Overview

How can a modern legend like the Mustang digital amplifiers be improved? Simple—Fender does it again, bigger and better with the 200W Mustang GT 200. The engineers took seven decades’ worth of experience crafting inspirational tools and used it to add new (and better) amp and effects models, while making it easier to use all of this without sacrificing one iota of power. It makes it easy to control a studio’s worth of authentic amp and effects models with one finger via Bluetooth and the exclusive Fender Tone app.

Fender invented the world’s first WiFi-equipped guitar amplifier, making it easy for you to download the latest updates, access Fender artist-created presets, and connect directly with a community of other creative players and music makers like yourself.

The Mustang GT 200 digital amplifier comes packed with 21 classic amp models—everything from the renowned ’59 Bassman to modern metal—and 46 different effects. It can easily recreate classic tones or create brand-new, never-before-heard sounds.

They've developed new algorithms with even higher fidelity and more realistic response, along with more signal path flexibility so you can move effects anywhere in the signal chain for creative exploration. Program your sounds in the studio on the Mustang GT 200’s large, full-color LCD display and then, with one hand, take them to the stage and deliver the most realistic listening experience possible for any audience, short of inviting them into the control room.

The engineering minds at Fender invented inspiring tone, and their updated amp models let your instrument’s voice and the dynamic nuances of your playing come through, reacting just like the originals to your every move. Lighten your attack to “clean up” your sound or dig in to make it grunt or howl—the Mustang GT-200, its specially designed, tone-enhancing, lightweight plywood cabinet and its pair of 12-in. Celestion Special Design speakers reproduce every part of your performance or Bluetooth wireless stream with precision—in stereo.

The included MGT-4 4-button footswitch turns the Mustang GT 200 into a truly formidable performance powerhouse, adding hands-free preset/FX switching and looper control. The easy-to-use Fender Tone app brings convenient, one-finger c ontrol to the Mustang GT 200. Not only can you connect to the Fender Digital ecosystem for learning and sharing, you can easily upgrade the amp’s capabilities, adding more power and presets without patching a single cable or plugging in a soldering iron. One amp for every stage, the Mustang GT 200 is easy for any player, and powerful enough to go around the world.

I love this amp. I've had (and still have) many amps, and this is hands down my current favorite. I've also had tons of modeling amps (including the Cybertwin).
I generally don't go into a modeling amp to make it sound like the amp it's modeling, as strange as that it. I am usually trying to make whatever I am using sound the way I want it. This amp has so many cool options that just sound studio ready. It has a nice feel, and I love that you can stack Effects. This morning I did a Compressor into 2 tube drivers on a 65 Twin, and it sounded so good. Now the purist would argue that it might not sound the same as the original, but I have that set up as well. They are not the same, if anything the Mustang sounds cleaner, but it's uncanny how they got real close at a manageable price point

I played live for 16 years and have been recording over 20. I have a good grasp on what to expect from an amp and what sounds good.

I've been using the GT 200 for about a week now.

Out of the box the display and LED's on the foot-switch don't work, layering with the looper is erratic, and it randomly deletes takes. It works after a firmware update so do it right away. Foot-switch randomly locks up after latest firmware update requiring you to restart the amp.

The remote app doesn't work on Android devices. You can scroll presets but can't create a new one or add fx to an existing one. Custom presets made on the amp do not show up on the app and cause the app to call up wrong patches.

Tuner does not work well. Acts like the input level isn't high enough and the meter is all over the place.

All of the above can be resolved by future firmware. The stuff below maybe . . .

The selector knob is already malfunctioning and I've only got a few hours in to the amp. They are pushing you to use the app and I want to but having an Android phone I can't.

High gain models are unusable imo. Sounds like you are listening on a woofer/tweeter system. You can cut highs in the setup menu but it does not resolve it. This should be the default setting but it's not. Tried to create my own overdrive/distortion presets using the embedded stomp boxes and models and I could not get a good sound using 2 Strats, a Tele, LP, or a Sheraton II with and without active pups. It was worse with active pups.

Fx are not as good as the Mustang IV V.2 especially the Flanger. No Auto-wah. Couldn't even find a preset with it.

Sounds fantastic with my Sheraton II clean. Superb lows. But do you need an advanced modelling amp with the worlds first wifi for a good clean tone?

Demo before buying and don't rely on youtube demo's. They are 100% without a doubt doing a lot of post processing to correct some of the problems, especially on the overdrive/distortion presets.

Thanks.

    Comments about Fender Mustang GT 200 200W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I was very disappointed this evening when I sat down with the new GT-200 for a few hours. What a pain this thing is to get set-up/connected/to stay connected. I would be terrified to use this live.
    First off the Tone app for android is pointless. I cant download other users presets like they showed on the Fender Tone app video, It only lists 'All Presets' on the app and not the other tabs like they show on the video. Its just lame.
    The overdrives and the distortions sound awful. Im playing a Jeff Beck model strat which sounds amazing thru a deluxe or a twin. This GT amp doesnt even get close to soundign anything like my deluxe.
    Its allmost like they screwed two speakers in a box and hooked them up to an bad multieffects guitar pedal. And kinda thats all it is.

    I was hoping to gig with this amp and have it replace my 65 deluxe reissue and my effects. Not this amp.
    Just my opinion thx for reading -

          Comments about Fender Mustang GT 200 200W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I will start this review by saying that I am not a tube amp snob, though I own a few tube amps such as the Fender Deluxe Reverb (perfection) and a Blues Junior III amp. I like to have a variety of amps though and the Fender Mustang series has been good because the amp models included allow you to switch between different sounds relatively easily. The Mustang GT200 sounds convincingly like a tube Twin Reverb, for example, as it has two big Celestion speakers, but it weighs about one fourth of the weight. This is good news for your back if you're going to be moving it around frequently for gigs or for recording. It has XLR outputs so you can feed directly into a PA system easily. It supports a foot pedal which was included with the unit, but you can also control the amp via your phone (I use an iPhone and I hear the Samsung version isn't so great)... and now for my most favorite feature of these amps... you can use them as a giant bluetooth speaker for your music library and jam along with your favorite tunes. Also you can plug headphones into it for practice purposes so as to not wake up the baby. All in all, the feature set of the Mustang GT series is excellent, and the amp modeling especially of the old Fender amps is fantastic. I would recommend this amp to anyone interested.

          Since someone have this a bad review without even trying it, I'm going to give it 5 stars since I have tried it and I didn't have the money to walk out with it!

          Presets on here are pretty great and they sound pretty authentic. I found a preset that I liked that had a couple of people looking at me like "where's that coming from?"

          The XLR and usb options are a nice touch. I'll probably trade in my Amplifi towards purchasing one of these.

          Comments about Fender Mustang GT 200 200W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I can't stress enough that if you're interested in buying any amp it is very important to test the amp in person. There is nothing better than being in the same room listening to the actual sound, tone and range of amp in person. I gig with blues jazz musicians and sit in with rock musicians too and realized that each musician that I played with had their own particular sound and not one was the same. An older musician gave me some great advice he said " when you're on stage it's not about you it's about the crowd, if you play with lots of feel you will win the crowd. Most people don't care what type of amp you use". Sound and tone is very subjective, if you don't like sound in person then there's your answer. It does not mean that the fender missed their mark it just means that the amp does not fit your style. Youtube reviews can only scratch the surface of capturing the real sound and its sonic intricacies.

          Very fun amp. Took the GT200 to the studio and it kept up easily with two Marshall double stacks. Best to get what sounds you want before showing up. I did get new sounds I'm not used to with my Telecaster. My Les Paul sounded amazing using the British sound effects. Love the loop station that comes with the petal. I love how light this amp is. No straining carrying this. With my Marshall 40 watt tube amp I have to set it down a lot since it's soooo heavy.

          Comments about Fender Mustang GT 200 200W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          Why does fender keep producing these w/out midi control capability? I own a Mustang IV that sounds amazing, but with its limited ability to control presets, it has stopped me from using the processing in a live situation. I ended up with an eleven rack that I ran stereo into the effects loop return, and I control presets on the rack via midi. This would be an absolute success if they gave me more control than a combo of a four button and 2 button switch. It looks like they have done away with the second switch on this one?????

            That's right - I said keyboard amp! It IS a good guitar amp, especially the Fender models, and all the before-mentioned features. But the great UNdocumented feature with this amp is that you can plug your stereo keyboard line outputs into the L and R effects loop return jacks on the back and voila! You now have a high powered stereo keyboard amp with 100 watts per channel thats easy to move around. The nearly full range celestion speakers have smooth tone and sound way better that most guitar amps do for keyboards. Got more than one keyboard? Plug a small stereo mixer into the effects returns and now you can handle multiple instruments or mics. I've been playing this setup with my Nord E5d-73 and Hammond SK1-73 and am amazed at how well it works. The amp is so light that I can drag it to rehearsals and with the balanced XLR outputs it works great with the PA for larger venues and outdoor festivals. Oh yeah - and you'll be spending about half as much for keyboard-specific stereo amps with comparable specs!

              This amp overall has made me happier than any other amp I've owned. I'm sure anyone can find presets they like fenders really covered all the bases there. But once you get comfortable the options this has are really amazing. The sound is great and volume is unbelievable. Trying to control it with my iPhone has absolutely sucked but for some reason my iPad has handled it better. A lot of connection dropping especially when programming, and issues with phone duplicating preset names and miss reading preset names. Does not effect actual amp settings but pretty erritating. For all you get in this package I don't think it can be beat for the money, I just hope fender fixes the bugs

              Great modeling amplifier if you like the Mustang sound.

              Clean tones sound best on this amp, but the other patches aren't bad. Lots of effects and good clear tones. Very happy with the amp.

                  Great product that is easy to set up and use. Tons of options to dial in just the right sound in fact, so many options I sometimes get lost trying to decide. I haven't messed with the foot switch so I am not sure how easy it is to use...seems a bit complicated. When you don't know the possibilities and what sounds are available, this amp can show you a lot of options.

                  I have been using a Fender Pro 185 (185W 2x12, 61lbs) amp for nearly 30 years and I still love it but it's just too heavy to carry around for gigs. This amp is all that and more and it only weighs 34lbs! It has the additional plus of being able to emulate other amps. The '65 Twin Reverb emulation is excellent. also plenty of power at 200w. The Celestion speakers are great!

                  Substantial upgrade from the Mustang GT 100. Much better tone and sound with the 200. This amp has many, many features and options. More than enough for the casual player. Worth the extra money!
