In Stock!

Vintage Vibe with Modern Features!

If you're after maximum low-end thump, choose the Rumble 500 Combo. This black beast offers a pummeling 500 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 500 Bass Combo Amp at a Glance:
  • Sound-shaping and more
  • More than just a solid performance tool
  • A pair of 10" speakers for punch
Sound-shaping and more

The Rumble 500 Combo'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 500's built-in overdrive has your back. Get the optional footswitch for instant onstage convenience.

More than just a solid performance tool

The Rumble 500 Combo isn't just about performance, though; it 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.

A pair of 10" speakers for punch

Fender loaded the Rumble 500 with a pair of 10" speakers - the perfect choice for making sure your bass punches through the mix.

Fender Rumble 500 Bass Combo Amp Features:
  • 500 watts for serious stage presence
  • Dual 10" speakers deliver strong punch
  • Vintage vibe with modern features
  • Footswitchable overdrive for extra aggression (footswitch available separately)

Fender Rumble 500

Best Amp For the money there is out there!
5/5

Excellent

I bought this cause my Ampeg BA 115 wasn't cutting it for keeping up with my loud guitarists. I love my Ampeg, but it weighs way more than this Rumble and puts out much less power (150 watts). This new line of rumbles is just great! Loud, clear tone and really light! The overdrive function is nice, lettin you add grit to your sound, thus cutting through the mix better. I also bought the Rumble 4x10 cab, allowing me to use all 500 watts through 6x10 speakers! My own wall of doom! My sales engineer, Evan Mulvihil was great and very helpful too. I play hard rock in a band, and this beast is allowing to play at another level! Buy it. Done!

Totally unxpected!

I just received this combo and the new Rumble 115 cab in today. I cannot believe what I'm hearing (and seeing)! They are both incredibly compact and lightweight, yet pack an amazing solid punch and awesome tone that I just cannot describe fully on this page. It's definitely something that has to be experienced in person. I will say this though; you will NOT regret purchasing this combo. By itself it's an incredible unit. Add the 15" cab and you should be able to play just about anywhere. Oh, and let's face it. You can't beat the price they're charging! Thanks to my salesman Tyler Berggren at Sweetwater for his excellent service. I've made a few purchases recently and he's been very professional.

The new go to bass rig

I work as a musician a few times a week and have never found in a lightweight combo anything that suits my needs. Either I'm getting too old, or the pay isn't good enough any more, or both but the heavy bass gear is just no fun anymore. I'm glad these things caught my eye and I got on the waiting list. I do own the pro series 1x15 neo cab and I will say that the speakers used in this 500 Rumble combo are darker but not lacking punch (warm is the word here). The head is the best class D head on the market. The head room fantastic, the tone is full, the eq is usefully stacked, it can be pushed hard, and the dirty channel is just a lot of fun. I am used to a bit more features on the back, a pad, line out level, attenuator for the tweeter, speakon, a pre eq line out, but those things are non important when compared to the tone you get. If you have the room in your car and budget I highly recommend pairing this with a pro neo 1x15. While the combo alone could do the job for small clubs some of us still like to feel the earth rumble at our feet. You want to talk about a wall of earth shaking sound just grab an extension and shake the walls. Oh yeah, and it's light, very light both the combo and the pro series ext cab. Great job Fender!

I just purchased the 2014 Fender Rumble 500v3 2x10 Combo, and immediately traded my old Bass AND Guitar rigs (at a loss) to the music store for a new Fender CF-60 Folk Guitar. :-) Bass sounds ridiculously amazing through it, and my Guitar sounds magically perfect through it as well. This Combo Amplifier will shake the house, batten down the hatches!!! It can literally handle ANY Venue around here (and anywhere with the balanced XLR Line Out, including Studio Recording) with ease, and at only 36 lbs. I'm not lugging any heavy gear around anymore. It has a foot switchable Drive level (not a separate channel!), Effects Loop, Aux In, Headphone Jack, and Tweeter on/off switch. It has everything you'd need and nothing you don't, and it's as simple as can be. Did I mention it's LOUD?! It even has a 5-year Warranty!!! For $500?! All of the new 2014 gear (even Guitars and Basses) even have MATCHING 60's/70's Vintage aesthetics, as well as maximum tonal versatility. Fender has REALLY stepped up their game. Somebody there is on the ball... I'd hate to be their competitor right now.
