About Fender Bass Amps

Fender Rumble bass amps are a comprehensive range of solid state combos, heads and cabinets that span from 25 watts right up to 500 watts! Fender Rumble amps cover various types of use from bedroom playing through to studio rehearsals and finally performances on the world's biggest stages!

Each Rumble model has an overdrive circuit for creating great distorted bass tones and most models have an XLR balanced output for putting your sound directly into a mixing desk. Fender bass amps have always been classic and the Rumble range seems set to carry that flag onwards.

Fender Rumble amps can be found in each and every one of our UK guitarguitar stores.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fender Bass Amps

Fender have two ranges of bass amp - the Rumble series and the Bassman Pro series. The Rumble series is solid state and comes in a large variety of combos and heads with matching cabs. The Bassman Pro series are tube amps with retro styling and come in a range of heads and cabs only.
We think a sound choice would be the Fender Rumble 500 combo. It has 500w of power with 3 voices (Vintage, Contour and Bright) with a switchable overdrive circuit and EQ controls. There are two 10" Eminence speakers along with a Compression horn to sort out the high end, making this a bass amp that can accompany you on any stage!
This is an area that can confuse people and it is not hard to understand why! Back in the late 50s and early 60s, Fender made the Bassman combo for bassists. Guitar players began to use it and found that it was great for guitar tones (that is the amp you're hearing on almost all of Jimi Hendrix's recordings by the way, not a screaming Marshall stack!). They began to use them more for guitars than for bass. Jim Marshall based his first amp design on the Fender Bassman. Nowadays, Fender make reissue tweed combos of the Bassman and these are really for guitarists. Fender, however, also make a series of bass amps under the name Bassman Pro series! These are 'blackface' design heads and cabs that are designed specifically for basses, not for guitars. We hope that clears things up but if you require advice, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
