La toute nouvelle série Rumble constitue un fantastique bond en avant dans l'évolution des amplis basse portables.
Entièrement repensés, les nouveaux amplis Rumble sont plus légers et plus puissants que jamais : avec davantage de mordant, ils n'en conservent pas moins l'esprit Fender classique. Un tout nouveau circuit d'overdrive commutable au pied et une gamme de voicings polyvalents contrôlés par trois boutons délivrent des sons puissants qui vous permettront de trouver le son juste en toute situation.

Wow! I wanted a lighter amp than my 2 x 12 behemoth, and I'd been researching amps for a while. I'm a cheapskate and was looking for something used. But not finding anything modern on Craigslist. I mean I wanted aux input for my mp3 player, and a headphone out. I also wanted something that I could use to gig that has a line or XLR output. This little Rumble sure looked good on the website, but I wondered how it sounded and if it was going to be "big" enough. I knew I wasn't looking for an amp to rock the room, but rather something to beef up the sound for me while playing, and had tone to send to the house PA. I headed down to ye 'ol Guitar Center and tried it out. Wow! So light! So light! And it sounded like it would have enough volume for what I was looking for. It was way louder than a 1 x 12 50W Ampeg I tried out! The Rumble also has a very flexible overdrive switch, and three other presets (Bright, Contour, and Vintage) The Vintage colour is warm with some compressed punch. Needless to say I bought it on a Friday afternoon for a Saturday evening gig. It performed great! I had the gain set about 1/3 and the Master about 3/4 of full. Boom, boom, boom it rocked in the room. Was exactly what I was wanting. Did I mention it is light, oh so light. It is the best all around bass amp I've tried. Really, even for a larger venue I don't think I'd need anything else. Let the PA do the work, stop schlepping a heavy beast.

I tried this amp out in a local music store. Because the amp was only 40 watt and so light weight, honestly, I wasn't expecting much. I was so surprised from the minute I turned this amp on. Great tone, loud for it's size, vintage fender looks, super light weight, great for home use and small gigs. This amp doesn't have all of the bells and whistles some more expensive amps might have, but all I was looking for was tone.
I have used this amp a couple of times on stage during performance, no line out to pa, just the amp. Everyone in the band was very surprised with the tone and volume I can get out of this little rig. Gain set to 25% and master set to 75% and this little guys rocks out hard for it's size.
I have been playing bass for 17 years, this is by far the best 200 bucks I have every spent. If you are looking for a practice amp with great tone and something for small gigs to not think twice about the Rumble 40.
Now that I have gotten use to this amp, if it went missing I would have to replace it right away.

I picked up a Rumble 40 amp yesterday and did a small bar gig with it tonight. Never more than 40 people in a 40x40 room with a 15' ceiling.
In short... This thing is great! Much more natural sounding than anything I've used so far.
My bass is a 1950 Kay C1 with Spirocore S42 Mittels and a Fishman Full Circle. The amp's input impedance spec is not posted online anywhere I can find, but I did call Fender before I test drove the amp and they confirmed that it is 1 megOhm. Perfect for the Full Circle. I just plugged straight in.
The group was a 5 piece... Acoustic Guitar (DI to PA), Mandolin (mic to PA) Pedal Steel (amp only), Bass (amp only) and one guy who alternated between snare/hi hat (nothing) and fiddle (mic to PA).
At first, I had it pointed towards me, maybe 5 feet back, but after a few tunes the drummer aimed it at himself. He said it sounded great. The pedal steel player also plays jazz upright and he said he was definitely getting one.
I had the master volume set about 90%, the gain knob around 10%, and cut a little low and low mid, boosted a little high and high mid. Bright switch on. Never did I have the first hint of feedback or hear the first rattle or flub to indicate it was being pushed too hard. And it was plenty loud for that situation.
So, for low volume gigs, I couldn't be more pleased. Especially since it weighs 18 pounds. And that I got it for 207.00 including tax AND the extended "you-blow-a-speaker-and-we-fix-it" warranty from Guitar Center. I test drove this and the 100 in the store, even enlisting the guy behind the drum counter for a quick jam. Honestly, the upright sounded a bit better through the 40 than the 100, and since I could get the 40 loud enough to feed back, I figure the extra watts weren't necessary.
My only complaints are 1) I wish the DI were pre master volume and 2) I wish there were a blend control for the overdrive channel.
Test one for yourself! Don't be scared of the wattage rating. Seriously.
