Yeah, IMO, the Frontmans (Frontmen?) suck. Okay cleans, but that's about it.

A Mustang or Vypyr are your best bet, like others have said. No need for the RP, decent sounds and fun stuff to play around with. If it has to be from two different people, do what jj said and get gift cards and pool 'em if you can.

then i'd say fine.

but he wants a digitech, which means he doesn't play clean, and also means he has more than $100.

so, this is not the amp he's looking for....

The frontman 25R was my 1st amp, i got rid of it within 2 months. Pool the money and get something better. The suggested Mustang or Vyper 30 or 60 are great practice amps

I used to have a Fender Frontman FM212 and a RP250 as my main rig.

Now I have a Vypyr 60 tube combo.

Much better.

Save up.

I've seen them used for $250

I would say that if your looking at cheap solid-state amps the Vox Pathfinder 15r is a better value than a Frontman. IMHO in the cleans are better plus you get a real spring reverb unit and tremelo.

Hold on, he never said what kind of music he played..

My thoughts on the Frontman, don't get it. It's a waste of money.

But its not very heavy music and both rely on a very pushed tube amp. At least I think.

No on the Frontman and Digitech. I really dont think you will get the sounds you want out of it.

Youd probably be better off with a Champ and a Big Muff. haha.

But like I said, if its a present, and you cant do too much about it, it will work. It wound be great, but hell, I played on one with a Speciall II for about a year. And though it didnt inspire me to play, It got the job done.

I have to agree with the Frontman not being the amp you're looking for.
Meh cleans, worst drive sound ever. It's like a reverse Marshall MG.

Getting the gift cards, pooling them and buying a Fender Mustang will make you much happier.
