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

    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.

          Works great with my upright bass. It is clearly heard through my hard driving rockabilly band. It also reproduces my uprights natural sound. My Rickenbaker also sounds killer through it.

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

            This amp exceeded my expectations - super light weight, fantastic tone, lots of options for altering tone (contour, vintage, etc.), and it lived up to it's "rumble" name - on a 2/10 volume, it was rumbling the house enough to open cupboards! I absolutely recommend it. I was trying to decide between the Rumble 200 and the Rumble 500 - I am very happy I spent the extra money and went with the 500!

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

            I use this bass amp ALL the time, at rehearsal, on stage in 2 bands, and at home. With 500W it is plenty powerful to handle most all venues. It sounds GREAT, is really portable (since my back does NOT want to handle my Accugroove El Whappo and Tri112 for most gigs.) The Rumble 500 has REALLY great sound, and has a very functional overdrive. and it has mountains of head room that will tear down some small structures. (at the least it is certainly loud enough to break things...) Also it LOOKS great with that Vintage Fender styling that is Perfect for both my Surf Rock and Blues band applications.
            My only gripe is that the first 1/4 turn of the Volume control is a bit touchy. some of the hardware is obviously inexpensive (read that "Cheap") and I have already broken the "Fender" logo on the front twice. (super glue and a sliver sharpie "fixed it" but other than that, I love the Amp.
            On stage, it has a built in DI, so I don't need an external DI, and I use it often with in-house Sound systems. Just an XLR connection and the sound person is happy and ready to go.
            All in all this is a GREAT amp, and I plan to use it for a long time.

                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!
