  1. It does kinda look like Home Depot in here don't it. Like if they decide that we all had to live in sheet metal sheds.

    Yep, I have a Broughton HPF. Does a nice job with my 500c. I have it set somewhere around 60 to 70hz.

    I too felt that 500c starting sounded flabby from the open A down. The HPF cleaned that up nicely.

    Yep, mine's never off with any of my basses.
  4. Perfect! This is what I wanted to hear! Thanks!

  5. Which Broughton model HPF did you go with? I noticed they have a couple different models.

    Fellow Stage/Studio owners, what presets have you been digging and how has your experience been with making your own?

  8. I use the KGB800 preset or the Basic Showman as a starting point for most everything. I use the Motown preset for a couple songs, mostly Low Rider. I've really been digging the Ready Freddie preset I pulled down off the app. Think it's a Freddie Washington upload, maybe by him, maybe by Fender. Oh, and I like the Love of Money Preset for... well you guessed it. The Funk Envelope and Bootsy Funk presets are really squishy and mamma told me not to play my bass underwater so I'll probably make my own envelope filters. I did play around with the filter parameters a little.
    Haven't settled on a preset for slap yet but I don't get slappy with it except for if I'm playing Shakey Ground without a drummer present. Can't remember what I was using for Living in the Past by Tull but I think it was probably the Showman. The Shimmer bass preset is fun when you're showing the amp off.
    I'm sure there's lots of nice distortion for the overdrive junkies but I usually just scroll till the humming stops.

  9. I just ordered the $95 one. I will let you know how it works for me in a week or so.

    I probably haven't mentioned it (more than 99 times, or so) but, I really, really, really love the #9 "Deep Rumble" preset!!! It's got a real solid attack with a rich, creamy deepness that resonates with my soul! I also really like "Three Days", "Roundabout" and "Rubber Soul Fuzz", and most of the others, too. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to spend any time tweaking or makng my own presets yet. :whistle:

    I found that most of the presets that I just wanted to like, but couldn't fall in love with came alive just by changing the speaker cab and/or compression settings. But my favorite so far came from the Tone app downloads called "Alembic F-2B". This preset with my active bass can pull off anything from Jaco to dub just by fiddling with my bass.

    Question for you all,

    I was just at a music store and came across a Fender Rumble 200. I was planning on getting a 500 but this one was too good of a deal to pass up.

    Now that I’m at home, I’m having slight buyer’s remorse as I worry the 200 won’t be able to hold up in a loud band situation at a medium sized venue (without PA support). Its crazy loud here but its hard to tell without being in the actual situation.

    For all of you veterans of the Rumble 200, how has it held up for you all? Do you need the 15” extension cab in that sort of situation? Does the 200 even work in that situation?

    Thanks in advance!

  15. I ran into the same problem. I had to turn up the 200c too much with my band. It was barely loud enough with a loud band.
    I now use a peavey 210 cabinet with mine and I got another 200c without the head (essentially another 15) to try. I like the 210 cab with the 200c. The 210 with the 15 of the combo seems to be a bit fuller more to my ears. It is much louder with an extension cab because it allows the full 200 watts to be used.
    Get an extension cab, it will wake that sucker up.

    The 200c can really punch above its weight with an extension cab.

    If you Add a HPF to protect the speakers and remove the sub-sonic mud, you'll punch like a 300c and move up another class! :thumbsup:

    Which Fender Rumble cab makes the most sense with the 200?

    The obvious one is the 115 but it kills me that it isn’t matching dimensions.

    How is the Fender Rumble 210 cab with the 200?

  18. You will get a ton of different responses. It is all in your ear. I would have bought a rumble 210 cab if I would have found one at the time locally. I recommend trying to find the rumble stuff because it is lightweight. I like the cheap peavey sound with the combo, but it is heavy. My goal for this rig was lighter weight. The peavey blew that, but I like how it sounds. I would still like to find a rumble 210 to try with it. Try multiple cabs. I sometimes play my ampeg v4 412 cab with my rumble and I like it also. Just try to play a bunch of cabs with it.
  19. Thanks. Funny, that’s the same one I was going to order. Yes... PLEASE let me know your thoughts on how it works for you.
