I haven't used this amp in a show yet...but the amp I was using was a Fender M80 from 1991...to which many other musicians gave me grief over...until they heard it. This amp is very similar...my guess is anyone that complains about the sound quality probably doesn't understand how to get good, workable guitar tone out of ANY amp.

The first thing I did was replace the default setting using the FUSE software. This is pretty easy to do if you're not a luddite. I took the 65 Deluxe Reverb, cut the gain all the way back, set my Mid and Bass between 8 and 10, and dropped the tone down to 3ish. Volume to your liking. This may not sound right, but trust me...this will get you that nice warm tone. That is my default tone now that I start with when I'm creating a new preset. You can replace any of the preset spots through the software.

I'm almost 45...I love my day job, and gave up on the pipe dream of making it big many years ago. Every place where I live mics amps...so I see these guys bringing in 4x12 cabs with marshal heads...there's absolutely no chance of getting into the sweet volume area with those...and oh, by the way, sound guys HATE those high powered rigs! They see me walk in with a little 100 watt solid state amp, and they love me! I also don't need a large vehicle, or someone else to carry my amp.

This is a great amp, so far...but again...I'll know more after my next live performance.

I didn't like it. I play Harmonica and Yamaha WXT11 Midi Wind Instrument. I often play in coffee house situations, sometimes I run a backing track to play with. The Mustang 111 doesn't reproduce the full spectrum - drums and lower midrange frequencies are dull. I heard good things about this amp from other harp players. I suppose they like the fact that you can replicate the old overdriven tweed "Chicago" style harp. I do too, but I also play acoustic and need a clean sound that includes all of the harmonics of the instrument. In that mode, the Mustang falls short, and it doesn't come close to matching a keyboard amp - strictly a guitar amp for beginners and hobbyists.

The Fuse software is a big plus, you really can dial in what you are looking for. This amp is excellent for studio work at any level, that's why I had to give it a couple of stars - not useless, but not really useful for my purpose. Juke joint harp players . . . you might like it for that high distortion sound, it sends a good signal to the house, but you have to put something like a Mojo Pad between you and this amp.

Amazing guitar amp for practicing, jamming, recording, and gigging.

By Basel Najjar

from Sugar Land, TX

Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

Got this as a birthday present a few months ago, and I can honestly say that I could not be more satisfied with it. Once you get past the learning curve of figuring out how all the functions work, this amp allows for limitless possiblities. The only thing missing is a loop function (which is easily solved by purchasing a loop pedal). The sound is crystal clear at low and high outputs. Extraordinary array of options and settings to create any kind of sound you are looking for. It's possible to play literally any genre of music with the number of options that are available. I love the fact that you can go in and deep edit each individual stomp-box and effect right there on the amp. The display and controls are simple and clear. It's also extremely versatile. Low volumes are still clear and are great for a "bedroom amp," the USB-out is great for home and studio recording, and with 100 watts, it's definetely loud enough to rock out smaller gigs. All in all great product that I am sure I will be using for a long, long time.

Major Performance at a Great Price

By William Olander

from Bloomingdale, IL

Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

The age of electronics always amazes and this amp is not an exception. It has huge capabilities, works well at low practice volumes, and can punch it out for jamming. With a hundred preprogrammed profiles, it is easy to find most sound profiles that are desired. The profiles also can have volume settings so that a player can scroll from background to lead sound levels. The construction is solid and the feel is of the old quality amps of the past. There isn't any break up at high volume levels. The only downside is that scrolling to the various profiles can be tedious. This problem is solved by re-arranging the profiles with the FUSE software. For a playlist of songs, it is possible for a player to arrange the sound profiles for a predetermined playlist and just scroll as each number is played. Great amp.

      All I got to say is WOW!!!! this amp sounds great it has great pre set sounds and of you don't find something you like you could always dial in your settings to your own taste. The sound is really clean and with 100 watts it packs enough punch for gigs and finally for a fender you can't beat the low price I highly recommend it.

      Sweet Amp

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I have had this amp for a month or so and love it. You can get a lot great sounds and and effects out of it. when you switch effects and channels it is seamless no hesitation at all. Very loud amp I bought the 4 button mustang switch so I can tune my guitar from floor that's a nice feature. I would recommend this amp to anyone from beginner to pro. It is very easy to use and plugging into computer gives you a experience like no other.

        Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I did a lot of research. I was looking for an amp that would replace my 65 Super Reverb bc the weight of the 65 was too heavy to drag along to practice in the studio. I couldn't decide between this and the Champion. Both amps are great. I went with this bc I was able to change change the presets to fit all my needs. I read on a couple of reviews that getting a clean setting was next to impossible. I'm 55 years old old school guitar player. After sitting with the amp a couple of hours I was able to get clean, dirty, jazz, blues,... tones. The settings are endless. The 65 preset isn't as warm as my tubed 65 but it is close for a solid state amp. I would highly recommend this amp.

          Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          Terrific Amp! Sounds Great once you get past most of the extreme FX laden Factory Presets 00-82. The Basic Profiled Amp models in Factory Preset Memories 83-99 are a great place to start finding your preferred tones, as these have no FX enabled. The Advanced Amp settings (tap Amp button 2x) gets you deeply into the Mustang's Magic. Here you may adjusts SAG, BIAS, Cab Simulations, and more. Note: These Advanced Amp settings are individual for each of the 100 Presets - they are not a global adjustment! With the Mustangs a subtle adjustment to any of a Preset's Amp or FX parameters can go a long way!

          The Free Fender FUSE software can do a lot for Windows or Mac users. However, if you have an Android tablet or smartphone, the REMUDA App is the way to go! It does things FUSE lacks and makes editing, reorganizing, and using the Amp much easier and convenient!

          I bought the Mustang III v.2 during the 2014 year-end Holidays Sale, and it has been flawless ever since. I subsequently added the optional 4 button footswitch and EXP-1 Volume and Expression pedal accessories. Each significantly adds to the Amp's functionality and enjoyment.

            This thing is pretty awesome. It comes with a huge amount of presets and allows for a lot of adjustments to be made to the separate sounds to get what you want. It gets LOUD but still maintains itself in clarity. It is perfect for garage band practice or even live shows

              Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

              This is a great amp! If you are interested in one of the top end Solid State amps for a great price check this amp out. This amp has something for everyone. If you are new to amps and or amp modeling there are some great YouTube videos out there and the patches from Fender are outstanding. Check out the guys from intheblues on YouTube for their blind tests and see for yourself why this amp rocks. Also you can download their legit patches.

              The only things I would improve on is the ability to add more than one stomp box effect in line for the modeling. This wouldn't be too difficult but right now you can't. Also an EQ would be awesome for the rack settings.

              Highly recommend this amp! You will enjoy it.
