The new Rumble Series by Fender has been completely redesigned and we can safely say these are the best sounding Fender bass amps ever. They sound better, weight less, are nicer and have more features. Great!
This is the 40 Watt combo and it sports a ceramic Fender Special Design 10" speaker
The preamp section has two channels and a very musical 4 band EQ section.
The Clean Channel is remarkably flat sounding. Set all the controls flat, plug in your bass and you'll hear just that, your bass with no added sonic artifacts. Then there are three switches to take you somewhere else: Bright for extended high end response, Contour for a scooped type of sound and Vintage for an immediately classic sound with present mids and softer highs.
Next comes the Overdrive Channel. We dare to say this is among the best Overdrive circuits we've ever heard built on an amp of any price. You can go from a mild overdrive tone to a full blown distortion but the good news is that the sound is always musical and you bass won't suffer from lack of bass. Get ready to have fun!
The back pannel is feature loaded: FX Send and Return, Aux In, Phones out, Footswitch in (Clean/Overdrive), Balanced DI out with Ground Lift. There's also a Tweeter On-Off switch and an 8 Ohm external speaker out in case you need more power and pressure.
All this in a remarkably portable package (it weighs in at just 8kg). We love it!
