When it comes to guitar amplifiers, guitarists have four styles from which to choose: tube amps, hybrid amps, digital modeling amps, and solid-state amps. While the first three have their positives, they are also quite costly, while solid-state amps such as the Fender Frontman 212R are ideal for the budget-conscious player who still wants to receive clear, sharp sounds from his or her choice of amp. Although solid-state amps lack the warm sound that a tube amp or hybrid amp delivers, or the precise sound a digital modeling amp delivers, solid-state amps deliver a lot of crunch for the buck. Frontman 212R amps offer 100 watts of output going into 4 ohms, which splits between two 50-watt, 12-inch speakers. The amp offers three selectable channels, namely normal, drive, and more drive, as well as dedicated tone and volume controls for each channel. The normal channel controls volume, treble, and bass while the drive channel handles volume, drive, treble, mid, bass, and reverb. It also comes with power amp in and preamp out effects loops. Most Frontman 212R models have a textured black vinyl case connected with silver grille cloth covering the front with chrome control knobs. Some older Fender Frontman 212 amplifiers have red cases, and both versions are available as part of the large inventory of guitar amps on eBay. For guitarists who want get great sounds without spending everything in their bank account, the Frontman 212R combo guitar amp is the way to go.
