        this amp is the most versatile, best sounding, and incredibly loud amp I have plugged into in 30 years! and it only weighs 36 pounds? I am in low end heaven! this amp is comparable to ones costing 3 times as much. if you are in the market for a new amp, please do yourself a favor, and check this amp out. it will blow you away!

            Funny incident-accidentally got 230 volt model-shipped it b.ack and got new one promptly.It was well worth the wait.I could get just about any sound I want out of all my basses.The vintage, contour and bright controls work beautifully,the overdrive is awesome and the equalizer is well-balanced.I haven't had to crank the volume past three.All in all a great buy.

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

              Just received.....very impressive for the weight. Haven't gigged it yet, but it should do the job, if it doesn't break down. Lots of tone possibilities....plenty of power. I added my 18" SVT bottom to the mix.....oh my !! Even the 2X10 alone will fill any venue I ever play......and with the XLR out.....you have all the options. Did I mention how light this rig is? At 62, i'm really liking the size and weight of this. So, if it stands up to weekly gigging......Fender (Indonesia) has a real winner here. A good bang for the buck.

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

              Debated at length about purchasing this unit. Heard a lot of "stories" of bad experiences with this combo. Heard it had been redesigned....started seeing lots of very positive reviews. Tried it out, side-by-side versus some of its competitors, and it performed very well. Decided to take the plunge. Glad I did! Exceptional combo....so far. Great amp for all the pros listed above. The "cons" are just my nit-picking! I play a variety of music genres, mainly in large club environments. The direct out seems to meet the approval of sound techs I work with, and they are complimentary of the sound and tone of this combo. My bandmates are complimentary as well. Is more than sufficient to cut through the mix of a five-piece band. It easily handles the full range of my five-string basses....all active....and is loud as it needs to be without any flab or rattling the box. Don't know how long this will perform at this level, but for now, I am very pleased. Somebody at Fender has done their due diligence on this combo!

                  I play at nursing homes in the cafeteria areas. And a VFW hall. Plenty of power, any sound I need with different settings. I went from an old kustom amp with two 15's. Never thought I get this sound with such a small amp with two 10's. Amazing.

                    this thing has so much power and great sound it is silly. And it is so easy to tote around. A really all around great bass combo. Don't let the two 10" setup worry you, tons of low end, I had originally planned to get the 15" extension cab for it but after actually using it I really don't see why I would need to.
