Overview

Aimed at guitarists from beginner to weekend warrior, the Fender Mustang I combo amp contains highly accurate amp modeling, a stellar collection of effects courtesy of an all-new DSP platform, and many hidden capabilities, yet it's easy to use right out of the box! The all-new design is visually striking yet evocative of classic Fender styling.

The Fender Mustang I has got a loud, lightweight 20W power amp design and a muscular 8" Fender Special Design speaker in its solidly built cabinet, so it sounds as good as it looks. The Mustang I combo comes factory-loaded with 24 presets built from 8 amp models and 24 effects, with tones from vintage Fender to modern metal. The number of amp models can be increased with its USB connection and the included Fender Fuse software, letting you completely reconfigure the amp any way you see fit. The USB connection also serves as a high-quality, low-latency audio output, making it easy to lay down tracks to the included Ableton Live Lite 8 Fender Edition software a breeze. Also included is IK Multimedia's Amplitube Fender LE software.

The Fender Fuse software opens up a world of possibilities, including on-screen parameter control, deep editing, "hidden" effects, unlimited preset storage, online preset swapping with the Fender FUSE community, and free Fender artist presets.

Don't let the small price or small speaker size fool you into thinking this is some cheap gimmick. This amp is serious, and is the BEST deal going in amplifiers right now! I have many amps, big, expensive amps, and many effects pedals, and this amp is more fun and easier to set up and use than all of them. It has excellent sound quality, feels real sturdy and looks handsome too. The amp is simple to use to modify sounds, and the presets are actually usable. But the REAL fun starts when you use the FUSE software, connect the amp to the pc with the usb cable, and really dig in to the huge amount of effects and amp models. Each effect can be modified just like a real effects pedal, and so can the amps. You actually have more control over the effects than you do in most multi-effects pedals! Being able to save and store a near infinite amount of patches on the pc to be transfered to the amp at any time is just awesome. Not to mention the FUSE online community where you can upload your patches, and download others from fellow Mustang users. The amp is loud enough to get the job done too! The only reason I would give up my Mustang 1 would be to upgrade to the larger Mustang II, but I am quite happy at the moment with the Mustang 1 because it's not too small, yet small enough to be portable. Now I can go to jams without lugging around several effects or big, bulky multi-effect units. To beat all, it comes with a 5 yr transferable warranty! What are you waiting for!?!?!

Well the Fender Mustang 1 guitar amplifier is kind of cool and I liked it at first but then as I played it with my Fender Stratocaster I began to think the distortion sounds weren't too great. But please don't get me wrong it has a guitar tuner programed in it and surf rock sounds and other groovy sounds and it is a digital aged amplifier.

Worth Every Penny... & More

By Brian Kay

from Tampa Bay, Florida

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

These are exceptionally good amplifiers. Have been playing guitar 30+ yrs and owned many amps. All tube amps. The amp models on the Mustang's are incredibly accurate. They sound and respond like REAL tube amplifiers do. Actually, some of the amp models are more responsive than the tube amps they're modeling. In my book that's a perk. And the Mustang's are light! Really like the fact that you get "true" tube tone out of a lightweight package (If you're into tube amps you know what I'm talking about)... They're HEAVY. Also, these amps are VERY loud and powerful for a little 20 watt, solid state piglet. This amp can easily handle small room Gigs (duo, solo, coffee bar, happy hour type small Gigs). It's more than just a "Practice Amp". This little miracle impressed me so much... That I just purchased a Mustang III to Gig out with my band (play Classic Rock, Funk, Electric Blues...). Don't need to cart my heavy tube piggie around anymore (all 75 pounds of it). And don't need the pedal board anymore either. The effects, especially the Verbs and Delays, are outstanding. And that's acroos the board on all the Mustang Amplifier models (I, II, II, IV & V's). These amps have all the bases covered and are much more flexible & versatile (can go from ultra clean tones to face melting crunch wiht the flick of a foot switch). That's what I call FREEDOM! Coming from a "Tube Snob" like myself... this really means something. Fender did this one right.

Everyday workhorse

By Jason Goike

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp sounds surprisingly good. Well better than good really. This amp is so versatile that I feel everyone should own one. Perfect for the house, it sounds good low but you can really crank it and get some solid tone out of it. It's amazing the bang for the buck you get outta of this thing. I play a Epiphone SG G400 through it. I like to get some Crazy Horse like tones out of it. I would love to get a Strat in the near future. I've had this amp for almost a year and I've been playing guitar for just over a year. I play everyday through this amp so I'm really getting my moneys worth. The build quality is solid. I've given it a couple shots with the floor and my foot and it keeps on ticking. I've also abused the jack input and it still works great. The fuse software is good and I normally don't like messing with software. I've used the USB connect to record to the laptop with good results. I'd say the only thing I would really like is another input jack. Also effects pedals don't seem to work to good with it. Your better off sticking with the onboard effects. I'm considering buying couple Mustang I's to give as gifts.

Awesome!

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

I'm a new guitarist but I know value when I see it. This amp is an incredible deal for the price. Having loads of fun creating my own presets and recording my playing via the Ableton Live software that is included. Don't think a beginning guitarist can go wrong with this amp. Plenty of power to annoy the neighbors and enough features to keep you busy for months.

Unreal deal, super love it!

By enoch kennett

from San Francisco

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

I was skeptical of this little Fender, as I have previously only had tube amps, and the one other SS that I've owned was way old by todays standards (I think it was a Fender 15 from the 80's). But got to agree with the other reviews, this little thing is great! I can't believe the options with the FUSE software and Fender online community, you can get pretty great sounding mods out of this amp. So far, I really like the stock '65 twin reverb for blues, add a little more reverb/delay and yer surfing. You can DL presets, effects, etc. and add a bunch to your presets in the amp. Unreal for the price. Well see how it hold up as I've only had it a week, but wow. Got the extended warantee in case it fries, but feels pretty solid for the money. Note to parents or new musicians, I'd avoid this amp as one can literally spend HOURS messing with the options...time better spent practicing clean.

Wow

By rodney crittendon

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp is great! Everything positive I read about this amp is true. The additional software is fantastic. I let a friend who has performed for over 10 years try this amp and I couldn't get him away from it. The next day he went out and bought the Mustang II. More than I need. Great buy!

Absolutely Amazing for the Price!!

By Jimi Hendrix

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

After upgrading from my first amp, the Fender Frontman 15G, this amp is just about perfect. It's a modeling amplifier, but the tones from this little monster are fantastic. The clean tones sing and are so sweet with single coils. The heavier, overdriven tones are very satisfying and don't become muddy when playing chords. Each note rings out. I heard all the reviews of this amp and decided to try it. There's a reason this is the highest reviewed beginner combo amp in the world. It is so dynamic for such a low price! I recommend this to anyone.

You cannot get a better amp. period

By K G

from Cincy OH

Comments about Fender Mustang I 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

I have been playing guitar for a while now, but i am on a tight budget. I picked this amp up thinking that it would be okay, but when i played my strat through it, i was blown away. Do not let the small size fool you. This is one great amplifier. What makes it better is that you can plug it in via USB to any computer and through the included Fender FUSE find any effect you want, such as "Sweet child o mine intro" or "12 string guitar" and download it straight to your amp! This thing is worth twice the money. Buy this amp now!!
