If you remember what this is designed to do, this amp will suffice quite nicely. It has plenty of power for smaller venues, the classic clean Fender tone and if you are using effects, (I use an RP-300 with mine), you can play with just about any kind of band with this amp. If you are expecting this to be a Mesa Boogie or a Marshall, you might be disappointed, but it will hold its own in a band with these guys. Remember what you are paying for this amp, take good care of it and don't trash the thing when you move it and this amp will serve well. Keep in mind that you can over-distort any amp if you push the speaker too far and don't try to out-volume a stack with it and you will be happy.

I mainly would use this in my room from time to time, and have had it about two or more years. Recently I brought it to band practice because we practice at a coffeehouse but had to go to the room next door to practice and our vocalist needed it to sing thourgh. After a while the sound started to cut out. After about 45 seconds it would come back, and about a minute later it would go out again and so on. The next day my friend was using it to play guitar through. The same thing happened. I felt it and it was hot. So, it overheats and the sound cuts out. great.Pros: Clean sounds ok, but not a lot of eq options for clean. A lot of options for the distortion channel's eq. Loud.Cons: volume dos not come in until the knob is at about 2. does not have a "Master" vol. knob. Overheats and sound cuts out.Just don't buy it, unless you want to install a fan in it.

Awesome amp!

I go over my friends house just to use his amp. It's so nice. It's so loud, too. We jam with my friend on the drums and we BOTH use his ONE amp. Thank the lord for the two inputs. This is a great amp. I recommend it for jamming, but if you want to have a band, go with a 100w amp.

Decent.. could be better

By Nowinski

from Canada

I bought this amp 2 years ago, I didn't know a ton about amps back then, and so when I first plugged it in I loved it. Soon I realized it wasn't as great as I had thought, the clean channel is perfectly fine for me, sounds nice and has no feedback, but the distortion is bad, the reverb is also dying out a little. Overall this combo is good if you're going to be playing in your house or practicing with friends, but I wouldn't recommend it for much more than that.

don't waste your time or money

i bought this amp mostly because of fenders reputation and the decent price, but after i had it for about 3 weeks it went bad so i took it back to the store where i got it and they replaced it. so i took my brand new one home and once again, 3 months later it blew. to put it quite simply, its junk! this thing is loud, and has good power but besides that. its complte garbage. i would recommend the peavey studio pro 112.

Best Amp!

By kyle-6eCBU

This amp was worth every penny. The drive channel is nice but the clean is amazing. There is this boost thing and it is awesome when you use it with the drive channel. It's really loud too.

pretty awesome

This amp plays well for its price. It is the second amp I've used and I am satisfied with the volume distortion and easyness. The ONLY things I can say bad about this amp are that it is slightly heavy and the on switch is on the back (I have mine against a wall), but it's totally worth it.

Friggin Awesome

By LethaLunchbox

Guys (and girls), trust me. You can't go wrong with this amp. My band (STRIPPED OF SANITY) played at a party with 35 people there and the amp was on 5 and it blew away the drums, bass, and singer. This is not one of those reviews were you have to sugarcoat it to make the amp sound good. I'm telling you, this amp is amazing and so loud. If you are looking to start/join a band or just jam with your friends, get this.

A little disappointed

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got the Fender FM65R as a birthday gift about a year and a half ago, and I was a fairly inexperienced musician at the time, so I knew very little about amps and thought it was pretty good. Unfortunately, I learned better. First the reverb started to go, and now the reverb buzzes so much that I can't use it in a practical sense. The driver is very poor, and I ended up getting an Ibanez tubescreamer to make up for that problem. The clean tone is alright from time to time, but it is really inconsistent and often buzzes periodically, and it has lost a great deal of its tone. If you are considering buying this amp, save your money and buy a Fender Blues Junior instead. As a whole, the overdrive on Fender amps is a bit chunky and you lose a great deal of tone with it, so buy a tube driver or a fuzz face to go with one.

Awesome Amp

This amp is awesome! It has very nice distortion for blues music, but the distortion does get a little messy at high volumes. This amp gets very loud and it is defenitley worth the money.

average amp

By Sprint Artist

from Central Pa.

See all my reviews

It's powerful, well-featured (2 inputs, spring reverb, mid contour...), but it has big defects. Mine broke down three times, some pots don't work very fine. It's not Fender quality (it's made in china). But the clean sound is great for the price. The disto sound is a little disappointing, but it's ok. The Mid-Counter button is almost useless, the sound gets too dirty. The reverb is good. I play mainly in my room, and I used the same amp when rehearsing with friends. It's too loud for playing in a bedroom.
