    Mine comes tomorrow afternoon from Sweetwater. :bassist: I hope they have the black corners like the combo amp.

  2. They're quite clearly chrome in the photos, but I would like to be able to buy some black corners.

    Looks like you could be receiving one or the other...hopefully its this one:

    Fender Rumble 210 2x10" 700-Watt Bass Cabinet - Black Grille

    Apparently Fender is having difficulty with coordination ;).

    Sweetwater photos show the black corners. Fingers crossed!

    In addition to this, I cannot understand why they mismatch Combo and Cabinet sizes as well as grill cloth orientation. Although I have ordered a $10 logo so my Combo 200 and 1-15 Cabinet match and am prepared to turn my Combo on it's side, I am tempted to remove both logos and give them no advertising at all.

    Their products are good but their implementation and design are the :poop:'s IMHO.

    ??? Did you receive mismatched grille cloth orientations??? I've never seen that, other than when I lay my R500c on it's side on my BM115 cab.

    Have you got a photo? Just curious. :whistle:

    Hey, @G-Dog, here is what I meant. In order to get the 200 Combo and 1-15 Cab to line up closely, I had to put the Combo on it's side, the logos are not the same and the grill cloth between the two are not aligned the same way. This has also been documented in the Rumble Wiki pages. If the Combo 500 with the 2-10 Cab can match, why can't the Combo 200 and 1-15, both in size and orientation?

    Those photos are inaccurate. The corners on the Stage 800 and matching 210 are definitely black.

    The Rumble doesn't need a clipping light. It has built in compression and it will never clip.
    Different basses need different EQ requirements. The settings for my P Select are very different form those for my SB-2T. Both are passive. As with many other amps, you needn't worry about someone using your rig damaging it electronically; however, never let them put a beer on top of it.

    There is a simple reason for this - the 115 is not primarily meant to line up with the 200 combo, but rather with the Bassman series, probably to make a more affordable Bassman rig. They even matched the logo style of the Bassman amps for a while. Of course they could have made the 115 to match the 200c - they just decided to go another way.

    I suspect that Fender thought users of the 200c would mainly use the combo on its own, or if they did use an extension cab, it would be the now discontinued 112, which did line up. For those who required more volume and power, there would be the 500c/210 combination, or indeed a 500 or 200 head coupled with two 115s.

    Sure but why not fix it for the Stage?

    Ok, I see. I thought you meant the grille orientation was mismatched in the normal upright positions which, obviously, is not the case. Yes, my OCD has me considering making a horizontal grille for my R500c but, for whatever reason, "I haven't got a round tuit."

    As to why the Rumble 115 cab is wider than the R200c I can only speculate that the extra volume was needed for the best tuning. And, perhaps, the smaller volume for the combo was justified by manufacturing efficiencies. But, of course, those two reasons are diametrically opposed; or either could be applied to both. So, what do I know? Perhaps @tombowlus has dicussed this with Fender and I missed it?

    I usually like your logic, Jakob, but I don't follow this one so much. The Rumble 115 cab intended for the Bassman heads? Hmmm... The 115 is one of the lower power rated Rumble cabs, but the lower power Bassman heads, the 100T and Super, are 1.5" wider than the Rumble 115 cab: also not good for OCD! And, although the Bassman 500 or 800 head widths are just 0.3" less than the 115 cab width, their power ratings put them a bit on the high side of Fender's usually conservative recommendations for use with a single cab.

    But, yes, the blackface logos on many 115 cabs do support your theory. And I have no better explanation for the existence of the 112 cab than yours. So, again, what do I know?

    :rolleyes:

    Sometimes it's just as important to know what one doesn't know.:bag:

    I am guessing that Sweetwater didn't have a Stage 2-10 in stock at picture time, so they thought switching the grille with a black one on a Rumble 2-10 would suffice :roflmao::rollno:.

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but... that's never stopped me before. :help:
    Why even have a gain control at all, if it's impossible to cause clipping with your input level? Is the gain control on the Rumbles there only to control the "sensitivity" of the overdrive?
