I am a converted tube snob because of this amp. Do not listen to the bedroom performers who say that tube amps are the only way to get great tone. I made a living playing music and have been fortunate enough to score 2 top ten radio hits and know a thing or two about amps and good tone. I always used tube amps until now. I loved the tone of a good tube amp and and I have used everything from Marshall to Fender and everything in between. You hear a lot of tube snobs talk about the tone and I was one of them but they rarely talk about the other side of owning a tube amp. The maintenance, the weight, having to carry a pedal board with a massive array of effects. The one that always drove me up a wall was how much white noise they produce. A tube amp is very susceptible to line noise from ungrounded or old wiring you can encounter when playing in various venues. Gigging musician's know what I am talking about. It can be very nasty. The Fender Mustang 3 is super quiet, sounds fantastic and only weighs a little over 30 lbs. The effects are great and the pre sets are very sweet. Because the effects and pre sets are so tweakable I only carry the 4 button footswitch, the 2 button footswitch and the expression pedal. I can fit them all in the back of the amp. No more massive pedal board to lug around. My tube amps ( I still own 3) have not left my house since I bought this amp. If you are thinking about this amp don't hesitate it is a great amp. If I have a complaint about this amp it is that the programming is not very intuitive. Give yourself some time to learn all you can do with this amp it is worth the extra time that it takes. If you have any questions about this amp go on youtube and check out the blind comparisons against tube amps, 90% of the people picked this amp thinking they where voting for the tube amp (I was one who did). I do recommend that you get the 4 button switch and run it with the 2 button switch which gives you many options. I don't know if this amp would be for a death metal musician, there is a preset for it but I thought it sounded weak but then again you can tweak it. After 32 years of playing music I have played most all styles at one time or another and this amp does a good job of covering all the bases. I do not know if this amp excepts effects pedals very well I have had no need to use mine but it does have an effects loop for them.

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've had this amp for a few months now, and overall, I am really disappointed. There is no logic to how the modeling is set up. I am still looking for a truly clean sound, but so far haven't found it, and confident that I never will. I didn't want to spend the money for a much cleaner tube amp, but this just can't compete with that. It's like they say, you get what you pay for. If you like lots of gimmicky sounds, you'll probably have fun with this amp, but don't expect to find pure sounds. They simply aren't there. I hate the "hollow" sound of solid state anyway, so what did I expect. :)

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

    I used to run my guitars through our sound system so that it would add a fullness to the entire sound. With the Mustang III V2 and am able to set the amps volume where I like it so the sound comes out of the amps speaker, but with the added XLR outputs on the back of the amp, I can run cables from my amp to the mixing board and get the best of both worlds. The sound is still full and balanced through the sound system and I get the power and directional sound of my new amp.

    On top of that once you understand how the presets on the amp work and how to adjust them etc., you have a whole new world of sounds opened up to you. You can create your own unique tone for guitar solos and will set you apart from other guitarists. I just love this. Also, if you want to try and get some of the tone that other guitarists use, with the option of connecting the amp to your computer and using the Fender Fuse website, you can download numerous presets that others had created to sound like several famous guitarists. You can do so much more.

    From the moment I walked into the music store and plugged a Fender Squire into this amp and was blown away at how good it could make that guitar sound, I knew I had to get this to use with my Fender Strat and Schecter guitars.

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

        I've owned many amps in my life (Marshall, Fender, Line 6, Orange....) and this amp will run with the best of them. For a solid state amp, it has great sound and bottom end. With 100W of power, even volume setting of 4 will supply more sound that you'd typically need. The clean sound is typical Fender and the dirty sounds are fantastic. I bought this for my son and he loves it. I'll be buying a second for my amp collection.

          Twin Reverb = broken back. Mustang IV = strained back. Mustang III = healthy back. All sound good or very good. Mustang III works well. Just have to be smart about turning knobs. Only a very few will know the difference.

              This amp is stellar. At 100 watts it is very powerful, but if you turn the volume down and set the master to 1 or 2, it is perfect for home use. The sound is total Fender and the ability to use the Fuse softwate to tailor your sound makes it extremely versatile. I have a Mustang 2 but purchased the 3 because with on the board ability to tweak different parameters, it makes it much more user friendly than the Mustang 2. This amp is al they say it is. A really great deal.

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

              Here's how you use this amp: Check out the presets and then delete them.

              Build your tone from the ground up using one of the "basic" amps. Fender models are the best of the bunch. Once you have found a tone you like, you can color it by using the onboard pedal simulations.

              I like the Bassman setting so I use the Fender four (really three) button footswitch to toggle between a clean, overdriven, and a somewhat gainy tone - all built around the bassman.

              The speaker cabinet choices make a HUGE difference. The basic 1x12 is very uniderectional. Try out the 2x12 for most applications.

              Is it a tube amp? No. But it can be coaxed to deliver a great tone if you know what you are after. You will have to spend some time fiddling with knobs, but good sounds are in there.

              Once dialed in, forget the fiddling and just play.

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

              I recently started playing again, and joined a band with some old friends. We are focusing on Beatles, and 70s / early 80s. My previous amp was a Peavey Vyper 75 modeling amp, and my main guitar was an Epiphone Les Paul. But I just couldn't get the Beatles type tones I was looking for, so I bought a Fender Telecaster Nashville, but that still didn't make a difference with the Vyper. Then I discovered the Mustang III. This amp has amazing models of Fender amps, and the Vox models are also wonderful. The amp almost has the warmth of a tube amp. The other thing I really like is how easy it is to program with just using the mini lighted LCD screen, and the wide variety of stomp / rack effects. It also has 100 memory locations, vs the Vyper's 12. I also bought the 4 button footswitch so I could have the tuner in clear view on the floor. The amp is also way lighter than the Vyper, and it works every time I use it, unlike the Vyper which doesn't always detect its own footswitch unit.

              Bottom line, if you want a small, light, powerful amp that can mimic most amps on the market pretty convincingly for a reasonable price, then this is your amp!
