To me it’s nothing more than a toy!
I played through one at a friend's house recently. For low volume practicing, I think it's totally adequate and has a nice warm sound to it. I wouldn't use it for anything other than solo practice or playing along to recordings, though.
It is the best $99 new bass combo on the market, and it sounds surprisingly good! Plug in a good quality set of headphones and prepare to be amazed. I had one for a year to leave at my guitarist's house to use working up new tunes. I sold it after he died as I no longer needed it. A very handy and capable personal practice amp.
I would buy it for home practice if I needed one, yes.
I've used this combo playing upright with a jazz trio in a small bar. The band wasn't loud but the amp kept up and I was able to get a decent sound out of it.
I am very sorry for your loss @Linnin.
Thank you @BassmanPaul. Ace was a fellow lefty and we had a jazz duo for restaurant and winery gigs. He suffered from Hep C as a result of heroin addiction plus as an alcoholic contracted cirrhosis toward the end. Liver kaput and sudden kidney failure killed him a week shy of his 58th birthday. He was an amazingly talented and very jovial & likeable man. He is missed.
I like the Rumble 25 4X more than most folks.
Is that your stage rig???
No... my stage rig is four Rumble 25s stacked vertically. Better dispersion!
I like your Hofner bass
Love the aesthetics of these! I've seen B-stock ones on Amazon for $85.00 in the past.
I voted no, because I have r15, and an r40.
No disagreement on the quality of a r25.
How much is that? I like it
What 'that' are you asking about?
The rumble set up. How do you do that?
Rumble amps are great, but I voted no.
Even for just home practice I find an 8 inch speaker to sound anemic.
I would go for the 40 or higher in the Rumble amps.
I run the bass signal into a multi-effect, a Zoom B1on, which not only provides EQ, effects, amp and cab simulations, a drum machine, and a looper, it acts as a buffer with a stereo out. I built a little passive connector hub in a mini-pedal size aluminum enclosure. It consists of 3 stereo jacks wired in parallel. That's it. A stereo cable goes from the Zoom to one connecter hub jack, and from each of the other two stereo jacks, I run a stereo-to-mono-left- and-right cable to the inputs of each amp. All the cables and connector box parts cost about $30.
That's cool. Everybody has different circumstances. At home, one Rumble 25 works great for me, but sometimes, when I get in a crushing mood, I'll add a second one.
