  3. 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

    Italia Maranello 4 string

    A brilliant bass that has been designed by Trev Wilkinson. It’s in sparkle gold with the cream back and headstock. They look cool and sound ace and are used by Nikki Wire from The Manic Street Preachers. Great build quality that have a totally unique look and feel. Will suit many musical genres and gets great commentary about its look. I have to many basses so this and a Rimini are being sold. Please email with any questions and this sale included a full soft protective case (not a bag). This bass has had a full rewire including new CTS pots and new Gotoh machine heads. It has a few minor marks and very small cracks in the trim but nothing to effect the guitar at all. Your very welcome to come and try it out if your local. Collection only....Thanks Mike

    Bass Pod XT Pro

    Used but in really good condition and surplus to requirements. It's been in a rack for a while so whilst it has marks ect this does not impact on the Pod. Hundreds and hundreds of sounds and includes a patch library CD that has not been installed yet. Comes with a mains lead and USB patch lead for installing downloads from the LIne 6 site. Can be seen working and can be used in a studio or a live rig. i.e. Power amp and cab...There is a very slight wobble on the output knob but it works fine and there are no noises from it. Please get in touch with any question and these usually sell for just over £200 so grab a bargain....
