    I got mine three years ago and have gigged with it constantly. Over the last year, I have used it in a classic rock band at full volume to keep up with the guitarist and a thumpin' loud drummer. It has never failed despite that abuse. After three years, I did lose a caster, but other than that... no problems.The adaptive compression works well at various volumes.Tone controls are simple and effective.XLR line-out is a big plus.The light is cheezy, but fun when drunks see it.As always, Fender is more concerned with short-term profit than long-term customer satisfaction, so they are going to discontinue this model which is why it is on clearance. What Fender will really do: sell the same thing at a higher price with a different name. So if you want a good solid portable amp for small venues, get this now before the giant corporation flexes its greed-muscle.

    This is the rental amp I used last night on a Jazz gig. It barely kept up.It is muddy and indistinct in the low end. That is undoubtedly due to the cheap speaker, cheap piezo tweeter and the full-time compression. Cheap amps like this one absolutely need compression to protect the Weak components. If this amp is reliable, it is not because it was properly engineered. Its dependability comes from the low-power amp with an over-compressed protection circuit mated to a cheeze-ball speaker. I have not seen the speaker specifications for this amp, and Fender does not publish them. I can tell you from experience though, its "Fs" or "resonant frequency" is not suited to good clear bass. It has strange artifacts from low E up to Ab, which indicates the Fs is too close to 41 Hz. The speaker reacts erratically so that low notes are unintelligible. The effects is so pronounced that several times during the night I had to look at my fingers to make sure I was playing in the right key.This amp has simple controls that are easy to understand. That's good. It has Red Lights in the slotted port that react to every note. That is either cool or cheezy depending on your age and mindset. It has a switch in the back to turn the lights off. That's good. The fact that it has a line out is definitely good, because this thing can't produce much volume, even for a Jazz gig at a small nightclub. One look at the tiny transformer case on the back of the amp will tell you; this is NOT a heavy duty amplifier. The power rating is undoubtedly hyped by rating it at peak output into 4 ohms, instead of RMS output into 8 ohms. The only advantage to that arrangement is that this is a lightweight amp and with the provided wheels, it is very easy to move. I play standard four string and acoustic upright. If you play rock music with dropped tunings or a five string, this is not the amp you want.If you can get one cheap and never play low or loud, it will probably do OK.As it is, this is just another example of how Fender imports cheap gimmicky products that are grossly overpriced. However, that is not to say this amp doesn?t have a use! Because of its compression circuit and speaker Fs, it could serve as a decent guitar amp for clean sounds, or as the monitor for a guitarist that uses a digital preamp.

    Fender Rumble 100

    By oldforgerider

    from Undisclosed

    I bought this amp about 4 years ago. First let me say that this amp is built pretty darn good. Mine has fallen off buses, fallen over numerous times, left in the heat, the cold, in the car, being ridden down the hallway...etc etc. It has yet to fail me. However, the only thing that has happened is that after numerous practices, gigs, and comps, the wheels have fallen off the bottom, not slipped out, but the screws were ripped out of the bottom. Other than that, it has never let me down, and for that i am grateful. Now, on to tone. This is where this amp slightly lacks for me nowadays. Before, it sounded fine, but being a music major has changed my ear greatly, and to me this amp leaves alot to be desired overall. To me, the amp sounds 'scooped'. Like its all mids, the bass is boomy and the trebles are exaggerated. The EQ is decent, but doesn't yield great results. I use an Epiphone Accu Bass Jr and a Fender Deluxe Active Jazz. Both suffer from the same charateristics of the amp. The volume is satisfactory for practicing and jamming with my band. We play hard rock and metal, so it needs to provide. Also, I've used this amp in jazz bands with my double bass and electric bass and there is plenty of volume here, so its good that way. Overall, its durable, has satisfactory volume, and ok tone. Its priced a bit high, but I'd say check it out first and see if you dig it then make a decision.

    Hiss hiss hiss

    By starvinzombie

    from Los Angeles, CA

    The amp is very solid and the headphone feature is invaluable. The 15'' speaker really does give you a rumble. It can handle effect pedals and won't distort crazy on higher volumes. But the amp's tone and volume really come out when you have a good bass. When I first started playing I had a less than descent bass and eager to try this out at practice, with it boasting 100 watts. I was only audible with near max out volume, poor thing was drowned out at 7 and 8 settings. I was terribly dissapointed and when I was forced to go into higher volumes this hiss started screaming out of the poor thing. After messing with the EQ I found out if you have any levels of treble it hisses like no tomorrow. Reading more reviews I found out it had something to do with the amps tweeter. I'm stuck with the amp now since my return day policy is long been over, it's not bad, but I wish I would've just waited and saved more money for a better amp. Even with a better bass that hissing just drives me crazy.

    AWSOME FOR THE $

    By Rock n Rolla

    from Sacramento, CA

    I bought this amp over a year ago as a practice amp with my band. Its louder than youd expect for a 100 watt amp, by far. I've used it at small/medium sized gigs and had no problem hearing it along with the rest of the boys. Ive had no problems at all with it. You wont find anything better for the money in my poinion. Congrats to Fender on another awsome product.

    Gotta Get that thud

    By Keglor

    from Chi-town

    This amp is great for any small/medium gig if your looking for a nice thick low end. This thing pushes nice thick bass tones with both passive and active pickups. But if you want a trebly bass tune, go with the Ampeg 100 watt 115 combo. I also have no complaints about the quality or tone of the amp. Plus if you do, you have 5 years to work it out.

    Wonderful Amp!!!!!!

    By svoigt17

    from Asheville, N.C.

    I bought this amp earlier today and I can already tell I'm gonna love this monster! I turned it up halfway and my chest thumped and my ears hurt. Not that meany extra features but, hey, thats what effects pedals are for. Although, the stage light is a pretty darn cool extra. My favorite part is the 5-year warranty! Gotta love the guys at Fender! If you need an amp with more power, no bells or whistles, and an unbeatable price, buy this thing!

    Fender Rumble Bass 100 1x15 Combo Amp

    By Metalbassist

    from Tampa, Florida

    The only 2 features that are really important about this amp are the 4 band rotary eq and the xlr line out. The rest are just added flare that do not affect the tonality of the amp. The Pros:The 4 band EQ of Low, Low Mid, High Mid, and High, allow you dial in a few different usable tones. It has adequate bass, mids that will cut through the mix, and pretty crisp highs. The XLR line out is also a valuable feature because it will allow this 100 watt amp to run into a p/a and allow you to play larger size venues. The amps construction quality is very good. It can handle the abuse of the road.The Cons:The amp does not handle louder volumes too well and will begin to sound muddy and distort when you have to open it up, hence another reason that line out is so important, you can maintain a decent tone on stage while throwing the louder tone to the audience. All in all for the money its a good enough amp to get you by until you can afford something better.

    Big Rumble, Little Amp

    By FenderJPete22

    from Boston, MA

    I have an SWR workingman's 4x10 half stack at my parents house and wanted a smaller amp for college. I've been playing in a few bands and need a small combo for bars, jazz gigs, and coffee houses. This fender sounds amazing. It has big bottom, rich mid range and all in a small package. I play my Fender jazz through it and it sounded just as good, if not better than my SWR. The plucked lows sound thick and the slap is crunchy and really cuts through. This amp is a win for sure. I trust the fender name because there stuff is top notch, even the entry level.

    very reliable bass amp

    By Kuz

    from walla walla, washington

    I bought this amp to keep up with my old band's guitar amps. It performed perfectly. With my current set up of a ESP LTD F-404 and this amp I can easily shake things off my wall with the volume not even a quater the way up on both the amp and my guitar. I hardly have to turn it up. It also sounded great with my old Squier bass. Plus the light on the bottom is pretty cool it dosn't keep up perfectly to your beats but still sweet. Over all I haven't had one single problem with this amp and it even made it threw my move from Alaska to Washington only wrapped in cardboard! Perfect for bassists looking for a good value buy that wont break the bank
