    This is a nice clean little amp, Perfect for practice...NOT made for gigging but perfect for practice. Outstanding Reverb...May replace speaker but not bad as is. Worth every penny! The Red is very cool looking.

    Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought one of these 2 weeks ago to replace my Fender Champion 30 which pretty much died out on me. When it came in, the sound quality was not what I expected. Sure the clean was great but, it broke up at high volumes and something needed to be done, so I went out and bought a brand new Eminence Rajun Cajun 10" Speaker. After installing it, it was as if I had just recieved a brand new amp. The difference in both sound and volume was very noticeable with the new speaker. The sound and tone on both channels was much more pronounced and clearer, and did not break up at high volumes , which is very important to me. Plus the volume on this now sounds more like a 50 watter instead of a 25 watt combo amp. IMO, Fender should make these Eminence Rajun Cajun speakers a mandatory part of these FM 25R combo amps. Id they do, I guarantee they'll sell much faster.

      Needed an amp for my home to play guitar with friends. Has enough power and the reverb is great. Can't beat the price anywhere.

      Frontman 25R Outstanding

      By Richard Carew

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I bought the Frontman 25R because of the price and the reviews. I'm glad I did. The volume never gets beyond a 3 in my bedroom. I play a Guild acoustic electric that is all solid wood, even the bindings are wood and the tone is outrageous, but a little rough through this stock speaker so I think I'll install a Ragin Cajun to mellow the sound and fill it out a bit. But I am 100% satisfied with this amp. If you're wondering whether to step up to the plate on this amp, you get more than your money's worth out of it. So buy it today.

      Frontman 25R

      By debraehart

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I own 2 of these. They are not red, but they are the earlier black versions. These amps have an awesome Fender clean tone! If you want to make this amp even better, upgrade the speaker to a Jensen 10Q. That's what I did to both of mine. The upgrade made this amp sound like a much more expensive amp. I use these amps twice a week, every week at church. I mic them. My sound man loves me because he can control my sound in the room. I am happy because the sound is so awesome and they are good used that way for "monitors".
      In the almost 8 years I've had mine, they have never needed to be serviced. Just be careful not to stomp on your cord, and be careful transporting the amp and you will be fine.
      Incidentally, I paid more for this for each of mine. This price for this red one is a STEAL!!!! If Fender offers a blue one, I'll buy 2 more, for sure.

      Great Clean Sound (Potentially)

      By Jimmy Felson-BMpd8

      from Oakland, CA

      Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This thing has the potential to have a great clean sound...although, the amp sounds pretty sterile and lifeless right out of the box. Try replacing the stock speaker with an Eminenece Delta Demon to warm and fatten the tone. With the new speaker, the amp should get a nice, organic, blackface-type clean sound.

      Cool little amp

      By Ken-SsjZb

      from Norwalk, CA

      Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Got this with the intent on keeping it in office where I work or just having a choice in small amps around for small gigs. I also have a Vox Pathfinder that works well for small gigs where volume levels are an issue. The 25R fits the bill nicely but there is one problem. The factory speaker sucks. It's way too harsh sounding. Found a review where someone suggested replacing it with an Eminence 1058 Legend 10". This made a huge difference and is cheaper than the Ragin Cajun, also a good choice. Once the speaker is replaced you have an awesome little amp fully capable of doing small clubs for about $150. Get one!

      Got this as an inexpensive home amp for electric mandolin. I was worried that I should have ponied up for an acoustic amp . . . this this red beauty does the trick. Amazing value and exactly what I needed.

      Texas Heat

      By Doyle Laws

      from Missouri

      Comments about Fender 25R Frontman Series II 25W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I bought this amp for the cd line in and the color and was pleasantly surprized. I own a Marshall jtm 30, a Marshall Haze 40c a Peavey classic 20 and the Texas red can hang in there with em. Actually got a lot more clean headroom than the classic. The reverb is sweet on this amp,reminds me of the vintage fender reverb of the past. It has a two spring ruby tubes reverb. The sound is alot brighter than the others. I run my lap steel thru this in a four piece band though it sounds just as good with my tele,strat and paul. For a 25 watt transistor its as loud as the 15 watt Peavey tube maybe louder. Just use the tone stacks to dail in your sound and your could to go. Best buy and all purpose amp around plus it looks hot.
