Which of these 2 for quality of clean channel and ability to take pedals well (such as Turbo Rat, Ibanez DE 7, Boss SD1, Big Muff)?
Guitar is a Fender Strat Deluxe, Lace Sensors. Genre: blues, hard and prog rock.
Thank you all!

The Frontman is utter garbage, the Peavey is a solid, if unspectacular, workhorse of an amp - just keep the pedals on the clean channel.
Actually called Mark!

Gigging?

this.

the frontman is an embarrassment to fender's legendary cleans.

the peavey also has no cleans to speak of. if you want cleans and ability to take a pedal, have a look at a fender blues junior.

also, whats your budget?

Ok, here we go: Budget is £200, willing to buy used, no gigging, only home use at the moment, but loudness not an issue.
Also listened to a fender performer 650 and liked the clean channel a lot.

GOT it! The Vox Valvetronix AD60VT in the end - in my guitar shop, as new condition, for £220! Very happy!
Thanks for all your help!

Frontman is actually pretty good, decent tone and much cheaper than MG. Keep in mind it's a bargain basement amp really though. Bandit beats it hands down though. Valvetronix is a great choice, good to see you snagged one of the older blue models.

The Bandit by a mile. Great amps if you want a simple, reliable rock setup.
I found them to be pretty awesome of deathy thrash also.

Spending a couple years with a V1 Bandit 1x12, they really aren't that bad. Nothing I would record with, or even gig with unless forced, but if my amp ever broke mid-rehearsal I would have a great backup.

I think I would take a Frontman over a Rage though...

Lol, my vocalist used to use a Rage for practice, with three different bands he had been in. I'm not sure how long that little 8 inch speaker has been broken, 15 SS watts cranked to 10!
