Vintage Vibe with Modern Features!

Fender gives bassists of all levels a solid amp that can handle anything. Plug into the Fender Rumble 200 head for serious bass tone in a compact package! This black beast offers a pummeling 200 watts, complete with both gain and blend controls in the overdrive section, so you can bring the perfect amount of overdrive into your sound. In fact, an optional footswitch is available that lets you easily bring the overdrive in and out whenever you need some extra tonal tenacity.

Fender Rumble 200 Bass Amp Head at a Glance:
  • Sound-shaping and more
  • More than just a solid performance tool
  • Matching cabs complete your rig
Sound-shaping and more

The Rumble 200's 4-band EQ helps to shape your sound, and the 3-button voicing palette sculpts the sound further. Choose between bright (adds a treble zing to the sound), contour (low-end boost), or vintage (classic bass tone with deep lows and vintage character). These give you a ton of flexibility to find your signature sound. The XLR line output can pump the tone you love straight into the PA for bigger gigs. This will make your sound tech happy, since it'll greatly simplify getting you pumped into the PA. Need a little extra teeth for a particular song or passage? The Rumble 200's built-in overdrive has your back. Get the optional footswitch for instant onstage convenience.

More than just a solid performance tool

The Rumble 200 head isn't just about performance, though; it also helps you practice. It's stuffed with a handy aux input that you can plug your iPod, laptop, drum machine, or other practice gear into. And there's a 1/4" headphone jack, so you can practice late into the night.

Matching cabs complete your rig

To complete your rig, Fender has the perfect match for your Rumble amplifier. Choose from the wall of sound provided by a 4 x 10" cab, or choose the 1 x 15" for incredibly fat, powerful low end.

Fender Rumble 200 Bass Amp Head Features:
  • 200 watts for serious stage presence
  • Patented Magnetic Rumble Head Attachment System keeps your head safely in place
  • Vintage vibe with modern features
  • Footswitchable overdrive for extra aggression (footswitch available separately)

Pro features & tone, super reliable

I've had four rumble amps since Fender first released the series and all of them have been superb. The first one was a 150 watt 15" model. The LOUD ROCK band I played in required I use it FULL BLAST for four hours each night. It never failed. Then we discovered that the effects send can be used to daisy-chain two or more of these together for more volume and coverage. So I bought another one and used them stacked for outdoor concert or gigs in big rooms. What most people do not realize is that Rumble amps have an internal multi-band compressor called the "delta comp." It’s like the compressor on more expensive amps (TC) but operates automatically in the background as it has no control knobs to adjust. For tweaky dudes, that may seem a slight disadvantage since they can't play with their pet little knobs. For most of us practical players, the simplicity is preferable. Since I loved those amps but did not love the heavy particle board cabs, I decided to buy the heads and build my own cabs of lightweight baltic birch plywood. The weight difference was astonishing! About a year after that, Fender came out with the new line of Rumble amps in baltic birch. What a BIRCH!So, I have lots of experience with these rumble amps over the last ten years! Despite being frozen in a winter van and baked in sweltering summer heat, then playing FULL BORE for hours on end... none of them have ever failed. These have the balanced DI out which sounds great through any pro PA. Any FOH engineer loves that since it saves him time and hassle, plus it sends him a well-massaged tone at consistent manageable level. I am reviewing this particular head because it was the first head-only version I bought, but I also have the 250 w/ 2 x 10" and the now discontinued 350 head.About the only thing I don't LOVE about these are the distortion features. That’s just my personal taste because I HATE distortion on bass. But it's kind of nice to know that if someone wants to do Jumpin' Jack Flash or Won't Get Fooled Again... I'm ready. I also prefer the tone controls on the older models because they are simpler. Fender markets to young hipsters who ask for these "kiddie" features. Silly changes to the original design do not improve the product, but hey, corporations want the sales any way they can get them. Other than those niggling gripes, the new amps are just as good sounding and reliable. And because Fender (wisely) decided to improve the cabinets by using lightweight, super-strong Baltic birch Plywood, you don't need a shop full of tools to shed pounds. I can fully recommend ALL the Rumble bass amps for any pro player. They have pro tone, pro features and pro reliability, but at a reasonable price.

good sound ! great price !

I bought it here at Sweetwater about 7 months ago , fast shipping , great service ... i have used it for church events , conventions and concerts ... good sounding amp at a great price ... if you are looking for a lightweight , reliable amp with 200w this is it ... it comes with a carry bag , 5 years warranty with fender and great customer service from sweetwater ...


While this amp basically had a decent tone, it didn't have much in the way of real punch. The top-end on these is a little fizzy and brittle, which in my experience indicates inferior components, which would be consistent with the price. If you're just starting out this would be a decent, affordable way to go, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're seriously making a living at this.
