the flip of the Active/Passive switch, while the Input Mute switch lets you use inline tuners silently. The Bright switch adds bite and sparkle to the tone and opens up the top end a bit more, and all the switches have LED status indicators. Separate Gain and Master Volume controls allow you to dial up a wide range of tones from shimmering clean to mild overdrive and everything in between, while the built-in fixed high-pass filter (HPF) blocks unwanted, non-musical, headroom-robbing sub-sonic frequencies. The Variable Voicing control adjusts the amp’s response from a flatter curve to a more vintage curve by modifying and varying levels and frequency response in multiple regions with the turn of a single knob.

The Subway D-350’s intuitive feature set furnishes all the tone-shaping tools needed to deliver the tone, feel, and response that has made the Subway Series MESA’s most popular bass line to date. The fully active 4-band Baxandall EQ features fixed frequency high and low-frequency shelving controls, as well as fixed frequency Low Mid and High Mid peak/dip bands for even more tonal control. When practicing at home, the Aux Input and Headphones output jacks let you listen to a media player and your bass simultaneously and silently without disturbing others. The Subway D-350 also has a USB power port for powering accessories, while the fully-featured balanced XLR direct output (DI) with pre/post EQ source, ground lift, and Mic/Line level switches are perfect for delivering MESA’s legendary tone to the front-of-house PA or your recording system’s audio interface. A pair of speakON™ jacks allow you to connect one or two speaker cabinets; the Subway D-350 is an excellent partner for MESA’s highly musical Subway® Ultra-Lite cabinets. With its ideal combination of small size, light weight, ample power, and stellar tonal flexibility, the Subway D-350 is compact (3″ x 9″ x 8.25″) and fits easily into your gig bag’s accessory compartment, or in its own gig bag which is included.
