So my Rumble 100 got fried yesterday. Even used on E-Bay, you can’t find the most recent model for anything under $300, which is its retail price. Those things just maintain their value and last for ever, so you won’t find them a lot in the used instrument market.
Because I have another rig which is in the 4 figures, I’m not really motivated to pay more than $400 for a replacement practice amp. I am almost certainly gonna go for a Rumble 100 again, but I was wondering if there were any other options in the $300-$400 range which you think might be giving the Rumble a run for its money. For example, they might have a better distortion channel (the Rumble’s is not very good).
I am not looking for lots of flim flam and effects; I have pedals for that. I’m looking for decent tone in the $300-$400 range. I have a more mature rig for greater needs in terms of both tone and volume.
