    I must have read a THOUSAND TIMES here guys saying "If Mesa would make a lightweight more powerful Walkabout I would buy one!!!!"


    Welp..... it's here.
    Mesa Boogie Subway WD-800 WalkAbout Bass Amplifier | MESA/Boogie®

    I fully expect dozens of NAD threads very soon.

    Put your money where your mouth is. Don't berate a manufacturer for not making your perfect amp and then not buy it when they do. ;)

    (I have nothing to do with Mesa. I already own a Walkabout. It is stupid loud and light enough for me.)

    I also want to hear from the folks who said 'If only Mesa would make a Subway 2x12 cabinet I'd buy one in a heartbeat'....

    Yep. That's here too!

    This, alone, requires a poll as to who wanted one and whether they actually buy it, or not. :D

  6. Never said it, don't want one. Might like it as a preamp though. Still wouldn't buy, have an amp.

  7. I’m in SERIOUS gas mode for this amp. It appears to be perfect.

    I just bought a used D800 so give me a couple months, at least. Sheesh.

    In my current situation, I'm sticking with my D800 as well. It's just too darn good and fits in my gigbag. It's in no way inferior to the other Subway amps.

    If the first production rounds aren't immediately sold out, TB is full of liars :D

    It might not be done in a heartbeat, but a WD-800 and Subway 212 will be mine in the hopefully not too distant future.

    I think Mesa would be first to agree that they are expanding the choices in response to customer requests, not making their other products obsolete. When I was beta testing the prototype WD-800 I compared it against my D-800 and the original WA. I do think it sort of outperformed my original WA, but that was the whole point of this new one.

    As for the D-800, the new WD-800 is different, but not better or superior in any way based on my experience with a fair amount of time using it. I liked my D-800 when I bought it and still like it today for the same reasons. The WD-800 is a super head that's hard for a WA lover not to go nuts over, but may not be for everyone, just as the original WA wasn't for everyone. Customers asked for choices and Mesa delivered with a line of quality products to meet differing customer needs.
     
  14. 2x15 and a 2x12?!?!

    Also a tube pre/800 watt power?

    Oh man, I can't afford to be this excited!

    Yesterday was a flurry of info to say the least. I’m quite the fan of my D800+, SW112 and SW115 rig. But, if “some” is good, more is always better... right? At least, that’s what I’ve been trying to explain to my wife :laugh:

    Got a couple weeks off around Christmas so I’ll be driving the 4 hours to Mesa Hollywood on one (or 2 if necessary) of those days. The WD800 has my interest piqued... but that 215? drooldrooldrool

    If it only had 5 strings. No wait, I meant if it only had 4 strings. No, it has to be your bull.
