    I currently have a Bassman 25 as a practice amp. I think it's pretty good, but I wanna hear some opinions.

    Ditto for me. I am getting ready to purchase a small combo and have my eye on the Frontman 25b, at lower price point than the Bassman 25. I haven't played the Bassman 25, ut the Frontman sounds great for it's size. Any other opinions?

    I've got the Bassman 25 and it's hot to me. Great tone, handles a B string very well and it has some pretty cool features. The volume is very good for a 25 watt amp but if you're thinking about using it to jam with several other people, it's probably not going to work. I have used mine to jam with a couple of guitarists and a drum machine with good results. The g**tar guys were nice and didn't try to blow me away.

    Same kind of practice set up for me. I love mine but it wouldn't gig with a real drum kit. It's excellent practice amp though.
  5. I use a Frontman 25B for practice and it does a great job. It's louder than I'll ever need around the house for just learning stuff and keeping my chops up.
