I decided on the Fender Rumble 500 after first wanting to save up for a Bassman, but as I demoed the Rumble and did more research online, I realized that the difference in tone (for what I was looking for) was so minimal. I have it paired with the Rumble 1x15 cab, and it's never given me any problems. Just wish it was rackmountable!
