Fender Rumble series amps are the easy way to get great bass tone in a single, lightweight package. This smartly designed Class D solid-state head powers a pair of high-efficiency 10” speakers, giving you an all-in-one bass amp that won’t break your back.
The Rumble 500 is powerful but compact, delivering tight, penetrating bass tone from two special design 10” speakers. With 350 watts (500 with extension cabinet) from just over 35 lbs., this overachiever can handle an amazing range of gigs: plenty of volume, but with a built-in XLR line out, you can go directly into the mixer—you don’t have to fill the whole room from the stage. Just use the amp as an onstage monitor and let the PA do the heavy lifting. It’s even a great practice amp, with its 1/8” headphone out.
All Rumble series amps feature 4-band EQ plus 3 tone-shaping switches for plenty of tonal range. Choose Bright for extra high end; Contour for extra lows; or Vintage for classic Fender bass tone and balance. There’s also an Overdrive section (with optional footswitch) for additional edge and more contemporary drive.
Big sound, light weight and low cost, the Rumble 500 has all the power and tone you need to deliver great-sounding bass for any gig.
Why We Like Fender Rumble Series Bass Amps
Over the past 60+ years, Fender has marketed a lot of products for bass players—no company has deeper electric bass roots—and the Fender amps that have stayed within range of the original Bassman designs of the 50s-60s have been consistent performers through every era. Put simply, Fender knows how to do bass.
While we love heavy-duty, window-rattling bass rigs, the new Rumble series offers plenty of serious low end and great Fender sound in convenient, lightweight, cost-efficient packages. For clubs, churches, sessions, rehearsals—anywhere you don’t need an arena-sized rig (and roadies)—the Rumble series is hard to beat.
