Tantus Rumble Vibrator Review

tantus_rumble_vibrator

So, there was a bit of a SNAFU a few weeks ago over a year ago… Tantus sent a product out for me to test and review, but unfortunately it went to an old address. Then, I was sent the Tantus Rumble. This is an review of the Tantus Rumble, provided in exchange for the product.

Tantus Rumble vibrator review

It’s sleek, but does it get the job done?

What Is The Tantus Rumble?

In the sales copy, it’s billed as a “vibrator to please every body”, a little word play on everybody, implying that the Tantus Rumble personal massager/vibrator is designed to work for all body types. Specifically, it’s designed to be more ergonomic than say the Doxy Massager or Magic Wand

 A big part of that ergonomic design is the shape of the toy (making it VERY easy to hold in different positions) and the fact that the head and neck of the toy continue to vibrate just the same when bent all the way forward, back, or to either side.

Tantus Rumble Vibrator Materials, Size and Care:

Tantus Rumble Materials:

The Tantus Rumble vibrator head cover is made of the same 100% ultra-premium silicone as all the other Tantus toys. It’s silky smooth and feels pretty soft! The wand is made of

Tantus Rumble Size:

Head Width: 2.4″
Head Height:
1.5″
Full Length: 8.5″
Weight: 6.6oz

Tantus Rumble Care:

The Tantus Rumble is splash-proof, so you can get it a little wet (squirting is probably as far as I’d take it!)… but don’t take it scuba diving or into the tub. As far as lube, your best bet is going to be sticking with water based lubes. I’ve only noticed a Tantus toy reacting to silicone lube once, but why chance it? If you do choose to use some silicone lube to slick things up, I’d spot test on the inside of the head cover first! The head cover can be cleaned with a 10% bleach solution, boiled, or tossed in the dishwasher. The wand/handle of the toy is full of electronics and IS NOT waterproof, so stick with a damp cloth folks!

My Our Experience With The Tantus Rumble Vibrator

So, as often (and where) possible, I’ll be providing my loving girlfriend’s opinion of the products I’m trying out in this section also. This is a 180 from my past stance on providing info from others in my reviews (as I was totally against it at one point, for entirely selfish reasons. I’ll elaborate on that in another post… Full disclosure, y’know?).

Anyway, as soon as I received the Tantus Rumble I tore the box open and threw it on the charger (micro usb, which is fucking amazing. Just saying! Not having to throw another proprietary charger in the pile was nice!) and left it to charge. I was stoked for it to have arrived and even more excited to get down to trying it out with my girlfriend.

I left it charging for an hour or so while we watched TV and then we made our way to the bedroom. Each toy has a period were we goof off with it really and the Tantus Rumble Vibrator was no different.

After we’d finished being goofy as fuck, we drifted into more sexual and less nonsensical territory and started letting the Rumble rumble on our erogenous zones.

My (our) first thoughts were that the Rumble just isn’t very powerful… and that’s because it isn’t. The Rumble isn’t made to an end all, be all vibrator. It’s intended as a way to apply vibration to different areas in a ergonomic form factor.

It does succeed in delivering some different sensations, but it’s not going to come close to your Doxy, Hitachi, or Wahl “vibrating massagers”. It’s just not meant to, and quite frankly my mind would be blown if something so small (with such a small power source) could do so.

With a more intense look at the Tantus Rumble, we discovered quickly that it is nice. It feels good, but isn’t overwhelming. At times, it feels exceptional… At others, it feels like the Tantus Rumble is a shot at tickling your bits that doesn’t hit quite right. Obviously, it’s not made for any sort of insertion so you’ll be looking at hitting places like the shaft and head of the penis, the clitoris, and the labia as major zones.

With that in mind, we encountered one major issue with the Tantus Rumble:

The silicone head? It can cause some pinching.

The silicone head cover? It had a tendency to pinch her labia and any stray hairs that got around it. The area where the head cover stops, leaving a minute crevice? That’s the Grand Canyon of pain.

Overall, Tantus Rumble is okay. It's not a game changer, but it isn't horrible either.

The Tantus Rumble vibrator is a peek at what a more serious Tantus foray into the territory of dedicated vibrators could look like. The silicone head cover? the Tantus Rumble feels amazing, when it isn’t pinching squishy, sensitive bits. The ergonomics of the whole design are pretty damn wonderful.

But it’s not perfect. Nothing is.

Overall, the Tantus Rumble Vibrator isn’t bad… but it isn’t the greatest either. If you are looking for something that can add some sensation without going overkill? Maybe the Tantus Rumble is for you. In addition to being small and portable, the fact that it doesn’t require some proprietary charger that costs $44.95 because it has magnets and silver embossing is pretty nifty (You can use an android charger!).

And maybe… Maybe you just collect Tantus stuff. Cause it’s Tantus and most Tantus stuff fucking rocks.

    Nice to see you are back!
    Your review fits with the other ones I’ve read about the Rumble, it just isn’t not another Magic Wand.

    Hope to see more from you in the future.
