When I started shopping for a new amp head, I came down between this amp and the Ampeg Portaflex 500. I decided to go with the Fender because of all of the poor reliability issues that the Ampeg seems to have, and the generous 5 year warranty that Fender offers.

I've had this amp for about 3 weeks now and have gigged it out twice in that time. In a word: Awesome! Plenty of power, sounds very nice. The 4 band preamp is capable of dialing in lots of usable tones. Even the overdrive channel is very musical rather than just a generic dirt channel. The aux in and headphone jacks are a nice touch; I like that I can play along to tunes without having to haul out a speaker cabinet.

My unit came well packed by Fender. The included carry bag seems very sturdy and thickly padded, with a good sized pouch on the front for storage of a speaker cable and a couple accessories. The small pocket on the back would work for a few sheets of sheet music and maybe some business cards. And it's so light! the 5lb weight is very nice after a 3 hour gig, and it runs very cool so you can pick it right up and throw it in its bag after a long night without worries about it getting too hot.

The one negative I will assign to this head is that the DI is post preamp only, so if you tend to make adjustments on the fly while playing a show it's going to drive your sound man nuts. No pre/post switch either. Aside from that, it's probably the best bang for the buck out there right now. If they come out with an 800 watt version of this like Ampeg did with the Portaflex series, I'll definitely be getting one.

      Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500W Bass Amp Head:

      This head is perfect for me and my band. The four-band EQ plus the Vintage, Contour & Bright presets (Vintage is my favorite) provides a wealth of tonal options. Having built-in overdrive is also an excellent feature. It allows me to add just a touch of dirt to my tone.

      The portability is also a huge plus. The fact that it came with a gig bag is a huge benefit.

            I have it paired with a Rumble 410 cab and the sound is incredible. Versatile, powerful ... classic sound. I'll be adding a 115 cab for large events.

              Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500W Bass Amp Head:

              I got this head along with the rumble 410 cab. It sounds great! I really enjoy the different settings as far as bright/contour/vintage. They really make a difference and you can really focus your sound/tone the way you want it. It's lightweight and comes with a gig bag to carry the head along with cables you need.

                  Man I was tired of lugging around an 85 pound bass combo amp. This head and a the rumble 2x10 cabinet weigh in at a little over 30 pounds. Sounds really good with my P-Bass Nice and fat with good definition.
