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.

Must have for beginner bassists

By Luke Rossetti

from New York

See all my reviews

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

This amp is great. It sounds great, it's a great price, it gets pretty loud for its size, and it looks pretty cool. It's extremely light on features, but the people buying this amp won't need them anyway (I certainly don't). This amp won't replace your Ampeg half stack, but if you're a beginner in need of a quality amp, don't think twice. You won't find any cheaper options.
Features are pretty light, but for the price you can't really look for high end features. The simple interface has only a volume, and a 3 band EQ (to adjust the Bass, Mid, and Treble, if you don't know). This little guy also has a headphone jack, and an auxiliary jack for your iPod or what have you. The simplicity is actually for the best, that way even newer players won't be in over their heads.
Fender always makes good stuff, so you know you didn't get ripped off. For such a small amp, the volume and tone is pretty good. It can get loud, although it does get shaky around 8. The sound quality is really good, I use an older Squier Jazz bass (bought them both together used). I play guitar mainly, so I just like having bass stuff in the house for bass playing friends. We even use it for jams sometimes and its plenty loud and sounds really great.
This much for an amp that is built this sturdy is nuts. If you don't purposely break it, you'll have it forever. Dinner and a tank of gas will run you way more than this amp (especially if you buy it used).

For A Fender Bass Amp - I Can't But Rate It A 5.0

By Lanternlite

from Austin, Texas

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

This little box delivered a lot more than I expected for less than $100. In fact this amp can be used playing small venues such as coffee houses, etc, as you are not playing heavy metal with a power drummer or some other heavy powered music. When I buy Fender I expect quality and durability. Again, with the Rumble 15, quality and durability was delivered. To me Fender is to guitars and amps what Harley is to motorcycles.

Great amp!

By Whytlash

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

Looks good, sounds good, portable, lightweight, and it's a Fender.
I'm a longtime guitar player and decided I'd like to learn to play bass. I wanted decent stuff but didn't want to throw too much money at it in case I didn't like it, or was really bad at it, etc. You know how it goes! I did a bit of reading and research and pretty much everything pointed at the Fender Rumble 15 as a perfect starter/practice amp. After a few weeks of bump and thump I can say that this is a great amp for the money and a perfect starter amp, or practice amp. It puts out plenty of sound, and the eq controls shape the sound well. Heck, it even works well for 6 string guitar so I don't have to have multiple amps cluttering up my living room! If you want to spend a little money for a lot of amp, this is perfect. Just remember it's 15 watts with an 8 inch speaker," so ""little"" and ""lot"" are relative", but you won't be disappointed.
It's a Fender.

Awesome little amp

By Jeffrey Tenney

from Ohio

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

I bought this little amp and I brought it home and plugged it in and could not believe how good it sounded for such a little guy!! I have to say that as far as sound quality I would put this little rumble up against my big Crate. The rumble is however only 15 watts and wouldnt have the same power but sound quality is as good if not better than my bigger amp!! No joke! If you're looking for a great little amp for next to nothing this little guy is the amp I mean heck most of us spend this much just filling our vehicle at the gas station how can you loose LOL!! Geat Job Fender!!!

Great practice amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

I bought this amp to use at home as a practice amp, and it does the job quite nicely. It's very loud, and the tone is excellent. I am shocked at how good the tone is. It sounds better than any other amp its size and i'd put it up against some bigger amps as far as sound quality goes. The aux in jacks let's you plug into your pc, ipod, or whatever and practice along to music and be ready for your next gig.Great amp, and best value for a practice amp.

Looks like Fender fixed the main problem with this amp, the carpet covering, which caught every hair my dog shed.I've used mine as a practice amp, in my shop to test guitars & I now use it as a keyboard amp. It does all three well.A REAL Fender amp at a great value.

Perfect room smp

By E15

from okc, Ok

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

5 years ago i got my 1st bass, a washburn xb100bant,and this little guy.As a 12 year old rockstar as you can imagine these went through hell. The bass didnt survive but this little thing did. I still have it simply because its just what i need for home. It puts out a nice sound though the three knobs limit you from getting just the right sound,you can stilll get pretty close. Since its just 15watt i dont use it for gigs but its not made for that. Bottom line if you are thinking about starting bass this would be a good starting amp. The fender rumble 15v215w1x8 Would be a good present to your kid because of cost size and fender Quality.

Rumble On

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

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

This little amp has the goods. The few knobs it has on it do the basics nd really showed the true character of my active cirrus five string. it gives you good volume and tone though a small and affordable package. you wont be able to crank it in a normal band setting but its perfect for jamming practicing and the like. No background buzz or fuzz which i noticed seems to be almost a fender bass amp trademark. from the first time i plugged it in i jammed for a good 3-4 hours and was astonished at the variation and clarity this small amp provides. If you need a small practice amp you wont find anything compareable in the price range.

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

Hey - it's not a Mesa Boogie Bass 400. It's an 8 inch speaker in a small enclosed box with a 15 watt amp. It doesn't sound like a big-dog amp. But, it's a great little practice amp for bass. Don't expect anymore, and you won't be dissappointed. The headphone and stereo in jacks are a plus. I also play my synth through it. Fender quality you've come to expect.

i bought this amp a while ago and so far am very pleased with it. i really can't believe the sound that comes out of it! when i went to get an amp at a local guitar store i first plugged into a little 10 watt with a bunch of really cool features but it sounded horrible then i plugged into this and the diffrence was purely amazing! this amp does not have all the cool features of the other amp but it makes up for it in sound quality.

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

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.
