This is really a good, amp, not the best obviously because you get what you pay for, but it is a great amp for the price range! People keep complainging that, "It crackles" and "It's to quiet", but they obviously are amuatuers because they dont understand the term of a PRACTICE AMP! This amp is designed for beginners and for private playing to level-up your skills. The crackling can easily be fixed that everyone seems to be complaing about by unpluging any other cord in the outlet that your amp is connected to. I get crakling all the time and this always helps. Also, if your using the cord that came with the Squier bundle pack, its a cheap cord and I advise you upgrade to remove the crakling noises. The second problem people seem to be complaing about is that they don't seem to realise its a practice amp for bedroom playing by yourself. If you go play in a band, OF COURSE your going to get drowned out! Your bandmates are probably going to have higher wattage than your amp and if your with a drummer, you need at least a 100watt amp to play with a drummer. Practice amps dont go very loud and if you really strain it to, it will sound bad because it wasnt DESIGNED for that! All in all, I give this 4 stars because the only flaw that isnt fixable with this amp is a slight buzz when you turn up the treble high. It's a great amp, and if your starting to learn how to play, go get it BUT get it in the Squier pack because this amp by itself for the price is not really a "steal" but I think it has great tone and you really get a deal from it by buying the Squier pack if you dont already own a bass.

The Rumble 15 is best when used in a very small room by yourself. Once you get together with a guitar and drum you'll be drowned out even when they're at their lowest settings. As a practice alone amp where you don't want to wake the wife and kiddies it's ok, but otherwise go for a louder amp.

this thing makes me feel like puking.

By DaConcistidor

from michagan

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

My parents got me this amp in a value pack. I generally dont trust value packs. This amp cracks, has a terrible range of tones, and little volume. when you crank it up, it sounds like all of the notes are put in a blender, and it has a horrid overdrive, with a huge load of feedback. DONT buy it.

this amp stinks don't get it

By mr.metal

from hellville

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

i really want to protect anybody from getting this amp,its terrible i got this for my first amp with the fender bass pak in the next 5 minutes i was crying. this amp makes a really annoying screechy sound past half volume, and if you only turn it up half way you can't hear it if your playing with a band.Rumble 15 also has terrible tone, i tried to play with my friend who plays guitar roland micro cube and my other friend on drums and my dad said "i'll buy you a new amp,that one just has horrible tone." so please don't get this amp i'd be happier with a target amp (if they even make them).

Fairly decent practice amp...

By Guitarslinger

from Weeki Wachee, FL

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

My brother actually owns this amp. I play it occasionally with his Yamaha RBX170, usually just to practice or goof around. The amp sounds fine at fairly low volumes, but when it is cranked up the low end is a bit overpowering. It drowns out all the guitar when my friend and I play together. However, it is fine as a practice amp. If you're going to be playing in a band, though, then get a GK or something.

Good, but Pricey Practice Amp

By Scott Simontis

from Alpharetta, GA

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

For a 15 watt practice amp, the Rumble 15 actually has some volume. However, the eight inch speaker lacks the depth needed for lower notes, and the amp is a little pricey for a simple practice amp. If you purchase it, don?t expect it to be more than a practice amp, because you will be disappointed by the lack of depth from the speaker.

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

Honestly, this is probably the worst amp ever based on my pefernce. I bought one on christmas of 06' and by the end of this past January it started making all these kinds of crackling noises. At high level this thing in complete trash. To me i think it is over priced considering its quality. To whoever is reading i suggest not buying this unless u plan on playing quietly.

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

The Rumble 15 is good for starters. I own it and it is pretty reliable. I use it for my Squier Standard Jazz. It has o.k sound. The quality is great and value is too. The 15w and 18" driver is good. Overall it is good for starters.

If you only want to practice...

By Iplaybass

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

I got this amp about a year ago as part of the starter pack with a squier bass. Good stuff first: It's small enough to take anywhere; I've brought it to school on the bus before. It's fine as a practice amp, if you keep the volume down. It also has very few feedback issues, I've only had feedback once or twice. Bad stuff: The low end sucks. And 8-inch speaker just isn't enough to provide real deep tones. It's also way too quiet. I can't hear myself when playing with a drummer. He has to muffle his drums with paper towels at practices. Completely insufficient for any type of gigging. Overall, I'd say its kinda nice to have as a backup, practice amp or if you want to travel. But for any real playing with other people, get something else.

Great Practice Amp

By Kyle Brown

from Altadena, Ca

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This little amp packs some serious BIG sound. It not venue worthy but makes a great practice Amp. Its very simple to use design allows even my grandmother to figure out whats up. 15watts doesn't sound like a lot but its more than enough power to crank it up and bother your neighbors!

Poor value for a poor amp

By keolakhone MEKSVANH

from Danbury, CT

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

I got this awhile back when I first started playing bass, having known nothing about amps. It sufficed for awhile, but the tone is pretty bad. I can never seem to get a good sound out of it, though it's pretty light. I wouldn't waste my time with it, but if I had to, I'd try getting a used one from here. Better value.

Great clean sound for guitars

About Me Experienced

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

Just like the Beatles preferred a Bassman for regular guitar work, I love the clean tone from this amp. If you get your fuzz from pedals or just love clean guitar sound,you can use the equalization to dail up some tasty tones on this amp. Good stuff.

Too Expensive, Lots of Feedback but Good for Beginners

By Quinn Obropta

from Hillsborough, NJ

See all my reviews

Pros

  • Easy to store
  • light

Cons

  • Feedback At Higher Volume
  • Way overpriced

Best Uses

  • Jamming
  • Practicing

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This amp worked great for me as a beginner. I used it for four months before it proved too weak to do what I needed. The main two downsides are the high amounts of feedback at higher volumes, and the price. This is an amp worth around 80 dollars, but it is sold for much more. I would say to buy a used one instead, much more worth it.

Good Starter Amp

By chipmunk2510

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

I bought this amp when I first started playing bass. For a starter amp it can get very loud, I can be heard in a band setting with a drummer who plays very hard. With EQ tweaking you can dial in a jazzy growl to a bleeding treble tone. It has a headphone jack for late night practice or when you don't want to disturb your rents. Also included is a CD input which is good when you want to play along with a song. Some flaws are that playing too long at an extremely high volume can cause the amp to become muddy, with to definition to the notes. Also the fur covering it has turns me off because I have cats and their hair gets caught in it easily. For the price I would reccommend this amp to a beginners looking for a nice practice amp.

A True Bass Amplification

By StratKRock_2010

from Irvine, CA

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

The sound this amplifier creates surprises me at how high the volume can get to. At 15 watts, the amplifier has that good, deep bass sound. This amplifier is very good for practice, and is light enough to carry it wherever you want. Consider buying this amplifier just for practice, because it is a very good bass amp for practice everywhere.

At least it was light.

By Kurasuke

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

I got it when I first started playing, and I really haven't liked it. The only redeeming quality is that it is light, and so I can bring it back and forth between school and home.

Pricey

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

Overall I won't say this is a bad practice amp, it does what you would expect from a practice amp. Now you might be able to use this amp for a small and I mean really small like jail cell type gig >,> or campfires but it's just a practice amp. The thing I was most dissappointed was if you turned the volume up over 5 it has the most horrid tone and just buzz and buzzes to no end. Though I guess that's expected of most amps like that. The thing that got me down about this amp was the lack of features for the price. I thought this was a bit pricey for a practice amp and it lacked any real tone or mid controls. I wasn't really looking for a gimmick or such but for a high price some mid controls would be nice. If you have some money and want to have a nice small amp to fool around with get this one, but remember for prices much lower you can get an amp that's just about the same as the Fender Rumble 15 watt.

Not that great

By JustForFun

from Murfreesboro, TN

Comments about Fender Rumble 15 Bass Combo Amp:

This was my first bass amp. It is definitely loud enough for practicing, but there is just way too much feedback coming from this thing. Just spend a little more money and buy a nicer bass amp.
