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:

I can't say enough about this amp. It did everything I wanted and then some. I used the suggested finger rock settings (horn off, punch in; recommended EQ settings). The sound is amazing and the thump was noticed by everyone in the band. I don't know if it's because I was able to shut off the tweeter or if the speaker is that much superior or a combination of both but I was putting out some severely awesome lows with no rattle or crackling - even when I was pounding an open E. These were the cleanest lows I've ever done The power cord is 9' long - when you're trying to hook up your amp, wireless receiver, pedal board, gig light, and one side of the stage lights (I play on the far right side as you are facing the stage), having an amp cord that long can make a difference.

I really don't have too much I don't like at the moment. If I were to redesign the amp myself, all the connections (input, FX loop, footswitch, line out) would be in the back. I use all five - 3 Monster bass cables (2 for the effects loop and 1 to the wireless), 1/4" footswitch, and the low-Z PA connection - and it would be nice if there were more out of the way instead of all looping off the front. I'd also make the casters a little beefier. Not that they don't work well but I wonder how well they'll weather a lot of use.

Overall, if you're looking for an affordable amp that has the power to really rattle the stage, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find another that has these features and this performance for the price. If you're in the market or just checking out amps in a music store, it behooves you to check this one out.

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

    After playing through the Ampeg SVT w/810
    cabinet for nearly 30 years, it became time to downsize for a number of reasons. # 1. Too old to drag that behemoth around anymore. I took the Rumble 150 from the truck to the venue stage without even trying it out. It took me less than 5 minutes to get that classic Fender sound. I was a little skeptical to whether it would be enough to do the gig- it was. Much to my surprise my bass filled the medium sized venue with headroom to spare. Granted we don't play AC/DC on 11 but the amp was on set at 3 and gave that visceral sound of gut pounding low end (courtesy of my 5 string Jazz). The only drawback for me was when I turned around to make an adjustment I had to bend down. I now have it set on top of its road case, hence no more bending over (age and lack of work ethics issue). If you need a portable bass rig for small to medium sized rooms, I highly recommend the Fender Rumble 150. So I say good bye to the monster SVT rig and say hello to my little friend...the Rumble 150!

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

    Great amp. Can't say it enough.
    I haven't been able to test out some things (such as the effects loop, aux. in, and line out) but the EQ for this amp is great, so you can get just about any tone that you want if you mess around with it enough.
    What more would you expect from Fender? All the products I've bought from them have been perfectly made.
    I played other amps from other competitors in this same price range and they all sounded very dry and didn't have the punch I wanted.

      The Rumble 150 is a very versatile and powerful gem! This is the third bass amp I've had over the years including the Behringer BXL90, and the others pale in comparison to the Rumble! You have such a tonal variety with the EQ, Gain, and the various buttons to scope your sounds. My Fender Deluxe P-Bass seems like it was made for this amp, so many different sounds to explore. Warm to Raunhy. One of the better amps I've heard for the price range. It also has a rugged design which gives confidence during transport. Don't be fooled by the basic interface, this baby can handle any musical situation with ease!

      Excellent amp for the price. I used this amp for my daughters wedding outside and it has plenty of sound. That horn really clears up the muddyness. 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.

      Great Amp For All Styles!

      By Zach Michaels

      from Southern WI

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

      I bought the Fender Rumble 150 about a year ago from my local music shop, and I've beat on it like a workhorse everyday since then. I gave it tens across the board because it deserves them! I play in a punk band with an obnoxious drummer and an guitarist with a 1970's Marshall stack and this is able to overpower them with the volume between 50 and 75% without distorting or losing tone. I play through it at that volume for at least an hour every day of the week. Its got an XLR output which is great both for recording and for PA purposes at venues. The overdrive is good for anything between giving you a little bite to your tone and massive fuzz. The four band EQ is very simple, but very good for dialing in a perfect tone and the Scoop/Boost switches are good for playing Slap/Finger styles. All the hardware is good quality and has not failed me yet and I dont think it ever will. When I was looking around for an amp to upgrade to I played many in the price range of the Rumble 150 and a few that were more expensive and this blew them all out of the water. I would definitely reccomnend this amp to any one looking to upgrade or someone looking to replace a stack with a combo amp that can put out just as much tone and volume.

      I just got this amp, but have played thru several similar and pricier ones. The 1972 Bassman with 4x10's I have is loud as heck and this trumps that. I would put this up against about anything out there and can't wait to gig with it. If you know how to dial in your sound all the OD and scoops are great. I don;t agree with the others though regarding the weight. I think its perfect.

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

      I got this monstorus beast today. Strangely it came on a big 16 wheeler truck all by itself, which seems wierd but its here. i got it out of the box, turned it on and struck a low E..... When i awoke from my daze i realized it was turned on full volume and dang it was loud. Once i gathered myself i got to tuning all of the knobs and buttons to my likeing and its not only loud but sounds good too. The punch and scoop work as they are said to, and the overdrive is a cool feature. Im not sure abot the horn, it seems to make a quiet hiss a kinda boost trebel but i think ill do without it, thank god for the on off switch on tehh horn. Over all a sweet loud bass amp thats worth the $$$$$. Im looking forward to playing it at the may fair and am confident that it will hold up against my drummer who seems to hate his drums and beats them accordingly. Now i just cant wait for the free footswitch to come in.

      This is a fantastic amp. It is the workhorse of my band and can pack a punch. I haven't flexed the Rumble 150 past 5 because it shakes things off the shelves in my house. 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!
