OVERVIEW

A huge wealth of tones in a portable, versatile platform.

How can a modern legend like the Mustang digital amplifiers be improved? Simple—Fender did it again, bigger and better with the Mustang GT 40. Fender made 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. Fender created the Mustang GT 40 digital amplifier.

Packed with 21 classic amp models—everything from the renowned ’59 Bassman to modern metal—and 46 different effects, the Mustang GT 40 can easily recreate classic tones or create brand-new, never-before-heard sounds. Fender 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 40’s large, full-color LCD display and then, with one hand, take them anywhere for the most realistic listening experience possible.

Fender invented inspiring tone, and our 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 40 and its dual 6-in. Fender Special Design speakers reproduce every part of your performance or Bluetooth wireless audio stream with precision. Adding the optional MGT-4 4-button footswitch for hands-free preset/FX switching and looper control turns the Mustang GT 40 into a truly formidable performance powerhouse.

Adding convenient, one-finger control to the Mustang GT 40’s power is the easy-to-use Fender Tone app. 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 40 is easy for any player but powerful enough to go around the world.

Had a Mustang V ver 2 head, loved it but am not into gigging at this time, mostly working in my home studio, the new GT 40 is perfect!. Hooked up to my phone, notepad and home network in minutes, easy! Great 3 color interface and easily mastered in less than an hour. The footswitch with the looper is handy. Either running thru the studio system or standing alone this little amp has great tone, I would have liked the XLR line out but the head phone jack works just as good and delivers stereo to the mixer, the rest from there is nothing but great sound as you would expect from the Fender Mustang Series.

I've tested this junk out at Guitar Center last week, and I'm not impressed. I knew it was going to be a cheap build from the looks and feel, but was hoping the sound was the same or similar to the original Mustang Amp series that this is modeled after. After playing and tweaking for over 20 mins or so, I couldn't say anything good about it. Cheap build and sound = garbage. I most certainly won't be buying.

Great Little Amp!

Comments about Fender Mustang GT 40 40W 2x6.5 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

The first tone is just awesome. The Basic '65 Twin, paired with my Strat has a great Fender signature sound to it. Great idea to be able to go browse other sounds and upload them right to the amp. Great amp to have around the house.

Problems/Tips:
The Bluetooth wasn't working, and it wouldn't connect to my internet, so I took it to my in-laws and it connected just fine. I was able to update the software and now the bluetooth works much better. There is still a ways to go, but I would say it's at least 75% functional.

Really impressed with the sound and clarity. The presets are spot on. The bluetooth and wifi connection, updates, and option to use as a regular bluetooth speaker are a nice plus. For the price, can't beat it.

      Comments about Fender Mustang GT 40 40W 2x6.5 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      The Fender Mustang is really one amp for every stage, this nice little amp is easy for player but powerful enough to go around and in room. First honestly I bought Line 6 Spider V 30 W but after two days, volume stop working. I exchanged it to GT 40 and happy that I did, Line 6 spider by the way less powerful, but GT 40 a little more expensive. 4* starts because of it was took a long to connect Wi-Fi and it will be good come up with a nicer design instead of poor black box.

      Problems with Bluetooth

      doesn't work as advertised. Musician's friend wants original packaging for a refund. I threw out my packaging so i'm stuck with a lemon. Fender should recall this amp.

      Android Bluetooth does not work correctly to control the amp. Amp sounds dull and closed even after much tweaking.
