    I like the Rumble, too. My son had one, prior to getting his Mark Bass. The Rumble had really good sound.

    Update - the Rumble crashed so... Free Fender Rumble Bass amp for parts to ST member if you can pick up in Central Jersey during weekday. PM me if you want it and I can share the location and make arrangements. First member that can pick it up earliest starting Monday at 9 am and after gets it. It has loud static when you turn it on. No cord. View attachment 141758

    Now what? I'd buy a new Rumble vIII amp - which ever one you can afford. Not only do they sound better than the one that died, you'll have a warranty with the new one.

    I use a Ampeg BA110v2 a little 40 watt 110 amp, I have even used at small gigs with my pasture maybe 20 people and it works great, has a built in overdrive called a scrambler and a 15 DB Button, and that little dude gets beat around a lot. Its a great amp I have had a long time. It also has an ear phone jack. New I paid a $175.00 for it but I see them sometimes on craigslist at a pretty low price. 51unv0qopWL._SY450_.jpg

    Rumble is the ticket. Those crates have no oooomph! (I had one).

    The Rumble I had is cooked. Looks like I’m gonna play the Crate.

    I have a Crate BX-15 Bass amp and its is completely reliable. I also have a Crate GX-15 Guitar amp and it is just as indestructible. I had a few contemporary Fender's and sadly they blew out. The ancient Fender Champ tube amp from the 70's that I have is still going though. Bottom line I would trust the Crate.
