    They have a 4 KT-88 and an 8 KT-88 model... I'm more interested in the lower power one, it weighs 29 pounds and gives 250 tube watts, which is more than enough for most. Cooler still, it has a half-power switch... I already think Boogie bass gear is the best (I have a Carbine 600 & 2x12 cab), and I was hankering for a good low-to-medium wattage tube bass head, so I'm pretty stoked.

    They look amazing. Too bad they're like $2300 MSRP

    Aaaaand I list noticed there's already a couple threads about this. Oops. Should have checked first. I can't forgive out how to delete the thread, so let's leave this one alone out of good manners. Thanks for the feedback though, I'll have to check one out.

    No such thing as "street price" on Mesa gear; list price is list price. However Pills are Yummy only posted the price of one head.
    The Prodigy is $1799, the Strategy is $2399

    2399 euros here...
    All the Mesa stuff is pretty expensive in Europe.
    Anyway, this amp sounds pretty cool. I'd like to try it.
