Hey guys
Just got my stiletto custom 4 and Fender Rumble 75. Love the bass, but i'm a little on the fence about the amp. I got it from gc so i still have about 20 days to make up my mind. I was wonderin if someone could recommend if I should just keep the rumble, get an acoustic b100, or some other amp for around 250 bucks USD. Its goin to be used for practicing at home 95% of the time and I play rock and metal.
Thanks so much guys, really appreciate all the bass forums help as i've been tryin to get used to a new instrument

I have an Acoustic b20 that I like quite a bit. And I've really never liked the sound of any Rumble amp I've ever played through. I think the Acoustic line sounds better, and it's another 25 watts and a 15" speaker for the same price, so I'd swap.

For $250, if you go used, you can probably get a decent half-stack. Out of those two however, i'd go with the Acoustic just because I don't like Fender rumbles.

Check craigslist for used gear. I found a crate full stack for $350. Would have bought it, but I have no way to move it.

Peavey comes to mind. I got a full stack rig for only $200. You just gotta look through craigslist, ebay, classifieds, etc. Go through all of your resources and you'll dig something up.
