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 first thing you need to know is that this is a digital modeling amp. It has no unique sound of its own. What is does have is the ability to sound shockingly similar to untouchably expensive amps that are out there. I love my Line 6 gear for recording, but as one would hope, no one can model a Fender sound like Fender. Want a Twin Reverb but dont have over a grand to spend? You'll be shocked at how close this comes. If youve never used modeling gear before, you will find it confusing at first. Take advantage of YouTube and you'll figure it out pretty quickly. If you dont have real recording gear, you can record through the USB. This amp shines in the clean settings. If you wanna play metal, get a Peavey Raptor. If you wanna play Rock, Country, Blues or Jazz, this little guy will make you smile. All the presets are editable through your computer, giving you a a huge amount of control, while keeping the controls on the amp "relatively" simple. This amp would be a steal at twice the price.

          You really cannot beat this amp for its price range. I played the Vox, the Line 6, a frontman, and some minis. This sounds better than most and is way cheaper. I hemmed and hawed over whether to get the Vox or this. This was on sale and the Vox was not. I am glad I got this one, the Vox was not worth an extra 70. Overall, I'm very pleased. This is great for playing at home and has enough features to keep you entertained.

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

          I was looking for an inexpensive amp that had a headphone output and, wow, this fit the bill! Sounds great through headphones. Sounds great through its own speaker, even at low volumes. The effects are very useful and sound good. They're a little hard to dial back, and not having a full owner's manual doesn't help. (The "quick start guide" refers you to an online owner's manual, but the only one online is for the v1 amps, which look significantly different from this v2 amp.)

          I don't know how true-to-sound the amp models are, but the 59 Bassman and the 65 Twin Reverb sound great clean. The Twin and the "British 60s" also sound great overdriven.

          I like that everything is preset when you first turn to it - tone, gain, volume (not master volume), effects levels. Then you can tweak it to your heart's content.

          I really wish this had been available 20 years ago when I first started playing. This would be a great first amp. It's also a a great addition to my tube amps, which really need to be loud to sound their best.

          I wouldn't use this for gigging, but for practice and recording it is fine.

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

          This amp is very different from any amp I own or have used, though in a good way. It's very fun, very light, very portable. Clean, the sound is warm, beautiful, full, chiming, and distinctively Fender. Distorted though, the amp alone doesn't sound too much different than my VOX VT20+ (which alone has more presets and effects plus 10 more watts of power due to the use of preamp power tubes along with being a little bit warmer in tone), which means they both sound fine, better than a lot of solid state amp distortion, but they don't stand up against the real deal tube amps. HOWEVER, if you download Fender Fuse and really customize, the tone is the closest to actual "tube tone" as I've come in any modeling amp. As a matter of fact, I made presets to mimic each amp I own, plus made a small version of my pedal board and effects. That's important for someone who needs to downsize their gear and/or is limited in space. It loses a star with me due to the extremely slow set up of the third party software plus the ridiculous lengths it's taken me to download it all and because the amp alone just sounds fine distorted and the effects are hard to really get set up to the discerning ear. All in all, it's sturdy, very attractive looking, loud enough for maybe a small solo performance (think coffee house style), and the combo of software and customization means it's a keeper for me, and well worth the money. Arrived fast (early even) and in great condition thanks to Musician's Friend!

          I GOT THIS AMP to play with my ancient 1946 Gibson electric archtop....I wanted something very easy to carry around..and something with some good reverb and echo effects...and a nice tight sound..and this amp has all that...it sounds great with this Gibson...I use the twin reverb setting and add some extra reverb....it has a nice punchy pleasing sound..loud enough for small quiet gigs for sure.....I still have a mustang II which has been on my front porch for 4 or 5 years and I use it to play outside but it is too boomy with an archtop..I did not get a cd rom with this mustang I, to access the fuse fender software and when you plug in the usb cable TO THE AMP, NOTHING HAPPENS...this is a comlete waste...so you can not tweak any amp models and save them like I could on the mustang II.,,so this amp , even though advertised as being user programmable, apparently it is not...don't buy it thinking that you can tweak the amp models.......but it is a good one trick pony.....it has 3 fender amp model presets ..besides the twin reverb..it has bassman and tweed..but I did not like them very much..the other miscellaneous amp models presets are god awful sounding but stoner teenagers would probably use them.....I feel this amp is well worth the money for my purpose...I play solo jazz standards and old 1930s music on guitar and some gypsy music and it sounds really good on this amp and it sounds like a fender...and its very light weight...and it doesn't need tubes..it doesn't hiss...or pop....and these amps are rugged...and are a bargain....I have a vox pathfinder which I can gladly now throw in the garbage, for my needs it can not compare to this Mustang I,,

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

              I'm getting too old to lug the Fender twin around so I am downsizing and need something with a pint-size punch. An amp I can just throw in the back or front seat of the car, set-up on a picnic table or some other type of small intimate setting and then jump, jive and wail This amp fits the bill. It's small but loud. I mostly use the "57 Deluxe" setting to play my "Classic Vibe" Telecaster thru. It has that classic Fender clean sound which is what I wanted. All of the modeling effects are there and it even has a USB port. An amp with a USB port ? Go Figure ! So if you want to go play on the Fender wesite and interface with their modeling software you have that option. It comes with the USB interface cable. The acoustic sounds really good thru it. You have to back the gain off of it for a clean acoustic sound.There is an optionable footswitch you can buy that lets you switch from one "saved sound model" to another. So for the money and what I need it for I am happy with it. It's a nice amp with all the "stuff". I gave it four stars because it's kinda dinky and has no low-end and I come from the land of the monster Fender Twin Reverb mentality and I just can't bring myself to give it a 5 star rating.

                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.
