Fender Frontman 212R 100W 2x12- Thoughts, Experience?

Pretty self explanatory here, I am considering buying this amp. Please respond with comments. If you have any ideas of other amps in the 300-400 dollar price range please let me know. Thanks

I would like tubes but the cost is prohibitive.

300-400 dollars is my price range. so what's the next best thing.

he's right tho, new Fender tube amps are all over a grand.

something else that's important is what kind of music you want to be playin' thru it

Do you really need 100 watts? If you don't mind a little less power, I suggest getting a used Peavey Classic 30.

Great tube sound (30 watts tube, that's like 60-ish solid), and you can just run it thru the PA for bigger gigs.
