Best practice amp for the price out thereYou get a 10" speaker and separate drive control volume with this amp; try to find
those two capabilities in another amp for around $90.00!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is by far the best practice amp I have found in the past 10 years and I own
a butt load of new amps.
I use this amp and an old Fender G-Dec 15 side by side for practice as the G-Dec has a
great metronome and simple backing loops that come in handy.
Don't even think about it, this is the amp you want for practice unless you are looking
for a gadget filled amp, and in that case you should look elsewhere, as this one is for
turning on and going for it and not fiddling around with digital controls until you have
just lost most of your practice time.

Sounds like a Fender!I play a wide variety of music, mostly clean, so I can't give much of an opinion on this amps distortion. I have had an eye on these for a while. I love the sound of the Fender amps of the 60's/70's and wanted something a little easier to carry than what I was playing through ( I am aged and disabled). I had read and 'youtubed' many reviews on these little amps and wondered if they had the 'Fender' sound (they do) and if they would keep up with the 'big dogs' at a loud jam session (they do). My Sweetwater sales rep called on Wed. to check in and offered me a deal I could not pass up. I had it in hand at 2pm Friday. I went to a jamb session last night with over 20 musicians, as could be expected it got loud. I had no trouble being heard. My only regret is that I did not buy one a long time ago. Love it!

Phenominal for the Price !I swapped a used, Line 6 Spider IV75 at a un named Competitor today, for one of these . Mine is in Texas Red, which is what I requested, after all, I do like to do things differently. Anyway, when I got this baby home, I was blown away at the sound and tone, and not to mention how loud this is , for a 25 watt combo. I'm sure I could use this at a small gig with no problem at all. Maybe down the line, I might change the speaker but for now, I'm perfectly happy with it just the way it is. I absolutely love this amp and it isn't going anywhere.

Great value for $100Can't get over the bang for the bucks...swapped out the stock speaker with a Rajin Cajin Eminence 10" speaker and got blown out of the room. This is a great practice amp, especially for the money. I got the red version, and it spoils me for regular black. No need for more power, as I can't play it over volume 4 setting anyway, at least in practice. The Gain is lethal. Highly recommend changing out the speaker...I put it in a separate box and...wow!

Great Little AmpBought one of these after first purchasing a Mustang II amp. This is far, far superior. Simple, straightforward. it does one thing and does it well ... its a guitar amp. No effects (the Mustang II effects leave much to be desired). No bells or whistles. I love this little bugger.

More than just a practice amp!I've owned this amp for five years, and she still amazes me. Great clean channel, spring reverb, etc,. etc., what more could you ask for? I paid $130.00 in 2005, and now they're selling them for $99.00? Buy it now for crying out loud!!

FENDER!; The BEST deal and SOUND in small solid state amps.I am going to get me one of these babies within the next couple of
weeks. I have the same amp in 15watt/ 8"speaker version and it's
bulletproof; sounds like a tube amp; fells like a tube amp to your fingers(believe me, I own many expensive tube amps from various
ALSO!!! Sweetwater has the most patient, friendly and knowledgeable
staff ANYWHERE!!! My rep is Maynard Madsen and He goes to GREAT
lengths to satisky or to find a hard--to-get piece of gear or a part.

Love My Frontman 25R!This is a great little amp. The Cean channel sounds terrific with my new Candy Apple Red Fender Standard Stratocaster. The three band tone controls go a long way towards giving me a great sound. The Drive channel takes a little tweaking to get it sounding good, but I think I am very near what I need out if it. She sounds great for all kinds of music and is powerful enough to really raise a ruckus if I wanted to. Two thumbs up!

Fender Frontman 25 RThis is a great amp! Great clean and OD. This is a basic no frills amp. It's very loud. There's a little hiss though. The hiss gets louder as the volume is increased. Good reverb. I agree with another reviewer- it does sound like a tube amp. Good buy. This amp also sounds great on my A/E.

Nice practice ampI wasn't expecting much. I just wanted a decent little practice amp. But I was pleasantly surprised by the tone. It has nice Fender cleans. For the price (and for a SS amp) I'm really happy with it!

An okay amp, not greatI was pretty excited after having tried this out in a local store with a identical model guitar to the one I own. However, once I ordered and received it, what I'd heard before and what I heard coming out of mine were much different. The one I demoed sounded nice and warm, but this sounded very harsh. Could be that the one I tried had been broken in some, but no amount of playing through mine mellowed the harshness I was hearing. I will say the clean sound through this amp was excellent, so if you are playing a more clean style, this would probably work wonders for a practice amp. The line out, headphone jack and line in jacks are a nice addition. Also, the reverb works well. My suggestion would be if you want distortion with this amp, use your favorite pedal in front of it.
