    Small but powerful

    Great price, great amp. Our son has been playing for 6 years and wanted a more portable amp. It doesn't do the different distortions that his bigger amp does but he was still very surprised at how powerful it is.

    Fender Frontman 10G

    great little amp and I can plug my phone in directly to play off youtube. Great product for the money!!!

  • from South Park CO April 16, 2016

    OH YEAH!!!

    I traded a buddy for a 10g, 15 watt rumble, and a Yamaha fg kid sized acoustic. Mostly I wanted the fg for a friends 2.5 year old little girl. During a break in rehearsal I plugged my Epi Les Paul Special 1 into this little gem. I dialed in some clean tone and it sounded decent. The real surprise came When I dialed in the drive channel and set the volume on 9,Our drummer(who is annoyingly good on most instruments) was drawn right back in to our studio. HIs eyes popped out of his noggin when he saw the 10g parked in front of my Princeton Chorus(great sleeper amp for little money). Then his jaw dropped when I told him "no pedals" just straight into the amp. Well he held his hands out like a kid on xmas so I went to the kitchen while he ripped some fusion and blues. Our lead player got a huge smile when I told him it was the frontman. I have a ton of gear from cheap to moderately priced. The tone I got from this setup was good enough to be mic'd and put through a pa. As good as my American deluxe stat thru my blues deville 410, not hardly. In terms of value it is good enough to where I am looking for a speaker upgrade, as the stock one is sure to receive more abuse than it can take.

    Awesome Amp at a Great Price

    Love the size of this amp and the quality. It's portable, has great sound quality and looks pretty sick. Plus it was at a good price point. On top of this, we got amazing customer service. Must buy.

    Fender Frontman

    This little amp is remarkable! It's a perfect practice amp. I also own a Mustang IV which is also a fantastic amp. But I like to use the Frontman when I just want to plug in and play. Perfect cleans and surprising crunch from this little guy!

    Fender Frontman amp

    I was looking for a good practice amp, nothing special, got the Fender Frontman was more than I expected. Great sound, good volume no buzz perfect for my use. Sweetwater's sales and delivery just added to my pleasure.

    Perfect for My Needs

    This little amp exactly suits my needs. It's small and easy to tote around, but it's amazingly powerful, and delivers a clean, crisp sound when I play my acoustic-electric through it. I play in a small venue, and it's loud enough to play along with an electric piano and electric guitar and still be heard. Best of all, it's the perfect practice amp. But the BEST part of my purchase was Sweetwater's legendary customer service. This is first order from Sweetwater, and though I've heard of their excellence, this is the first time I experienced it myself. Dylan, my personal Sales Engineer, patiently and fully answered my many questions, and he made great recommendations. Best of all, the amp arrived just a few days after I ordered it -- and that's despite a 30" snowstorm! I'd recommend this amp, and I especially recommend Sweetwater for all your music needs.

    great amp

    Fender Front man 10G 10-Watt

    Superb service, delivery promptness and phenomenal sound from such a small amp. Completely satisfied in all ways. Customer service even calls after you've received your purchase to ensure you're satisfaction. Who does that anymore! ! Blown away is correct!

    Perfect little am for practice or a beginning musician. Can't believe such clear and powerful sounds come from such a compact amp. My niece loves it!.

    What a Great Little Amp!

    This little amp packs a lot of power in a mighty small package. True, compared to my Champion 40 it just doesn't have the power to compete, but it's a tough call when deciding on a practice amp between this and the Champion 20. The 20 has more features (and twice the power) however this little dynamo sounds great, really surprises you in overdrive and is extremely portable, making it a wonderful practice amp.
    No you won't quite get the same volume you get from a Champion 20, but you get as much volume as you will need in a practice amp. The 'overdrive' basically is an on/off switch for the gain, which you can increase or decrease using a rotary knob. I really love the bright, clear, clean sound that this amplifier provides with the overdrive button in the 'off' position, but it's also a lot of fun to turn on the overdrive, turn up the gain and play a little Hendrix.
    In power, sound quality and overall quality of this little amplifier is actually quite amazing.
    In fact it is hard to believe this little guy only packs a six inch speaker - as the Frontman 10 packs some big sound.
    Great for the bedroom, office, basement or to carry to lessons. And at this price you will be very pleased. The Frontman 10 is a Fender product, and this little guy is built with the same great quality as the big Fender amps. I've yet to own a Fender product that I haven't really enjoyed, and this amp is no exception. In fact although I also own two larger & more expensive amplifiers, the Frontman 10 is the amplifier I enjoy using the most, due to it's crystal clear, clean, bright sound - it's actually quite extraordinary in an amp of this size. I highly recommend this amp!

  • from New York January 25, 2012

    Absolutely Perfect

    Fender is a well known reliable name in the business and certainly holds true for this amp. The value for the reasonable cost exceeds my expectations and you won't be disappointed. The case is well made and could withstand a lot of abuse, Excellent product, two thumbs up !!!

    Fender Frontma 10G

    Sounds great with my MIM Fender Strat. Its loud enough to cut through an acoustic guitar, but also has the backing in the bass department to feel substantial. Great electric guitar amp.

  • from July 24, 2011Music Background:

    Solid Product

    Competitive Pricing. It has great range, I've cranked it up and have experience no static or rattling, compact and portable. Audio Remains Clear even in overdrive. This is a great product made by a notable company, and sold for a reasonable price by a AAA Retailer. FIVE STARS.

    A fine little practice amp

  • from Illinois July 23, 2016


    A compact amp that fits perfectly in my cramped music room. It's my very 1st ever electronic purchase for my 1st ever electric guitar, and the price was within my budget. I'm not an over-powering guitar player by any means, so this amp has exactly all that I need.

  • from Florida April 23, 2016

    fender front man amp

    Yeah, great little practice amp for under 100 dollars. Very light weight but solid. Plugged in an acoustic electric and also a les paul, it does them justice. For its size, it's loud and clear but mine has an audible "click" when pushing the gain button but dial gain control down then turn back up after you press the button. Highly recommend for just about any small event.

  • from Melbourne, FL December 26, 2015

    Great sound and quality in a small amp

    My son got his first electric guitar for Christmas and we bought this amp to accompany it. It has such clear sound. Nice volume to it as well. Very pleased with it!! Will recommend to others for sure.

    Baby Fender

    It's the tiniest Fender I've ever seen (or played) but it's still a Fender. I used a twin reverb for over 30 years with my explorer and had the nastiest sound you can imagine without any modern wave shaping doo-dads. This one will never take the place of that twin but it's a great little practice amp and I can actually carry it alone (by the time I got to be 50 I had to beg my daughters to help me carry the twin - ha, ha). The controls are simple so it's pretty easy to dial in an acceptable sound and the naughty button roughs up things plenty good enough for practicing. I haven't tried it with my acoustic yet (I'm not even sure why I would, probably just curious) but it works fine with my electric and also for practicing my bass at low volumes.

  • from Colorado March 20, 2017


    The sound from the amp seemed good to me. But the amp is a present to my grand daughter. So I have to hear back from her about it for her opinion.

  • from Fredericksburg, VA February 24, 2017Music Background:

    You get what you pay for but that's not so nad

    I bought this for my nine year old daughter who finally decided she wanted to learn to play. It's a great little practice amp for the price and good for any beginner. The drive is horrid as you can imagine but has a decent clean tone.

    Again, for the money you can't beat it for a small practice amp.

    practice amp

    This fender front man 10 was just what I needed. With a large family I needed a small amp for my bedroom for privacy. The kicker was that it has a headphone jack for my late night or early morning practice. Just enough power and cam handle a pedal of my choosing.

    Great amp in a tiny package!

    I'm a bass player with a massive bass rig - this guy is used to add some grind to my tone, and also to add some boost. it more than holds it's own for that purpose - the most impressive 10 watts I've ever experienced.

    Gets the job done

    This little SS amp is going on vacation with me so I can keep practicing. Checked it out and it does what I expect. Loud enough to annoy people in the same house but nice and clean. It takes my pedals well despite not having a loop. I did not expect to get a loop at this price point. Definitely NOT for gigging, though it might do a small coffee house type thing. If it lasts a couple years with modest usage, I'd say it's a great buy.
