Bodai-28/MAS1,8 Bass Loudspeaker Combo

SKU/ID: 08Bodai28 COMBO

Price: $1,550.00

Ciare Super Tweeter:
PA Hat (for pole):
Notes to Mike:


The ultimate gig/practice/studio/monitor combo! Use the MAS-1,8 for small gigs, practice, or studio work. Break out the Bodai-28 for larger gigs and maybe add the MAS1,8 as a supplemental floor wedge. Got a big gig (larger than a High School Gym)? Stack the Bodai-28 atop the MAS-1,8 for MAS 38 Special style bass dominance! This is all the loudspeaker gear most players will ever need and at a cost savings.

The Bodai is the newest evolution of MVW speaker cabinets from MAS. We've implemented what we've learned and from bass player's suggestions.

The biggest feature of the Bodai is the top section. Vortex loaded Faital midrange drivers.Power,world class fidelity, high output, and unbelievable size/weight ratio.

My favorite for double bass. My favorite for electric bass. (well---I like the Bodai 112 for EB, too!) Amazing power and weight to each note.

The lowest extension of any of my cabs .Size/weight ratio---fagettaboutit!

Amazing fidelity. These are being used for PA as well as home hifi, but designed first and foremost as the best electric/upright speaker that I can produce

This is my gigging cab. Fidelity, dispersion and world-leading bass extension. Thought that extension to 35hz is impractical for a gigging bassist? Think again.
Imagine playing staccato 16th's on the B string. No overhang between notes. No loading the stage with boomy bass.
