I was initially not sure about an amp with an eight inch speaker having any semblance of sound worthy of a new guitar. Was I wrong! In much the same way that many audio products have become smaller and more profoundly excellent, this little amp is amazing. Right out of the box, within 3 minutes I knew that I had made a good purchase. It IS Small, light and does have an eight inch speaker. Close your eyes and you would have no idea that what you are hearing is coming from such a small amp. The Fender Fuse software that is provided by download from the Fender web site adds another layer of presets and is supported by the creativity of other users. An amazing value for such a low cost product.

I got this 2 months ago and at first was pleased, palying with the distorsion effects was neat, hardly noticed the buzz that comes with any of them. I was really impressed with the volume I get out of it.

Now I really wish I had waited for a Mustang III or better yet a tube amp. I use a Voice Live 3 and a cheap Zoom G1xon for guitar effects and these two are not compatible with the Mustang I, if you're looking for a strong clean palying sound.

The onboard effects really need a total off setting so that you can get rid of the feedback and buzz sounds coming out. For a Fender I am disapointed to not be able to get that clean sound. I will save up some more and either go with a Roland CUBE or at least a Mustang III or a small Fender Tube amp. If you still like listening to AM radio, then this will suit you just fine (read as scratchy, interference, and static).

      Comments about Fender Mustang I V.2 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

      The Mustang I has all of the sounds that the bigger Mustang amps have, you just need to use the Fuse software to access the full sophistication of the chipset. The 8" speaker is surprisingly good on the bottom end, probably because the cabinet is closed. I bought this amp to use at church for the effects, and instantly loved the portability and ease of setup. I can just plug in and play, selecting the presets that I've crafted during the week, and can either play through the speaker or go direct from the headphone jack to the board. Any sounds you've created can be saved in your computer and transferred to any other Mustang, so If you set up on a small one and decide to get a bigger one, you will not have to redo them, just download them to the other amp. The Fender community online has hundreds of presets that other guys have made to download, and if you have a sound you want to share, you can upload it for them to use. If you are looking for a modeling amp, I suggest you look at the Fender Mustangs.

      Comments about Fender Mustang I V.2 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Great little practice amp and great for home studio. The mod and rev controls are touchy, sometimes resulting in terrible hum unless set perfectly, once you get used to that its great. Haven't played with downloading yet, as I'm still getting to know what it comes with in the factory presets. Very loud for its size and great amplifier emulatuions.

                Comments about Fender Mustang I V.2 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

                I am very pleased with this amp and like the way it sounds. I bought it so I could have a smaller amp because with my bigger 90 Watt 1x12 amp, I need to set the volume extremely low to use it at home and sometimes it was still too loud. With my small 5" speaker 3 Watt amp the low end bass sounds were distorting when the volume was turned up. Although this 20 Watt amp surprised me with how loud it is, the Master volume control it has gives me exactly the volume I want without compromising the sound quality of the amp. It seems that no matter how low I turn the master volume it still sounds great. Try tilting it for enhanced projection. Using the FUSE software allowed me to import other people's settings to check them out. Then I was able to program the amp with the sounds I wanted. I was able to export my settings so I could save them in case something happened. I purchased the foot switch. It only will switch between 2 sounds, so I set it to switch between my rhythm sound and the same sound with a touch of distortion for leads. With the software you can switch between amp models, speaker cabinets, and add in from a large selection of pedals to tweak your sound. On your computer the effects you add in the software will actually appear as stomp box pedals, which you can place before the amp or place the effect as if it were in the effects loop. You can add up to 4 different kinds of effects. Without the software, on the fly, you can tweak the volume, gain, treble, bass, modulation effects, and delay/reverb. You can quickly save these on the fly settings by pressing the save button. The on the fly effects can be tweaked, but you can really control them precisely using the FUSE software.. I occasionally play music with some friends at their house. This amp allows me to travel as if I was taking along all my pedals, but without the hassle of actually having to carry them around and spend any setup time. I can have everything already saved to the amp and just plug-n-play.
