Me too - a 15, a 40, and a 500c/210 cab. What’s wrong with us?
Nothing! We're all perfectly sane. It's all those other folks that are total whack jobs.
Nothing that I know of. My 25 is bedroom practice, the 100 is for band practice and small venues, and the 500c + 2x10 are for regular gigs. Some might want to leave the extension home for smaller gigs, but I like what it does for the overall sound. I also discovered it has a volume control which I have learned how to use.
I love the look of these and the pickup location. Anyway of describing the sound compared with a P Bass.
Heavier! The big humbucker up there is wound really hot and as it's right up near the fb...it's very bassy. Great if you're using tube amps and you wanna overdrive em. ..great for a big round tone. . Not great for a biting cut thru tone. Neck is very comfy..to me. And it's not a heavy bass..weight wise.
Happy Fender Friday!
Nice, is that the new Adam Clayton sig jazz bass, with a Bassman 800 stack?
Wow. That sure is, uh... sparkly.
Hmmmm. Oddly enough, I am back to playing through my Fender Rumble 500, with my Ibanez.... Looks like my Fender (Squier) and Fender like basses have picked up some gremlins...
The Squier Jazz seems to have lost the ground wire for the bridge pickup, just need to re solder it, and the SXes all need the shielding treatment... Not sure when I am going to get with the program though I am starting to enjoy the sound of that old Ibby through the Rumble stack...
I guess Adam Clayton is a sparkly kind of guy. Sure is nice to see something with bright color. So tired of the drab gothic blacks and their pedantic drones.
Dig those crazy inlays, man.....
Abalone! Abalone! Crazy, Man, Crazy!
They's made of a baloney?!?
Aaaa-balone, you’re just being shellfish.
Your Obedient Servant,
This is just a real-life Rumble observation: Although the 100 and 200 have completely different personalities on a stage, when you use the line out, they are pretty much identical in the PA. I did an experiment yesterday with them.
Also, people have mentioned that the line out volume goes up as you turn up the amps volume. Well, it does, but not as much as you might think. I had it on the input-meter screen of my mixer and it was almost imperceptible when I raised the amp's volume. If you need to turn up your amp on stage a little, the soundman might not even notice.
I used the line out on my Rumble 500 head many times at gigs, it's never been an issue and it sounds good......however I'm not one to fiddle with amp volume once it's set.
I've been thinking of getting a rumble 500 head, but the lack of speakon is a huge turnoff.
Anybody know if there's going to be an update for 2018? Or a rumble 800?
