  1. Early Mesa Fathom bass amplifier, same model later rebadged as the M6 Carbine. Tube preamp combined with a solid-state MOSFET power amp. Pushes 600 watts at either 4 or 2 ohms, 320 watts at 8 ohms, and is very loud, punchy and flexible. Has very flexible tone controls, and if used with a five way footswitch (not included), it is capable of switching between five different preset tone profiles and running a tuner & mute. This sale is for the Mesa head only and does NOT include anything else in the pictures. It’s in great condition and is an amazing amp. Please get in touch if you have any questions. I’m in Bolton and it’s collection only I’m afraid. Cheers Mike.... ps. I have an ABS 3U case available separately if your interested 👍

    Loud mesa head advice

    Hi everyone I'm just after a little help with reducing the output volume on my Mesa M6 Fathom/Carbine head I've recently bought it and used it last night with a Mesa Powerhouse 8 ohm 2x10 and a Precision bass in a large pub. It sounds fantastic but it's stupidly loud with gain on half and the volume on circa 1!!!! Is there any advice to reduce the input maybe and would using the active circuit with my passive bass be detrimental to my sound in any way? Or do I lift the output and just lower the gain.... Thanks Mike

    Scam warning

    Hi everyone Just a heads up with regards to a recent scam that I have sadly experienced on Basschat. I put up a wanted request for a Mesa Boogie M6 and was offered one by a chap called Victor or (Gearlumth) This chap contacted me and supplied a picture and detailed a description, we agreed a price for and I payed via PayPal. When I received notification of payment the icon had chinese writing on it which seemed odd. 3-4 days later after chasing I was told that the amp would be shipped and that it would take 5-6 days to arrive. Later that week I re contacted him to check it was being shipped and received an e-mail stating that he was angry with me and what was the rush. He also stated that it was Salah and that I should have known that. I responded in an appropriate manner as you can imagine. Several days later he said it would be shipped and that 3 days after I would receive shipping info. When he confirmed it had been shipped I requested the info stating that this is supplied either when its posted at the Post Office or booked with a courier. I contacted PayPal and raised my concerns. They agreed it was suspect and asked that wait 10 days to see if the item arrived. I was then contacted by a chinese lady who thanks me for my patience and gave me a tracking number. This was 2.6kg and was travelling from China to Nigeria and was clearly a scam at this stage. They had sent PayPal a fictitious screen shot that said I had requested to send the amp to Nigeria! This had then been signed for and the excuses that I had received were clearly delaying tactics to have a signed delivery confirmation that would allow payment to be completed. This has taken several weeks to resolve but fortunately I have received all of my money back, but please be aware of this thief and his activity as I had another add up for a wanted Mesa cab which he then also offered me during this nonsense. This is clearly a great site with dedicated and honest people on board but sadly some people are out to rob and scam us so beware Contact info used by the scammers: Victor Gear Lumth [email protected] [email protected] All the best Mike
  9. Hi Mike,

    I'm in Swindon but from Lancashire originally and am visiting me mam at the end of the month.

    I'll give you a shout closer to the time and see if the cab's still for sale.

    I've done so much travelling lately, I can't face the journey mate.

      Hi Chewie. Sorry for the slow response. I'm new on here and I' not coming on very often. I'm in Bolton so yes that's fine if you want to come up. I go away on the 25th for a week so be mindful of that. I store the cab at work so please give me notice so I can bring it home. I used it on Sunday with my new Mesa head and it sounded ace.....Cheers Mike 07545 145900 :)
