I purchased the Fender Rumble 500 a few weeks ago and used it for the first time today at an outdoor event. I was totally pleased with this amp. It had way more power I would need. The main reason I purchased it was its lightweight 36 pounds. I can carry my bass and this amp in one trip. I had the master volume at "2"and I was plenty loud. I was totally pleased with it. I always loved the classic Fender look (I have a 1966 Bassman as well, and a Fender 112 Plus).
I actually purchased the Fender Rumble 200 (1-15", 200 watts) before this and later noticed that the Rumble 500 (2-10", 500 watts) utilized the same exact cabinet, yet for $100 more I have more than twice the power at the same weight. My local Guitar Center had the Rumble 200 and Rumble 100 (1-12", 100 watts, 22 pounds) in the showroom and, because I wanted something with power, I purchased the Rumble 200. If, the Rumble 500 was there, I would have purchased it at the time.
I'm considering purchasing the Rumble 100 for rehearsal use. At 100 watts and 22 pounds weight, it is a great portable amp. Depending on your situation, I would not hesitate to recommend any of the Fender Rumble bass amps.
DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS: I would prefer the controls at the front of the amp, not the rear. I would also add an AC outlet (for devices, such as pedal tuner, pedal board, etc). I would also add a compartment on the back to keep, at least, the amp power cable and possibly, accessories (tuner, power strip, etc). Just a thought.

The amp puts out a great tone, and I would have loved to keep it, except the volume pot was scratchy. I went through FOUR of these amps with a scratchy volume pot before I finally returned it and went with the GK MB212-ii, which I've not regretted for one second. I guess I just went through a bad batch because these have great reviews everywhere.. Just not from me.

Not as powerful as I had hoped...

By BRIAN

from Ohio

Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

I bought this amp thinking it would blow away my ACOUSTIC b200. This amp is said to have 350 watts by itself (no external cab, just the combo itself) When I turned the gain up to about ten o clock and the master volume to about one o clock, I figured I would get moster volume out of this baby. It wasnt nearly as loud as I had hoped, and the speakers sounded farty (like when an amp cant produce enough power to push them). I ran my acoustic b200 in a side-by-side comparison,(using the same bass, an american standard p bass v) and the acoustic was TWICE AS LOUD and sounded cleaner than the rumble 500. Keep in mind, this amp only 200 watts, and the fender rumble has 350? Something doesnt add up to me... I never thought I would give a bad review for a fender product, but this has proved me wrong!

    Buy It . You Wont' be Disappointed.

    By Thong

    from Manchester CT

    Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

    I've had so many high end amps,speakers,and combos and this is the best I've had. With only (2) 10" speakers this combo is loud. But nicest thing is of course " the sound ". Everyone of my bass guitar sounds "Natural" through this combo. It doesn't sound over eq'd or colored. I have both active and passive basses and even my passive J bass sounds punchy (slapping) without any boost in the amp eq. section at all. The tweeter isn't harsh. the bottom end is tight and the mids have nice warm presence. Overall,you can pleasantly hear all the sound spectrum and my eq settings are just pretty much flat.The amp has very useful features (bright , contour, vintage ) to suit any style of playing and does them very well. I love this combo and would look forward to buying the extension cabinet to experiment. The price is way too good to believe that you are getting this kind of quality.

    GOOD BASS AMP

    By LANCE MEDRANO

    from El Paso, Texas

    Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

    This amp produces great tone. Nice deep lows, crisp mids and highs. This amp sounds great. The 10" Eminence Speakers are nice and punchy. I play a Highway One Precision Bass with Bartolini pickups and it's a good match for this amp. This combo only weighs about 35 lbs. so it's easy to haul around. Solid construction and they did a really good job with the tolex covering, unlike the older amps, this amp only has one overlapping seam at the bottom where it isn't noticeable. I've tried the previous Fender Rumble models and this versions sounds just as good without the extra weight. Great job Fender!!!

    A great amp!

    By Jeff

    from Hopatcong, NJ

    Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

    After looking at various amps, I chose the Rumble 500 with the 2x10" speakers. Size, weight and sound are great! The only issue is having the direct out after the signal goes through the circuit; a pre-post choice would be best, but it worked great on my outdoor gig. This replaced a Peavey Combo 300 that I replaced the 15" Black Widow Speaker with an Eminence 15" to reduce the weight from 80 lbs to 65 lbs. The Rumble works great for all venue sizes. The eq section along with the patches and horn gives you a huge sonic pallet!

    What more could you ask for?

    By Joshua

    from Indianapolis Indiana

    Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

    I've had this amp for a couple of weeks now. Fender did a great job making this amp. The construction is great and just feel high quality even though it weighs only 36 lbs. The 2 10s sound great and it is loud. For the first time in nearly 10 years my drummer told me to turn down. 3 tone toggles and horn on/off leave little to be desired. I put a mxr m87 comp in front of it and it sounds amazing.

      I have been taking lessons for two years using an old Fender rumble 75 and an Acoustic 15W (practice).
      When I had the opportunity to upgrade, I first bought the Fender 200 and that was the difference between a Chevrolet and a Cadillac. An unexpected opportunity allowed me to trade-in the Fender 200 within the 45 day return period for the Fender 500 and that was the difference between a Cadillac and a Lexus

        Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

        I been playing bass guitar for about 20 years now. I recently owned a Yamaha Combo bass amp 440 watts. That did not have the punch and power. I sold it. I decided to try the Ampeg bass combo BA210V2 2X10 450 watts. It was ok, but honestly I was not impressed. It lacked the low end punch and power. Some of my friends asked me to try a fender rumble bass combo amp. So I went to the Guitar store and tried out a Fender rumble 200 watt combo, amazing! The sales man asked me what kind music I played. I play old Metal, hard rock, black sabbith, ozzy, motor head, megadeath, metallica, cream, etc. So I decided to get the fender rumble 500 watt combo! wow it is an amazing amp! awesome low end, awesome punch! very powerful bass combo amp! it is really what I have been looking for in a bass combo amp. I use a Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. Ray4 Electric Bass Guitar and it sounds amazing!

              I recently made the switch from guitarist to bassist. I wanted a decent but affordable solid state bass amp that I could grow into. And after extensive research, I settled on the 500 watt Rumble. It turned out to be a very good investment. I can play it loud or at soft "apartment levels." Either way, it sounds good. It works well with headphones. In addition, I can plug my phone or computer into the amp and play music through the amp while also playing the bass -- which is a great way to practice. I'm sure it wouldn't compare to an expensive tube amp. But for what it is, I couldn't be happier.

                        I use this amp to get that good old vintage Fender Bassman sound. I use the Vintage circuit and set the Gain at 1o'clock. I set all the tone controls at noon, and then I turn up the master to the desired volume level. I really love the Vintage circuit. It gives the amp a fuller, little bit overdriven dark sound that is hard to find on most modern amps. I think it is very loud for a 2/10 rig. I have a 15 extension cab, but have never used it with this amp. I play mostly blues and Americana sorts of music and have larger rigs if I need them, But I find myself using this one whenever the situation is right. It has a good direct out, so if you are playing a large venue with a good PA it is a fine stage monitor. I have a 2/10 Fender Bassman that I spent almost twice as much on five years ago and it weighs twice as much, but this Rumble sounds much,much better to me. For the style of music I like to play, I am very happy with this amp.

                          The amp puts out a great tone, and I would have loved to keep it, except the volume pot was scratchy. I went through FOUR of these amps with a scratchy volume pot before I finally returned it and went with the GK MB212-ii, which I've not regretted for one second. I guess I just went through a bad batch because these have great reviews everywhere.. Just not from me.

                          Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

                          This a great amp when you consider the tone, price, and weight. It doesn't put out a lot of deep bass that you feel in your chest; the center frequency for the bass control is only 80hz. This amp is only good for smaller venues, unless you have good monitors and/or a good PA.

                          Despite the fact that the amp doesn't produce much deep bass, it does sound very good. I play a passive 5 string J-Bass, so I don't have an onboard preamp to boost bass frequencies.

                          I like the tone of the amp with everything set flat except for the Bass control set to "10". I have no use for the "effects" buttons and the overdrive circuit.

                          Something that I really like is the vintage look of the amp.

                          I think that this a great amp for a younger player to grow into as well as a very portable great sounding amp for a working/professional player in night-clubs.

                          I chose this amp over the Rumble 200. I think that the Rumble 200 and Rumble 500 both sound great; I just wanted the additional headroom of the Rumble 500.

                            Comments about Fender Rumble 500 2x10 500W Bass Combo Amp:

                            I'm very pleased with this combo. At the moment, I play mostly blues, and I was able to get an ideal tone for my bass (tweeter off and contour selected), deep, full and loud. Those 2 x 10s put out a lot of sound. I've only played small venues with it, but there is plenty of power to spare. My only negative is I still haven't figured out how to use the overdrive effectively, but I haven't had a need for it, anyway. At 36 pounds, it's very transportable, so no complaints there.
