    Has anyone tried to modify a Fender Rumble amp to remove the scoop? I can't adjust it flat with the knobs...

  2. hmmm the new ones have a scoop (shape) button but I hear you that it's inherent tone is already scooped...

    Seems like a starange place to have it scooped considering it is a low powered amp... you'd think you'd be able to get more useable volume for gigging from it if it was set flat, but I guess how it sounds on the showroom floor is what sells it unfortunately.

  4. They're already scooped by themselves, aren't they?

    Yes. When I used one for about a year, I had to constantly have the midrange controls cranked up obnoxiously far, and the treble cut to have a usable sound live. Now I'm using Ampeg and Gallien Krueger... things are better. Although I should note that the Fenders are not bad amps for what they are. :smug:
     
  6. Meh, that's why they're so punchy. I have both the Lo and the Hi mid as cranked as I can. Now it's quite nice. I finally cut trough!

    sounds ok on my Jazz but kinda ruins my P bass sound that I like.

    looks to me like if you leave the bass and hi-mid knobs at noon, crank the lo-mid and roll off the treble, you'll get close to flat.
    Can anyone confirm this?


    (yeah, it's a zombie thread)
