      Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

      I have used a Sunn Concert Bass (2 - 15s) for 25 years - I also have an all tube Mesa Prodigy Four:88 with 2 - 4x10 cabinets - perhaps the pinnacle of bass sound. These cabinets require much more back than I now possess to move - excellent though they are. I then bought the now discontinued Fender Rumble 150 (single 15) to haul around, but it also is too physically heavy. Then I took a chance on the new Rumble 500 Combo (2-10s) -- Wow, Wow, Wow! What a beast! Tight, deep and powerful - and you can get a second 2x10 - or even a 4x10 cabinet and blow the house down! And the added beauty is that I can carry this thing around - only 36 lbs. When you are 66 years - this makes big a difference - I absolutely love it!

      Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

      This Combo is super light and Powerful. I can easily dial in any sound I need and it's very simple to use. I am using a Fender Jazz American Deluxe bass with this amp most of the time and it thumps hard. I also use an Eden Wt 800 with a 4X10 and even though it's hard to believe, I like this set-up just as much. I purchased the 1X15 to pair this up and it sounds great! Great clear lows with tons of power and volume. Entry level price with professional quality. If you are thinking about buying this combo, you won't be disappointed. Musicians friend return policy is unbeatable along with their price.

        Perfect for our small group of aging musicians. We use two Rumble 500's for both bass and guitar driven from our mixer. Great sound, plenty of volume, AND much easier to move than our previous amps.

          Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

          Yes, I consider myself a novice still even all these years down the road. I play mostly parties, and at church. I am no paid professional, and I just don't consider myself good enough to call myself experienced either...

          Having said that, there isn't enough good that I can say about this amp. The tone shaping controls on this thing are beyond amazing. Your basic Bass, Mid low, Mid High, and High knobs do exactly what you expect them to do, the Vintage, Bright, Overdrive etc... all deliver awesome tones all on their own.

          I always played through Crate and Ampeg 15" combos and always struggled to find "my sound". It took me less than 5 minutes fiddling around with this to find it. And it has given me the ability to kick my playing up to the next level sound wise, it actually sounds like I know what I am doing.

          The expansion port and optional footswitch bring great flexibility to this combo...

          The overall build quality is astonishingly good, and the weight, well I admit I have car wreck caused back problems and the light weight of this thing makes loading in / out less of a punishment than it used to be.

          Talk to anyone that owns one of these, and I am sure you'll hear them gush about this amp. It is beyond awesome!

          No contest...had this for several months now...it is just great....that's the fact jack! Easy to move...dial in just the sound you want...powerful...Fender has redeemed itself for the V2 rumble...(which was not so good). BTW great look...if that matters!

            Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

            this is by far the best bass amp fender came out with very light at 36 pounds. I'm 49 and I just couldn't keep carrying that fender stack anymore this little baby saves my back and sounds just as good you wont be sorry if you buy this. I also bought the onstage amp stand it sets this amp up perfect.

            Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

            I used the amp for one gig so far. Gig was with two guitar players and no drums and it worked fine. I'm sure it would have plenty of power to play with a drummer, probably not quite enough for dual guitarists with marshall stacks but those are not my type of gigs anymore. I love the lightness and portability of this amp as well as its power. Perfect for coffee shops and small neighborhood bars. I'm sure it'd do fine in a larger club with some PA reinforcement. I haven't tried it with an extension cab. I have a GK 1001RB with an avatar 4x10 cab so buying an extension cab for this combo isn't likely for me. Only issue I can think of is tone shaping. I didn't find my sweet spot right away with this amp. I play old school rock and country on a short scale SX jazz bass. I like the vintage button despite it being a bit bottom heavy to my ears at least. Hard to beat this amp for its price. We'll see how it holds up long term. One final note, amp fits in the hatch (under the cover) of my prius just fine.

              I love the vintage sound!

              This amp is truly awesome. Tone is deep and luxurious, yet responsive and strong. It's such a departure from the older fender amps!! Not even in the same category. One of the first purchases in a long time, where I feel like i got an AMAZING deal!! Super powerful lows, and makes my passive basses sound like heaven!! Good for any style....very adaptable. I was going to add the 1x15 cab, but I honestly feel like I don't need it unless I play something huge! Just my opinion, of course....but man, this is excellent in my book! Oh yeah, and it weighs 36 lbs!!! Are you kidding me?! It's ridiculously easy to tote around!
