Capturing the best qualities of classic Fender sound, but with all the acoutrements of modern tone shaping technology, the Frontman 212R can dish out both the clear and crisp sound for which Fender is known or a huskier distorted sound well suited for more contemporary playing. Either way, this combo amp has enough punch to play a performance or riff through rehearsal.
The quintessential Fender sound is a result of brilliant tube amplification design. While the 212R is in fact a solid state design, it was built with "touch-sensitive" circuity that simulates the sound and feel of a tube amp model, meaning you can get that Fender tone, if you want it. But the 212R has more sonic qualities to offer than just classic mimicry.
With 100 Watts of power coursing through two 12-inch speakers, the Fender Frontman 212R is a viable choice for most small to mid-sized venues, yet it is still quiet and responsive enough to serve as an outstanding practice amp. The ability to serve as both a gigging and practice amp is a boon for beginning players starting on a budget and any player concerned about translating a finely tuned tone from rehearsal to performance. And, at 48 pounds, carrying the 212R from practice garages to clubs and concert halls is very practical.
The 212R's versatility extends to its sonic characteristics, sporting an awe inspiring assortment of tone shaping EQs, effects, and three selectable channels--Normal, Drive, and More Drive. The Normal channel exhibits the distinctly clean sound that made Fender famous. This channel comes with the usual knobs that allow for precise adjustment of low, mid, and treble range outputs. The Drive channel comes with a Drive dial that sets the amount of distortion, making it easy to get just the right level of lowdown dirty growl in the sound. The Drive channel also comes with its own set of bass, mid and treble controls compounding the number of possible tones. The mid-contour button activates a midrange EQ that sings with a more modern distortion sound. The More Drive channel acts as a buffer to the Drive channel increasing its response and intensity across ranges. To make navigating this sea of tonal options easy, Fender has included a footswitch that toggles between the Normal, Drive, and More Drive channels.
But the options and features don't end there. The 212R comes with a reverb dial for more effect choices and PRE OUT and PWR IN jacks for simple effects looping, rigging multiple amps together, recording, or the connection of other various devices of mass destruction.
