I have to say color me impressed
my old Peavey 4x10 decided it was going to give the ghost up Wed night last week and I was left to play through 1 working speaker out of 4, and since this cab was 30 years old , time for a new one. Not having a lot of cash to spend and a gig coming up this weekend I pulled the trigger on a Fender rumble 4x10, and am I glad I did.
1)Weight, this bad boy has to be about half the weight of my old Peavey and my back is happier for it
2) Switchable horn built in , with options off full power/-6Db/or fully off, a lot of our originals I wrote distorted bass lines for parts of and Kicking into my fuzzface REALLY cuts through the mix of two guitars
3) Tone, Crystal clear boomy lows (which myself and the rest of the band like) Drummer had no problem hearing me at stage volume, clear highs, great resonance, got a lot of compliments on my sound
4)price, at $299 CDN I do not think I could have found better value new, I was not really interested in used as 4x10 rarely come up for sale in my area , most are the 8x10 fridges and well overpriced IMO for 15- 20 year old well used cabinets
Used it with with my TC BH250 head ,Fuzzface stomp box and GMR Classic 5 Bass to great results, very very happy with the purchase!!!!!!
Thanks for the report! Nothing better than a gear purchase that exceeds expectations!!!!
I have the 410 and 150 head an I am blown away ! I've had just about everything made and this rig is up there with markbass , swr , ampeg , etc .
I used to have a Peavey 210. AT first I loved the sound but quickly discovered they were using trickery to impress people. The cabinet had a big built-in midrange notch. This gave it a full / rich sound with clear highs but in a band setting it was quickly buried.
I modified the crossover to let the full range go through to the woofer and man, what a difference.
If the 410 was built the same way, then part of what you're hearing might be all those midrange tones you've been missing all these years.
I bought my daughter a Rumble practice amp. When I went to the store to purchase it, I was surprised by how good and bassy it sounded for such a small critter. Seems like the Rumble line is very budget-friendly, and also has headroom for players to grow with from bedroom gear to their first stages, into the intermediate requirements of gigging musicians.
