"Fender has created a Monster Bass Combo! "
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First off, I have a successful YouTube channel where I demo and review guitar gear...and I'm very picky about where and what I spend my hard-earned coinage on!
That being said, I recently was offered a gig as a bassist with a touring band, and needed a solid, portable amp with enough power for nearly any gig without ending up paralyzed from a back injury carrying a 1000lb rig.
Enter the Fender Rumble 500 V3 combo. This thing not only has all the volume you'll need for virtually any gigging environment, but with additional tone shaping options, a footswitchable overdrive circuit, 4 band EQ and seriously lightweight, this is a bassist's dream amp. Great for home practice, studio recording and live work.
This is truly the first amp I've ever had where I'm floored by the tone every time I turn it on. I use a Fender Deluxe Precision Bass Special with Duncan Basslines pickups, and this amp truly has it all. It's easy to dial in funky trebles, rocking and growly midrange tones and HUGE low end for metal, hip-hop, dance, electronica, what have you. It's a versatile MONSTER of an amp, and with a 5 year warranty you're completely covered if some electrical component gives up the ghost.
Get one today, I can virtually guarantee you'll be blown away by the sound and versatility of this amp.
I've been playing music since I was 6 years old...24 years of playing. Currently professionally gigging.
Rock, pop, bluegrass, Americana, funk, covers.
