    i suck at bass but will never give up
    I'll bet the 4 ohm speaker would cost as much as a good used 8ohm Rumble 115 cab.

    Thanks for the reply David. Looks like this is about my best option, although I've emailed Fender about it as well.
    I can make a new preset or copy an existing, add the desired effect and save it in a Set List. I can then use the footswitch to navigate. It's cumbersome and I was certainly hoping for the ability to add or drop effects on the fly. I'll keep working on it and if I find a better solution I'll post results.

    Hello everyone. Long time lurker. First time poster. A few weeks ago, I picked up a Rumble 200 combo at a local used music shop. I paid $200 USD. After a couple weeks of searching I found a matching 115 cabinet on CL for $125. That's $325 total for a new (and much lighter rig). I couldn't be happier with it. IMG-1594.JPG

    Hey, Cardy! Don't beat yourself up. There's a lot to learn about these amps and their interaction with the footswitch. And, frankly, my old noggin can't keep all that stuff memorized. (That's why it took me a while to answer. I hadda look it up!)

    But, I know where to find the online Owner's Manual on the Rumble Club Wiki Page (linked in my signature) to be able to find out stuff. But, even then, I sometimes think it's called something else than what the manual calls it. Or, I've got a particular expectation of how to do it, but they actually do it a different way. RTFM is my motto. Read The Full Manual. ;) I don't just read the Getting Started Guide and think I can figure the rest of it out.

    Sounds to me like you want to use Effects Mode on your footswitch to turn on-or-off a particular effect. You just have to make sure that particular effect is one of the first 3 in that particular preset. See if this excerpt from page 49 of the manual doesn't help. :)

    Right, Dave! For experimenting purposes it's always best to play around with an extra copy of a preset, instead of the original preset in question, which might be the only copy. And, if you mess up the original, or only copy, you might have to reset the amp to factory settings to get it back! :(

    Yep, sounds like the Effects Mode is what you're looking for. Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

    There is also the Fender TONE APP SUPPORT Webpage for help with these complex amps and footswitches. And, of course, your friendly neighborhood Rumble Club is always here for encouragement and well intended help. :thumbsup:

    Also, please let us know what you hear back from Fender Customer Support about this.

    Thank you G Dog! I use the rumble wiki and actually have the full manual saved on my phone and my PC and have read that portion a few times but it wasn't sinking in that I had to add the effect to the preset and then be able to use effects mode to turn on/off. I was seeing "effects mode" as separate or running in addition to the preset. I kept going into effects mode and not finding any effects. Then I'd go to the menu and try to find some tab that said effects or assigning effects.
    I get it now and I'm really excited to play when I get home, maybe I'll catch a case of the 24 hr flu!....cough, cough!
    It might have made sense sooner if I had used a preset that actually has effect assigned already but I was just trying to add a little sweeping flanger for the Doobies "Listen to the Music" and getting frustrated.
    Thanks a bunch!

    You're welcome, Cards. I'm glad that actually helped. I know what you mean about things not sinking in. My preconceived notions sometimes keep me from seeing the obvious. And even when Cap'n Obvious tells me the right thing I still don't get it. :bored:

    Then, one day, usually months later, after I've forgotten all about whatever it was, I re-read something looking for something else and -Click!- "Hey, that ain't what I'm looking for now, but I was looking for that a few months ago!" :woot:

    Oh, and Get Well Soon! Better stay home a few days. You don't wanna be spreadin' that to your co-workers! Your boss will thank you for it. ;)

  11. Anyone gigged with the combination of the Rumble 115 and 410 cab along with the 500 head? Just wondering how it sounds and how much air it pushes. I have this setup available to me but I have never used the 115 and 410 together.

    Not really answering your question but... Flea used to use paired 4x10s and 1x15s. GK of course.

    There were posts about that a buncha pages back. The consensus was to put the 115 on top of the 410.

  14. Thanks GP... yeah, I kind of remember those discussions, just not sure of actual accounts of using that setup live were discussed. I played through mine (in my house) and really liked what I heard. Maybe I'll take it to a band rehearsal and see how powerful it really is... for a brief moment, of course.

    IIRC, there were posts about mixing several different Rumble cabs, with the consensus being that they are all engineered to work well together. That pretty much simplifies things!
