    I think that whatever the style of music the sound is not better because it is so rotten with frying all the time the first time that I lit I thought my jack so there was debranch had fried once the hue reverb is better but its really remainder desire the distortion is unmanageable the equalizer does not really responds to hand to add aggressive treble. And the little hp is struggling a bass reproduction when pushed volume.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 3 months now
    I had the opportunity to try a T25R Ibanez and Peavey envoy 110 II with a friend and it has nothing to see
    I am very disappointed in this amp too much breath to draw something

    I do not redo the caracs everything has been said.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple configuration
    One can easily get a sound ... it is not good but good when you start who cares.

    SOUNDS

    Clean sound is nice when it starts.
    on the other hand with ear training you realize that the sound does not really emotional.
    I also find that spending 5 on the gain decays completely sound.
    This amp will not honor a good shovel.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 5 years, 4 years there is no point me in troubleshooting or travel for work, I replaced daily by a Vox AC4TV and there was a beautiful sound.
    It is convenient to take. It offers good power.
    Drive knob getting tired not evil against

    I had taken in a pack to start.
    What I like most: Its impact resistance!
    what I like least: the sound
    A little expensive for this type of stuff.

    I buy it because I need one small but good amplifier quickly.

    Basically the sound, it sound very loud and good to be an 15 watts amplifier. I recommend to everyone that need something good. It have an excelent overdrive with a clear reverb effect. The clean channell sounds to good so playing blues never have being a problem to me.

    Sometimes I dont feel the reverb, and when the ampli is hitten by something it sounds cool! but that sound dont convince me.

    It have a nice construction.

    It is a good amplifier for anyone who is begginig and it sounds pretty fuckin good.

    Fender FM 15RPublished on 10/01/03 at 15:00
    I bought two of these at The Guitar Center, and paid $99.00 each.

    This is a great little amp. Looks good, and sounds good. Has an overdrive channel that is fun to fool around with.

    Then I discovered something when I purchase the second unit. My first Frontman 15R was made in Indonesia, and my second Frontman 15R was made in China.

    Indonesia model: The black vinyl covering has the same texture as my vintage Fender Amp, and the bright white lettering on the black face looks like the great too.

    China model: The black vinyl is smoother, and the white lettering is more like grey lettering. So the China model doesn't look as "classic" as the Indonesia model.

    China model: The black vinyl is smoother, and the white lettering is more like grey lettering. So the China model doesn't look as "classic" as the Indonesia model.

    Indonesia model: Seems to pickup more hum and radio frequency interference. This is especially true when using the reverb. In fact, I can't even use the reverb because of the extra noise.

    China model: Clear as can be. I can turn the reverb up to "10" and I can't hear ANY hum or RFI.



    I pulled off the back covers on both, and notice the China reverb unit looks more like my old Princton Reverb unit. Solid. The Indonisia model is in clear plastic, and looks cheap. The China unit uses "chokes" on the wires to minimize RFI, but the Indonisia model does not use ANY chokes.



    Both models are great little amps for fooling around without making too much racket. The Indonisian model looks better, in my opinion, but the China model sounds better because it doesn't pick up any radio frequency interference. Both seem to have some punch to them that is impressive for such a small amp.

    came in a budget pack with a quality Bulletstrat made by fender squier. Paid £200 for both.

    Umm.. I quite like the red light specially in the dark.. umm i look the old look.. I also like the crappy quality.. specially the clean sound. Sounds kinda distorted..

    Ok... First its shit..
    also.. the clean sound.. is kinda crap...
    the overdrive.. is kinda crappy and always has a buzzing noise when loud.. umm reverb sucks.. when you put it half way it starts to make the most annoying ringing sound..
    so.. basically the worst amp I've owned. I mean I've got like 10 amps, and if it were my first amp I'd probably think."yeah this things kool".. but it sucks so there.

    Well its made by fender........

    Well its made by fender.. yeah.. and kit sucks cos its color is gay and its heavy for what it is.. what a piece of shit.
    I feel sorry for all those idiots who have it and think its good... get a marshall.

    It sucks.. Don't even consider it or think about it..

    I acquired this unit from a Sam Ash store, it was actually a gift to me. I was just started to play guitar, and I needed a decent amp to learn on.

    This unit serves its purpose as a practice amp. Its got all of the essential functions on it, plus reverb. The sound is pretty good also. It features 2 channels, distorted and clean

    When turned up loud, amp sounds too fuzzy and distorted. (mainly due to the fact that it only has a 12 inch speaker.) It does not sound good when cranked up loud, so dont buy this expecting it to deliver wonderful sound when cranked up all the way. When the reverb is put on over half way, I get a loud ringing noise, so i cant put reverb on over half way.

    Very nicely built, strong design. However, my input seemed to have chipped off somewhat.

    If you are starting guitar, and you want a quality amp to practice on, this is beyond perfect. If you want a gigging amp, get a larger amp.

    I paid $180 for this amp in Jan. 2002 at long and mcquade so the price is canadian. It is my first amp so i bought the cheapest amp i could buy with a descent name.

    Small, doesnt way much. Has two channels and reverb. Quality construction.

    Buzzes, has a raspy tone when i hit certain strings (This may be due to my guitar), tone could be better.

    Black vynal finish, durable, steel proliferated grill, 15 lbs or so, small.

    I bought it as my first amp. Sounds awful really, especially after getting a tube amp, but you get what you pay for. Dont expect much from this amp unless you just wanna play or have become recently tone deaf. I would not buy this again, i would take the two......

    Guitar Center Rochester, NY - walk in purchase. Knowledgeable enthusaistic staff. Paid $89

    Unbelievably clean tone. This little box really fills the house with sound. Its a perfect practice amp with plenty of features like RCA jacks to pipe in CD or effects.

    Well, its not a 12 inch speaker, but hey, 12 inch is too loud for the house...

    Very solid, beautiful craftsmanship. Nice lines, easy to work.

    Had another amp, returned it, got the Fender 15R, love it.

    I purchased this amp from Hollowood Music in Pittsburgh PA. It was $120.00 plus tax.
    I bought this amp because the one I was borrowing needed returned, and I am still learning so a small inexpensive amp was the choice.

    The amp has 2 channels. Basic controls plus reverb. The clean channel sounds really good. It is 15W thru an 8in speaker, and ways 15 pounds. A nice little amp for carrying over to friends house and/or just practicing at home.

    The "dirty" channel kind of buzzez alot with the knobs turned way up, but this may be because of my guitar, I'm not sure yet.

    The construction of this amp seems very good. It comes with a 5 year warranty from the manufacturer. It came out of the box looking perfect.

    This amp is working great for me so far. As I progress eventually I will want a bigger amp, but this one will always have a place at my house. It is a good deal for the amount of amp you get.
