OVERVIEW

75 watts of booty-shaking power in a sweet Fender combo.

The 75W Fender Rumble 75 Bass Combo Amp will envelope you in undulating waves of idyllic bass bliss before you even turn it up very loud, so you better brace yourself. The Rumble amp's powerful tone is the result of pushing 75 watts through a 12" Fender Special Design Speaker, and you can blend adjusted-to-taste overdrive with pure, clean bass tone for first-rate Fender bass sound. The optional footswitch turns the overdrive on/off on the fly. The Rumble 75 also boasts a pair of EQ presets for chest-pounding punch and pulsing mid-scoop, plus a convenient tilt-back design for improved monitoring.

The full-featured Rumble 75 bass combo features a professionally voiced pre-amp, vented cabinet for enhanced bass response, tilt back design to hear yourself better. 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.

I am ecstatically amazed at the sonic quality of Fender's Rumble 75 bass amp. I have been playing bass for nearly 43 years, and I needed a small personal practice amp since I no longer play out and sold my stage rig.

The Rumble 75 is very well designed, and of excellent sonic quality. The tone controls are very well voiced, and I quickly & easily dialed in a great sound. This amp sounds much larger than it actually is thanks to its 75 clean continous watts of pre-distortion power. The unsung hero here is Fender's unique "Delta-Comp" adaptive internal compressor. You don't see it, but you sure can hear it! A great plus in my book.

The overdrive is quite good, and is better than many 'stompboxes'. I could add just enough 'UMPH' to give my sound a nice warm tube amp vibe. Or just go over the top with full on "Iron Man" fuzz tone. And anywhere in between.

The two shape buttons really work well and are not just marketing gimmicks.

The 12" speaker is well designed & built. It sounds great! The tilt back monitor styled cabinet is also well designed with excellent build quality. Tight & Punchy this combo kicks out solid low end you can feel. There is also tons of top end. While this amp does get very loud, it also sounds good at low volumes too, and that's a big plus for me.

The Rumble 75 is an insanely good value! For the price of a couple of stompboxes - Overdrive and also a Compressor - You also get an extremely good sounding & SEXY 75 watt bass amp! If bass amps can be sexy, this one is most assuredly so. :) Highly Recommended.

If you are going to be playing in a band, do yourself a big favor and step up to the Rumble 150 or 350.

Well, I read about a few people having distortion/static issues with this amp. I thought that it would be a long shot to get a defective amp, but it happened. As some have said across the internet: the amp rocks for a few days, then one day you plug it on and the tone is distorted.When it did work, it sounded VERY nice, with great tone. Plenty loud to jam with a drummer. Simple and straight forward. But the static issues overshadow the good points of the amp. Some say the issues are from the bass you use. Well I have a Fender P-bass and an Ibanez SR500. Both present the issue. In fact, the static is there when the bass is unplugged from the amp.Sadly, I can't recommend this amp. If you get a good one... more power to you. I loved it for the 3 days I got out of it... wish it could have been more.

WOW

Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

I am a fender fanatic, so this seemed like the logical choice when i was shopping around. i love the tones that i can get from my jazz with this amp. if it were stolen i would buy another immediately. if you are looking for an amp that has enough power to enable you to play with a band, while also being lightweight, this is the amp for you.
With the EQ settings, and the punch and scoop features AND the overdrive, just wow. this amp has everything a bassist could possible want. i really like the tilt back feature, but i sort of wish it wasnt so i could put casters on it, but it isnt even heavy, so they arent neccessary. i like how you can have a footswitch, and it has a line out, and the red and white Aux in, and even have headphones for undisruptive playing.
this amp seems really well built, well it IS a fender so of course it is. i just got it today, so i cant speak for the future, but i am well assured that it will be working for quite a while, and in any case, it has a fender 5 year warranty. you can buy this with confidence
Do i even have to talk about value? It has enough power to easily play with a full band, and yet you can have it turned down low and still get the same tone. with a lot of amps, if you turn the volume down, the tone goes with it. not the case here. buy this amp.

I bought this for my son to play in his band. It sounded great for a few months then quit working. Since I neglected to fill out the registration card, it is not covered and now I have a $250.00 paper weight.

Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

When i have my new born baby,my wife NOT ALLOW me play bass guitar with Marshall 450H + MBC410 at home. So after i SOLD Mashall,i focus to Fender Rumble Small Combo.With my previos experience own a Rumble 100/210,it was a well balance & nice quality TINY VIBE combo. I start focus on New Rumble 75watt combo and bring it home last week.
This nice looking combo sing a tasty tone with my upgraded SR705 (with US Bart P2 pickup & 3 band NTMB) at VOLUME POT below 5.
When the volume pot OVER 5 till 8, i get a TERRIBLE DISTOR BUZZING SOUND!!!!
Was this STUFF only have perfect perfomence at volume before 5 !?!?!?
Finally I spend few hour to FIND OUT the problem.
First problem is that Buzzing sound come from the Driver wire,that C-clip has FREE-PLAY. Fix it by Shurtape wraping.
Second problem came form the AIR-FLOW hole at the bottom of combo.That middle wood GLUE-TIGHTLESS!!!!
I tight it with 4 pcs 3 inch srew. First scew from bottom ply wood to that middle wood piece.The others screw around the side of middle wood, all the screw BITE the bottom ply wood & the upper ply wood.I hope reader can understand what i means.
Now i can play the bass guitar at volume 8~9 without any combo buzzing & distor anymore.
BUT one thing i wanna mention is Rumble 75 NOT suitable with B-string above volume 5,it sound weird,highly recommend for 4 string bass guitar.
Now i am happy with it.

Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

Purchasing this amp was kind of a settlement decision on my part. I got tired of waiting for a certain lightweight GK model to be released. Turns out I am quite satisfied with my little compromise. This amp is very impressive. Very solidly built in Korea, not China. Features are nice too. Although I will never use it, the overdrive option is not bad sounding at all. The tilt-back feature is a good improvement. The previous models of this amp didn't have this. I also like that they did away with that ridiculous, pointless glowing red light-show on the previous rumble 12" model and replaced it with 15 more watts of power. I'm digging the great, clean tone I am hearing out of this 12" speaker. Thanks Fender, for my newest small venue gigging amp.

    Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

    Been playing bass for a few months and the 15w 'practice' amp just wasn't cutting it - nothing made it sound good. My son has a 15w peavey vypyr that just blew away my bass amp.
    Tried several in the stores and this one sounded the best. The 150 sounded good too but at nearly twice the price/power was overkill for my needs.

    This amp sounds fantastic with my gsr200 2/flats and my RBX375 even at the low end of the B string. My son played his washburn guitar through it and even that sounded good (and we played BOTH guitar and bass through it nicely).

    It can nearly overpower his amp yet sound good at low volumes. The gain/blend is great as is the EQ - unlike my 158 I can hear a large difference from each adjustment and get a very wide range of tones.

    And it's not that heavy!

      Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

      I have had this amp for several months. I play in a horn jazz band and play a Fender Jazz bass through it. I really like the sound and features of the amp. It has everything I need without a lot of buzzers and bells. It feels solid too; not cheap at all.

      I think the sound is very good - deep and solid with good tone. The tone controls and EQ presets are very effective and add nice variety. I have no use for the overdrive controls and have never even tried them.

      It is plenty loud for me to play with the jazz band on volume "5", and it is pretty easy to carry. When we did do a larger show, I used the line out and went through the board - no worries.

      All in all a very good amp for practice or medium volume ensembles. I am very pleased and it is a good value.

        Great Small Amp

        By Dan-p_XSo

        from Houston, Texas

        Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

        I play some quiet restaurant gigs on upright bass, and was looking for something small that could still put out enough low end to keep my bass sounding fat. Even my 2x10 rig is too much for these gigs. This amp puts out a surprising punch for the size and money. I like the EQ section, and was able to very quickly get to a sounds that pleased me. I never use the overdrive, so I don't have any comment about that. One thing I will say is that at 55 lbs, this is not a particularly lightweight amp, and the shape is a little bulky, although it does fit just fine in the trunk of my trusty Corolla. Overall, I think this is a great amp, especially at this price-point...

        I got this amp at my local Guitar Center the day I got my Thunderbird. This thing sounds amazing. The distortion channel sounds great and the punch and scoop is excellent. For the price, you can't beat this amp. Like all Fender amps, this thing is kinda heavy, but it's super durable. Kick-proof grill protects the speaker and the amp can literally rattle my windows. I love it.

        Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

        I've had the Rumble 75 for a little over a year. I've gigged with it in small clubs, but really got it for practice. I keeps up with Fender Twin Reverbs, Marshall Half Stacks (JCM 800 I think could be 900), and several different drum sets.

        I wanted it because at the time I needed a combo amp for easier load in at practice and I liked the tilt back for that. I ended up also using it in small gigs to without help from the PA. We did mic the kick at these clubs, so there was significant competition. I think the size of the cab helps push more air at the low wattage and size of speaker.

        2 issues I've had. Had to reseat the speaker to remove a harmonic buzz at low C and D and 2 of the rubber feet came off that helped mount the Steel corners. I think the steel corners snagged on carpet and pulled out the feet which were screwed in with a black screw. One of the screws is lost so now I'm short a foot. That doesn't effect me much because all the kick back feet are still there.

        It's a little heavy, but not too bad for the power it puts out. Great for practice when I don't want to make multiple trips for a head, speaker, bass, and cables.

        Comments about Fender Rumble 75 75W 1x12 Bass Combo Amp:

        For the money, the amp cannot be beat. OUTSTANDING versatility in dialing out many useable, quality tones. Don't let the 75 watts fool you. This thing gets loud. Tone is very even across all volume points. Nice. Very good, built in overdrive if you'd want it. The key to getting real volume out of this amp is backing off the lows, turning up the volume, and then turning the lows up until clipping. Plenty of low end at maximum volume. 5 stars to Fender on this one.

          The speaker is cheap and weak. Without the boost button, the 75watt head has no more power than a 10watt practice amp. It's as heavy as a 300 watt combo amp that you could play out with. The cabinet is built as well as a Mesa Boogie diesel cabinet and weighs as much. It's a pretty, well built amp,with no power, cheap speaker with a dime size magnet. Maybe a bedroom amp, but it's so darn big and heavy and weak powered that it couldn't have any other use. I would not buy this amp.

            Even reproduces 5th string. I guess Fender knows a bit about bass amps.

                    This is simply a great sounding amp with sufficient power to handle a small to medium venue. The Fender name gives me confidence in its durability. Although primarily used for bass amplification, it provides a wonderful, meaty sound for guitars. This is a great amp. I got it used from musician's friend and could not find a single flaw. The price was less than a 30W Fender Rumble. I am one happy camper.
