On the Fender Rumble amps, what does the horn do, and what does the vintage setting do?

    I'm trying to learn more about amp settings. I know what overdrive is, and o know that contour cuts the mids and boosts the lows and highs, but that's about it.
  2. Maybe this will help.

    Fender Rumble Club "TONE POOL"

    Try the copy of sheet 1 page. That's what I have to use to see all the settings.
    But Vintage is going to help get you closer to to old school tube type warmth.

    Horn just adds some high's to the cab. It's subtle though IMO.

    Best to pop on over to the Fender Rumble Club section with your "Rumblings." :thumbsup:

  3. Right from the owner's manual:

    VINTAGE — Creates a dark tone rich with harmonics and some natural compression.

    The horn will add high-frequency crispness and sparkle for more modern tones that are well suited for slap-style funk.

    Sound more like flatten the highs to create boomy bottom without much definition, “dark tone”.

    I have a 40W Rumble and never mess with the high noon settings. It’s a low volume practice amp.

    OP, what does the difference sound like to you?
