  1. Do these settings work well with basses other than J basses? AKA, P basses? Not sure what you have in your bass arsenal.

    Yeah I was scratching my chin... that’s a super aggressive EQ for playing full band volume.

    To @SRVoodoo :
    Also as far as neighbors go, if you live in an apartment, townhome, or duplex that shares a structure, you may not realize just how much bass frequencies carry through drywall and other building materials. It’s possible that the bass sounds louder in their home then it does in yours.

    oh I'm sorry I missed your post. I'm playing an '06 MiJ Geddy Lee & once in a while my old mim p-bass.
    my settings might be strange but oddly enough it works out.

    By the way, just for the record, I wasn’t saying that your settings look inherently bad… Just that they might be a little “too good“ at full band volume level through a combo amp. Sometimes what sounds like crap on its own will actually sound great in a band mix and help you cut through.

    exactly. once the drums & guitar come blaring in the frequency plays nice with eachother....and I have the horn ON. take that. lol
  7. Interesting. When I play my P through the Rumble, I have to tweak the EQ a bit to get a good, clear tone.

    I forgot to mention that I ran my Farfisa MINI Compact through the NORMAL channel. I was Geddy before he was. Except for the talent level. Me being WAY behind! 96 Tears, anyone?

    We played an outdoor gig on Monday, with one amplified acoustic guitar and two electric guitars. My Jazz bass and my R100 (with the Eminence 2012 speaker) did just fine. It's on the ground just out of sight on the right. It was not run through the PA.

    Please be sure to post when and where you’ll be playing. I’m close to you and would like to come out for a listen.

    Hey !

    So i wanted a 15" speaker with a low budget and quickly ended up with the Harley Benton. But blinded by the attractive price, i overlooked the fact that the tweeter can't be turned off... and i'm a big fuzz user. So got to take it back.

    So now i'm going for an Ampeg PF or a Fender Rumble speaker.

    I know that the Ampeg takes fuzz very well but what about the Rumble ?

    A LPF allows you to dial in(or out) the high end of any system.

    Here I am onstage last Saturday, playing some bluegrass at a big folk festival with my Rumble 500 v3 head.
    (My towering ;) rig, from the bottom up: GK Neo 112ii cab, Rumble head, GK MB200 (backup amp), tuner.)
    The amp was set utterly flat. Even so, I used a DI box, so that the front of house guy could get the pre-Rumble signal. I couldn't have been happier with the tone!
    Also: Fender Jazz Bass (MIM) with 5-year-old Chromes. Neck pickup only.

    Thanks for the advice but i really don't want another pedal on my board and most of all, HPF and LPF never did the work for me.

    All i want to know is how Rumble speakers take dirt. Do they sound well with a warm and full sound or do they sound neutral and blank ?

    Well, I may be joining the Rumble Club very soon!

    I mainly play at church, through the FOH system, and don't need an amp there.

    The last few years, I've played elsewhere, needing an amp, about once a year. Most of these have been with a choir I sing with, and I've been able to borrow a system from a co-worker, and it's worked out fine.

    Except it's heavy. Randall RB 125 ES Amplifier (15-20 lbs, just guessing), GK Backline 210BLX Speaker Cabinet (60 lbs).

    Next month I'm playing with the choir again, only not a normal concert. It's a Choir Festival, Thursday evening, Friday evening, and all day Saturday.

    We sing Saturday morning. Each choir has a 20 minute slot. Get on stage, sing, offstage, and the next choir is waiting to go on at the moment you start to leave the stage. I'll have approximately 3.5 seconds to setup and tear down. No FOH, just whatever I bring for an amp.

    Heavy ain't gonna cut it. I need to carry this onstage while we are walking on to sing, plug it in, sing, play on the last song we do, unplug, and walk off.

    I'm going to try out the Rumble 200 and Rumble 500 both this weekend. The 200 will be enough for anything I've needed, but for only $100 more the 500 gives me overhead in case I need more in the future. You know, just thinking ahead :).

    Expect to see an official request to join the club Saturday or Sunday.
