So I decided to get this amp today after hearing nothing but good things about it. I'm new to bass and I looked for an amp versatile enough that I can use for late night practice and not disturb the neighbors and powerful enough that could be used for small gigs once I learn to play. I chose fender for its reputation of durability and sound. What I love most about this amp is how light it is, it's surreal the power it puts out compared to its small footprint. My "no name" inexpensive passive 5 string bass guitar sounds really good through the Rumble 100 that I'm starting to appreciate it more. This amp puts out 100 watts at 22 lbs and the guitar amp I was using to practice bass (I know it's not recommended lol) puts out 15 watts and it weighs 18 lbs. Guitar Center did a price match and the salesperson was very helpful. I would recommend this amp to anyone looking for a great overall value.

I was very excited to purchase the Rumble 100 as a practice amp and for potentially small gigs. I like the fact it was 100 watts, light weight, had an xlr direct out, and had a headphone jack. Overall it sounded good, had great tone, and had a lot of power. I'm a "Fender Guy" so I was disappointed that the volume of my Fender J-Bass deluxe kept disappearing on me while practicing on it. I took it back within the 45 day return period and ordered another one.

The new one did the same thing so I returned it within the 45 day return period and ordered another one. I thought this was very strange an at this point I thought the problem could possibly be my bass so I had it checked out by a qualified Fender tech who told me I had a dirty volume POTS which may or may not have contributed to the "amp problem" (Guitar Center initially checked it out and couldn't replicate the issue or find any problems with my bass).

I received my 3rd rumble 100 and just after the 45 day return period it stopped working altogether. No sound would come out from the auxiliary input or my bass. I took it to GC to show them it didn't work (it wouldn't work on their instruments or cables either) and I plugged my bass and cables into a new rumble 100 which worked fine.

Bottom line, I had 3 Fender Rumble 100's and all three of them were defective. Even with a dirty volume control on my bass I have a hard time believing this was the issue with the first two amps, especially since the 3rd one stopped working completely. It may have been just my bad luck but I wasn't impressed by the quality or durability. I'm not a fan of the new Fender Rumble series. They don't see as durable as the previous series.

    Wanted a lighter amp than my GK for smaller inside gigs, this also has a DI connection. Very impressed.

    Comments about Fender RUMBLE 100 1x12 100W Bass Combo Amp:

    I've been using this amp for about a week now, so I think I've got a few weeks to go before I really know whether this was a good value or not, but so far it sounds really good. I used the di for recording with the group I'm in straight through a toneport ux2, and it sounded really good and balanced in the mix; was able to cut through that crunchy orange powered guitar so that you could still hear the bass, but also rounded out the low end as well. Overall, sound quality is really nice.

    As far as weight goes, I can't believe how light this thing is. I'm used to lugging around at least 50lbs amps, but this comes in at an unbelievable 22lbs! Obviously this is a huge plus for older gents or little guys, or really just anybody who hates having to lug tons of equipment up and down stairs and into and out of vans and the like. Not only that, but It can actually somewhat hold it's own in a live setting. Of course, if you have 2 or more guitarists or other musicians, you may want to look into the 200 model, but for me, this is just enough.

    That brings me to live gigging. I havn't had a chance to try this at a gig yet, but on it's own it holds up fine to our little vocal pa, my guitarists 30w tube amp, and the drummer. I should mention though, that pushing the volume to about 9-10, you start to hear the speaker break up a bit, but I don't really think that will be a problem for me. Most of the places we play have a sound guy, so I'll be able to give him my di signal, and just use my bass amp as a monitor, which mean's this will probably be good enough for me for gigging as well.

    Verdict? This is a great sounding, versatile, easy amp to use, and I don't regret spending the money one bit. Hopefully it holds up to some abuse and remains enough bass amp for what I'll be doing. If it isn't, I'll just upgrade later :P

        I've been taking lessons for close to 2 years and needed something besides my 10 watt practice amp. So when GC had a 20% off coupon I jumped on this baby. I can see why it gets such great reviews. Great sound and surprising light.

        Iv'e been a guitar player for 60 years and just started playing bass. I am a tube amp guy so I was somewhat wary of going solid state but wow, this thing rocks. When I picked this thing up I couldn't believe how light it was and I thought it must be a toy, trust me, it's the real thing. The controls are well laid out and the EQ is very responsive.The only this I wish it had is a mic input.

        Comments about Fender RUMBLE 100 1x12 100W Bass Combo Amp:

        I like this amp overall. I skeptically traded in my fairly new Rumble 75 for this amp. I wasn't horribly impressed with the '75 but thought I'd give Fender one last chance. What a MAJOR upgrade! More power, less weight, smaller, better features and better tone. I do wish the amp had some integrated way to tilt. I also wish the controls were on the top-forward instead of on the top-rear. If I add tilt legs, the controls will be next to impossible to see/reach. Sounds great with my Zoom pedal and Steinberger 5-string. A nice package for the money.

        Comments about Fender RUMBLE 100 1x12 100W Bass Combo Amp:

        I'm rather new to these kinds of products so please take that into consideration. Having said that, I feel this amp will spoil me. It will spoil me because I already know when I look at other products in the same price range, I will be disappointed because every other product will NOT be a Fender Rumble series. I only had an Ampeg 110 before this and it was so limited that I really had no idea just how lacking my sound and tone was. I admit I find limited use for the overdrive, foot switch capabilities (at least for now), and other one button tone adjustments, but it is nice to know I can use them if I want. More than adequate power practice and small venues with a super light weight and awesome classic look. You won't be disappointed.

        GREAT AMP

        By Nyckolas

        from oakville connecticut

        Comments about Fender RUMBLE 100 1x12 100W Bass Combo Amp:

        I've owned them all. Hartke,Fender,Ibanez,Ampeg,Orange,Genz Benz you name it.I've had some good amps But NONE of them have compared to this amp in particular.Recently I fried the mother bored on my Hartke A70. I had around a $300 price range so I went to the local GC and bought an ampeg.After about a week of playing it I just couldn't take the distorted sound when it was turned up.So imused my 30 day "happy" clause and returned it.I was about to buy a 300 watt peavey when I plugged into this amp.The sound quality,the tone,and how loud this amp is is just unbelievable for a 100 watt amp.Its clear sound when turned all the way up with great low end is what sold me. Then the overdrive and all your tone control options this is the best amp I've ever owned.Has a 12 inch speaker that sounds like a 15 inch.I love this amp as it also is only maybe 10 lbs.BUY THIS AMP

        Comments about Fender RUMBLE 100 1x12 100W Bass Combo Amp:

        On the way to a gig I found out that the PA system that I was going to be playing through was crapy (I prefer to have control of my sound)so I stopped by guitar center and found this Bad Boy! I did zero research and put my trust in Fender. Wow! What an amazing unit! Sounds great! Easy to operate and very very light! May not be the loudest but sound quality makes up for it!
