    It's OK. I got mine in a pack with a Squier strat, which seemed pretty good until I moved up to an Epi Les Paul standard. As for this amp, it works pretty well with what I play, and I tend to play it with a Boss Metal Zone for extra punch. I don't particularly want for more features like reverb, etc. just because it seems like more of a hassle and a distraction to the quality of one's playing. That said, go for it if you're just starting out, but don't be cheap... If you are looking for just a good practice amp, this will probably work if you're like me. Still though, I would recommend saving a bit longer for something better, if not at least bigger. That said, the only problem I have with this amp is an awful buzz that just seemed to appear out of nowhere several months after I got it. I've had it for about a year and a half, and so far that's the only bad thing about it. I can't figure out where it came from, and I know volume can't be an issue because the loudest I've had it is at maybe four. Oh well. I'm looking to move up to something someone can drum with right now. If you decide to get it, good luck.

    I bought this amp for one thing; To plug in and practice at home at a low volume. Theres just one problem, THIS TINY AMP HAS NO LOW VOLUME. You cant even put it past 3 without it shooting ice picks in your ears. And anything above 3 sounds terrible. This amp is WAY too loud for such a small package. I cant find a reasonable low volume with this amp. It doesnt exist. For what this amp is supposed to be intended for, it falls flat. Thumbs down.

    good starter

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is a very good starter amp... i have had mine for a couple years and it brings out the sound in my epiphone lespaul standard. If you are looking for a low budget good sounding amp, wit plenty of overdrive this is the amp for you. But then again the volume is extremely sensitive. great buy

AWESOME SOUND. great amp- i like it.now heres the catch-u may think im a beginer reviewing this--im not. i own a '57 blues re-issue amp, a 250w marshall, a '69 fender princeton (all orig), and a '71 princeton. i have played for 4 years now.great amp

    For beginers

    By ThatGuy-DO71G

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    I got this amp almost a year ago and I think its jusy okay. I absoloutley love the clean tone on it, but the drive isent very good. Theres alot of fuzz, and no matter how quiet you set the volume theres always feedback swelling and making chords practicaly impossible without getting frustrated. It would be a great amp for beginers, or electric acoustics. I preformed with it twice at coffee shops and it was a ittle too quiet, and the sound did'nt stand out very much with the background noise and me singing. But if you want to get your kid a guitar + an amp to jam in there room, I would suggest this and a squier bullet straocaster. But you might want to save a little money if your looking to get serious with your playing.

    I think I got a bad one...

    By PhenderPhanatic312

    from Central Mass.

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    So, after reading some reviews I think I might have just gotten a lemon. But here's my opinion.The clean channel sounds alright. Surprisingly good actually considering its a tiny solid-state amp. It's certainly no Deluxe Hot Rod, but it's not bad at all for the size/price.The drive channel however is HORRENDOUS.first off, the thing is very touchy. Even at low levels of drive, the volume is too low, and then SUDDENLY way too loud. Second, it has a MISERABLE buzz. And i'm not just talking guitar buzz, I mean solid state fuzziness-buzz sort-of superimposed on whatever you're playing. Not very pleasing. By the way, I should add, I'm not using some crappy guitar: I have a Deluxe Nashville Tele.End of the day, I'll just say, if you're just starting guitar, maybe you buy this amp. In the price range though, I'd suggest the Marshall MG 10. You'd probably be better off because it doesn't have the same drive problem seen here.

    The best for what it is at the price

    By mikkid

    from San Francisco, CA

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    Im a guitar teacher, kids aged K- 8th grade at a small school in SF. I have at least 30 students a week, half have electric guitars.this amp is on and used a lot! it is also knocked down and bumped into by the kids a lot. its also a practice amp that is great for our small school shows. if you want that in an amp, it is tough, durable & reliable and has a decent enough Fender sound. if you want a bigger better amp spend more money and get it. Im finally replacing the ones we have for 6+ years already, (one still works perfectly fine ).for what it is and its advertised for the price its a good amp.

    Good to Bad

    By Vexaus

    from Washington DC

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp with my Squier strat. At first it was great. A couple months later the amp started having volume issues. One second it would be blissfully soft and the other it'd be roaring loud. It has a great tone but the drive isn't that good. Occasionally when I hit the "Drive Select" button the amp would make a screeching high pitch sound. I don't know if my settings did that or if it was broken. Another time the amp wouldn't produce sound. All in all the amp is only good for a few months but if you can afford this one I recommend the 10g Fender Frontman for less and better reliability.

    Go for the II model if you want a fender 15...

    By Startingsomething

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    The Fender Frontman 15 amp,was my first amp, I bought it when I bought my First electric (Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus)At the time, all it had to do was make it so I could hear the guitar when playing over any background noise- and for simple noise making its fine, however that's about it. Its tone is... decent(ish) but only at the higher volumes, which are somewhat useless, as unless you're playing with a band, are not needed, and when you are in a band, they aren't loud enough- and still don't sound great. Features... pretty much, suck. You get distortion, a gain, volume, bass, mid, and treb, dial, and that's the amp. As of now, when I play at home, I use my rythmn guitarists old Xbrand 15 (basicly a fender am without an F on the front, all the parts are made by fender...) Its got better tone overall, and gives more precise controls over it, and it also has reverb. that said, its no longer made. I would reccomend for this size of amp to go with a line six spyder II, or the frontman 15 II (personally I would take the frontman, I have all the effects that I use in my stomp boxes, so the build in just get annoying...)

    Would the third amp stay alive?

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    I've went through 2 of these amps and I'm not about to go through a third. I don't know if it's just my bad luck or what. This was my first amp, so it was definitely a beginner's amp. If I were you, I'd buy at least a 25w, unless you know you aren't going to stick to the guitar.

    By Fender Lover-rn5TM

    Comments about Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Combo Amp:

    This amp is pretty good if you are starting out. If you are by yourself. If you are in a band with a loud drummer loud vocalist and maybe a other guitar no one will be able to hear you. If you are looking for an amp to be heard in a loud band i would suggest the fender frontman 212r. Also is would suggest the 212r if you plan on playing a show. Don't get me wrong this amp is great for playing I mean i still use it on my own time as a starter amp I would highly suggest it.
