Very Happy with my Rumble 100 combo
The first great thing about this combo amp is the weight, or lack there of.
Other reviews say "I can't believe how much volume and sound comes out of this little combo",, I would have to agree 100%, did I mention this combo weighs like nothing !!!!
So far I've just been using it at rehearsals with my rock cover band, as far as using it in a live club situation it "might" be fine on its own, if your going direct to the FOH then no worries at all I'm thinking, the Rumble 100 should be plenty loud enough to use as a stage monitor, and perhaps putting it on a tilt back stand would really make it even better as a monitor.
I'm a lifetime pro bassist playing small to very large venues, I use 5 string passive bass's and tend to spend a lot of time on my low B string, this combo handles my low B string with no problems, all though I'm not playing in a metal band with ear bleeding volume,, but I have cranked up this amp pretty loud and it didn't break up on me.
So for rehearsals, small gigs or gigs with PA support I think this Rumble 100 would be fine, for my med sized gigs I use my Rumble V3 500, a amazing combo as well, when I want to blow the windows out of a venue then I use my much loved GK Neo 212 series ll cab with my GK MB500 or MB200 head.
Speaking of GK, I was really torn between getting the Rumble V3 100 or the GK MB112 series ll combo, I decided on the the Rumble 100 because of the cheaper price and it being lighter than the GK MB112 combo.
I do own the first generation GK MB112 combo but it died on me last year so I needed another lightweight rehearsal combo, the Rumble 100 is a perfect fit.
As far as sound and punch I suspect the GK MB112 might be more powerful and fuller sounding than the Rumble 100,, so in the very near future I will be also be purchasing the GK MB112 to use for small gigs, the Rumble 100 can then be my backup combo.
I'm a big fan of always having backup gear at every gig I'm working, any player that doesn't take a backup bass or bass amp to a gig is really taking a chance, especially when you're working pro big money gigs.
I've had amps and guitars fail on me at gigs before, luckily I have ALWAYS had backup.
Anyhow, I highly recommend the Rumble V3 100 bass combo and I dare you to not get a huge smile on your face when you pick it up to move it.
