  • Mesa Boogie Bass Strategy Bass Head

    The Mesa/Boogie Bass Strategy Eight:88 sports eight KT88s in its engine room, pumping out bone-crunching volume and stunning bass tone that'll take your breath away. Boasting a jaw-dropping 465 watts of raw tube power, this beast is ready for your next arena gig, but you can knock it back to a tidy 250 watts for club work or a svelte 125 watts for recording. Multi-watt operation is only one of a number of great features this amazing bass amp gives you. If you've been craving a world-class bass head, we have it: the Mesa/Boogie Bass Strategy Eight:88.

    Stunning power

    The Mesa/Boogie Bass Strategy Eight:88 is about power - tube power - and lots of it. With eight KT88s under the hood, the Bass Strategy Eight:88 generates 465 watts of stunning, stadium-filling volume. And remember, these are tube watts - they're much louder than equivalent solid-state watts. Impressive, but Bass Strategy Eight:88 is also a world-class tone monster.

    Monster tone

    Mesa/Boogie's Bass Strategy Eight:88 head not only serves up amazing bass tone, but it also gives you the tools to shape it to achieve your signature sound. This head has three 12AX7s in its wheelhouse, along with massive tone-shaping mojo. You get a gain control, active bass, passive mids, active treble, a 5-position active mid-voicing switch, and, of course, a master volume. But there's much more (including a footswitchable, assignable, or bypassable 9-band graphic EQ). No wonder it's called the Bass Strategy.

    Amazing versatility

    The Mesa/Boogie Bass Strategy Eight:88 is one of the most versatile bass heads we've seen. Take its footswitchable solo level control. With this nifty feature, you can nail the perfect volume for your dolo with a tap of your foot. Speaking of your foot, the Bass Strategy 5-button footswitch (a highly recommended option) sports buttons laid out ergonomically in two rows. And to prove Mesa has their thinking caps on, there's even a second tuner-out jack on the footswitch! There's more, including fixed bias for consistent, maintenance-free performance, a balanced XLR line-out, and multi-impedance speakON-1/4" combo outputs. But you really must experience the Bass Strategy Eight:88 for yourself. Get a taste of what playing through a world-class bass amp feels like. It's addictive.
