So the Fender Frontman is a 350 dollar 100 watt amp. Seems a little too good to be true? I've tried it on the clean channel which is great. How are the drive channels? Overall is this amp any good and if not which ones for about 350 are?

100 watts is a meaningless figure to fixate on, it's just the power output of the amp - it's got no relation whatsoever to the quality of the sound or the amp itself for that matter. It's also not really an indication of volume, or at least useable volume - solid state amps tend to start clipping as you turn them up - the sound runs out of headroom pretty quickly.

The frontman is a pretty horrible amp all told, decent cleans, as all solid state amps tend to have, but pissweak thin buzzy distortion.

Get one of the Crate V series from musicians friend before they're all gone.
Actually called Mark!

No, the V-series line is being discontinued, and as such they're dirt cheap.

If you're playing classic rock, an important question to ask yourself is this: "Is this a tube amp?" In fact, with about every genre, that is a very important question to ask yourself. Check out the Blackheart Little Giant. 5w of tube for about $350. 5w is a great wattage for home playing.

All the frontman amps are the same. 10 watts or 100 watts. They dont get better with more effects or more watts. They sell because of the low price not the quality.

^ I can second that. I have a frontman. Crap is the only word I can use to describe how it sounds.
