OVERVIEW

Superb Fender bass tone and performance at an unbeatable value.

The 150W Fender Rumble 150 Bass Combo Amp lets you rule stage and studio alike with unrivaled impunity. That's because it pumps 150 watts through a 15" Fender Special Design Speaker and a piezo horn (for highs), and you can blend adjusted-to-taste overdrive with pure, clean bass tone for first-rate Fender bass sound. Other useful-in-real-life features include a horn on/off switch, XLR output, four-band active EQ with "punch" and "scoop" presets, spring-loaded side handles and removable casters, all in a ported, rugged and easily portable enclosure.

The full-featured Rumble 150 bass combo features a professionally voiced pre-amp and a high efficiency digital power amplifier, a vented cabinet design for enhanced bass response, quiet variable speed fan cooling, and a piezo horn with on/off switch. Get a killer overdrive effect with the help of the gain and blend controls (footswitchable with optional footswitch), optimized for bass to give mellow warmth or heavy distorted tones. The Punch and scoop preset EQ shapes are ideal for finger and slap style tones. The 4-band active EQ delta comp adaptive compression circuitry gives you even tone, without losing the finer details of your sound. The included line out is great for direct recording or live use, and the combo also features a headphone jack for silent jamming and practicing. An included auxilliary input works great for CD/MP3, tape or drum machine to help you get into the mix and work out your rhythms and tempos. Black vinyl covering, rugged black metal grille, and nickel corners round out the sturdy shell to this combo.

Ive used the Fender Rumble 100 watt version for over 5 years, and it worked flawlessly in any gig scenario, including many out-door concerts. When a friend wanted to buy this amp from me, I thought it was a good opportunity to upgrade to the newer Fender 150 Rumble. The Fender 150 performs great and is a definite increase in power that you can hear. You can jam virtually anywhere with this (as you could with the Rumble 100 watt). Dont be fooled, 150 watts through a 15 speaker is plenty. (The Rumble 350 has more power because more power is needed to push a 2-10 configuration). I only have a couple issues with this amp, and its not about the sound or power. First, the Fender logo plate is large, and Fender placed this thing directly in front of the speaker (not off to the sides, top or bottom). I did the math, and it is blocking about 9.5% of the surface area of the speaker. Thats almost 10% of blocked air movement, just because Fender wanted everyone in the world to know youre using their amp! Anyway, I removed that plate. It was kind of a task because they had it screwed and glued on. Couldnt get the glue off, so I had to use black touch-up paint. A real headache. Anyway, its full-force now. Second thing, they have handles on the side (which is great), but I really need to have an amp handle on the TOP of the cabinet so you dont have to bend your back when youre lifting. Even though its a relatively light for a bass combo (55 lbs), a handle on top is the best way (and safest way) to lift this. I had to put one on. Happy I did. (Cost was $2. I used a metal utility handle from hardware store). Third thing, Fender removed the Level Control for the line-out. Its not a show stopper, but the manual Level Control on the original Rumble 100 was a real nice feature in the event I had to run a line to the PA on real big gigs, or recording sessions. Having control over the line out signal was a real nice feature. Finally, the 4 band passive EQ on the Rumble 150 is much better than the active (parametric) EQ on the 350 Rumble. (My opinion). With the 4 band EQ on the Rumble 150, you get ALL the tone control you need, and its done very simply and logically. When you start getting into parametric EQ circuits, youre then talking about the next level of complication in achieving a good, simple tone. With parametric tone circuits, you can play around for hours, and still not find the tone you want. I never buy amps that have complicated EQ circuits (again, just my opinion). This amp also has a fan that helps cool the amp. (The old ones didnt). My old Rumble never turned off because of heat overload, but maybe Fender is using some sort on new power amp design that needed a fan. All in all, I would highly recommend this amp. Its good sounding, dependable, plenty loud, and is relatively light (for a bass combo). Buy one!

I wouldn't recommend this amp. Used it in only about 6 gigs before it basically blew up. I suppose it's a case of only getting what you pay for. The sound is great and it has plenty of bottom end coming from its 15' speakers but maybe stick clear of 150w if your playing in regular gigging band. Even better spend a little more money on something better...

Comments about Fender Rumble 150 150W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

Had this amp for 6 months now. Sounds fantastic with a Fender Jazz Bass, and it makes my cheap Ibanez pack an impressive punch. Pretty nice tonal control, the punch and scoop buttons are very handy. It fills a medium large auditorium with ease, and the headphone output and line-in are great for practice.

My one complaint is that the XLR output has some serious buzz, which makes it pretty much unusable for professional recording (though acceptable for demos and the like). I've yet to try simply miking the amp - hopefully that will work better.

Otherwise, good sound for a great price.

Comments about Fender Rumble 150 150W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

This is a 2 part review...first the amp is very good. I needed it for home as my reg rig is at rehearsal. I wanted something that would be a good backup in addition to a useful home amp. This fits the bill. Nice build, solid sound, good tonal options, easy to move around on the casters. The second story is MF...the first amp arrived with the box busted, parts missing and all the inside Styrofoam broken. UPS had snuck up on my doorstep left the box and high-tailed it outa here. I was home; they didn't knock or ring the bell. I called MF and they just said no problem, we are going to take care of it and they did. Look, you can get all these items anywhere..on the net or locally. But MF has customer service nailed. I keep coming back because they really excel at this. I have been a customer for close to 10 yrs...they do a good job!

      Comments about Fender Rumble 150 150W 1x15 Bass Combo Amp:

      Knowing a little about audio and loudspeakers, I wanted a 15" speaker in the amp for my bass. Big driver (speaker), lots of headroom and power behind it, the other stuff would be fluff. I also know at home level volumes bass reflex is the way to go for deep mellow bass but it has to have power behind it because if its in an open box the driver has to be heavy duty. This amp met the requirements dead on. I can crank the amp and play the bass light and still get the deep lows at low to moderate volumes. I can easily keep from getting drowned out by a lead guitar also which is nice. The power easily overwhelms an average size home room with a ton of resonance. I would like to get it an a hall or outside and stretch its legs and I'll bet it will keep up with ease. The horn adds a nice touch, it really brings out the strings nice although I didn't really buy it for that.

      The box is well designed, and controls laid out by someone who seems to know whats needed and what is not. Money well spent, played it well into the night the first week and I'm sure many more to come. I was worried I was was paying a lot for the name but it lived up to it.

        The amp was purchased for a middle school jazz ensemble. It sounds great, is easy to use and is very portable. The amp has more power than we will ever need to use!

                  I use this amp with a Motion Sound Pro-3
                  x with a Hammond XK1 combo organ. The Motion Sound amp requires a keyboard or other amp to handle all frequencies below 800hz. That's why I bought the Rumble. At first I tried using the return input to bypass the preamp, as I did on a previous amp, but with the -6db input at the main input, I could control the tone AND volume to my satisfaction... I've used several amps for the below-800hz organ function, but the Rumble has been the most versatile. Thank goodness it came with casters...

It has the clear crisp Fender Tone I love and got comments on how good my bass was sounding. I play Funk and rock and this amp delivers the deep lows and crisp highs I needed. GET THIS AMP!

I play my 5 string Jazz bass through this amp. I never had a problem at any venue. The only downfall is that it is heavy, but thats a good thing because it is so well built. I love this amp. I've been playing bass for 35 yrs.
