Great Combo
David R. 5284, 26.09.2019
This combo is a great unit, it is fairly compact and not too heavy and can be carried for quite a distance before the weight kicks in.

Sound wise it is a really powerful amp with a 4 band EQ and great sounding speakers which give a good bass thump, but this combo also produces a very good mid range and clear top end with the tweeter set on high.

The 3 preset buttons are handy, I use the vintage preset all the time as with my Fender Jazz bass it gives me exactly the sound I am looking for with the EQ more or less flat only needing a bit of tweeking from room to room to fine tune.

Great combo that gives me everything I need from a bass combo with plenty of power, great sound and portability.

It does feature an overdrive section but it does has never appealed to me so I have never even turned it on so I cannot comment on how well that works.

Boy, does this pack a punch
Patch, 25.06.2017
I knew I wanted to try a Fender Rumble, but was debating what wattage to get. In the end I said, heck, why not go all the way. And boy, this amp has POWER. I have to play at 5-10% MAX during band practice, otherwise it starts ripping everyone's eardrums apart. Plus or minus? You decide.

Apart from that, the amp is extremely light, which is an enormous plus. You can sit on it, stand on it and it still feels very durable. The 4 band equalizer and overdrive give vast opporunities for you bass playing to tinker with the sound, as well as the sound colouring (vintage, contour, bright) do make a difference.

Just wanna play at home and not tear down your walls with these 500W of pure BASS POWER? Just neatly plug in your headphones and no one will ever know you jammed the whole night through.

So apart from the effort you have to put in taming this beast during band sessions, I have no negatives. Certainly recommended.

Best bass combo in the market right now!
Kyuuga, 04.12.2017
This amp does everything it's designed to do - it's a lightweight, easy to carry combo that can offer a clean signal and also has an overdrive function for heavier styles.

Very easy to use with the classic 4-band EQ (Bass, Low Mids, High Mids and Treble) and also with some cheesy options if you're looking for something else. The Bright button gives you more high end treble that can sparkle your sound. The Vintage button adds more bass and gives you a thumpy, fat sound. And Contour gives you a smiley-face EQ cutting your mids and boosting the bass and treble, ideal for slapping.

The Overdrive is decent but a bit limited. It's good if you want to add a bit of grit to your sound but there's better pedal options obviously.

This amp won't colour your sound too much, it's mostly clean and it really shines if you add some pedals with it. It's perfect for small and medium gigs and if you're looking for something easy to carry around without spending too much money.

Tone-wise it's limited but paired with a few pedals it can get you anywhere. All in all a very good choice and the best combo in the market right now.

Lightweight, solid and responsive
Colan , 06.10.2020
In terms of size and tone this is the best bass amp. I've owned. I was a fan of 15" speakers prior to this but I now prefer 2 x 10 " . With speaker out, line out and switchable horn this amp. does it for me.
