I'm learning the bass and needed an inexpensive amp to use while practicing at home. I noodled with a few other brands at various music stores, but I've always been drawn to the Fender products. The sound is nice and tight with the low E pulsing through clearly, without breakup or rattle. The controls are simple and some good sounds can be coaxed out without too much adjustment. The headphone out is a lifesaver since I find myself only having practice time after the rest of the family has wandered off to bed. I expect the Aux in will be a handy feature for practice after I can keep up with a play-along. If I stick with Bass, I believe I may pick up one of the Rumble 15's Bigger brothers, but this one will definitely remain behind my easy chair; ready for quiet picking.
My wife and I just purchased my Fender Rumble 15 online to go with my new Squire Affinity bass guitar for my birthday. I'm a beginner and I wanted something that I was sure would do everything that I wanted it to. This amp is MORE than I ever expected and when I plugged it in and started tuning my new bass it blew both of us away. Delivery was fast and efficient. I had it delivered to the Marietta, Georgia store for my wife to pick up, and it actually came in one day sooner than I was expecting. The crew at the store were exceptionally helpful to my wife when she stopped by and had everything ready for her. You all rock!
I just took this amp home from Guitar Center, who filled the online order for it very quickly. I plugged my Carvin LB76W (six string bass) and found that it handled the low B string and high C strings very well. This baby amp has a couple satisfying tones to be found, is a great value and seems very well built. Looks good, is too loud for to crank in an apt, but may not compete real well with a loud drummer. All in all, this is what I hoped for and expected from the guys who made my favorite guitars and amps: Fender.
Played first gig with this lil guy. We have a great drummer that ended up being too mic'd up. This beast kept up and sounded great!! Perfect for practice, works well with decent headphones for the apartment, and will hold its own! Must have.
I got this amp about a year and a half ago and it's a must have for starting to intermediate bassists. I just use it to practice in my room, but I played a gig with it once and it doesn't quite cut the mustard for volume on stage.
The Rumble 15, being the baby of the rumble series, sure packs a punch for a baby. This little guy may not seem very big from pictures, but it weighs in at a whopping 25 pounds. For $99.99, this thing is a steal. It has bass, treble, and mid knobs, as well as a master volume. It also comes with Auxiliary inputs which allow jam-alongs. The only other feature is a headphone input for quiet, late night jams. Even at 1/4 volume, treble and mid at 2 o'clock, bass at 3 o'clock, this little powerhouse still shakes the walls. It is very rugged with a kick-proof grille, although I don't recommend kicking amps either way. The quality is astounding for a beginner amp. Fender hasn't necessarily been known for putting out great amps, but this little guy is a great buy for small gigs or living room practice sessions.
Really pleased with the fit and finish of Fender products these days. When I first started playing 29 years ago, something this nice would have been a lot more cash. Decent tonal control on the three band EQ, amp/speaker gets woofy over about half but this is a practice amp. A practice amp. If you need more speaker throw than you get from a decent TV set, you probably need to buy a larger amp. All in all, the littlest Rumble is great band for the buck and gets you heard across the room.
This amp was included with my Fender Squier J-bass, it handles the entire range of the bass guitar very well. The EQ is only 3 band but you can still dial in your tone very well, now obviously it isn't going to be your main amp but it's great for practice situations and the headphone jack is a great advantage for practicing at night in a crowded house. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive practice amp, but give it four stars because you will still need a main amp for performances.
This review is an update to my "Its Time to Rumble On" review of the Fender Rumble 15 amplifier, posted 12/22/10. I've had this amp for about 3 months now. I've used it, but not abused it, almost every day and it is still working fine -- no reliability problems to report and I'm still happy with my purchase.
Just bought this amp today. I needed a practice amp as I'm tired of moving my Ashdown Mag400 from room to room. I honestly didn't expect such volume from a 15 watt amp. My wife kept telling me to turn it down. The equalizer can dial up any bass style that you want. I would definitely recommend this amp.
