    Don't feel like The Lone Ranger there, Tonto. If Fender has announced plans for a Rumble Stage 800 head, then we've all missed it.

    BUT.... we can drop hints! (hint, hint)

    No plans for a head at this time. That was one of my first questions, too.

    I use a 410v3 with a rumble 500. It’s a great compact and relatively light cab

    It looks awesome too. I've been using an Ampeg 210he but I need some more volume/head room. And I'd rather have one cab than two 210's

    The 200 is a lot better for a lot of situations. I have no doubt and I own both the 100 and 200. If I am playing in a lower volume situation, I always take the 100. Lightweight, and it sounds great. The 200 is for any time I am playing a little louder or if I want the extra air movement the 15 inch speaker delivers into a room. For me, the 200 would be better in most situations, but the 100 still gets used a lot because I play with unplugged guitars sometimes. The 100 is plenty loud, but I like the 200 better.

    Just caught the 15% off eBAy sale tonight and saved $50 on a new Rumble 100.
    I want to try the lightweight and ease of use model as maybe I'll play out more at smaller gigs or jams with some monster local players.
    I figure that I can always sell this and move up without loosing too much cash.

    I'm not so sure any of the Rumble combos would be right for my normal live gigs.
    I've been spoiled by a GB NeoX 2x12 cabinet and a GK Fusion 800; about 55 lbs and a 1 trip load in with a bass.

    I had a tube Bassman 30 that was cool but not cool enough.

    I just couldn't justify an extra 100 watts and 15 vs. a 12 with a 63% weight increase.
    Honestly, I have't found a combo (including these incredible amps) that I would use instead of my main rig.
    The weight, volume, and tone of the 100 is a perfect combination (for me) for quieter work.

    Whatever works for you. The 200c replaced a Kasino of unknown weight in an attempt to lessen damage to my back,shoulders,knees.....you get the picture.And it's enough for anything I do or I'll put it in the P.A.:D

    Also, I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to gear: I got the Kasino in '70,the Bassman25 in'00,a Peavey keyboard amp(which I also used for bass)in'75+/-,just got a R40 for smaller venues,etc. I know I wouldn't get anything for any of the old sh^t AND I live alone so no one bitches about my gear,so I hang on to it.:):help:

    I have a GK MB212-ii combo and a Rumble 500 head and 210 cab(not combo). The GK is a bit lighter and as a combo is one less item to unload. However i simply prefer the Fender's tone in most situations, especially with a P bass...I use my Rumble rig about 75% of the time.

    Hi randini and randallphish..yep I left a review but i'm from South Australia (SA) as Rodl from Tassie said..Thanks Rod..SA - South Africa and SA - South Australia easily mixed up..lolll.
    I like the material they (TUKI) use. Its more a heavier cotton type fabric with a 1/2" foam layer in between front and back of the cover. I love the 2 covers as they are well padded to protect the 500 Combo plus the 115 cab but the only drawback I have found is when they are off and not easy to fold. I "stand" them behind my cabs out of sight and out of the way when gigging. When at home there is no issue as they are kept on the cabs. I opted for the pocket on the front and in hindsight yes I would have preferred it either on the back or on the side..Tuki give all those options...front side or back...or none at all. BTW the other company that Randall enquired about is their sister company and run by the same people. Very good to deal with too. All amp/cab models have the handle openings well catered for with a dust flap/handle protector included..really well made covers from either company..read on. I have NO AFFILIATION BTW.
    I also have 1 cover made by the other company (Amplifier Covers or Custom Amp Covers) are the same company as TUKI if you check the address you will find them all at the same place in Michigan US.
    The Custom Amp Cover I have is for my Fender Rumble 75...it also is very good but is made of your standard thich black vinyl and folds easily when not used. I also have a TUKI cover for that little 75 amp too.
    If you want flexible foldable thick vinyl covers go for the Amplifier Covers or Custom Amp Covers. If you want more protection get the TUKIS and choose if you want zippered or velcroed and Pocketed or not...lots of options. They are very easy people to get along with and can even send you a small sample of the TUKI covering I believe if you wish to see what its like. As I said I prefer theirs for the padded thickness of them but the choice of type is yours..and the companies are basically owned by the same people. Hope that helps. Good luck.

    This is the cover from Custom Amp Covers for my Fender Rumble 75 Tilt Back Design Amp
    It is a heavy black vinyl type that they make.

  19. The difference between a 15 and two 10's IMO. Personally i prefer the punchiness of the two 10's over the single 15 but that's just my personal opinion. As always YMMV and all that crap.

    Being"vintage"myself, it took me a long time to accept anything smaller than 12" for bass plus, for what I normally do, the 15 works better. Ye olde personal preference thing.:)
