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.
