Wicked tone and power you can dial in on the fly.

The Mesa Boogie M6 Carbine is an ultra-fast, super-soulful bass amplifier with a time-tested array of custom-designed MOSFETs (metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors), but the preamp and driver section are a wholly unique design, creating a very different feel and attitude.

Up front the tube preamp employs a standard tone control string of Bass, Mid, and Treble to shape the basic sound, but the shaping power doesn't stop there. There is a Pull Deep feature found on the Bass control that keeps the low end tight and articulate when pushed in, or it can also enhance the sub-lows and add super-top air when pulled out.

The M6 Carbine Bass Amp also features a Voice control for instant access to global character changes. Here you'll find 4 iconic, distinct sounds and a bypass on a 5-position rotary pot that graphically shows you the EQ curve for each. To the left, positions 1 and 2 dip the midrange in 2 different places, giving you 2 amazing choices for classic round, warm R&B sounds. Turning right past the 12:00 noon Flat position unveils 2 variations on the mid-bump theme. Positions 4 and 5 boost adjacent mid regions to create 2 powerful mid focused sounds that push articulate fingerstyle playing to the forefront of any mix or add the tight drive to Rock. The Voice control can also be triggered remotely using the rear-panel External Switch jacks. Great tone doesn't get any simpler.

The amp head's DI Level and Master controls make adjusting your playing volume levels quick and easy on stage. The DI Level features both post- and pre-Tone control options, with post being the default (pushed in) setting and Pull Pre activating the pre setting that bypasses the entire preamp. A Tuner Mute pull pot is added to the Master Output control for silent tuning in live or studio applications. This feature can also be triggered remotely from the rear-panel Function Switch jack labeled Mute.

The Rear Panel follows suit with simplicity dictating the layout of the essential features every pro rig should include. Tucked securely between the intake/exhaust vents sit the Function Switch jacks and the speaker outputs. The Function Switch 1/4" jacks provide switch ports to control the Front Panel Voice feature and the Tuner Mute. Connecting any grounding (tip-to-ground) logic switch here will trigger the desired Voice setting or the Mute. This functionality allows settings to be stored under programs in a master external switcher. The speaker outputs use stage-ready Speakon universal connectors, which accommodate both standard 1/4" phone type and Neutrik Speakon locking plugs. A Speaker Impedance switch keeps things in the Output section properly matched and allows you to select between 8- and 4-ohm loads or switch down to 2 ohms for full power with these low-load settings.

The Mesa Boogie M6 Carbine takes all the features you're looking for and combines them with a signature sound that's fast, accurate, and—best of all—easy to dial.
