The D800 is an absolute monster of a bass head packed with useful functions for the gigging and studio bass player.
With a fully active 4-band EQ you can really sculpt your bass tone and running the head at 800w, you're going to want as much control as possible to ensure your sound isn't swamped in low-end. The D800 does retain sparkle and clarity even at high volumes and as you can expect, has a fat kick with the low notes, but without getting muddy.
The amp is lightweight and has a solid state pre and class D poweramp which also gives you the option of optimising the head for an active or a passive bass and as you would expect from Mesa Boogie, the amp is built like a tank, ready for the road.
