Sort by most recent most useful. The Fender Frontman R is a guitar combo amplifier on the low end of the spectrum for Fender amps.

In fact, it's one of the cheapest 2 x 12 combo amps that you'll find. This is a solid state amplifier, putting out watts into 4 ohms. The first channel is simple, with only knobs for volume, treble, mid, and bass, while the second channel has the same plus a drive parameter.

It also has a channel select button also controllable with the foot switch , a 'more drive' feature, and a mid contour button as well. Lastly, on the far right there's a reverb knob. I've never seen a manual for the Fender Frontman R. The clean sound is okay, although very solid state sounding and not warm like tube amp. It will definitely get the job done for practicing and gigging for beginners. However, the distortion on here is pretty much unusable and it's super tinny.

The reverb is nice to have but again isn't the best of it's kind. It sounds okay for the price, but will never stand up to most other Fender amplifiers. I'd still probably recommend going with something smaller if you're just starting out, but if you insist that you need a bigger amp for gigging and still can't pay more than a few hundred bucks, the Frontman R should suit you.

If you're looking for an amp built to last, this isn't it, but it is super cheap and worth checking out for those looking for their first 2x12 amp. Did you find this review helpful? The all black version of the Fender frontman which is only cosmetically different then the silverface once from Fender that you would normally see. Same lame features of terrible sounding solid state tone.

What is this amp It looks very deceiving because it looks like a Fender Twin or something but it doesn't have any tube and it's not an amp modeling even though it is priced at that price point. If you see this thing at yard sale beware because you might think you're looking at a Twin Reverb but you come to find out it is some solid state two speaker waste of time. It has three channels that sound awful besides the clean channel. The clean sounds decent but god lord this amp is terrible!!

This thing is so bad I am actually embarrassed to have listened to it. It sounds horrible with any guitar and and effect pedal you put through it. It takes pedals extremely bad and guitar sound like your playing hasn't improved since you first picked up a dusty acoustic guitar. This amp I'm sorry is just garbage. I am not sure what the point is for this amp. I have been trying to wrap my head around why Fender would market this product and I can't come to any conclusion.

They have a Mustang series amps that are around the same price point and do amp modeling which sound far more superior if that's possible with an amp modeler to this thing. I didn't give this an unusable rating since it does have a Fender clean tone, but if you want any amount of distortion then throw this thing off a roof and buy a Roland amp modeler or a Line 6.

Who would I recommend this to Don't waste you time getting a Twin Reverb look a like solid state paper weight. Not only do I think the tone of this amp is terrible but slapping a new tolex cover on it and calling it a Limited Edition is a bit much for a solid state amp.

Same amp as the standard black Frontman, but just in a hideous red colored tolex. Same features and lousy tone as the original amp. Originally written by valskater on Audiofanzine FR. The clean channel can provide a "dry" or "fat" response. Overdrive channel: - drive: crunch sound, very good for blues - more drive: good for hard rock and heavy metal I use almost only the clean channel with a Boss DS-2 stomp box.

It's my first "big amp". Very good value for money. Based on my experience, I would buy another amp to discover something different. This amp is a Fender Solid-State guitar amplifier. This amp has two inputs. There are three channels clean, drive, more drive. The amp has built-in spring reverb, which is a master control it applies to both channels. There is a simple, one-knob control for this reverb. There are seperate volume knobs and EQ knobs for each channel the EQ is three-way, bass, middle, and treble.

The drive channel also has a gain knob. There is a footswitch capability as well. It is good if you want to use it to boost solos or leads, as it is louder and has a little more fuzz on it.

This helps a lot and is useful, but unfortunately, there aren't many other useful things about this amp. For one, it has a typical solid-state problem of not providing any natural distortion. Also, the EQ controls are pretty weak, and they don't go very far at all in shaping the tone. Thus the guitar has very little variation in tones.

If you aren't extremely happy with the tone you've got, this amp is going to be tough to get a good sound out of. I like it best with my Strat and my Tele, but I wouldn't say that any guitar sounded particularly good with it.

I didn't have particularly high expectations considering the price, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. The clean tones are very precise, and don't color the sound at all. However, that's not a good thing, as I like to have a little bit of breakup in the sound. A true clean channel isn't interesting for those of us who play blues, rock, or other similar styles, unless they want to sound really tame. The drive channel is likewise pretty weak. It will certainly inspire those of us who play more light, smooth music, though.

One of the benefits is that there is almost no noise with this amp, so if noise drives you crazy, this might be something to look into. It's not that great sounding of an amp, but who expects it to be at dollars? I don't regret having it, if one of my amps were to die or something, and I needed a quick replacement, I'd use this, but I don't think I'd ever prefer it to a tube amp. I bought this unit off Musicians Friend for This is a great amp. It's solid as a rock and looks awsome.

Along with the clean channel, which has a 3 Band EQ that sounds great even at high volumes, you have the Drive channel and the more drive channel.

The drive really kicks in the distortion for almost any kind of music, and the more drive cahnnel completly floors you. These channels also have a Mid-contour switch that lets you dial in the perfect tone for any knid of music. It also has classic fender spring reverb.

And did i mention the volume of this beast? You can practice and gig with this awsome amp. AND you get a foot switch. The only thing thats kinda weird and i dont know if its just mine, but when using the footswitch when switching from drive to more drive, the normal channel comes on for like a split second. Its bulit very nicely everything is good except when mine came the POWER indicater light had fallen into the amp. Probably something happened when being shipped. But i got it back in so its all good.

Honestly, if you are looking for a first gigging amp, or any gigging amp, i suggest you buy this beast. I have one, and my friend Nick The other guitarist in my band has one, and we love them. So Go out and get one! Amp transistor W, 2 channels: one clean and one drive with 2 different saturations. I play it with a TV and a Jazzmaster and it was okay. He taf but lack of balls sorry. There breath. If I resumed the guitar, so I would resume a Marshall.

Cons: breath, its not so terrible pedals sound which works very well on a Marshall is used. Cookies help us improve performance, enhance user experience and deliver our services.
