Ok the thing was not that good mechanically.....and I am due for an upgrade I have been looking at the Rumble 100 combo. First off all I am is an intermediate player I am not in a band, I play in my bedroom, my 12 year old neice and her friends like to play my bass when they come over, and I play with my guitarist brother when he has the time to come over and have a "jam" session. Not to sound big headed but he was one of the guitarists for Eddie Murpy when he tried doing the music thing back in 1994 the cool thing about that is he got to jam with Larry Graham at the Montraeux Jazz Festival in Sweden... My brother and his band also played with Joey Molland for a Badfinger reunion so that is cool too. Anyways back to pathetic little me... I have heard good things on the rumble 100...but before I sign on the dotted line I was wondering if there is something else out there that might be better for the same price range. I am currently playing a Washburn T-24 but I am getting a G&L Trib pretty soon so whatever combo would go best with the Tribby. Thanks for the help. By the way the Rumble is around 300 bucks.
