    Hey all. Ill chime in here. UPS (and other shippers) charge an exorbitant amount for packing an item. Almost as much or more than shipping. I have shipped amps and basses and NEVER paid more than $60 for insured shipping (even had an item go to Toronto).

    I just tried this out with my R40 with speaker output and it did not produce any significant volume difference either with the bass or Aux In player.

    Oh - forgot - and in anticipation of this Rumble NCD, I ordered one of those $19 Fender covers for the 210 cab since they don't make em for the 112. Same width, same depth, just trimmed about 4 inches off the bottom and there ya go! :smug:

    Guys, I still can't decide whether to pick rumble 40 or 25 for my G&L L2500 tribute (5 strings). Can u please advise? I will mainly use it with headphone, since I lived in a small apartment. I tried 25, but with a cheaper 5 strings bass in the store (Cort GB75, I think). Will it be sounded significantly better too on 40, if playing it with the headphone? The price gap quite much in my country. But if it is significantly better, I may pick that 40. Sadly, there was no stock in the store I visited to test it by myself. I may order it online somewhere.

    If it's going to be mostly used with headphones, the 25 will sound the same as the 40... if you plan on using it without headphones the 40 will definitely sound a little better.

    The 25 is good, but get the 40. You’ll be glad you did.

    The 40 has the full Rumble EQ section. The 25 does not. When you do play through the amp, the 40 will handle the low B string a LOT better.

    I know it's easy to recommend that someone else spend the extra money, but in this case, you will never regret it. The 40 is an all-around excellent little amp that's giggable in small locations and will serve you well for a long time.

    If you haven't seen this review of small combos (posted earlier somewhere in this thread), check it out.

    The phrase "a few pages back" is useful. 'Course it might be a few hundred but why quibble over details.:smug:

    I didn't have Doc Brown's Delorean available, so I skipped the detail. :rolleyes:

    Thanks all, for the advise. Looks like rumble 40 still the winner here. I still need to find local store that have it to test the sound. Or.. Go wild n order it from local online store. Then I broke. LOL.

    The Rumble 15, 25 & 40 differ from each other by the contols, and tone flexibility, they have.

    The Rumble 15 has only 4 basic controls for Volume, Bass, Mid & Treble. It does have an Aux In and Phones output and that's all. It's the bare minimum stuff for a bargain basement price.

    The Rumble 25 has a couple of extras above the 15. In addition to the basic controls for Volume, Bass, Mid & Trebke, it has an Overdrive button and a Contour button for more tone voicing. When the Overdrive is on it adds distortion to the tone and increasing the Volume control increases the distortion. When the Contour is on it provides a mid-cut "fat" tone for various uses, including low volume practice, but there is no adjustment for it. You can use either, or both, buttons as you like. The only I/O is Aux In and Phones out.

    The Rumble 40 is the smallest Rumble amp to have the full controls as the larger, more expensive, Rumble amps, adding a Gain control, Vintage voicing button, Drive & Level controls for the Overdrive, replacing the Mid with Low Mid & High Mid controls, and a Master volume control. The Aux In and Phones out are moved to the back where there is also a Footswitch connection (footswitch not included) to turn the Overdrive on & off, and a balanced XLR Out with Ground Lift switch for connecting to a PA or recording system.

    I hope this overview can help shoppers decide on the model they want/need.
