Rumble 150: nothing but good surprisesI teach a performing stage band class at a small day and boarding school. This amp, for the money, is an impressive addition to live sound performance. For the money, this is a no- brainier, a workhorse with plenty of power and boom,and its more durable than a number of amps we can't keep healthy.

Fender Rumble 150It' sounds great; perhaps more wattage than I needed but does the job! If you're a bass player, you've got to trust Fender and this amp.

Great Piece of Gear!Bought this amp a couple of weeks ago and I love it! I play an ibanez 405 through it and it sounds great! It keeps up when I'm jamming with the band, and its a decent size to transport. I really like the Horn toggle as well. Great tonal control.

ImpressiveMy only problem with this combo is my wife telling me to "TURN IT DOWN!" lol (rattles the floor rafters)
Seriously though, great amp! I bought an Ibanez bass and they are a match made in heaven. I'm a bit annoyed with myself for not going for the 2X10 combo for a bit more high end clarity but this amp will cut through a pretty loud mix.

Surprising PowerI bought this amp a few months back when I got into gigging at the local bar venues. Many of the people i talked to said for a bassist you really need around 300 watts to get good sound. I took a chance and got this instead. I'm guessing those people had not listened to this particular amp before. The rest of my band is quite fond of cranking it up, and their rigs aren't exactly modest. That being said, their number one complaint is that there's too much bass in the mix. I am constantly amazed at how much power this thing has. not just in sheer volume, but actual POWER. Put this thing anywhere but on a concrete foundation and it'll shake the floor beneath you even at modest volumes.
That being said, it isn't without drawbacks. This is an awfully awkward piece of equipment. Moving this thing from gig to gig isn't really any more convenient than moving a 4x10 cab. They've made an effort to ease the burden, but it's still a 55 pound cube about the width of a doorway. Also, the single 15 while powerful does muddy your sound a bit. It's not enough to ruin the experience but if you want a lot of mid range definition you may want to aim for something different.
Overall I'd say this is a solid piece of equipment and good value for money. It's built to be sturdy and makes a good sound. You also get a fair bit of little extras in this model like XLR direct out, 4 band EQ, shaping buttons, and overdrive (which doesn't have enough kick for me, but a decent pedal can fix that). If you're looking for an efficient all-in-one option for gigs and practices I'd definitely recommend this amp.

Great AmpI really am impressed with this amp. I have a more powerful amp with double cabs, but switched to the Rumble for preference.
