The Fender Rumble Studio 40 Bass Guitar Amplifier Combo is the perfect all-in-one solution for bassists who need a stage- and studio-friendly rig that is easy to manoeuvre, tonally versatile, and even boasts Wi-Fi connectivity.
The future is now
The Rumble Studio 40 borrows from the Mustang GT's footprint, but utilising its impressive processing power to create a vast selection of tricks to play with. There are over 15 amp and cabinet models built-in, as well as more than 40 effects. From Fender's original "TV-front" Bassman of the '50s, through the stadium-filling rigs that rattled through the '70s and '80s, to modern-day marvels that produce everything from sweet cleans to fat overdrive, the Rumble Studio 40 can do it all.
The studio-quality effects on offer include delays, reverbs, a plethora of compression and EQ controls. With octave effects, envelope filters, the synth-emulating Octobot, and so much more at your disposal, you have everything needed to perform any musical style with aplomb.
When it comes to performing or recording purposes, the Rumble Studio 40 is equipped with XLR line outputs for connecting directly to a mixing desk or PA. The effects loop allows you to integrate outboard effects seamlessly.
This ingenious amp also boasts WIFI connectivity for downloading software updates and accessing more tones. Direct USB out recording, and Bluetooth audio streaming makes life easier when laying down your masterpieces or playing along with tracks. When you just fancy kicking back and practising into the wee hours, the headphone output has you covered there too.
Accessing the power within the Rumble Studio 40 is delightfully simple thanks to the easy to use top control panel. The usual Gain, EQ, and Master controls are set out with large easy to grab aged white knobs. Alongside them, there are specific buttons and controls to access the digital controls with an easy to read interface.
Portable yet solid
The lightweight plywood cabinet houses the 10-inch Fender Special Design speaker and compression tweeter in a secure enclosure. The moulded plastic strap with black powder coated caps provides a comfortable yet sturdy carrying handle. The black finish and grille gives the Rumble Studio 40 a sophisticated look.
The optional Fender MGT-4 footswitch allows you to control the amp's settings hands-free, perfect for executing dynamic live performances.
