    Welcome to the club, they'll send you a number. I'm a proud LT25 owner (and 100 too)...Sometimes I plug the headphone output of my 25 into the return on my 100 and get the fun of the 25 effects with the power amp of the 100...love the 25 by itself too. Congrats....

    Well, 'nuther gig tomorrow. Local restaurant in Hobe Sound, FL. 9AM!-12. Aacck! 67TBird>R100. Been using a phaser lately just for gits and shiggles. Guitar, drums, me, and a sax man the drummer knows will be sitting in. S'posed to be quite the pro. Little bit of dinner(breakfast?)music, some R&R, and ?. I'll prolly wake up around the middle of the 2nd set. My voice oughta be in real fine form at that hour.

    Thank You @G-Dog for #1300. My Rumble 25 will make the club proud. I recently purchased my 5th bass. My first 4 are all passive four strings. So, I plug in with a SansAmp Tech 21 to hone the brightness. My new bass though is a completely different story. It’s a Schecter Stiletto Stealth-4 (active). I plugged in clean to the Rumble and inside of 5 minutes easily found great agreeable tone. Once again, Fenders quality and ease of use just makes me smile. Sometime down the road another FENDER will be sitting right next to it.

    So, y'all gonna call yourselves...

  7. Yesterday I added a Fender Rumble 100 to my amp collection. today I put all my amps, other than my little pocket amp, together for a picture.
    #1 Joyo 10watt battery/electric bass amp
    #2 Fender Rumble 15 bass amp (about 10 years old)
    #3 New Fender Rumble 100 bass amp
    #4 Acoustic B25C bass amp 25watt
    #5 California 10watt guitar amp... cheap with buzz
    #6 Rogue 15watt guitar amp ... Sold to me with my Rogue bass by Guitar Center... it is not a bass amp and works well as a guitar amp but not with the low tones of a bass.

    Following up on my original post on boosting my Rumble 40 for practices using the DI to the PA. Tested it yesterday - it's not going make the cut. We practice with a minimum PA setup, since we have all haul everything to the practice space. Basically the PA and a pair of 12" Yamaha wedge monitors. Adding the Rumble to it will muddy up the vocals.
    My goal was to get away from hauling my BA-115 to practice, the Rumble 40 is so portable. Just not enough power to keep up with the full band. I'm definitely considering upgrading and am on the fence between the Rumble 100 (1x12") and the new Peavey 112 Max (200w). Price points are within $50. Anyone had a chance to compare with the Peavey being a new model. If it helps my main bass is Fender P-Bass.

    Granted this is the Rumble club... ;)

    So cal
    Gets a 200c and do not look back! Lol IMHO
  11. Hi people!!! I have a Rumble Studio 40 for home practicing and the amp is great, every day I finish playing with the effects and different combinations, it’s insane. And the amp for a low wattage it sounds amazing, the cab simulations works very well. But I have a question for anyone that owns the same amp, a thing that bugs me ultimately.

    Some made presets that I use more than others and apply some modifications and saves are highlighted in yellow color instead of blue. Normally when you save or the other presets are in blue, or in red if you modified and not saved them, but some of them are in yellow even if I save the last modify.

    Is this something bad?

    I assume this is a silly question because the amp and the presets works without problem but I want to know the reason of that.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    That has to do with it being in your favorites set list.

    Attention: Rumble Club Wiki Edit Alert!

    Thank you, @Droopy_TX, for sharing that info! Droo, your explanation of the Pitch Shifter effect on the Stage & Studio amps to detune, or drop tune, has been linked on the Rumble Club Wiki page near the middle of the Tone App Support section, at the end of the Droopy_TX Preset Experience sub-section. This is a terrific example of helping each other get the most put of these super-versatile bass modeling amps.

    Thanks, Droo, for your sharing, and you too, @Gsnorgathon, for first confirming that this effect can do this job. :thumbsup:

    You're absolutely right, Daxy! Thanks! This question was even asked a few months ago in the Rumble LT25, Studio 40 & Stage 800 sub-thread of The Club by none other than the certifiedTM Rumble genius, @JakobT!

    Peter, you should post a pic of your Rumble here in the overall Fender Rumble Club and get a free membership number. Then go to the LT25, Studio &Stage sub-thread to discuss these great, but extremely versatile, bass modeling amps. ;)

  15. Thanks a lot for the link to the thread G-Dog!!! Solve my doubt. I’m gonna post the pic of my Rumble Studio 40! Great amp indeed, this little bastard never stop to impress me every day I use it.
  16. My buddy bought a used Rumble 100 about 6 months back. I borrowed it for for a while and didn't care for the boomy sound it had. Since then he's replaced the stock speaker with an EMI Beta-12A and put some stuffin' in the cabinet to damp the sound a bit and it sounds pretty decent now.

    I'm borrowing it again to compare to my newly acquired Rumble 40. In fact, I think I like it better than my 40 as it seems to be smoother sounding. The stock driver in the 40 has a bit of edginess to it.

    Yeah, Morby, the Beta is mentioned frequently in the 100 thread of the Rumble Speaker Replacements sub-section of the Rumble Club Wiki page. You might be interested in Astrosonic's first R40 speaker replacement thread there. A cheap, easy and reversible first step would be just putting a little polyfil in the ports, or behind the speaker. Good luck!

    First, be sure your Rumble is out of warranty before doing any non-reversible modifications.
  18. Thank you! I'll check it out.

    I'm kind of in the same boat, I really like my Rumble 40 - but wish it had more power so I could use it for practices. Some of the guys here advised going to the Rumble 200, I'm hesitant as I've got a 15" in my BA-115v2 and not totally in love with the sound (with what I know now I would have gone for BA-210v2).

    I'm curious to see what works out for you.

    Surely, Shirley, you don't expect a speaker change to give the 40 more power for band practice!?! I don't think that's happening. :rolleyes:
