    Fantastic full sounding tone, esp with the "pull deep" with the bass set lower around 9 o'clock. :oops:

    Played through a 4x10 powerhouse cab.

    I think I love BOOGIE bass gear as much as my Studio&quad pre/295 poweramp guitar rack.

    They do produce clear lows...sigh...if only I had the scratch. Thanks for the GAS!

    It gave me second thoughts about ordering the shuttle 9.0!

    I have both the Shuttle 9 and M9. The Shuttle sees no gigs and IMHO cannot keep up with the Carbine in terms of tone or volume. YMMV. PM me if you wanna buy my Shuttle.

    ROFL. "Hey this amp isn't as good. Wanna buy it?" :oops:

    I quite liked my Shuttle 6.0 when I had it, but after my first Mesa amp, I was hooked. The Shuttle sounded thin and 2 dimensional compared to any of my Mesa amps. I still think the Shuttles are great amps but Mesa gear is in a whole other league of tone. The Carbine really is a unique animal. Its so clear and deep but not sterile at all. The tube still adds character and warmth but the amp is so crisp and powerful. I can't believe how insanely good it sounds through any cab I try it with.

    Yeah, I was floored by it. I will def get a Boogie head eventually. :bassist::bassist:

    It will match my guitar rig. :D

    It's hard to go wrong with Mesa-Boogie, but it'll cost ya.

    I'm always willing to pay for good gear.

    After I got my VHT Sig:X and my MESA rack I've never even looked at cheap guitar amps.
