Fender Rumble Studio 40 Bass Combo
The Rumble Studio 40 digital bass amplifier is a testament to Fender's huge player community, with a wealth of player feedback contributing to the design of the Rumble series. The world's first bass amp with built-in wifi, over 15 amp models and 40 effects, the bar has been well and truly raised!
Fender's Rumble Studio 40 really can do it all as a recording or practise amp. 40 watts of smooth bass output, courtesy of a specially designed Fender 10" speaker with a compression tweeter for a brighter top end you can choose to toggle on or off.
As a digital modelling amp, the Rumble 40 really shines with its variety of amp models, allowing you to emulate sounds vintage, modern or niche! Over 15 presets allow easy switching between vastly different amp setups, from contemporary to legendary old school stage shakers from the 70's and 80's. 40 versatile bass effects are included, with player centric staples like Octave effects, an Envelope Filter, Octobot synth emulator plus essential inclusions such as studio-quality delay, reverb and compression. Effect 'spillover' is also featured, this enables seamless transition between effects, where a delay section you just played for example will continue to ring out naturally while you continue playing with another effect. No more nasty artificial cut-offs mid performance!
The Wifi connectivity is groundbreaking, it enables cloud access to firmware updates for the amp to keep expanding on the wealth of tones already available to the Rumble Studio 40, plus the Fender Play community of players creating and sharing their own pre-sets. Bluetooth connectivity also allows you to stream music wirelessly to the amp, and with the free Fender Tone app you can customise your setup from across the room with ease.
Additional features include the user interface with soft touch keys, large encoder dial and a clear LCD display to quickly and intuitively choose or tweak your sound. An XLR line output is perfect for recording, or plug directly into your DAW with the USB output. Optional MGT-4 4 button footswitch not only allows hands-free control over your pre-sets and a built in tuner, but also unlocks the powerful onboard looper function. You can store up to 60 seconds of recorded input for such purposes as creative composition, layering up riffs for limitless sonic innovation, or to record a rhythm part or chord sequence as a backing track for yourself to practise more effectively and in context.
The Fender Rumble Studio 40 is an all in one digital bass amp ideal for practise or studio, and in addition to featuring most effects and tones you could wish for in a compact form, it also has a degree of future-proofing tied in with firmware updates and custom player pre-set sharing.
