I am very happy with the new Fender Rumble V3 bass amp that i purchased. I can get any sound that I may want out of it, and the 500 watts of power is plenty of power. I also purchased two Fender speaker cabinets.........the Rumble 115 and the Rumble 410. The sound I get from this combo is great. I would highly recommend this set up to any bass player looking for power and quality tone. FIVE STARS from me.

The head it's self is great. But it didn't come with a carry bag like advertised. I didn't take it back to guitar center because it's a hassle when they're involved. So I just took my lose and moved on.

        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.

                PUNCH!

                Comments about Fender RUMBLE 500W Bass Amp Head:

                I paired this little monster up with the 4X10 and 1X15 RUMBLE stack...Talk about "pushing air"! The tone goes from a crisp, brilliance (BRIGHT SWITCH in the tone pallet) to a deep, throaty, tube sound (VINTAGE SWITCH in the tone pallet). There is also a CONTOUR SWITCH (almost like a compressor) that gives you a soft, mid-range cut that's great for jazz. The OVER-DRIVE is the best I've ever used and offers a wide range of effects. The unit is feather light and comes with a sturdy, padded, gig bag. As far as power; you can play just about any gig short of a "stadium". So far I've found no faults with the head, though I think a "clip" indicator would be helpful. I've been playing bass for 45+ years and have never been disappointed with Fender.
