Overview

The 7-watt Mustang Mini guitar combo amp is perfect for guitarists of any skill level who need a small-but-powerful solution for practice, impromptu jam sessions, or small performances. The Mustang Mini runs on the included AC power supply or six C batteries (not included), allowing you to take great tone wherever it's needed.

Eight amplifier models form the backbone of the Mustang Mini's sounds, along with 12 onboard efffects (additional effects are available using Fender's free FUSE software and the Mustang Mini's USB connection). 24 presets give you amazing sounds right out of the box, with more presets—including Artist presets—available using the aforementioned FUSE software. A digital chromatic tuner ensures you're always on pitch.

The Mustang Mini combo amp has looks like its larger sibling, the Mustang I, including skirted knobs, "Carbon Tweed" covering, and a silver grille cloth. And to make sure you're heard, the metal carry handle doubles as a tilt-back stand!

Excellent amp, handily matches or beats all other battery amps at this price. Travels well in a medium-size roll-on bag. Full set of I/O ports (aux in/out, USB, footswitch (not included), oh, and yes, guitar). Nice assortment of clean, distorted, and modulated sounds out of the box, you can download more from the Fender website, or create your own on your computer with the downloadable software. The USB port also serves as a computer sound source so you can use this amp as an A-D converter to record your playing on the computer (many such converters alone cost more than this entire amp). Plenty of volume for most purposes, the 6" speaker with beefy voice coil seems like a good full-range unit with plenty of power handling capacity. Sounds good when played clean at higher volumes, much better than smaller "toy" amps. Not much bass, but it would be hard for Fender to overcome the physics of small speakers here. Case is made from chipboard, and covered with a thin faux carbon-fiber material. The nice handle doubles as an amp stand so you can tilt the amp back for better projection. Surprisingly stingy with battery power for a DSP amp, it uses C-cells rather than the AA-cells found in other amps of this class. Fender includes an AC adapter that can be stowed inside the amp for travel in case the batteries poop out on you. The batteries may shake loose during travel, so you might like to secure them with a bit of duct tape beforehand. The PC boards and speaker cone are exposed within the case, so I would not use it to carry heavier or sharper objects. DSP amps can be very confusing to operate, but I think Fender has made an agreeable compromise between comprehensiveness and ease of use. It would have been nice to have had some sort of alphanumeric display, but you can do what I did and print out a little color-coded chart of the patches and stick it inside the corner between the speaker grille and the case.

The Mustang Mini is a 7W more portable version of the Fender Mustang line of amps and can be run off its included AC adapter or from batteries. It's the sort of amp that buskers would probably use, but it's also targeted toward anyone who needs a portable modeling amp and the USB and headphone/line outputs also give it a place in the studio. As a member of the digital Mustang amp family, it has most of the features and sounds of its bigger brothers, but with a tad fewer knobs and a 6" speaker. Deep editing via a PC unlocks all the capabilities that you would want, sound wise. The problem? A screechy, peaky, beamy sound with most patches that is exacerbated by its small speaker, but which is really a product of the horrid solid state power amplifier. I've tried it with one other 6" speaker and plugged into a variety of 8", 10" and 12" speakers and it still sounds much worse than a Mustang I, II or III at similar volumes. Honestly, you'll get much, much better sound out of it if you plug a cable from its headphone jack into a pair of computer speakers or powered monitors. Too bad, because with a slight revamp and a different form factor, this could have been a worthy killer of the Yamaha THR line of amps.

mustang mini

By dennis harper

from casa grande, arizona

This little amp is great, its easy to move around, the batteries, six 'c' , seem to last a long long time. I'm just learning so its nice to be able to sit just about anywhere and practice. The various effects are cool and there isn't any real limit to what they can be. I don't think you can go wrong with this amp.

Best Battery Powered Amp So Far

By DAVID WILLIAMS

from Poolesville, MD.

I have several high end tube amps - Fargen Miniplex II, Budda SDII 18, SS22, and have had mesa's, marshal's, peavey's, you name it. Into low wattage now that i don't gig loud. Having com of age during the 70's when the first SS amps hit the market in large scale - Acoustic etc., and being in high tech I've always been interested in what the latest in amp tech sounds like. This little amp defies expectations. Sometime I swear the SS emulation sounds better then the real thing! Batteries make it great for just sitting down anywhere in the house and pluggin in your ipod or whatever player and jammin' to great sounds at truly bedroom levels. Even in a house where you have plenty of power outlets batteries are nice. One less cord to worry about behind the couch or table. Excellent work Fender. Mustang I is next up.

Nice amp for the price

By Mark Tavano

from Boston

For what you get, this is a cool little amp. The modeling is excellent with unlimited features to play around with. I used this mostly for recording. I have not tried it on battery power yet. The Fuse software is very cool. The sound is what you would expect from a 6.5" China speaker. My only gripe is when I hook up my iPod through the AUX input, the input picks up noise. Otherwise this is a nice little tool.

The Best

By ARNABA RATH

from Denver Colorado

I have been reading in and out so many reviews, none have any problem what so ever with this product. And after using it for 1 year, I understand why. This is the best practice amp. Great sound, no problem at all.

I Love This Amp!

By Stephen Terry

from Airway Heights, WA

I do not know of any practice amplifier that offers so much modeling and so many effects as this one. I love the portability and since you can use batteries, you can even practice in the park, camping, or at the beach. While it is only rated at 7 watts, it seems to have as much or more power than a lot of 15 watt amps. The speaker is 6.5" and that extra 1/2 inch seems to really make a difference. If you want a small practice or travel amp that sounds like more than just a speaker in a tin can, you should check this one out. It's worth a few extra bucks. Fender really hit a home run with their Mustang Series amps.

great amp

By Nick Woodbury

from lynn, ma

love the mustang amps, great amp. the one thing that kills me is that it's more expensive than the mustang 1, but in my opinion you are paying more for the portability.

Best Little Amp.

By Dax Higgins

from Salt Lake City, UT

This little thing has more power than any other mini amp like this. Granted, it has a small speaker, so the sound is not going to be as high quality as the larger Mustang amps; However, if you export the signal to another speaker or use headphones, it's pretty much the same exact sound. There are tons of options using the Fuse software to get just the tone you are looking for, and if you have another Mustang amp, transferring your sounds from one amp to another is very easy. Quality is a seemingly very good, solid build. I got this amp because of it's battery use and the ability to get the exact tones I wanted. It also comes with an adapter cord, so you don't have to rely on the batteries alone or buy anything extra. For the cost and what this thing can do, it's a steal. For something like it, but without the batteries and a bigger sound, you may want to check out the Mustang I as well.
