    There is some presumption that they are based largely on the Genz Benz amps, anyone looked inside any? I liked the Contour amps which I'd guess these are the same as but in a new box.

    Fender acquired GB, GB disappears from the market, Fender releases new lightweight range of amps. It's an easy conclusion to draw, but I can't say I'm an expert, nor have I cracked open my amp to have a look!

    I'm guessing I could always plug in my Markbass extension cab if more volume was required?

    Definitely for your bigger gigs. I believe the 500 bizarrely operates at 350watts at 8 Ohms, so you need an extension cab to get all the juice out of it.

    As an aside, I love the Rumble amps. I bought one of the previous gen 15's after two similarly priced Ampegs crapped out on me, and then upgraded to the new Rumble 40 (lighter, XLR out, 3 preamp voices, 4-band EQ, and built in overdrive) which I see no need to upgrade. It's a cracking amp.

    It did indeed, at the Herts Bass Bash, and it wasn`t a close call - it won by miles.

    That's my bass! There was some stiff competition too!

    It`s not too heavy Dave, but not a lightweight either. I`ve not got any scales but in comparison to my 2008 Precision, which I know is about 8.8lbs, it feels a bit heavier so I`d put it at 9.3lbs at a guess.

    So somewhere between your '08 and your '78?

    I fitted the Stinger preamp yesterday and it's transformed the bass, in fact I've put my amp levels back and it's very articulate too, I'm glad I did it.

    Nice work. How was the fitting of it? Easy enough to do?

  6. I'm up to 4 basses now - the rack is in the pic below, with the most recent addition sitting front and centre.

    Fender Deluxe Active Precision (my original, 10 years old)

    Fender Mark Hoppus P (nearly a year old, my main bass these days)

    Squier Bass VI (an indulgence, cool to play, looks killer)

    Yamaha Attitude Special (the Taiwanasaurus, newest acquisition)

    And yes peoples, I know the thought of me getting all misty over a Jazz bass sounds incredulous, but I was just so knocked out by the sound that I`ve got to try it and see if it works for me.

    I'm amazed! First I open up a thread and hear you waxing lyrical about a non-Markbass, non-Ampeg rig, and now you're harking on about a Jazz? You used to be cool man :P

    In all seriousness, if you heard something new that sounds better than what you've got, you'd be daft not to give it a go. That's why we're all here, right? Let me know how you get on, I've always loved the [i]idea[/i] of a jazz but never quite taken the plunge.
