Let me start off with saying this is not for the metal enthusiasts. This amp for 15 watts is incredible. Will jamming with a couple of friends and his 75 watt I was able to compete for a good while! The options on it aren't the greatest though. There really is no middle ground I've found in the 2 years I had it. Its more of pretty good clean or pretty good distortion if you set it up right. For jazz and blues this amp is the way to go if your on a budget, BUT for metal and heavier stuff you better off with something like a Line 6 for those deeper clearer distortions. This amp has gone for miles in the back trunk with stuff, and ended up in the weirdest places and situations but has held up through it all! So to cap it off, think about what you need to play cause this amp can feel constrictive. Good luck!

Not worth it. For about $100 there are plenty of superior options out there. Like its big brother the Frontman 25R, the Fender 15R is a member of the newer "Series II" incarnation of the Fender Frontman practice amps. The 15R is a solid state amp with a pretty standard set of features, including distortion, EQ, reverb, and jacks for headphones and CD players. The 25R, which doesn't cost much more, is a decent amp, is solidly built, can get quite loud for its size and power rating, and has a pretty good clean sound. The 15R, however, just doesn't cut it. It has a weak clean sound, rather useless reverb, and horrible fuzzy distortion. There are plenty of better options for the same amount of money, including the Vox Pathfinder 15R, the Roland Cube amps, the Behringer GM110 and GM108, the Vox DA5, or the Roland Microcube.

Good beginner's amp

By Jose Arias

from Lawrenceville, GA

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

The people that give a bad review of this amp obviously have something better and are not creating a fair comparison. This is a beginner's amp. Having stated that, this is probably one of the best small amps you can get, specially for the price. The overdrive is nice. The built-in equalizer does its job, and the reverb is responsive. Loud enough for a small venue. The aux input is probably the nicest feature of the amp, which allows you to play with pre-recorded beats or your ipod. The only reason why I don't give it a 5-star rating is because the headphone jack died on me: it only sends signal to the right side (it's not the headphones, I checked already). I am planing on replacing it though.

Great amp for learning / Practice

By Chris

from Spokane Washington

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

I am teaching myself how to play guitar. I purchased the 15G for my son and even though this was a really good amp I knew it wouldn't satisfy myself. With the gain and reverb settings you have some good flexibility for the sound. This amp definitely has enough output for someone like myself that is playing in my own house. I have not even come close to getting this amp turned up. I have been using this amp for a couple of weeks with a minimum of an hour a day use, and so far can't find anything to dislike about it. Overrall even though I am a beginner I am 100% satisfied with this product.

Excellent Little Amp

By Don

from Spokane, WA

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

My son tried this out at GC over the 4th of July weekend and simply had to have it (despite the fact that we've already got six other amps ranging from 25 to 100 watts). I'm a bit of sucker for fender products so he didn't have to work me too hard to get me to spring for this thing. After getting it home, let me say that I was very pleasantly surprised at the capabilities of this little "starter" amp. It puts out some great tones and the reverb sounds great. I love the fact that you can upgrade to the reverb model (15R vs. 15G) for a mere ten bucks - Great Deal. Don't be fooled by the small size of this amp, it puts out alot of volume. It's quite a bit louder than my son's Marshall MG30FX which has to be mic'ed to be heard over the drums. This little fender can hold it's own against the drums quite easily. For eighty bucks, this thing is a bargain. Best bang for the buck in our little stable of amps. Highly recommended!

Awesome little Amp!!!

By Ed

from High Desert, CA

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

I really like this little amp! I built myself a kit guitar, and needed something to play it on. I didn't want to spend a whole bunch of money, because I don't know if I'll ever join a band or do public performances yet. The built-in distortion is a really nice feature. It's not as extensive and adjustable as a pedal, but gives you the the Metal sound If you are a beginner, or just want something for your own enjoyment, you really can't go wrong here!!

READ!

By jarvis.

from bridgewater, New Jersey

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

Dont really listen to the other people. This amp is really good and it is cheap. obviously its not going to have crazy good features. also the gain on it is really good considering its only 15w. dont think 15w isn't a lot because it goes really loud and clear. It is worth the price if you want a good practice amp. This amp is mad for like basic punk rock not metal. if people want to plat metal they can go for it but it wont sound like you want it too.

Disappointment

By Angry in S.D.

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp to practice at home, I wanted something quiet so I can play my blues-y R&B and not upset my wife. I never went above 4 on the volume, and have kept it in the closet when not in use. the 3-4th time I turned it on, it began making a buzzing sound that does not go away. It lead a very pampered and short life. Take my advice and avoid this at all costs. Spend a few dollars more and get somehthing better.

Good for Intended Use

By Jim Hauer

from Iowa

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

It is what it is, a warm-up and practice amp. I use it at home to simply practice. I like having headphones so as not to bother the kids late at night. I also run rythmn tracks I have recorded through the inputs and play along, a nice easy feature. I don't believe I have ever cranked the volume to higher then 4 or 5 so I've not been in danger of blowing any fuses or having the trouble expressed by other reviewers. I did gig with this once in a very small venue and it performed well, but I have a Fender Deluxe that I use for regular gigs. For something small to have on hand for quick practice sessions, this is more then adequate at a good price.

STOP, DROP, AND DON'T BUY THIS AMP!

By Jake

from Louisville Kentucky

Comments about Fender 15R Frontman Series II Guitar Combo Amp:

I didn't have a very good amp at all, and wanted a smaller amp with some NICE clean tone and serious reverb. I needed something really cheap and heard this was great. I got it and, at first, it was alright..then after about two minutes, you forget it even HAS reverb! It is really a terrible buy, even if you want something cheap and now...DO NOT BUY IT! Save up your money and play your guitar with no amp for a while. It will really be worth a nice tube amp, TRUST ME. This amp only sounds somewhat okay when you crank it really loud, but then it breaks up real bad, and eventually blows up. Once you go to the store and play a nice tube amp, even a cheap one, you'll get terribly bored of yours in about 2 minutes. Don't make the same mistake I did in buying this amp.
