    Specs from online:

    In designing the M9 Carbine bass amplifier, Mesa Boogie took the recent success of the M6 Carbine as their compass point and set out to create a full featured, high power version of this simple, intuitive platform.


    Bassists around the world responded overnight to the clarity, on-demand attack, and crystal-clear definition of the M6's Trans-Class all-tube preamp and MOSFET power. They love that it's easy to dial and yet offers all the versatility they need via the power of the rotary Voice feature.

    The next step in the evolution of this Mesa Boogie M9 Carbine Bass Amplifier was obvious. Add substantially more power and endow the preamp with a full set of studio-quality EQ and dynamic
    features.

    Now the M9 Carbine escalates the race with a mighty 900 watts (into 4 ohms) of Trans-Class power and yet still harnesses all that energy within 2 rack spaces. The Carbine speed, punch and detail can now be delivered at big-venue volume levels and leave all but the bravest souls with ample headroom in reserve. The Carbine preamp also gets super-charged in the M9 with the addition of a 9 Band Graphic EQ featuring long-throw faders that can be put in-line all the time or triggered via the included footswitch. The EQ also incorporates a Voice Defeat feature that can turn off a selected Voice Mode when the 9-band EQ is triggered by the Footswitch. This gives you instant access to an additional sound during performance.

    Dynamics can be manipulated on the Mesa Boogie M9 bass amp head with the addition of the on-board Compressor that features both Threshold and Ratio controls for studio-quality processing. Fine-tune both the attack characteristics and the amount of gain reduction with these powerful controls that interface seamlessly to the Carbine's toneful preamp.

    9-Band EQ
    A 9-band studio-quality graphic EQ spreads the shaping power across 9 Bands ranging from 33Hz to 8Khz for ultimate fine tuning and can be triggered on all the time or footswitched.

    Compressor
    Full-featured compressor gives you complete control of dynamics and includes Threshold control for sensitivity adjustment and RATIO for gain reduction.

    Footswitch
    Live performance is enhanced with the ability to add the 9-band Graphic on the fly giving you a second sound on command and Tuner MUTE allows silent tuning.

    If absolute power corrupts, Mesa's guilty. And you will be too when you feel the authority of your instrument through the Mesa Boogie M9 Carbine Bass Amp Head.

    Hi,
    If this is still available, would you consider a Mesa Boogie Subway D800 amp in trade?
    Thanks,
    Ron
