    Sure... the FX Send will have all the voicing from the preamp.

    There is also 4 cable method to go in front and use the effects send and return.

    The Helix and other multis can be setup so you can assign some effects in front of the amp and others in the effects loop.

    I have little to add to what my Rumble Club brethren have already stated. :)

  8. So before I post a photo and ask for a number...I must ask a question about fan noise on the Rumble 200. Because I never heard a fan on the 500 and I can hear this one. It's not at a level where it's problematic in terms of sound (I don't think), but it's a little worrisome to me.

    I don’t recall ever hearing a fan on my 200c when I had it.

    Then again, I always had the volume up decently loud to where I wouldn’t have been able to hear one anyway.

    Attention Rumble Stage and Studio fans:

    Rumble Stage 800 owner @Droopy_TX has taken up a labor of love and expanded on the written Presets List to include ALL the parameters for all the stock presets in a user friendly spreadsheet and in easily referenced PDF files!

    The files are in a Dropbox folder linked on the Rumble Club Wiki page in the Tone App Support section. And here are the Usage Notes for these files:

    The Fender Rumble Club is introducing a tool to capture locally (i.e. outside of the amp storage and Fender Tone Cloud) the parameters of presets created on the Fender Studio 40 or Rumble Stage 800.

    The tool is essentially a standardized template created in a MS-Excel compatible spreadsheet. The template provides a listing of the parameters for each amp model and effects module for quick and easy transcription. To illustrate its use, a complete listing of all current stock presets created using to template has been included.

    The current version of the template spreadsheet, the stock presets spreadsheet, and PDFs illustrating the spreadsheet content is stored in the following Dropbox folder:
    Dropbox - FENDER_RUMBLE - Simplify your life

    The Dropbox folder currently contains these four (4) files:

    The main spreadsheet containing the "preset builder template".

    The spreadsheet containing all of the Studio 40/Stage 800 stock presets documented using the "preset builder template".


    PDF file showing the contents of the "preset builder template" spreadsheet.


    PDF file showing the contents of the stock preset spreadsheet.

    The instructions for using the "preset builder template" spreadsheet are simple:
    • Create a preset on the Rumble 40 or 800 as normal, using either the Tone App or the amp front panel.
    • Open the RUMBLE PRESET TEMPLATE (STUDIO 40_STAGE 800).xlsx file in a compatible spreadsheet application (e.g. MS-Excel, Apple Numbers, Google Sheets, OpenOffice Calc).
    • Duplicate the ‘Preset Template’ worksheet to create a new worksheet in which to document a new preset.
    In the new worksheet:
    • Name the new preset, and indicate the preset slot number, if desired.
    NOTE: Each amp and effect module uses 2 spreadsheet rows to contain the parameter label, and a field for its value.
    • For each module in your, move or copy the 2-row entry for the amp and each effect module into the the appropriate position in the MODULE section (PRE-FX, AMP, POST-FX) to represent your preset’s signal path. If use more than one instance of the same effect, simply duplicate any entries as needed.
    • Once you have populated all modules in your signal path into the MODULE section, you can either delete the rows for the unused modules for a clean look, or leave them there if you think you might change the preset.
    • Walk through each of the parameters using either the Tone App or the front panel on the amp, and manually transcribe the values of each field to the template.
    • Once you done entering the parameter values, save your work.
    NOTE: The order of the fields in the template is based on the order in which they appear in the Tone App since most people will be using the app. However, the parameter order varies between the app and the amp’s front panel. Also, some screen variances have been noted between the iOS and Android app versions. Be careful when transcribing the data. If you are not seeing some of fields in the app, be sure to check to see if you need to scroll the screen. If you are still not seeing some of the data in the app, you can always get to the parameters from the amp’s front panel.

    Rumble On!

    Curious how the 800HD fits in to the class and ICE/SMPS amplifier scheme... I’ll bet it’s been discussed but can’t find it immediately. Thanks for pointing it out if you know.

    Best hundred dollar amp on the market IMO. Gets plenty loud, but Not sure I’d play out with it.

  14. I do an open mic night regularly where the stage amp is a Rumble 40 (I think). Full bands with drums. It is not loud enough for that situation so it's hard for me to imagine that a 25 would be (and this might even be a 25. Not sure). Big stage, LOUD stage, and it just doesn't cut through.

    OTOH I am playing with my new 200 and...I think I really like it! I think I like it way better than the 500 although that may just be me wanting to like it way better than the 500 lol! But it just has a very satisfying thump and clarity to it. And I don't need a dolly to schlep it out to my car -- que milagro!

    The fan is less noisy today. I can barely hear it now. About the only thing I can come up with is that this amp sat in a house for a couple of years and was apparently never played (the seller told me this and I believe her. It's spotless). Maybe it just needed to blow the dust off or something.

    Thanks, chupa, but it's all @Droopy_TX on this one. A technical Herculean effort. @Gravedigger Dav and I offered encouragement and support when consulted. But Droop had the vision and energy to start it, and then push it above and beyond to the current fully informational and usable state.

    Thank you, @Droopy_TX !

    A follow-up to my post about the 500 head cutting out when I turned on the overdrive...
    Well, as G-Dog suggested, I had both overdrive knobs all the way down.
    The amp is fine.
    The repair guy is disappointed.
    I'm an idiot. (But I did save money, thanks to G-Dog!)

    Whew! :jawdrop: Well, thanks, dougie, for confirming that "mute switch" tip! Sorry you had to get the repairman's hopes up, but glad it worked out for you!!

    Thanks go to @bassliner50 for posting this idea to the Returned My Rumble 40 thread!

    PS: I can't believe this "trick" has been available for 5 years and is just now coming to light!? So I've added it to the Rumble Talks section of the Rumble Club Wiki page.

    Don’t mean to hijack ongoing discussions, but I resolved an issue I was having with my 500 combo. Top 10” speaker began producing a noticeable buzz that resonated through the baffle. Particularly low C and D#. Tightening or loosening screws on speaker and throughout combo did not help the issue. Was considering adding acoustic foam to the back of the baffle. As an experiment I laid thin strips of loop velcro (not hook!) between each of the speaker screw holes and the speaker cutout. I then laid the speaker back in, with speaker now laying flat on the velcro strips and screwed speaker back in. It worked! Can hear no more resonant hum, and deep notes feel tight and solid. Reading previous posts about this centered on defective speaker and/or rattle coming from other parts of the room, etc. In my case speaker was creating resonant buzz through a weaker part of the combo. Velcro strips eliminated most if not all of the resonance. Hope this helps others. Cheers,
  20. *ahem* Here is my Rumble 200. May I have a number please?
