"Best $99.99 Combo Today!"
This is a very underrated amp for the money. It has that classic Fender clean tone that we've all come to love, and right away, I was able to pull off some blues and country riffs with both my Fender Strat and my Epiphone Les Paul Studio. The Treble and Reverb though, can be a little bit overpowering so,I don't put them any higher than 4. The distortion is IMO, very underrated also. If you take a little bit of patience and do some experimenting with the EQ, you'd be surprised at how heavy you can make the gain on this amp sound. Maybe I got lucky but I was able to crank mine up to 6 without the speaker breaking up on me.
I love the classic Blackface look with the silver Fender logo embossed in the left hand corner. I do wish though that the clean channel had more settings, but for the price, I really can't complain. For a 25 watt combo, this amp is LOUD!
Ease of Use:
It only took me a couple of minutes to familiarize myself with this amp. It's not exactly rocket science y'know!
I couldn't find any faults with this amp at all. It seems to be a very well made product, although only time will tell. I do baby my gear and this is only going to be used for home practice, so it should be okay.
Fender's customer support has alway's been very accessable as far as I'm concerned, and easy to deal with.
The best $99.99 solid state combo amp that you can get today. This is great for a beginner and is good for home use, recording, and even for small gigs.
The Wow Factor:
C'mon, it's a Fender! How could you not want it!
This is not going anywhere. I'm even thinking about getting rid of my Crate GTD120 and replacing it with the larger Frontman 65R combo. That's how great this amp sounds.
