    I love cardboard boxes as much as the next guy (or 4 year old child even lol) but I sure hope there's more than the box back there, or else this isn't much of a story :p

    As promised!

    I tried both the 200 and the 500. Liked them both!
    The 200 would do everything I currently need for the few times a year I need an amp, but the 500 is a lot more bang for the buck.

    I guess it's time to request a number!

    Otherwise it would be a NBD...

    new box day

  5. Hello both of you. Thank you for your input, it is very much appreciated.

    Unfortunately, there aren't any used Rumbles around here. I'm going to be buying new. But they are so inexpensive anyway...

    I also did a bunch of searches on this site and others...yes, I think the R40 is probably the better option. I see all the extra features plus the fact that it is slightly louder than the 25...it's probably going to be the one.

    Just need to get my hands on one!

    Have a great Sunday, guys!

    Any of y'all putting your 200 or 500 combos on an amp stand, and if so what are you using? I've been putting mine on a milk crate, but I'd like something I could angle.

    Yo, Maggie! I use the type of stand Volksy was asking about above for my R500c. Little cumbersome to transport, but SO worth it for stability and sound dispersion. Love it!

    I use this $50 Proline amp stand from GC for my Stage 800, which is nearly identical to the R200 in dimensions. (I know the same cover fits both. I've had an R200 on it, too, before I got my R800.)

    There's another Proline that's listed online for $42 that may be the same unit; but, the $50 unit is usually in stock in-store.

    Note that you can reverse the arms that hold the amp to have either a flatter or more tilted configuration. On a small stage, I give it more tilt so the amp is pointing toward my head. On larger stages, where it's sitting in the "backline", I go with the flatter config.

    That's an excellent alternative!

    I'm considering it, but I need something cheaper. Like a Rumble 112!

    I have the 25 that I use in the family room for couch noodling while watching TV and which I take with me when I’m on the road for business and want to practice in the hotel room. The 40 is the better value though. IMO, the 15 is a nonstarter.

    I like the 1-15 Rumble Cab as a stand for my R200C ;).

    I don't care that they're not the same width. And I ain't laying my 200c sideways (not sure how that would affect the cooling).

    This one goes on sale every so often for $15.00 at Musician's Friend. I use it to hold up my Rumble 200 or my Rumble 75. It works great!

    I bet that it would be easier and cheaper to find a used Rumble 210 than finding a Rumble 112.

    I have two R112’s and they weren’t easy to find or to find a good deal on.

    Just took my 100c out today for a gig at a winery. Played out on the patio. This is a small space, mellow background music kind of gig. I’ve really been enjoying the contour button. I have kind of overlooked it before; but for mellow, low volume, and acoustic stuff, the contour button takes some honk out of my p bass and makes for a sweet, warm sound.

    (Full disclosure: I also wanted to share the debut of my new Fender Jazz bass neck. I’m really becoming quite the Fender fanboy! :woot: )

    Someone on this forum made this one, and I thought, I can do this and I did, mine looks just like this...

    I made 2, one for the 40c and 1 for the 200c, works like a charm :D
