General opinion of the Rumble 15 V3 is quite positive, with most users describing it as a great value practice amp. Many are happy with how easy it is to get good tone with its streamlined controls. It is also often commended for being light and portable, and for its vintage style appeal.


Given its low power rating and small 8″ speaker, don’t expect this amp to have enough power for loud jams. A few users recommend extending your budget by a bit to get its bigger sibling, the Rumble 25.
