OVERVIEW

Introducing the M3 Carbine™– Bassists around the globe are raving about the MESA CARBINE Line of Bass amplifiers. They love the instantaneous attack, unparalleled clarity, focused definition and authoritative punch of the CARBINE M6 and M9. When something’s this good … you gotta find a way to share it with everyone!

The New M3 packs the same ultra-fast, naturally musical Carbine preamp and TRANS-CLASS™ power as its big-power siblings. This new package satisfies all the Tone requirements of discriminating bassists while being truly wallet-friendly.

Power-wise the M3 weighs in at 300 watts produced by the warm, yet super responsive mosfet power block. This linear mosfet powerplant combines the best sonic attributes of tube circuits – warmth and musicality – with the immediate response, lower mass and lighter weight of solid state designs.

The M3 is available as a 2U Rack Chassis or a 1x12 Combo based on our popular 1x12 POWERHOUSE™ cabinet. Match the rack head up with one of our many amazing 10, 12 or 15-loaded POWERHOUSE Cabs or travel light, but confidently, with the M3 Combo (shown at right). Either way you’ll roll with Tone that‘ll inspire.

The New M3 CARBINE makes Custom, Hand Built, American Made quality accessible to any bassist who wants more from their amp. Our Customers have been trusting us to build fine musical instruments for Bass since 1969.

Think MESA for Bass.
