Hi guys looking to get a small light /value bass amp for my teen daughter to use for school shows etc.. she plays a squier jaguar (full scale)

Looking at the new Rumble 100 seems well priced light at 22lbs (lighter than my 50 watt practice ampeg !) and 100 watts

any opinions on these ?

I had one and thought it was great. It punches way above its weight class.

I eventually bought a 500 because I was playing in a band with a guitarist who had trouble controlling the volume. The 100 actually kept up but I was running it really hot all the time. I'd have kept it but I didn't have room for both (I'm mainly a guitarist and those amps take up all the room!).

I give the amp an unqualified recommendation if your band is playing at reasonable volume.

If the Rumble 40 is any indication I’d say it would be perfect. Even the 40 is better than my original 1968 Fender Bassman. which was a great guitar amp but anemic with the bass.

Well i got the amp and I very pleased with it,, plenty of power, very clean sounding and light to boot !

The only negative I would have to say is that Fender dont make a specific cover for it so will need to get one made.

Went with my cousin to buy to buy a bass amp. She went with the Fender Rumble 100. Great little amp and surprisingly lightweight.
