I actually got this amp on reputation alone. I've always loved
Fender gear and this did not disappoint. It has an excellent
value and I'd buy it again. In fact, I'd like to get the whole
family of the new Rumble series for different purposes. I love
the design of them and the sound. Whoever developed these
really did their homework.

Loud, full, and clean. Overdrive has a nice bumble bee sound
to it. If you like Fender amps, you should like this one. You
can get pretty much whatever sound you want with it.
It's really light to carry, especially with the side
handles. If you're used to hauling around stacks, you'll notice
this right away. It has casters, too. The controls are simple
and require minor tweaking to suit to taste.
It seems pretty tough to me. I haven't gigged with it yet, so I
don't know how that will hold up in that area. I've never had
problems with Fender in the past, though. I try to take good of
my gear, anyways.
