This amp was shipped to me by mistake, but I decided to keep it for a few days to evaluate it (and possibly keep it).This is a fairly compact, light weight amp that delivers 65 watts into a 12" speaker. It's unique in that the back is closed, giving increased bass response. It has two channels. The first delivers the classic Fender clean sound. It comes pretty close when compared to my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. The second channel lets you vary the amount of distortion, as well as dial up a number of different amplifier models. I found all of the models to be quite good, giving this amp a wide range of tonal characteristics. I was impressed by the fact that you cannot add distortion when you select the acoustic amp model (Fender wants to protect us from ourselves!)The digital effects are nice. The effect you choose affects both channels. Aside from selecting an effect, the only other control available changes the intensity or mix of the effect. The speed of the effect is governed by presets.There are CD input jacks that let you run a drum machine through the amp. A two button foot switch is included to switch channels and turn effects on and off.Several hours of playing indicate this is a good sounding amp that handles high volume levels quite well. The effects are absolutely wonderful, and so much more convenient to use than a pedal. True, a pedal and my Hot Rod Deluxe will give me more flexibility, but the elegant simplicity of having a good range of effects built into a great sounding amp is very appealing.The only disadvantages I see with this amp is the lack of a control to vary the speed of effects like tremolo, chorus, etc.). I also wish it had a separate reverb control, since some of the effects do not include reverb. I also would like to see a built in tuner, but that's what the Dynatouch series offers (at a higher price).Overall, I am very impressed with this addition to the Fender line.

This is something of an intermediate amp with a bunch of options. I would suggest buying this amp if you have been playing for about 2-3 years. The effects are great, especially the delays and reverbs. But the gain on some of the amp models are a bit lacking. I have a gibson les paul classic, and some of the amp models don't go the best with it, The British is too weak for the rhythm pickup, and its way too bright for the bridge pickup. Overall it sounds like a weaker version of a 1959 plexi when you turn up the treble and mid all the way up, and the bass all the way down. This makes it sound decent, and gives you the closest thing you're going to get on this in terms of a Marshall tube amp. The metal amp is way to fuzzy. There is a constant hum with it at any volume. The clean channel would be a lot better if it had a middle control, because it either gets too basey or bright to a point of light distortion. I do not recommend this to players over 6 or 7 years with a decent knowledge of amps.

Good amp for the money

By Anthony P

from Cranston,RI

See all my reviews

This amp has it all...... all the effects you need enough power when you need it and on top of that its very clean sounding. If you looking for that fender quality and don't want to spend a massive amount of money this amp is an excellent choice.

fender frontman

By PRSrocker42

I played this amp with my prs tremonti se and loved it. Normaly I hate fender amps because of their dissatisfying overdrive and complicated controls but this was the exception. I particullarly enjoyed the combinmation of the flange efect with the metal channel. I was hooked for hours. My only problem was that the volume controls were a bit touchy.

GREAT FOR THE PRICE

By dale denton

from new york

I have owned this amp for about 6 months and love it. The amp is great for playing in a band. The effects are decent. The gain channels have a buzz which is a little annoying. I don't feel that this amp is good for playing metal but great for rock. I use pedals anyway so that solves my problem. another thing is if you are looking a practice amp, you shouldnt get this. its portable enough but is big and heavy. Overall this amp is great for the price and would recomend it. I am very happy with my buy.

It's a Beast!

By CHRISening

I recieved this amp for christmas, to replace my 10 watt Ibanez amp that I got when I started playing. Anything was obviously an improvement, but this thing is amazing. The effects are amazing, the tone is great and overall it sounds so awesome. I have played Marshall amps (solid state and tube) and honestly they this amp is better. I highly recommend this amp to anyone and everyone. This is just a great buy!

You Get What You Pay For

By Mr. Coolio

from Alaska

See all my reviews

I own this amp, and have been using it for Worship over the past two years. I would have to say pass on it. It's a super bassy amp, and doesn't have a great tone. If you're looking for a cheap loud amp, this will work great. But once you get into tone you'll start dreaming of when you can get rid of it. Plus it's falling apart at the seams

Bassy Tone, but good selection of Amp Models, etc.

By Brent White

from New Westminster, BC

All around the Amp Models are the best feature of this amp, plus it gives a nice clean tone on the main channel. I found though that Ibanez, Vantage, Laguna, and even Gibson are very bassy in this amp. So much so I need to completely swing the Bass nob to 0 and I find it's still to bassy.The Effects are sup-par and your limited to really only a mix of two at most.Line 6 sells much better quality amps just like this one with a much better internal EQ slider.

WTF ????

By KevinB-2gRC4

from st.petersburg, FL

See all my reviews

I bought this amp for my son for Christmas, at first he was very happy but then the thing kept turning off , so we'd put it back on and in a few minutes it would just shut off ?? WE only put the volume up to about 4 at the highest ( this amp is loud enough )but over and over it would just cut out .WE have 2 other Fender amps and this has never happened on either of those- what is the deal ?? Maybe we just got a bad one or this particular model is cheesy, we may return this anf go for the FM212 or 210FM or even drop an extra hundred and get a Marshall half stack .

Great Amp!

By Duckpump

from Los Angeles, CA

I got this amp for my birthday this year, and it is definately the best amp i have ever owned. Any type of distortion you want, this thing can create it, whether it be a light country tone with a little gain on it, or a deep evil grungy tone. Also, every effect you could need is on it, chorus, delay, reverb, flange, tremolo, etc. So if you're thinking about buying this amp, trust me, you won't be disappointed.
