power cord for Fender rumble 500 v3

Post by RickG » 29 Jun 2017, 21:34

I'm the proud new owner of a Rumble v3 500 amp and 4 x 10 cab :hyper: . Just one problem - the amp has no power cord! I figure it's just a standard 'jug plug' but can anyone tel me if you can get genuine Fender replacement amp cords? I'e had a look online but can only find generic ones.

I'd hate to use a dodgy one not intended for an amp and have a failure of some kind.

Thanks

All I can say is that they are also called kettle cords for a reason, and a kettle is drawing a lot more than most amps, so it will be fine. I know what you mean about using the right thing, but this isn't something to worry about. Find any old PC store and get a long one and be done with it.

Congratulations on the new toy! Just wrote the same thing as Nick above, but more verbose. Don't stress it, lots of places have them and as long as they are rated for 10Amp @ 240V you'll be fine.
... dial in some "J" to angry it up!

Got gear but little talent!

Cool, thanks guys. Electronics was never really my thing. Seemed too easy to be able to just get a generic one and be done with it!

Thats exactly what I did when I imported my Peavey amp and it had the american plug on the cord. As said above, it'll be fine. Jaycar would be the go.

Those little fender heads are sound ace as well!
