With 100 watts of power and a 10" woofer, the Fender 1270P powered stage monitor packs a big punch in a tiny package.

"Light Weight! Loud! And Well Worth It!" submitted December 9, 2003

Music Style: Acoustic Rock, Alternative, and Jazz
Back to Product Information
Sound: This is a monitor, not a main speaker, or a music instrument amplifier. Keep in mind, there is no EQ, simple tone knob and volume knob. The sound is VERY LOUD! I can't even turn it past 2 without it really getting up there. During a concert I might push it to 3 if the stage volume is loud. My acoustic guitar is really hot though. Others may need to turn it up a tad more. But as far as volume, this little and Very "light weight" monitor with amp, is very very LOUD! Great and perfect for me. I won't be using a stage amp for a long time now. This thing is just too convenient and a highly recommended product for those who need something small with a lot of volume. Quality: Made well, with high density plastic, and over all good speaker. Value: Very worth the dollar value. I have spent more and lost out. You can't go wrong with this monitor. Overall: I think I am set. I don't want to lug equipment around. This monitor has 2 features, Loud, and light weight. The sound is good for a monitor. You will not get the sound of a guitar amp or acoustic amplifier from it, unless you go through a processor first. But for the most part, thats why it is a monitor, it should be flat and dry.

Sound: It has a nasty hum, perhaps a power conditioner would help. Our other stuff sounds fine though so it's not like it's just bad power. Quality: The power jacks have come loose from the body, got it fixed, now I can hear something rattleing around inside when I move it. Value: Cheap, but it's the item I would use to say "let's not get stuck with another one like this" Overall: It still works after about 6 years, but when I have the money I will upgrade. It's the kind of thing that just makes you frustrated to think about.

Fender 1270P Monitor Customer Review submitted March 5, 2006

Back to Product Information
Sound: This Fender monitor sounded good for a couple of months, but is cheaply made, and now is sounding distorted and needs service. The owners manual does not mention warranty repair at all. Feature: Features are useful, but parts are cheapest available. Not roadworthy. Ease of Use: Easy to use. Quality: This monitor is not well made. The parts are cheap, the fit and finish is poor. Not roadworthy! Value: Cheap is not always good value. This monitor proves that. Overall: Might be fine for home use for people on a strict budget. Not acceptable for a hard-working gigging musician.

Back to Product Information
Sound: Our church bought one of these as a keyboard amp....BAD CHOICE - this is not much good as a instrument amp. It is intended as a PA monitor and nothing more. Out of the box it sounded HORRIBLE - and needed a long burn-in time of a good week or two before it started to sound a little more sweeter. However, treble is still ragged and colored. Bass is ok and this amp can kick loud, but if you are looking for clarity for those glorious synth sounds - FORGET IT. Will probably work better as a guitar amp. After some months, it has started to distort now and there is a persistant slight hum that was not there before. Looking to replace this as soon as possible.....FENDER should just stick to guitar amplification and nothing else. Feature: The input volume control is SO sensitive as it was designed to handle mic levels as well as line levels. THere is no hi/lo switch which would have helped a lot - or separate mic and line inputs. Too much cost savings here makes this hard to set up. Ease of Use: Fiddly to set up as said before. Quality: ok for the road - fairly rugged - nice looking - that is about all I can say about that... Value: Cheap - but you get what you pay for - pay a little more and get a Yamaha instead. Manufacturer Support: No comment - did not use support The Wow Factor: A bad investment Overall: Distorting after a few months of use - will not last long

VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: The line input (using a CD player as a source) sounded really bad. The highs were distorted and the overall sound was nowhere near flat. When using the Amp In input (bypasses tone controls) the sound improved but was still unsatisfactory (very edgy). I think the problems were related to cheap tone control circuits and a really bad choice of high-frequency driver for this product. Feature: The size was what attracted me to this monitor in the first place...small. Value: It's not worth the price. Even though it cost me $50 to ship it back, I know I would not use it if I kept it. Overall: The Yamaha MSR-100 totally blows away the Fender 1270P. Yes, the Yamaha costs about $100.00 more but it is an order of magnitude better than the Fender. I really expected much more quality from a Fender product.
