Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) today announced two new Rumble Series additions – Fender’s first Wi-Fi-enabled bass amplifiers. Inspired by traditional Rumble amplifiers, the Rumble Studio 40 and Rumble Stage 800 boast digital functionality and preset options along with the companion Fender Tone app – similar to its Mustang GT sister series – allowing players to join the most engaged community of tone aficionados.

“For over 20 years, Hot Rod amplifiers have been the versatile, dependable, and affordable choice for guitar players of all styles around the globe,” said Shane Nicholas, Director of Product Development, Amplifiers. "Rumble Stage 800 and Rumble Studio 40 build on the success of the best-selling bass amps, the Rumble series – allowing players to expand their sound and creative expression. Fender’s first WiFi bass amplifiers, these new models include a variety of effects and presets across a variety of styles, from old ‘50s blues and arena rock to modern synthesizer-type sounds, all of which can be modified and shared via the Fender Tone app.”

If there’s one thing Fender knows, it’s inspirational tone. Combining hard-earned expertise with feedback from players around the world and brand-new technology, Fender has created the Rumble Studio 40 and Rumble Stage 800 amplifiers - bringing digital capabilities to bass amplifiers. A fun way for bass players to experiment with tone, these new Rumble amps contain presets from mild to wild, hearkening back to songs and sounds from the ‘50s to today. As line extensions to the top-selling Fender Rumble V3 Series, Rumble Stage 800 makes it easy to explore contemporary sounds and update your palette for new sonic possibilities. Fender’s first WiFi-equipped bass amplifiers feature new amp and effects models with even higher fidelity and more realistic response, along with more signal path flexibility so you can move effects anywhere in the signal chain for creative exploration. Packed with classic amp models—everything from the renowned ‘59 Bassman models to monster rigs of the ‘70s and ‘80s and the best modern bass amps— both models can easily recreate classic tones. Also included are more than 40 studio-quality effects; ranging from delays and reverbs, compression and EQ, to bass-specific favorites like octave effects, an envelope filter and Octobot synth emulator.

The new amplifiers are compatible with the free Fender Tone™ app, designed to equip players with more sound possibilities than ever. With the Fender Tone app, it’s easy to download the latest updates, add new amp and effects models, access Fender artist-created presets, and connect directly with a community of other creative players and music makers.

Priced from $349.99-$799.99, the Rumble Studio 40 and Rumble Stage 800 amplifiers celebrate the new age of Fender Bass amplifier technology.
