Before you read my review, you should know that I am primarily a guitarist and this is the first bass amp I have owned. I am however an experienced musician, and I know what a good sound is. Having said that, I can tell you that I've never had trouble finding a good tone with this amp (I use a Squier affinity PJ bass with it, which I have also written an review on). The three voicing buttons make this amp quite versatile, and I especially love the bright switch. The gain control is very responsive, and turning it up will add some bite to your tone, while turning it down will mellow it out. The 4 band EQ is also quite responsive, and its easy to dial in a good tone. The drive channel adds to the versatility of the amp, and is very responsive to the master gain control. I can't say it produces the best driven sound, but it's decent and a great feature nonetheless. Can you gig with it? It's certainly loud enough. I live in a fairly large house and with the master volume at around 9 o'clock you can hear the amp from outside, so I'd say you could use it for any small venues, and it could definitely be heard over a drummer at rehearsals. If you mic it up or use the line out directly to a PA, you could even use it at some larger venues. That being said, if you want an amp solely for practice and noise is an issue, I might opt for the Rumble 25. This also the lightest amp I have ever lifted, so transporting it to rehearsals/gigs would be an absolute breeze. How an amp this light can sound this powerful blows my mind. This is a great amp for beginners or experienced players looking for an amp to practice with and bring to small gigs. You can get almost any sound out of this, from vintage to modern, smooth clean to gritty drive. It's no 200W tube amp, but it still sounds great.

I went to Guitar Player to audition this amp as I am now a Senior player with a bad back. 18 lbs sounded really good to me. The sound is "not bad"....but the low notes were undefined and not up to my standards. I tried the Rumble 100 and it blew me away. The 100 is only 4 lbs heavier. For a meer $100 more you get a 12 inch Eminence Speaker(which makes a HUGE difference), an effects loop, and of course 60 more watts. The larger cabinet seems to have been engineered just right for that speaker....as it sounds deep and full at the volume I need....which at 1/4 volume drives a 20 piece Big Band. So FYI...before you pull the trigger on the 40, think twice about the 100......

    Comments about Fender Rumble 40 1x10 40W Bass Combo Amp:

    I had an Acoustic head/cab that was just too big (heavy) for my use. I needed something I could carry to different places and that would fit in my vehicle. I also wanted something that was easy to set up. I have had/used a bunch of different amps, Carvin, Ampeg, Acoustic, Kustom - none even come close to the sounds I get from this amp. The push button options are very handy and I have never had to set the dials off of neutral. Push button mid cut is nice.

    I can plug into the PA using XLR if I need it in a big venue and did just that last week. We were playing a medium sized room (auditorium large enough to seat 200). Usually we use in ear monitors at our usual spot, but we had to use a live stage setup, and I was right next to the drummer. I was worried that the 40 watt amp would be drowned out but it wasn't. In fact at 40 watts I never passed the 12 o'clock position. This little amp can get loud!

        Comments about Fender Rumble 40 1x10 40W Bass Combo Amp:

        So I bought this a month ago after the driver on my Ampeg blew. Getting driver replaced and giving it to my son. Needed an amp for church, immediately. The ease of transport-this thing is bigger then my Ampeg but doesn't make me do side bends from truck to stage. It has an OD channel, built in "compressor" and bright switch. My LP bass is naturally bottom heavy and the bright cleans it up with my Alvarez P/J setup no bright is necessary. GC has a 30day no questions return/exchange policy I figured I would go with the 40 and upsize if necessary. Decided not to since I plug into the house. Did I mentioned the amp sim on the DI out? Between the amp and the wedge I hear relatively the same sound on stage everytime I play, the fact that it is a balanced output from the amp is awesome for an amp this price/size. No F/X loop on this size of this model however between its four band eq, input gain and master volume, OD channel, three voicing switches for my playing setting I don't need it. I would buy this again if only for that classic Fender silver face.

        Don't let the weight fool you

        By Thomas

        from Finksburg, BD

        Comments about Fender Rumble 40 1x10 40W Bass Combo Amp:

        I needed a small amp for practicing at home yet with enough power for taking to be heard when playing open mike nights. For playing at home the important features were the aux mini plug input for playing along with recorded music and the headphones jack so I didn't disturb my wile when practicing while she is watching TV upstairs, For the open mike scenario I wanted a compact, light weight amp with enough power to keep up with the acoustic guitars and vocals being run through the PA. The Fender Rumble 40w is is small and compact (16.5" x 26.5" x 12") and light weight (18 lbs); so, I can grab it go up on the stage plug in, play my three or four songs and then pick up and go, The other features like "bright", "contour" and "vintage" along with the "overdrive" function provide enough sounds and boost to keep up in a small club venue or outside. I originally had purchased the 25w' but, found it fell short when practicing outside with two guitar players. This includes an XLR output should the venue be a little larger.

          Comments about Fender Rumble 40 1x10 40W Bass Combo Amp:

          A long-time cover band bassist (since the 70s), I was looking for a small, lightweight bass amp with reasonable features and good sound for practice, low-volume rehearsals, and the occasional small club/coffeehouse performance. I'm very happy with the Rumble 40 - it has good EQ controls, a line out for pushing sound to a PA, the ability to input an external source for personal practice time (with speaker cutoff when using headphones), and an extremely lightweight cabinet. The 4-band EQ allows me to dial in the sound characteristics of each of my basses (Rickenbacker, MusicMan, Carvin). The amp also has an "overdrive" function, which to my ear creates a buzzy tone, but I find little use for it for the music I play. Above all, the cab is so incredibly lightweight that I can comfortably hold it at arm's length; when handing it to a friend while unloading my car he asked whether there was a speaker in the box. Yes there is, and it sounds great, surprisingly warm for such a lightweight rig. The only negative that I've found is that the bright switch adds a high-pitched background noise to the brighter tone, and that noise also happens to a lesser extent with the treble control. Overall, though, this is a warm-sounding, lightweight bass amp whose warm tone belies its small size.

          Comments about Fender Rumble 40 1x10 40W Bass Combo Amp:

          Got this for home use and for small gigs, but don't the size fool you. This rig puts out a very decent amount of sound and has a great vintage tone switch which also has some overdrive in it without using the overdrive switch. Great versatility of tone and my passive and active basses all sound great. For larger venues I also have the Rumble 500 for when I need the horsepower, but this does a great job and allows me to have the same great tone.
