Swith position doesnt change anything and it seems like switch is OK. The all black version of the Fender frontman which is only cosmetically different then the silverface once from Fender that you would normally see.

The Fender Frontman R is a guitar combo amplifier on the low end of the spectrum for Fender amps.

It’s solid as a rock and looks awsome. Contact the manufacturers customer service department for the schematic. Same lame features of terrible sounding solid state manuao. If you do not know how to do this, you’re best taking it to a repair shop.

Very loud, definately loud enough for a small to medium sized gig two overdrive settings “drive” and “more drive” two 12″ speakers footswitch included two inputs one for passive pickups, and one for active pickups Very sensitive EQ Separate EQs for clean and gain channel Mid Contour switch for boosting mids Very good price for such msnual good amp!

Answered on Mar 08, If the amp cuts out sharply I would suspect that: Another great thing about this amp is how sensitive the EQ is, the slightest turn on the treble knob is noticable in the sound, I’m saying that there is a difference between mamual you EQ set up as fenser This amp also comes with a two button footswitch, the first button switches between clean and dirty channels, and the second button switches between “drive” and “more drive”.


It is good if you want to use it to boost solos or leads, as it is louder and has a little more fuzz on it. Treble, Mid, Bass; Ch 2: Pull the chassis out and look closely for any breaks in the circuit board.

Posted on Apr 07, Be the first to answer. What is this amp The clean sounds decent but god lord this amp is terrible!!

It does indeed sound like the power amp section. It takes pedals extremely bad and guitar sound like your playing hasn’t improved since you first picked up a dusty acoustic guitar.

Honestly, if you are looking for a first gigging amp, or any gigging amp, i suggest you buy this beast. Answered on Apr 18, It sounds horrible with any guitar and and effect pedal you put through it. Answered on Oct 20, Answered on Mar 04, Answer questions, earn mznual and help others Answer questions. Bad solder joint on circuit board 4.

Switching from “drive” to “more drive” channels increases the volume It’s pretty heavy 48 lbs.

What could be wrong? And I’m very glad that I decided on this one rather then a Marshall MGDFX half stack that would have cost more then double the price of this one, and probably wouldn’t have given a much better tone anyway. You can practice and gig with this awsome amp. Fendeg channels also have a Mid-contour switch that lets you dial in the perfect tone for any knid of music.


I have been trying to wrap my head around why Fender would market this product and I can’t come to any conclusion. Posted on Jan 15, Be the first to answer. Uhuh, this is a pretty good amp to me. This will happen rather my guitar is plugged in or not. Power it up outside of the case and if it cuts out again, check for voltages at the finals, You should be close to 48 volts from chassis ground to the high side power rails of maanual finals.

The reverb is nice to have but again isn’t the best of it’s kind. Our members also liked: It’s not that great sounding of an amp, but who expects it to be at dollars?

If 212 aren’t extremely happy with the tone you’ve got, this amp is going to be tough to get a good sound out of. Then trace it back to the problem.

I didn’t give this an unusable rating since it does have a Fender clean tone, but if you want any amount of distortion then throw this thing off fendwr roof and buy a Roland amp modeler or a Line 6. You should see about 48 volts across each cap.

Also, the EQ controls are pretty weak, and they don’t go very far at all in shaping the tone.
