Gearank Recommendation

The Rumble 500 earned a place on our recommended list for Combo Bass Amps from October 2021 until September 2022 when it was out-ranked by the Fender Rumble 200.


The Fender Rumble Series continues to be popular thanks to their combination of good sound quality, value and portability.

The Rumble 500 V3 is a 500 watt bass amp with two 10" speakers.

What separates it from similarly spec'ed amps is its voicing feature, which lets you choose between vintage (deep lows with vintage character similar to old bass amps), bright (trebly tone), and contour (low-end emphasized).

It also comes with 4-band EQ for further tone shaping, and it has a built-in overdrive switch for those who want to add more grit to their sound.

The projection of this 500W amp is loud enough for most gigs, but if it isn't enough, you can plug the amp straight to PA via the XLR line out.
