Got this jewel 2 weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased! I own several vintage, original Fender tube amps that are just too loud for my neighbors when I want to practice or "jam" so I read about this one and thought I'd give it a try. I've read that some replace the speaker right away, but this one seems to be just fine. The clean and the drive channels are very true for a solid state and I experience no static or break up at the higher volumes. This 'lil sucker can go loud too! I was really impressed with the reverb on this amp. It's rich, full and thick, and quite sensitive to the control knob. It performs better than I expected. The "Blackface" look is a nice touch as well. It's lite enough to carry in my pocket yet produces a big sound...and I don't have to disturb my neighbors! I dig that I can plug in earbuds and play silently too. All in all, great little amp. Well done Fender! Well done Musicians Friend! Can't beat the price either. *in my best "Cartman" voice*, "I love you'guys"...

I've been a player for going on 45 years now and still active in a classic rock&roll band. I haven't had a non-tube amp for at least 25 years. Currently playing through a 66' Super-Reverb or a 73' Bandmaster-Reverb. I am also a stomp box junkie. I know it's a sickness so don't judge me. I researched a little to find a respectable practice amp that I can fire up and play something at a moments notice. I decided on trying out this Frontman 25r. It got good reviews, so for the money, why not. I even picked up a replacement speaker to drop in it as soon as it arrived. I bought the Eminence Redcoat Ramrod. I know everybody recommends the Rajun Cajun. But I knew what the Redcoat can do. This amp is better than expected. Way better. For the extra 75.00 bucks to upgrade the speaker. Was a gamble that was worth it too. For a total of $160.00, the purchase was all well worth it. I think this amp will hold it's own with a full band rehearsal and even small venue gigs. Also note that the fender amp cover made for the Fender Champion 110 fits this amp perfect.

    Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have had this amp since 05.I have used it and abused it but it has never let me down. If you play with it you can get a good sound from it.I like to use the drive channel and just turn the gain up till you can hear it .then turn up volume.It gives the impression of a tube amp about to break up.not quite as good but pretty close.I have played it out live and was amazed at how loud it can be.40 years of playing ...aroom full of equipment and i still grab for this for small venues because I know when I plug it in the little light will come on and it will sound good

      Really like it. Don't get me wrong. It's just that the reverb isn't as good sounding as the original version and the overall amp tone isn't quite as Fender chimey as the metal grill version.

            Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

            I've used this amplifier many times for live shows and it was way better than I had expected. It really does the job for me and I can hear it over the drums, no problem. If you are a big tone junkie then you may want to relace the speaker. The factory speaker is okay but it could be better...all a matter of opinion. Whenever playing live, I can mic the amp (with the amp volume set at 3)and use the amp as my personal monitor. I am a Fender/Gibson guy but I prefer to use tube amps. For the price though, this little amp is well worth it for what I needed...the decision is too easy. Buy today...

                      I currently own a 1988 Peavey VTX Classic and a 1974 Fender Dual Showman Reverb with 2-15 bottom. I wanted a small portable amp with reverb for not much money. This amp fits the bill 100%. It sounds like a good Fender amp should. I play clean and I rarely have to turn it up above 3 for living room settings. I don't use the overdrive channel but I have tried it out of curiosity and it can be over the top (in a good way). I wholeheartedly recommend this amp with no reservations whatsoever.

                          Classic Fender good looks and massive sound from this compact amp.

                          I use the clean channel with pedals to get a distorted grunge/post-punk type sound out of this amp.

                          The power from this amp has got to be heard to believe. I typically don't turn it up past 2 or 3 -- and when I do, I need earplugs to protect my hearing.

                          It is easily loud enough to play with a drummer and not be lost.

                          The RC jacks are useful to play a drum track via my smart-phone, though the single speaker does tend to get a bit muddy with my distorted signal and the drum track pushing through simultaneously. Still, having that extra input option is a great perk for practicing.

                            Got this amp and right out of the box it sounded great. IT'S LOUD and Fender clean. I can't believe this amp cost this cheap. The stock speaker is not bad at all. I wanted to mod the amp so bought a Celestion G10 Vintage speaker and replaced the stock speaker. Less than 10 minutes job. Now this amp sounds killer and LOUDER than it was before (G10 made the sound a little darker and I'm loving it). I can do gig with this amp now. A great buy. If you want a best amp in the market with very little money, go for this one...Thanks MF!
