Used, in good working condition with some normal cosmetic signs of use throughout. A beastly head in a compact and well-made package! Mesa never fails to impress in the bass department and this head is no exception. Does not include speaker cable or other accessories, but check out our shop online or get in touch directly if you'd like to add anything to your order.

From Mesa Boogie (specs may differ slightly):

In addition to the standard array of rotary Tone controls in the tube preamp, the WalkAbout features a 3-Band Semi-Parametric EQ for infinite control of the sound. Begin your shaping with the Active BASS and TREBLE controls and fill in the midrange with the classic response of the broad-band Passive MID. Once you’re in the zone with the smooth, easy to dial nature of these preamp Tone controls, address any finer points by notching or boosting specific frequencies with the 3-Band Semi-Parametric EQ controls. There you have 15dB of cut or boost over the entire frequency range from 30Hz to12KHz.

Our Simul-State Power uses the “always on” nature of tubes to harness instant attack and incredible musicality in the driver stage in combination with the tight-tracking low end and bold authority of mosfets as the power device. Mosfets offer the best sonic attributes of both tube associated warmth and solid-state style authority and urgent feel. The combined technology in Simul-State is a new sound and truly does incorporate the best of both worlds.

The WalkAbout is equally at home in the studio and on the gig. It’s Rear Panel features an XLR Balanced Direct Output that captures the warm, balanced sound of the entire tube preamp and EQ options. A GROUND/LIFT switch removes the circuit Ground from Chassis ground to help eliminate grounding problems when interfacing to a Console. A Series EFFECTS LOOP is also fitted to the Rear Panel and the LOOP can be hard bypassed for those purists who don’t use much processing and prefer absolute signal purity.
