Fender Rumble 500 V3 Bass Combo Amplifier (500 Watts, 2x10")

Fender's biggest Rumble has three unique voicings and a killer overdrive section to give you total control of this amp's huge tone on stage or in the studio.

The Rumble Series is a mighty leap forward in the evolution of portable bass amps. Re-engineered from the ground up, new Rumble amps are lighter and louder than ever, with even more power and a classic Fender vibe. A newly developed footswitchable overdrive circuit and versatile three-button voicing palette deliver powerful tones ideal for any gig. Additional upgrades include Eminence drivers and premium HF compression tweeters.

After years of using a backbreaking combination of heavy speaker cabinets with separate amp heads, I was looking for something with power, great tone, and low weight. I finally settled on getting the Rumble 500 combo, and would add a companion cabinet when ready. This amp, out of the box, is fantastic. I was able to dial in a nice, meaty bass tone right away, with all the EQ knobs at noon and none of the shape buttons engaged. With the Vintage button in, there is a volume increase and a bit of compression on the tone, and adds some depth to the low end, and is perhaps my favorite thing about this amp. The bright button does what you would expect, and the contour basically gives you the scooped tone, great for slap. Overdrive is cool, though I don't know how much I will use it. The light weight of the amp is fantastic at 36 lbs, not a back breaker at all. I recently purchased the new Fender 210 cabinet, which pairs up nicely with the 500 combo and is very loud. With just the combo I can easily be heard in most band situations, the added cabinet comes in handy for when more volume is needed. My only real quibble is that the combo doesn't have a tuner out with a mute, something that I was used to having on my previous amp, but I guess I will get used to it. I highly recommend this amp!
