Fender FM65DSP vs Fender Frontman 65W ?

Which is better? I'm afraid if I get the FM65DSP, I'll get another dull, muffled-sounding amp. The Frontman looks for like a rock and roll amp, but I haven't heard much of it. I'm not sure. I want an amp with at least 30-60W under $250.

They're both pretty "meh" amps if you ask me. The only redeeming feature for the Frontman series are the cleans.

I played a Vypyr 15 recently which I thought was very good for $100. The Vypyr 30 should be even better, considering it has a larger speaker (12" vs. 8" in the Vypyr 15) and a few more effects.

They are both frontmans.

For $250 you should probably stick with a vypyr, or valvetronix maybe. But you can pick up some tube amps for that money.

I started on a FM DSP and the only thing it gives you is crappier effects.

I'd stay away from both as mentioned. There are better amps out there.


Budget?
New or Used?
Home or Gig?
Genres played?
Current Gear?
Closest City?
etc

Budget
- $250
Home or Gig - Home (but I want something good to play with friends)
Genres Played - Rock, Alternative (and lots of U2)
Current Gear - I've taught myself over a year and I have the skill for two years. I have a Line 6 Spider III 15W (:facepalm and a SX HHS guitar (great beginner guitar).
Closest City - Like I said, home and friends, but closest would be Miami, FL or Tampa, FL.

i hate to tell you but both of those are dull muffled sounding amps. fender should be ashamed of those. every amazing company always has one piece of **** bringing them down. fender has the frontman series, marshall has the MG series, Orange has the crush series, etc.

Then what's good for Fender amps that's $250? I'm starting to consider a VOX Valvetronix, though...

i've seen some used fender Blues Jr.s for around $300, if you're willing to stretch it by $50. the vox valvetronix is truly abysmal for vox's normally impeccable standards, but it's not that bad of an amp. you could consider it.

What about a Fender Vibro Champ XD ?

Vibro Champs are cool. Super Champs are more cool. Good for what you play I say.

Peavey Vypyr might work or a used Valveking 112.

The crates are best for what he plays ironically. But I am a fanboi of the vintage clubs.

That 70's vibro? wow.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
