Well, I bought this amp in search of something louder, better, and with fxs. I started with a Behringer 15 wat and figured it was time for this bad boy. I weighed a Marshall 100 wat combo with effects and a Line 6 Spider 3 against this amp and, for me, this one won out. I've had this amp for about a month now, and I couldn't be happier. It's quite versital, I play Rock, Blues, Metal, and Hard Core on it, and it sounds great. My only complaint is that I think the distortions could have a better middle ground to their sound, but I have some Boss pedals to balance that out. I do enjoy the acoustic setting, but it has an odd feedback to it, I haven't pin-pointed it yet, but it only stands out with hard strumming and I think the flange. For normal clean rock and metal I use the jazz setting, but if I feel like playing stairway to heaven or something of that sort I use the acoustic with reverb. I do love the effects on this amp. Just great.Like I said, this is a very versatile amp. I'm playing Doomsday right now, and earlier I was playing La Villa Strangiato, and it sounds great. I definitely hope to use it in future gigs.

I'm "Old School" and have owned alot of great amps in my time. A Marshall 100 w/Super Lead Stack,Fender Pro Reverb,Bassman,Twin,Vox,etc.I've compared amps,tried amps,read reviews and everything in between.I don't gig out all the time so I really didn't want to spend the extra $$$ and go tube.Or go 2nd hand and take the chance of buying someone elses headaches.In the end, I chose this amp.The effects are decent, the choice of amp models are decent, and its got plenty of power.The chasis seems to be a little cheap,and the control pots are touchy, probably because those are a little cheap as well.The overall construction seems sturdy and it looks pretty good too.If you play around with it, I'm sure you'll be able to find a sound you'll be happy with.If your into Metal or the Heavy stuff, try the Head alone model w/a 4/12 cabinet. If you have the $$,then go tube. Theres nothing like the sound of a Tube amp,but this amp sounds pretty good for what it is. And like anything else, if you take care of it,it should last you through your playing days. The price was right, and it works just fine for me!!!

What a bargain!!!!!!!

By Howardhughes

from Illinois

I've been playing guitar for over 35 years. I've owned many different amps. I just got this fender FM212DSP and I just love it! Plenty of power! I love the effects! I play classic rock, blues and country. This amp covers all the bases! I really like the different sound selections it offers you.[British, Heavymetal and more!] You can set your overdrive and then turn the slection knob to Brtish or whatever to get different overdrive sounds! Simply a great amp for the money!!

Not great for metal

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

The other guitar player is my band just got this amp and it is alright. The effects are pretty cool, especially the flanger. The clean is very clear but the distortion is kinda bad for metal. I plugged in my ESP LTD Viper 50 to this amp and i couldnt get a metal tone whatsoever. Bottom line. If you play metal, get something else. If you play anything other than metal, get this amp.


Great Amp!!

This amp truely has a lot of power behind it. I just recieved mine today, and was blown away! The effects are decent: Flanger, reverb, delay. The tweed setting is great, and is my favorite, the jazz setting has a good tone, but a little weak. I have yet to try the acoustic seting with an acoustic but i'm sure it will be fine. The metal setting is a good heavy distortion with high gain. I'm not impressed with the hotrod setting, but the british distortion is outsiding. I think the clean sound is great. This will be good for smaller gigs, especialy jazz at school, or coffee shop gigs, BUT it has the power for even larger ones than that. To sum it up if you want a versitall, great sounding amp that won't break the bank, pick this one up today!!


Good Amp for Gigging

By George-aaoOs

from Atlanta

I am a long time member of a psychelic/rock band. This is perfect for a jam session in the garage, and for a show of well over a hundred people. Distortion is pretty good, clean is perfect. I can sit on it too..it's just that big.It is definately solid quality, I have dropped it twice.


Great Amp, especially for the price!

I got a chance to play this amp over the weekend at my local music shop. I was just messing around with it , playing through an out of tune knock off guitar, just to see how it sounds. Well I was impressed to say the least. This amp made even the shottiest riffs in that store sound great. The metal setting got such a hardcore sound, the british setting sounded so lively and the acoustic simulater had a nice sweet sound. When payday rolls around I will definately pick one up.


Fender FM 212DSP 100 Watt 2x12 Frontman Combo Amp

If you are thinking about buying this amp, think agian. I made the mistake of thinking i was getting a good sounding guitar amp for a steal. However, once i brought the amp home and hooked it up i was very displeased. Besides the wonderful clean channel, the amp has horrible channel 2 sound once you are past 1 or 2 on the volume knob. I would highly reccomend saving your money and buying a 100 watt marshall amp.


very good

My friend owns this amp and I must say that this amp does do the job. It's nice and loud (gigable), but the clean channel isn;t all that great. the distortion can be really really good for metal and pretty good for rock and all. It's also dirt cheap. GREAT value.If you wanna rich warm tone you should prolly go for a tube twin reverb 100 watt, but if your poor and need to play gigs, this amp is what you need.

What happened?

By T.B.

I was heading to the store to pick up the Fender Frontman 212R after playing it earlier, and I found out that the regular 212 is discontinued, all they carry now is the 212 DSP. I am weary of digital effects, and was never a fan of the "a million amps in one" gag, but I plugged it in, and I have to say my low expectations were met, but not exceeded. It gets plenty loud, and has a huge variety of sound between the amp models and effects, but it doesn't do any of these exceptionally well. The effects were fun to mess around with for 5 minutes, but by the time I tried them all, they were sounding stale. Same with the amp modeling. The construction was also instantly disappointing. Flimsy, shiny plastic nobs, and no classic fender look. With the sound combined with my impressions of the construction, I did not purchase this amp. If you play a little of everything, and want something loud to mess around with that wont break the bank, this is a great, cheap option. But if you are like me, and you are looking for something a little deeper, you will quickly dismiss this amp.
