Look, I have 5 great amps from Ampeg & Hartke. I needed something small and portable for some smaller gigs on the Westside. Took a chance and ordered this puppy unseen. WOW, great power and punch. Goes from warm bluesy to hot slap all by how I attack the strings. Looks like we will be using this one to record our new CD. Great amp for a great price.

I have been lugging around an Ampeg SVT 4 Pro and the Ampeg 6 x 10 cabinet for years now.
Hands down the absolute best world class bass tone on the planet. ( unless you want to change tubes at One hundred plus every six months like I would have to ). I play 100 + shows a year. Mostly 250 to 500 seats .
I am now 60 years old, and was looking for a smaller rig that didn't compromise my sound.
I was , and still am , very unlucky in my search.
The new Fender rumble 500 watt was interesting at first. It seemed to come somewhat close to getting that Ampeg sound until I turned it up. Yes, there should be enough volume for small to medium gigs, but thats not the only concern here is it ? I noticed as the volume increased, the tone decreased.
The louder you play , the less tone you will have . This seems to be a common trait with most of these small solid state combo's . They have a "sweet spot" you need to stay within , or you will not have control over your tone if you exceed. I was MOST impressed with the TC Electronics Mini heads with a 4x10 cab underneath. But then I am back to hauling two pieces of gears, two cases, bla bla bla.
Kind of defeats the " smaller combo" mentality.
I do think for a casual small club player looking for a small
portable combo rig, you should look at the Fender Rumble 500.
However , if you want the best tone with unlimited volume, you will be wanting an Ampeg, Dave Eden World Tour, or similar high wattage name brand rig.
It's a very good value for the money.....but you do get what you pay for !

Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

This a great amp when you consider the tone, price, and weight. It doesn't put out a lot of deep bass that you feel in your chest; the center frequency for the bass control is only 80hz. This amp is only good for smaller venues, unless you have good monitors and/or a good PA.

Despite the fact that the amp doesn't produce much deep bass, it does sound very good. I play a passive 5 string J-Bass, so I don't have an onboard preamp to boost bass frequencies.

I like the tone of the amp with everything set flat except for the Bass control set to "10". I have no use for the "effects" buttons and the overdrive circuit.

Something that I really like is the vintage look of the amp.

I think that this a great amp for a younger player to grow into as well as a very portable great sounding amp for a working/professional player in night-clubs.

I chose this amp over the Rumble 200. I think that the Rumble 200 and Rumble 500 both sound great; I just wanted the additional headroom of the Rumble 500.

        Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

        I'm very pleased with this combo. At the moment, I play mostly blues, and I was able to get an ideal tone for my bass (tweeter off and contour selected), deep, full and loud. Those 2 x 10s put out a lot of sound. I've only played small venues with it, but there is plenty of power to spare. My only negative is I still haven't figured out how to use the overdrive effectively, but I haven't had a need for it, anyway. At 36 pounds, it's very transportable, so no complaints there.

                I have the Fender Rumble 500 paired with the Fender Rumble 115 as an extension cabinet. So the config is 500 watts, two 10's, one 15 and two compression tweeters.

                This is the best rig I have owned - up to and including my SVT with the 8/10 cab. Between the exceptional tone and portability, hands down, a versatile and fun rig. Easy to find a great tone and easy to change when necessary. I am playing a Fender P-Bass through it with flat wounds and the responsiveness is incomparable. I am struggling to find something to improve upon, and I just can't. Thank you Fender for thinking of us bassists once again.

                    Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

                    Wow. I went into the 500/2-10 Combo for its weight and portability, but I came away with a lot of respect for it. It has a lot of punch already and I added a Rumble 112 Cabinet to it and it sounds awesome. i watched the online video about the 3 tone-sculpting buttons, and was intrigued. The settings each have their places and times for use, but my old '79 Jazz Bass sounds superb with all tone controls flat. So does my '78 Precision Special (much different than what they're calling a P Special nowadays!). I have a Mesa M9 Carbine with a Mesa 4-10 Roadhouse Cab to compare to, and for the small amount of cash the Rumbles set me back, the Fenders hold their own at volumes that I play at. I can no longer haul the Mesa stuff around for its heft, but the Rumble stuff fits the bill in the clubs and small-to-medium venues where I mostly play, and it weighs a lot less than a suitcase my wife would pack for a weekend getaway!

                    I think I made a wise decision, grasshopper. Don't be afraid to lose the weight.
