    I was comparing the Fender Rumble 15 head to head with the Ampeg BA-108 both of them I have. The Ampeg has more features and a larger footprint, a nice deep tone and does a good job. My Ampeg has a considerable "ac hum" that is constent (fairly low volume but irritating) not much noticeable when playing but certainly noticable in the quiet inbetween times. Both of these amps sell for about the same money, the Fender is dead quiet when not amplifying a signal and perhaps a little less muddy than the Ampeg but that may have to do with my settings. The Fender Rumble is the one I use most often as I am quit sensative to the ac hum of the ampeg. In a direct comparision the Ampeg could fudge out the Fender on sound by a slight margin, the fender has good clearity. I like tha Ampeg BA-108 featues and overall sound but I seem unable to tolerate the hum, flip a coin, I see I'm using the Fender Rumble 15 with the greater satisfaction. Both of these are great amps for the price. Hope the review is helpfull, I know I read every review I could find as I reseached these amps. I salute MF for posting reviews.
    I have seen better features in this price range but most of those "features" don't outshine the simple straight forward work this amp does. Fender Rumble 15.
    Everything works as represented, no loose parts, good cover and protection and nice simple front layout. The amp is quiet when not amplifying a input signal, no "hum", very very little white noise. The sound is solid and it works well with other instraments (guitar and lap steel) also the cd imput does a nice job. Fender Rumble 15.
    Fender Rumble 15, a good practice amp, when I say you get what you paid for that's a compliment!

    The amp is fine in terms of quality. Most people using a cheaper bass will notice a lot of static/interference noise, but with my American p-bass the amp is no noisier than normal for a practice amp.

    It puts out a decent amount of volume for such a small speaker - if you're living in an apartment or with other humans, this will give all the volume you need and then some. I don't think there's any reason to move up in watts unless you know you need more.

    I prefer the carpeted exterior of the old version of the Rumbles, but the new ones look a little sharper.

    The little Rumble will serve you just fine as a practice amp or when playing with a friend or two, but I think there are better values out there at this price point.
    This little practice box doesn't have any features to speak of, it's basically just an input jack and a speaker. There's a low/mid/high EQ and a master volume.

    The input is the old style "CD in", so you can forget about playing with your iPod. The headphone jack is the old, larger style, so unless you have headphones that fit it, you'll need to buy an adapter. There's no "line out", which would be useful for a beginner in recording their practices.
    The above average standard of quality you expect from Fender is present here. I'm using a thirdhand Rumble 15 for bedroom practice. It's taken a few knocks and works just fine. Knobs fit tightly and dial precisely, and the construction is rugged enough. I expect it would last forever if you didn't damage the speaker.
    This was a good value 5 years ago, but today you can get a practice amp with a line in, line out, and a modern headphone jack for the same price. Fender should update this line, in my opinion.

      Good little amp. Sounds good and small enough to carry around for some jamming with my buds. Not expected to be a stage performing amp...it's only fifteen watts.

      Comments about Fender Rumble 15 V2 15W 1x8 Bass Combo Amp:

      I needed a bass amp for in-house jamming and recording. It's great for these purposes. It is totally quiet, very warm and free of distortion, even when it's cranked. It has a fantastic tone. I gave it 4 stars because it's underpowered. I'm playing a Fender Fretless Jazz bass through it and it clearly wouldn't cut it with most of the drummers I've had. I will be using it with the DTXplorer kit I have so it's not an issue for me. Go to the next amp up for more power.

        Comments about Fender Rumble 15 V2 15W 1x8 Bass Combo Amp:

        I'm really impressed with this little amp. I bought it for home practice,and couldn't be happier.

        Sound is really easy to setup due to a three band EQ, and have a lot of power, and I really mean a lot...

        You won't believe that it's just 15 watts. Sound is great with no distortion at all, I have a Cort GB5 active bass with really hot Seymor-Duncan pickups and the sound I can get out of this amp is just amazing.

        I really recommend it to anyone, is a great value!

        This bass amp is amazing! No problems, I even tried on it with a bass I found in the street and it sounded fine. I have played in some jam sessions with this amp. I could hear it over a keyboard, vocals, 2 electric guitars, and a drum set!!! The one thing is, that the amp doesn't have very many features. If you play concerts you're going to need a bigger amp though.

          great little amp! really rugged and powerful. bought this amp thinking it would be real quiet and could turn it up high in my condo but no way hardly turn the volume on and i have great sound and thump that my neighbors are sure not to love. i find it even better it doesnt have all the effects on it, being originally a guitar player i find it better to have a clean amp with pedals. great buy!

            Comments about Fender Rumble 15 V2 15W 1x8 Bass Combo Amp:

            I have an acoustic bass guitar and the guitar is louder than this amp. This is a box, where is the AMP? I guess I was expecting to actual be able to HEAR something. Its not much louder than my iphone. When I plug my iphone into it, its just a bunch of distortion - NO BASS at all. Iphone sounds better with a little dock I have. Thoroughly dissapointed. Sending this back...

            I was comparing the Fender Rumble 15 head to head with the Ampeg BA-108 both of them I have. The Ampeg has more features and a larger footprint, a nice deep tone and does a good job. My Ampeg has a considerable "ac hum" that is constent (fairly low volume but irritating) not much noticeable when playing but certainly noticable in the quiet inbetween times. Both of these amps sell for about the same money, the Fender is dead quiet when not amplifying a signal and perhaps a little less muddy than the Ampeg but that may have to do with my settings. The Fender Rumble is the one I use most often as I am quit sensative to the ac hum of the ampeg. In a direct comparision the Ampeg could fudge out the Fender on sound by a slight margin, the fender has good clearity. I like tha Ampeg BA-108 featues and overall sound but I seem unable to tolerate the hum, flip a coin, I see I'm using the Fender Rumble 15 with the greater satisfaction. Both of these are great amps for the price. Hope the review is helpfull, I know I read every review I could find as I reseached these amps. I salute MF for posting reviews.
