Fender Frontman 212R
Released June, 2007
The Pros:Simple operation, not a lot of knobs to have to sort out. Large voice coil cones produce powerful sound. Audio has a warm, punchy tone.
The Cons:Needs to be thoroughly checked when you get it, some quality control issues. No Presence control, could be more penetrating and bright.
The Fender Frontman 212R is a professional-grade, 100W solid-state amp featuring two 12” Special Design speakers. Featured are three channels (clean/drive/extra-drive); an included 2-button, 3-function footswitch; and a wide range of available distortions with the mid contour switch, though most of them are geared for heavy metal.

Unfortunately the amp only has reverb effects, though expert reviews find them to be very impressive. It has also been praised for enhanced distortion, which is useful for multiple genres of music. It’s also durable.
