    hey sorry for yet another amp vs amp thread but im in a sticky situation.

    I am getting a new amp VERY soon (today most likely) and going to be saving alot on one of the two amps i buy because its old stock. I would try them both but unfortunately they are located at different shops and i havnt got time to visit both shops as they are far from each other. The amps that are available to me are either the Fender rumble 100/115 or the Ibanez SWX100. Both are 100 watts with 15 inch speaker.

    Since i can only go to have a look at one of them, based on those specific models and the brands, which would you say is overall better and worth my time.

    Hi beni_25.

    Where do you live?

    This might make a difference should you ever need to get an amp repaired after its warranty expires.

    I've got the Fender Rumble 60 as my main amp atm (not in a band) and it's just brilliant! it's given me so many different things to work with, i can get so much out of it!

    the rumble series is definitely worth looking at!
  6. I would go with the fender simply because Ibanez is a guitar/bass maker, and not an amp maker

    +1 for the Fender. It's a known quantity.
