The Fender Frontman 212R Guitar Combo Amplifier packs loads of oomph into a small unit and is Fenders best selling amplifier. Whether you are just learning to play the guitar, or a seasoned player, you are provided with a beautiful tone and enough power to play ensembles or live gigs.

The design of the amplifier has the controls laid out linearly across the top. From left to right are the 1/4 inch jack inputs for you instrument and a pedal. The second input has a pad on it.

On each channel, you will find a three band equaliser and a volume control. You then have overdrive and a contour knob that allows you to shape the mid range and after this, comes a reverb dial for both channels.

On the right hand side of the unit, come the 1/4 inch jack inserts for your footswitch and effects loop (which comes with the Fender Frontman 212R.) There is also a pre out so that you can have a cab or another amplifier being powered or even send a signal to a laptop audio recording system if you wish.

You won't be disappointed with the overall tone of this amp as you certainly get the well known Fender rich, warm sound.

When you use the second (overdrive) channel, you will notice that the response is really tight and you will not need any more pedals as it has enough gain to give real grit to your playing. The reverb section of the amp gives decent colouration of your sound at about the halfway stage on the dial so there is plenty of room for those that like a long reverb tail.

If, like most of us, you want loads of power crammed into a small unit, the Fender Frontman 212R carries the legendary name of Fender with its famous tone. It is even loud when compared to amplifiers with the same power output. Added to this is the included footswitch making this amp easy to use and dial up your settings whilst on stage.

As it is lightweight, but robust, the Fender Frontman 212R is an excellent choice for life on the road and there are straps on the back for your leads so you won't trip over them.

With regards to price, you will have a difficult job trying to find a better amp with this good a tone and in this range that sports such a legendary name than the Fender Frontman 212R Guitar Combo Amplifier.
