    Does anyone know how good the new Fender 100w bass amp is? I looked at one when I took my GK back to the shop. It's so light, lighter than my 200mb. It's cheap, too. But does it sound cheap on a gig?

    I have a Rumble 25 that I bought as a practice amp for electric bass, but I recently used it with my upright for a low-volume trad jazz gig and it worked like a charm. I've been thinking about picking up the Rumble 40 or 100.

    It's not the most flexible EQ, but the basic sound is good and the 1 MegOhm input impedance works well with piezo pickups.

    Thanks, Steve.
    You threw me at first with the "Rumble" moniker. The sales/tech guy just showed me three new amps, a 40w, a 100w ($299) and I believe a 200w which is too big for me. I only saw "Fender" on them, no "Rumble", but I didn't look at the backs of the amps. He suggested the 100 for upright.
    I feel much better now, knowing that I have a alternate choice if my GK 200mb doesn't get fixed.
