I bought this amp from a music store in my town for $290. I'm a drummer primarily, but I've been playing bass for about two years and my 15 watt Fender wasn't cutting it anymore, so I was looking for something bigger but not too expensive. I was trying to decide between the Rumble 100 and the Rumble 60. Luckily, the store had both and I was able to come to a quick decision. The 100 sounded significantly better at any volume, and only cost about $70 more. Considering that most people will never need an amp louder than this, it's a no-brainer. I'm sure it'll be the last bass amp I ever buy.

To me, the greatest advantage is the sound. I think it's great, even/especially when you start to crank it up. That 15" speaker really lets it sing. I admit that I'm a bass novice, but every time I plug in I'm still surprised at the quality of the sound that comes out. The features are great too; my favorite being the stereo inputs. This way, not only can you play along to cd's or records, but I can actually hook up my stereo to it and it's loud enough for me to play along (with drums I mean) and I can still hear the music clearly. The XLR jack is cool but I don't have much use for it, and the pulsating red light is just a great thing to show off to your friends. "Look everyone, it's talking..."
Oh yeah, and it has wheels which is a big thumbs up.

I honestly don't have any complaints so far. I know some people complain that it's a bit heavy to not have side handles, but it doesn't worry me.

Seems solid so far. It's the perfect size too; small enough to sit in the back seat of a 4-door with another person, big and sturdy enough to sit on if you're inclined to do so.

This amp is the perfect upgrade from a beginner practice amp. Seriously, look no further. It sounds great, the price is fantastic, and in general it is a solid and attractive piece of equipment with uses other than just being a bass amp. If I lost this one, I wouldn't think twice about replacing it with any other kind of amp. And it's once again worth stating that the Rumble 60 is no good-spend just a little extra cash and get a first rate amp.
