Comments about Fender Rumble 40 40-watt 1x10" Combo Bass Amp:

WOW! The Fender Rumble 40 is great. I just can't believe the big sound I'm hearing from this little amp. I must admit that I was very skeptical. When I picked it up for the first time, I almost sent it through the ceiling of the music store. It's so light! Some of the amps I've owned before weighted fifty pounds or more. This thing weighs in at 18 lbs. You won't hurt your back with this one. Then I thought, "CHEAP!!!" No bass amp this light can sound good. Well, I was wrong. It sounds amazing! The effects that are built into it really work and will give you plenty of tonal flexibility. It's rated at 40 watts but trust me, it's loud and deep. What's way more important (to me anyway) is that the sound is CLEAN! No hissing or buzzing or anything. Not even a pop. It's a great practice amp. Just plug in a set of headphones and your favorite music device and you're good to go. Something else I like is the built in XLR output. Plug it in to a sound system and your drummer will have to work hard to keep up with you. The only concern I have about this amp has nothing to with the amp itself but the packaging. Some reviewers have commented on this and now I know why. The cardboard is thin and the only thing keeping it from being damaged are the styrofoam corner supports. Don't get me wrong, my amp didn't have a scratch on it when I opened it (thank goodness). I'm just advising you to be mindful. I'm still gonna give it 5 stars because the amp is certainly worth it and more. I'm very happy with my new Fender Rumble 40. It's truly is a sweet amp and you get a lot for you money. Go ahead and get one. You won't be sending it back.

Comments about Fender Rumble 40 40-watt 1x10" Combo Bass Amp:

I have an Ibanez AEB5 acoustic bass. By itself, it is not very loud and the tone is lacking, especially at the high end. Plugged in to this amp, you wouldn't even know you were playing a cheap acoustic bass.

The Vintage setting is awesome. With the EQ flat on the amp and on the bass, just engaging the Vintage option gives you the warmest tone you could ever imagine from an amp this size.

I've used it at a small gig with two acoustic guitars (not plugged in) and a percussionist playing a couple of loud djembes. Volume on the bass was about 30%, gain on the amp was at 12 o'clock and the master volume was about 10 o'clock. It was plenty loud enough for all to hear.

With the XLR output, you could plug in to your PA (provided it could handle the low freq's) and use this amp as your monitor. The only problem is, the XLR output is post-EQ and volume, meaning, whatever levels you set on the amp are going to the PA, so the more you turn it up to hear yourself, the louder you're going in the mix.

All in all though, a very impressive unit. Fender has it going on with the V3 Rumbles.

      This amp delivers a real kick while remaining light and portable. The quality and clarity is amazing for a lightweight amp. Need more muscle in your sound? Look no further, as this fella includes overdrive for that extra push. The ease of moving makes it perfect for home practice and smaller gigs and performances.

      from Edison, NJ

      Comments about Fender Rumble 40 40-watt 1x10" Combo Bass Amp:

      This is a great bass amp. At 40 watts it is great for practicing in your room and even for playing in small cafes. Packs a lot of punch in a small package. A must have for any bassist.

      Fender has made a great Combo here

      By 

      from Phoenix, AZ

      Staff Reviewer

      Comments about Fender Rumble 40 40-watt 1x10" Combo Bass Amp:

      The Fender Rumble 40 40-watt 1x10" Combo Bass Amp is perfect if you're looking to downsize your gear without sacrificing sound. At reasonable volumes if your looking for a clean bass sound, this amp will do the job nicely. The presets are very close to the amps they are designed to emulate. Overall, I'd say that big things do come in small packages. I'm very happy with this amp and the best thing is, it doesn't weigh a ton like most bass amps do. You should give it a try. This is a real hands-on product review from Rick @ Sam Ash Phoenix.

                  The Fender Rumble series is packed with features and supremely light on your back. Compared to many other popular brands, this is by far the lightest of them all. The sound is exactly what you would expect from Fender. Full, warm with plenty of EQ options. The 10"speaker delivers great punch with exceptional clarity. A great on the go amp.
