Subway TT-800

Boogie Bass 400+ Tube Tone Joined with Proven Subway CLASS-D Power
The Boogie BASS 400+ became a modern day classic used by the world's most talented bassists for two decades. Paul McCartney, Mark King, Stanley Clark, Jack Blades, Michael Anthony, Blasko and Bootsy Collins, are but a few of the international stars across many genres that put the 400+ center stage during its 20-year build cycle. Those iconic tube amps still bring top dollar as recording centerpieces when you can find one changing hands on the pre-owned market. While MESA® has since pioneered two generations of tube-driven mosfet models that held their ground since the 400's heyday, changing times have seen the rise of the acclaimed Class D designs and today it's the Subway Line in the spotlight. Now, in celebration of 50 years of building custom amplifiers, MESA is revisiting Randall Smith's legendary Bass 400 preamp, combining it with the popular Subway® preamp and Class D power to create an exciting 2-Channel model containing the Greatest Hits, past and present. Ultimate Bass 400 Tube Tone and Subway accuracy served up with Dual Channel flexibility combined with Class-D high power and ultraportability.

The SUBWAY® TT-800™ combines a true 2 channel preamp (a classic "BOOGIE CHANNEL" preamp and a "SUBWAY CHANNEL" preamp) along with MESA's rock solid 800 watt, 2 ohm capable class D power amplifier into a bass amp full of the features that are expected by the top players of today.

Product Experience   I own it
Closest Store   White Rock, British Columbia
After owning/playing most everything over the past 50 years, this amp sounds incredible with a variety of basses...The Boogie channel nails the warmth and dynamics of Vintage tube heads from the past. Very skeptical at first about the digital power section, I can say that this head through an SVT 810 or a Mesa Powerhouse 1200 has plenty of headroom for any stage! Also, love the effects loops for each channel!! Buy one! 😎

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
