Fender Rumble 500v3 Head ROCKS!
This Fender Rumble 500 Class D Bass amp is pretty fantastic.
It's very light, and comes with its own gig bag.
I had been looking for one system that I could play all kinds of venus with, and this is it.
I bought with both the Rumble™ 2X8 Cabinet, and the Rumble™ 410 Cabinet.
For small clubs or worship gigs, the 2X8 cab is plenty by itself, and is surprisingly loud and beefy. But you do need to pump up the bass in the four band EQ section to make up for the size of the speakers. The two 8's can easily handle the 500 watts of the head, and the sound is pretty spectacular.
At only 24 pounds, it's really easy to carry in one hand, with your bass in the other hand, and the amp slung over your shoulder in the gig bag, with the included shoulder strap.
The 4X10 cab is rated at 1000 watts, and is a very good sounding, but not too heavy piece of gear. At 65 pounds, and with recessed handles on both sides, I can get it in the back of my either my van or my SUV without hurting myself.
The 410 alone with the 500 watt head sounds great, but with both the 4X10 AND the 2X8, you have a stack that can do pretty much anything.
The head is pretty straightforward, and I really like the sound of both the "vintage" button, and the "overdrive" section.
So far, I've been able to dial in any sound I've needed, with complete confidence that I have way more power than I'll ever need.
Both the 2X8 and 4X10 cabs have a magnetic locking system that keeps the head "glued" to the four recessed "dimples" on the top of each box.
I can't imagine ever needing to buy another bass rig.
I think I'm all set!
