The Subway Bass DI-Preamp pedal combines the most essential features of Mesa Boogie's Subway D-800 amplifier - in a compact format with convenient connectivity options. The perfect "grab and go" solution for bassists who prioritise portability over sheer power, the Subway DI-Preamp pumps out unmistakable Mesa bass through any connected PA system or audio interface - making it a fantastic live and studio tool.

Unparalleled Control

There are lots of bass preamp pedals out there, but Mesa Boogie's Subway Bass DI-Preamp is a cut above most. With switchable input settings, you can optimise the input gain depending on the pickups in your bass guitar - whether passive or active. Able to cater for practically any bass, the DI-Preamp's comprehensive control-set adds to its versatility too.

Featuring classic shelving-type tone controls that handle the bass and treble frequencies, these essential tone-sculpting dials are accompanied by a semi-parametric mid band that enables precise shaping of the mid-range, with a switchable 'deep' mode to round out the voicing options.

Plenty of Output Options

The DI-Preamp boasts balanced XLR preamp and direct outputs with a pin 1 lift feature for both, as well as a pre/post source switch for the direct output to handle stage and front-of-house duties. An unbalanced ¼” preamp out expands the interconnect possibilities even further.

When you need great tone and flexibility on the fly dates, or simply want a backup standing ready in the gig bag - the Subway Bass DI-Preamp offers maximum tone for minimum carry.
