NAMM 2011: Fender Announces New Rumble Bass Amps
Respected bass and amp manufacturer Fender is set to expand its popular range of bass amps at NAMM 2011.
Details of two new Rumble heads and three new Rumble cabinets with a focus on portability and sound have emerged.
The Rumble 150 Head and Rumble 350 Head feature a very conservative estimate of 150 watts (comparable to class D 200 ? 300 W ratings) and 350 watts (comparable to class D 500 - 600 W ratings).
Both heads allow you to dial in the right amount of overdrive for your sound, then blend it in with your clean tone using built in 'stomp box' style controls.
The Rumbles deliver high quality bass tone and professional features at unbeatable value.
The Rumble 2x8 and 112 Cabinets prove Fender can provide good things in small packages.
The Fender 112 can handle 500 watts, yet weighs just 24 pounds, delivering incredible low frequency response from a single 12" neodymium speaker.
Similarly the 2x8 provides 500 watts, but this time across two 8? neodymium speakers, delivering a knockout bass sound - all at just 28 pounds!
Combine these features with the switchable tweeter (full/off/-6db), and you just became a thundering force to be reckoned with, especially when you pair the Rumble 112 with the Rumble 2x8 Cabinet and a Rumble Head.
The new Rumble 410 boasts four 10" Fender Special Design speakers fill the room, with a switchable tweeter (full/off/-6db) for adjustable high-end response.
The powerful 4-ohm Rumble 410 is rated at a volcanic 1,000 watts and sounds great when paired with a Rumble Head (or any head amplifier rated to 4 ohms).Posted on 5 Jan 2011 17:09 to category : Instruments News
