I have the Rumble 500 combo, but with a Bassman 115, and love that stack. But, yeah, the full 500 watts is usually overkill in my country cover band, mostly due to FOH. I half-jokingly told the BL he could leave me out of the board! He didn't even look up and mumbled, "That's not gonna happen." I unplug the extension cab so I can turn the combo up a bit. (sigh) But, the stack still looks great!
