Your source for frequency information should be the manufacturer.
As to the voltage issue, your neighborhood transformer from the utility dictates the voltage in your house. The nominal voltages align with what the amp manufacturer offers, 220v, 230v or 240v. This would be a good time to verify your incoming voltage. BTW, combine a neutral (white) with any of those hot wires and you get exactly half.
Your voltage issue can be dealt with as follows:
At your wall outlet the white or neutral wire is identical to the black or hot wire except for color. If it's convenient to dedicate that outlet to the amp, at the breaker panel, the white wire can be moved from the neutral bar and moved to a terminal on a two pole 15 amp breaker along with it's black wire. Then replace the 120 volt receptacle with a 220(230/240) volt/ 15 amp receptacle.
You won't need a transformer at all, but depending on your skill level, you may need an electrician. People with some electrical skills can do this. The cost variable with an electrician is whether or not, new wire has to be pulled.
