    How's a going folks. I was hoping I might get one of them fancy numbers you guys have? I just picked up my new stage 800 last week but the site was down in the meantime. I've been lurking around this forum for a while trying to decide whether or not to get the stage 800 and I got loads of inside info here. Between here and Billy the kids YouTube vids, I went for it and I can absolutely say, no amount of YouTube vids or forum threads could have prepared me for how this Rumble actually sounds. It's class. I'm still playing around with it so loads to discover still. So I'd just like to say thanks for all the advice I've got from here

    I also have a newbie question about the amp compression if anybody could clarify it for me. Each amp has its own built in compression, which goes from low 1-3, mid 1-3, high 1-3, and max 1-3? I'm right in saying this just refers to the level of compression rated 1-12, and not compression over the low, mid and high frequencies??

    Thanks in advance!

    It's going great here, Colmy, since TB is back online! Here ya go: @ColmBass, you are now member #1334 in the Fender Rumble Club. Congratulations and welcome to TalkBass in general and to The Club in particular. Put that number in your TB Signature for safe keeping and to be instantly recognized as a bassist of distinction. And checkout the Rumble Club Wiki page as the repository of all Rumbling wisdom and knowledge.

    Tell us a bit about your bass experience in general and your Rumble journey in particular. You're bound to fit right in here as we have all kinds.


    As a Stage 800 owner we ask that you please refer such discussions of such Rumble modeling features to The Club's Rumble LT25, Studio 40 & Stage 800 sub-thread in order to spare our non-modeling Rumblers from these more technical aspects. I will personally begin investigating your query for answering there, directly, though there may be others there with the answer on the tips of there keyboard, if not tongue. :D

    So, let us all. ... ...

    Rumble On!

    FINALLY....

    Band has been on hiatus for about two months as drummer was involved in a car accident and broke a rib and his collarbone. Thank god that was the only damage to him, but car, unfortunately, totaled! I've been very busy with work and with no jams happening for a while, my gear has been missing me (and I them). Got a call yesterday and drummer was ready to give it a go, so today was the day and boy was it fun!!

    We were a bit rusty understandably, but things clicked quickly and we just dived into it. Just about 5 hours in total (with many breaks and lot's of catching up). I've been able to play on my Studio 40 a few times, but been a while since I cranked up the 500 combo sitting on top the 112. Man - I've been missing that!! My geddy sounded great - recently put on new EB cobalt flats - and was really putting some power into our power trio!:bassist:

    I do enjoy playing/practicing alone, but there just is simply nothing like jamming with your bandmates - it does a body GOOD! :thumbsup:

    I don't enjoy playing/practicing alone and I can't find my bandmates :bawl:. But, I am looking for new ones...

    Attention: Rumble Club Wiki Edit Alert!

    Thank you, @CallMeAl, for starting your V3 Rumble Reliability Data thread. It has now been linked in the Rumble Club Threads section of the Rumble Club Wiki! This is a very interesting, if unscientific, thread that perhaps reveals more about human nature than the actual topic espoused.

    Thanks for this, Al. Today's posts brought back to my attention. :smug:

    Hey, that's a very nice closeup, cb! :roflmao: @cb56, you are now member #1335 in the Fender Rumble Club. Congratulations and welcome. Checkout your Rumble Club Wiki page, the repository of all Rumbling wisdom and knowledge.

    It's a pleasure to have such a long-time TB veteran amongst us, but don't feel like the Lone Ranger. There's others here, too. And some of us johnny-come-lately TBers have several decades of bass experience, also. Help us get to know you with a bit about your bass experience in general and your Rumble journey in particular, please. You're in good company here, where we all love to ... ...

    Rumble On!

    I bought a new bass online and as I was buying it, the website said it was in stock. Turns out it has to be imported from the US of A first.

    Kinda sucks but it's not that bad. My NBD will have to wait close to 2 months, though.

    I'm okay. I'm not crying.

    Hi. I got a Mk I Rumble 25 at Christmas.
    Perfect for a little home practice (I don't gig).
    I am running a Zoom B1X Four through the FX loop at the moment, but am thinking of doubling up with another B1 Four out front too!
    Great little amp.

    Does my humble 25 qualify for admittance to the club? Planning to add a 100 as soon as I can A/B with the Ampeg rb112.

    Here it is. Not bad nick for an 18yr old amp! The original owner was apparently an old jazzer who only played this one at home (no cats or dogs!). Still got the showroom sticker!!
