OVERVIEW

Get the most out of your Mustang amp!

Connect this 4-button footswitch to your Mustang amplifier (included with the Mustang IV & V, optional for the Mustang III) to enable remote multi-function foot control. The footswitch display and LEDs show you some of the same information as the amplifier screen, so you can, for example, tune your guitar and select presets by watching the footswitch without ever looking at the screen onboard the Mustang!


Select Quick Access presets (QA1/QA2/QA3)
Select presets (up/down/bank)
Bypass effects
Activate the tuner


Six-button footswitch options
Plug both a 4-button and a 2-button footswitch into your Mustang amplifier to expand your remote control options. By assigning different functions to each footswitch you can create more than a dozen different foot control combinations.

For example, you could assign Quick Access presets to the 4-button footswitch and Up/Down presets to the 2-button footswitch. Or you could bypass effects with the 4-button footswitch and select presets with the 2-button footswitch. The choice is up to you.

FEATURES
  • 4-button footswitch for Mustang III, IV, and V amps
  • Select Quick Access presets (QA1/QA2/QA3)
  • Select presets (up/down/bank)
  • Bypass effects

I started with the Mustang v head and it came with the 4 button switch- I bought the two button switch knowing I would need it-
I then bought the mustang III for easier transport-

If you gig with the mustang and use alot of different sounds- you should have the 2 and 4 button working together- The 4 button has a nice L.E.D-readout although, hard to read in sunlight - the 2 pair of buttons are a bit close to each other- I had to make a cover for the left button because in the middle of singing and switching for leads- I would sometimes hit both buttons with my foot- putting me in a sound mode that I didnt want-
Using the 2 and 4 button switches together allows you to use the two button for up/down channel switching and the 4 button for effects and lead boost. there are 3 modes that you can use with the 4 button- i use the third one wich acts like a pedal board.
(3 buttons on the right- from left to right i set for 1 gain/boost button 2 effect1
button 3 effect2. some people might think this is over kill- but with the 2 button you can also switch channel up/down and actually have 3 different settings for songs which need it- ex: comfortably numb- clean/up to clean with effects- up to distortion- up again for a boosted volume for the signature lead sound without having to click any effects on because you have them all preset on that channel.
its not difficult to use if you take your time and goto the fender site for suggestions-

I give this a 4.5 im taking .4 off because of the buttons being a bit close and .1 off for the hard to read LED in the sun on outsiode gigs.

Fender has impressed me with the mustang line and the versatility that the button footswitches gives any guitar player.

As a review of the 4 button- I had to talk about the two button also- as it comes with certain mustangs and the 4 button comes with the other amp models- if you are getting the 4 button and you have the two button already-
do yourself a favor and USE them both!

This is a handy and functional footswitch. I find the instructions on how to best use it very lacking. What would be very helpful would be a video on their website showing how to program the unit to get the most out of it. To date Fender support has not provided this on their web site. It is confusing trying to figure out just what this footswitch is capable of doing and how to set it up to do it. With some changes in the functionality of the Fuse software that comes with the Mustang amps, this could be a GREAT footswitch, however, Fender has not done a good job explaining how to maximize the use of the Fuse software or the footswitch. The instruction manual is sorely lacking in this department. That said, the footswitch does work well and add to the functionality of the Mustang amps. Whereas the Mustang amps are a lot of bang for the buck, in comparison, the footswitch is overpriced.

    Comments about Fender 4-Button Footswitch for Mustang Amps:

    Great addition to my Mustang III.

    I use this together with the 2 button switch. Using the 2 button to walk up or down through presets. I tend to leave the 4 button in mode three to switch in/out the stomp, modulation, delay for a simple & portable rig.

    If you go a with a basic clean, crunch, lead setup you could probably lock those in as the mode 1 - 3 presets and just switch through those with the 4 button all by itself.

    I got mine used through MF but the only difference I could tell from a new one was the lower price. No issues at all.

    Comments about Fender 4-Button Footswitch for Mustang Amps:

    The Mustang III should really come with this standard. Multiple modes allow you to switch effects on/off, switch presets, etc... and make it much easier than the existing 2 buttons switch. Can still be used in concert with that 2 button switch and the The exp-1 pedal. Dedicated to Mustang Amps though, so you can't use it on other models.

    Comments about Fender 4-Button Footswitch for Mustang Amps:

    I bought a Fender GDEC 30 and loved it so much for a practise amp that I bought another one as a spare still in the box. The tweater in the speaker configuration is the best practice amp I have ever found. Crystal clear on the highs. To bad Fender discontinued this amp.

    The 4 Button Mustang is totally compatible with the exception of the labeling.

      Comments about Fender 4-Button Footswitch for Mustang Amps:

      Picked up a Fender G-DEC 15 as a practice amp, but the looping function was useless. Looked for the matching footswitch, but it was discontinued. Did my research and found this would work, (although not labled correctly for the G-DEC).

      Light weight, but rugged construction. Easy to change patches. Bright mult-colored LEDs show status in the dark. Tuner function accessible from switch and tuning shows on red LED readout. Looping is a breeze.

      If you have a G-DEC3 and you don't have a footswitch, order one of these right now.

            Works great with my Mustang III. The 2-button is way to tiny for the Mustang III. The 4-button should've been a standard accessory.

                This is a must have for your mustang amp. It makes the amp so much more versatile. I love being able to use 3 quick access settings and the tuner too. I only wish it had more features or that my 2 button footswitch could be used for a 4 and 5 quick access. I do still hook up the 2 switch for scrolling up and down the models. Well made too, buy it- you won't regret it.

                    The four button switch is a must for the Mustang amp. It changes the whole use of the amp from a simple up and down (2 button switch), to a highly usable selective switch. You can switch effects ect.
                    This is a must if you are playing live. Also, you can use both the 2 button and the 4 button together for more options.

                    A Must Have . . .

                    By David Garrett

                    from Arizona

                    Comments about Fender 4-Button Footswitch for Mustang Amps:

                    This box is standard for the IV and V models and should be included with the model III, but you have to give the people something to encourage them to go for the more expensive model. If you are going to use this amp for performances, I would consider the box to be mandatory equipment. The tuner makes it easy to tweek on the fly. When combined with the 2-button switch (included with the amp) you can use the 4-button to select a bank of ten, and then use the 2-button to move up and down that bank while you use the 4-button to control effects boxes. Very versitile. You can set up banks of ten with all you favorite amps and effects, and play any type of music you desire with ease. With the included software, you can always save you original presets in a backup file if you wish to revert to the original set up. I think the amp will also auto revert if you choose.
                    Would be nice if the amp allowed you to control your media library presets when the computer is attached. This would allow virtually unlimited customization with pretty much hands free operation.
                    Seems reasonbly sturdy, but only time will tell how it holds up.
                    I have seen it sold for less, but I am a long time customer of MF and know what kind of service I can expect. The box is well worth what I paid for it.
