Mesa Boogie M-Pulse WalkAbout
(Originally written by Valerypellegrini/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

See below.


Very easy and effective use. You just turn a knob and the sound changes notably. It's a very intuitive amp head, you'll immediately find the sound you want.


The EQ is quite useful to shape the sound, the input gain is perfect to get a very round sound or a punchy tone with a slight saturation. I use it with an active Ibanez for a full and accurate sound or with a Jazz Bass for a vintage tone. The tube preamp has a strong influence on the overall sound of the amp.


Excellent value for money. The amp head is easy to transport thanks to its small size and light weight, the slip cover and the shoulder strap.

Mesa Boogie M-Pulse WalkAbout
300W amp preamp tube, transistor amplification
1 input jack, active passive switch / - output jack
The EQ is very intuitive and efficient: this is one of the strengths of this amp


Configuration is very simple. All afternoon and it already sounds very good. The bass is great (I have a 115 and a 210 of the same brand, it helps) and the adjustment range of mediums is very important.


Sure lamps and brand go to the rock ... to the sound track eliott, iron.
The amp can approach almost all the sounds in blues and rock record. Compared to Ampeg, I think we lose the vintage side of sound in the mids and bass are a little less round.
on the other hand, there is gaining momentum, attack, sustain in, heat ... For me no picture at the same price between two brands.


I use it for 1 year after going through Markbass and Hartke. The comparison is unnecessary, the range is not the same. The effect is immediate live: no need to force the volume to penetrate the mix! To 10/10, would have had to do all the weight of a Markbass, but this is missed (not so much the amp but the speakers is the beast 32Kg) ...
A redo: obviously (as I have the biceps to wear ...)

Mesa Boogie M-Pulse WalkAbout
AX7 tube preamp 2
MOS FET amplifier 300W RMS
Adjustment: Gain-Grave-medium-high-band parametric equalizer 3-Master.
2 HP Output jack
An effects loop
No output tuner.


Super easy to use.


Its huge. Beautiful grain, especially in the bass. Suitable for all styles but with a tendency rock, heavy, blues or rhythm and blues.


I use a 2x10 "and 15" Mesa. After owning moult amps (lamps and transistors), I think I've found the right this time.
A board, save it's worth it.

See features on the manufacturer's website

Already the first bad surprise: the output of DI, which I use for recording, is controlled at the master, so the master button must be at least 12 and the level knob for DI donf have a proper output level, suddenly it pummeled to death in the Hp (not cool for the neighbors!), or it must disconnect the head! Unheard of: o (

Two very big surprises: after only 2 months of use, without the head was never carried one time for a gig, then remained only in home studio, Intermittent crackling appeared at frequencies of closer and closer together, SUN and HP! A trick phew!

I turned my head dealer of course check on the lights, but nada! Suddenly, the head is distributed to the importer, who has kept more than one month and finally returned to me ... but without having solved the problem, abused!

So, I asked my dealer to take up this excellent mind that I did not want to keep longer, and to exchange it for one finally Portabass Ampeg PB800 head that I should receive soon ...

I invite you to read the testimonies of former owners of the Walkabout head on, you will not be disappointed ... they all had technical problems with fairly quickly, often related to weakness in electronics ...


Rather easy to use.

The manual ... English only ... confirms the principle of enslavement DI / Master and explains that if we want to separate the two, as is the case on most amps, simply contact them to get the wiring diagram and edit. to make yourself ... What about the warranty? very risky if you're not a pro in electronics and soldering iron! Well, another bad point!


The sound is good enough ... until there is no crackling!


This is normally the stuff of high-end, mine cost me close to 1400 euros anyway, and finally I was very disappointed with this purchase (poor reliability, bp DI, and what Can it give after several concerts ???). Advice, avoid buying this head!
