My expensive guitars are in the case. My 50W and 15W amps have a cover. My pedalboard has 13 pedals and is also covered. As you can see, it takes me some time to set everything up before start playing. I decided to buy a cheap guitar and a mini amp that I can leave on the floor or couch, already plugged in, so I can just grab the guitar, turn the amp on and practice for a few minutes everyday.
I ended up buying the Fender package that includes a Squier strat, the Frontman 10G, a clip-on tuner, etc., for only Cdn199. I don't care if they get dust, snow, rain, hurricane..... I now practice everyday.
This amp has a nice clean sound and it is quite loud for its size. It can fit under the bed! The overdrive is ok for a practice amp. It has a 6" speaker in a small enclosure, so do not expect big sounds, obviously. Recommended for bedroom or small studio. Once again, this is a practice amp with a nice Fender sound. Good tool if you play on the streets (I don't). Actually, with the package, it costs less than a mini amp and sounds ten times better.
I've been playing guitar for almost 40 years, so I do appreciate good equipment. You have to be realistic. If you want pro sound, get pro equipment and be prepared to pay for it. This is a good amp for the size and price.

I bought this to replace a Vox AC30 headphone amp that broke the 1st time I dropped the little blighter.. I just cannot get over the noise from my Frontman 10G which I use in my NYC apartment... the problem may be all the transient noise from other electronics but the only way I get a semi usable sound is on clean with my Boss DS-1 in front

The overdrive is woeful but I suppose for the low price paid and its real use this is more than adequate to practice with... I'll be bringing my Mustang II back to use in my apartment and get a Mustang V for the country and this thing will be banished to my closet..

The Mustang II is brilliant BTW

      Comments about Fender Frontman 10G 10W Guitar Combo Amp:

      Right from the get go this sounded horrible. I connected my 1/4" cable and any movement made a static sound. I played a bit and even my friend who knows nothing about amps said it sounded cheap. I agreed and sent it back the following day.

        I did not purchase this amp to play a guitar thru, but rather my iPod out by my pool and BBQ area. It's cute...carbon copy of my big Fender Amps, has great sound and power....perfect for what I was looking for.

          This amp has far too much background hiss. A far better (and more powerful) amp can be had by spending a little bit more.

                  Product works great. The clarity of the clean setting is wonderful. The distortion is not as good as would be ideal, but this is not made for distortion. Easy, portable, clear and strong sound. what more could you want for a home amp? Love it.
