100-watt solid-state with 15" speaker

Comprehensive connections (XLR, FX loop, etc.)

It's a Fender made in China.

The red light looks ridiculous and its brightness changes with the output power. Luckily, you can turn it off with a switch on the rear panel.

UTILIZATION

Very easy setup with a super-effective 4-band EQ.

The output power is enough for rehearsals with a band near a drum kit.

But the amp is not very easy to transport:

It's very heavy and it only has one handle on the top.

The casters are convenient to move it around in the room.

SOUNDS

The frequency response lacks high mids.

It's sort of having a woofer without attack, and a tweeter.

Yuk!

OVERALL OPINION

When I bought it, I was living in a country (Romania) where there were not a lot of choices so I bought the best amp I found.

After a while, a dry solder joint produced noise when the amp was hot and when I played at high output levels. It was still under warranty so I got a new one. Based on my experience if I had to buy a Chinese amp again I would choose a cheaper one!

If I could choose again I would buy another product. Perhaps the frequency response of the Rumble 100 with 2 x 10" speakers has more high mids?

The only good thing about this combo is the Fender logo on the front.
