Nice user reviews that helped me make the move to get the Mustang 3. I tried the amp in a local store and all the built in fx were controllable on the LCD display which was practically self explanatory. It let me choose out of 17 amps all of which are famous modeled amps. Then it let me pick up to 5 effects and place any of them in before amp or after amp mode. Nice stereo after amp effects. These fx are filled with controls. Gotta hear it in stereo headphones. I love classic rock music and I was able to select a British 80s Marshall model setting the speaker SIM to 4x12M stack. Place the Ranger Boost in front of amp SIM and It really does a great Marshall with the 4x12M speaker SIM. The fx are hands down best of the modeling amps and many are stereo post rack type or in front of the amp m Just like a real amp setup the order of the pedals changes the flavor of the sound. The Green box pedal effect is even better than Screamer as it lets a bypass blend of fx. This amp does great classic rock sound. The Twin is the best modeler by far with compression chorus and stereo delay. Tubelike for sure. Factory presets are weak because when turning up loud the headroom is to dynamic. Just adding the compressor fx in front of each patch will correct this bad factory programming. This will also emulate what a tube amp does naturally which is nail the sweet spot. Always add half sec delay tad of reverb to give a live sound and there you have it. No matter what a tube snob tells you this amp will record better every time with stereo xlr outputs that are incredibly accurate and noise less. Always use the noise gate. There is also a Studio Amp preset to take pedals into the amp and it really enhances the heat of the sound. Any distortion pedal or booster becomes more dynamic thru this preset. The Free downloadable Fuse librarian editor is a must have. So easy and cool to use. All the amps and knobs visually accurate. The best software on any modeling amp for sure.

This Amp is fantastic for recording. It has tons of pre-amp effects and models other great amps pretty well. I was disappointed with the inability to get a good clean channel out of it. The 2 button switch bounces you back and forth between various amp models and settings. Perhaps others have figured out how to get it clean and make the pedal more functional. It's complicated in my opinion and has left me seeking something much more simple. The amp itself sounds fantastic. It just does way more than I need or understand.

Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

I had been playing through a Vox AC4C1 in the pursuit of nobility and respectability for about eleven months. Eventually, I succumbed to my need for tons of different sounds and the ability to over-distort my sound as I pleased. I know, it's considered more socially acceptable and morally right to collect several tube amps and tons of pedal to achieve all the sounds you'd find in a Mustang amp. But you know what? I'm sick of guitarist dogma. This amp allows you great range, and you should be able to find or create a lineup of go-to sounds that bolster your playing style. What makes it even better is the ability to also try wildly different tones than you might invest in were you to buy all your amps and effects one at a time. This thing is also loud enough to eat the stitching out of any pair of pants. This is not an amp for guitarists, but an amp for utilitarians - and that's high praise.

    Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    After using the Mustang 3 in particular it is about the best amp for every live application. It is small and loud and portable. The left and right xlr stereo outputs are absolutely perfectly tuned to reproduce the most accurate response of any amp I have ever used directly to a PA. Micing just cannot hold a candle to it, and no feedback problems remotely possible. This is a big deal. No matter how good you think your amp sounds the live feed is what the audience actually hears, especially in stereo with stereo fx. Really makes the sound come alive. The metal 2000 with a Greenback cab SIM is the best classic rock crunch I have ever heard. All tones balanced perfectly and I would compare it to the Peavey Triple X which is an awesome amp. Also the Twin and Deluxe are the best Clean amps. The only amp that could hold a candle to this amp for live use is its bigger brother the Mustang 4 because it is Stereo in and Out and it is 150 watts but it is also 2 12 speakers and larger and heavier. I love the sound of many amps like Peavey and Marshall and Vox but I can say emphatically that the Mustang is the best live feed I have heard. It sounds identical to the amp and even punchier cause it is direct to a PA. It's a bigger speaker system. Also can say that the Return input of the amp fx send is Fat and beefy with external multiFX. They sound much better than going on the front of the amp because they are not using anything but straight power amp. The Metal 2000. I try many amps and own a few tube amps, but this amp sounds better in the PA especially. I will never Mic again. The recordings direct to multitrack are beyond compare. Headphones are adjusted perfectly as well and are stereo. Using the Ranger Boost SIM as a distortion driver is one of the best I have heard sounds great in front of The SuperSonic and Marshall SIM. Pushing it thru the Vox SIM is exceptional. This amp is the most versatile amp ever.

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I was looking for a modeling amp that could be used for practice or performance with headphone, aux in, lots of presets, especially of the clean variety - also effects loop so I could use my looper pedal. This amp does it all and more! Get it.

      I already own a Mustang IV that I gig with and thought it would be great to have this as my recording and practice amp. It has been great. The version V2 has more capabilities than the original. Love editing and making new presets. Versatile sounds.. Like downloading from fuse program and sharing files.

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I own a Mustang IV first generation and Love that amp. I needed the smaller to practice at home an do recordings instead of moving around the larger of the two. This V2 version is just as good if not better than the IV. Lots of presets and adjustable to my liking, easy to use and capable for live performances mic'd. I play different styles and it has everything you need.

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I use this amp at home. Possibly more power then I need but a good price, Fender quality and reputation,and plenty of sound/amp selections. I also had experience with the Fuse program from my first Mustang 2 and then my gdec 3 30 so this amp was no problem. Fuse recognizes either the Mustang or gdec amp which ever is plugged in plus all the presets from my 2 can be loaded onto the 3. Unfortunately the gdec presets can't but with more amp choices I can pick from the possibilities are unlimited. I am enjoying this amp and I do find that although you can make changes through the amp itself the Fuse program gives you more. I purchased this amp first on reviews and then an MusciansFriends reputation which to me is top rated 5 stars. I also read reviews to get other owners tips and suggestions. Fender forum is also good for this. This is a keeper for me.

          Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          This amp is perfect for a practice amp for eliminating the use of pedals and being able to quickly switch between channels. I feel like the footswitch is a little slow, but other than that I couldn't have asked for a better amp. Keep in mind though that when you're changing presets, your guitars don't all sound the same, and that even though you may get a preset perfect and love it through the guitar you're playing when you customize it, another one of your guitars may not give you the sound you were looking for through the same settings and that you'll have to make different custom channels or slightly alter different presets to get the sound you're looking for with some of your guitars. Other than that, it's perfect!
