Start with everything in the 12 o' clock position. Adjust one thing at a time until it sounds good to you.

SOURCE: How can I fix the buzzing noise on my Fender Frontman 212R if I've identified the cables and guitar itself as not being the problem?

... do you, by any chance, have non humbucking pick ups on your guitar? Just curious...

SOURCE: Fender Frontman 212R 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier has a terrible hum whether it is on or off. Can I buy a tube amp head and plug into the Frontman speakers?

Probably it´s just the filtering caps with a bad solder. This noise if lack of filtering. If its the case, no parts needed, just work.

Unplug the amp, let it rest for a while to discharge the caps. Open the amp, and check if you don't have one of the big capacitors loose.

if you are not into electronics, ask someone to do it or go to a repair shop.

Can i go straight out of the pre out on my fender frontman into a powered mixer pa system


yes,, Pre means before powered or amplified ,, so yes you can do this to a powered mixer, just be sure that the power is off before making any connections,, without the ground of the rca cable touching , the blast to the speakers can invert the cone !!

There is something resonating with that note frquency. Often the grille or wiring inside will rattle at certain frequencies. You need a sustained source of these frequencies to find what is causing the noise.

Will a MP3/iPod/CD player play through a Fender Frontman 65 or 212 "Power In" input jack?


The power amp input jack takes "line level" input BUT is monaural (single channel). The output of an ipod is Stereo. Hence you would have to "mix" the two channels before connecting to the Fender. Mixing does NOT mean just tying the two channels together. A minimu thing would be a passive resistive mixer consisting of a resistor from each of the IPOD channels to the common point going to the input of the Fender. Remember if you plug into the Fender power amp input you DISCONNECT the preamp and other circuits and would ONLY hear the IPOD input.
