Mesa M-Pulse vs. Bass400/400+

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by FireBug, Dec 26, 2005.

  1. M-Pulse (5 band semi-parametric), not all tube

  2. Bass 400/400+ (6 or 7 band graphic EQ), all tube

    The M-Pulse series is one of the most versatile amps I have ever played, probably the most versatle so far (because of the semi-parametric EQ). I've been giving serious thought to trading up to a Boogie all tube head. I have a couple of questions though.

    I usually boost about 35Hz on the M-Pulse, but the Bass 400/400+ starts at 40Hz. Has anyone ever missed being able to boost the lower frequencies?

    What frequency is the extra band on the Bass 400+?

    Which amp do you feel is more versatile, the M-Pulse with a 5 band semi-parametric EQ, or the Bass 400/400+ with the set 6 or 7 band graphic EQ? Why?

    And last, but not least, would you pick "all tube tone" over "versatility with some tube tone"?

    Thanks guys.
