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:

    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.

    Great amp with easy controls as compared to other modeling amps. Would be nice if it held the sound you're on when you shut it off

      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!

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

        I own 2 mustangs I bought the first about 4 years ago it is a mustang ii Great little amp I have used it in our church and is stays there I play it 3 times a week. I used a Line 6 spider for about 5 years on gigging
        ( Church ) and it failed me so I needed a new amp. So I bought a Fender Mustang iii v2 and it is perfect. It is warm and light and powerful. I had to Mic the line 6 and the mustang ii but with the mustang iii v2 it has XLR direct outs and I LOVE that and they are adjustable, Just run a mic cable from amp to P.A.
        Some have said it is difficult to use, maybe but not for me spend a little time to pre setup the channels when you practice make the small changes to the channel you have set up and save changes. My other guitarist said he loves the way it cuts through the mix. LOTS clearer than the Line 6 very very happy with this amp. Yes it is a modeling amp and you have a lot of stomp box and amp models to use. OR pick a channel take everything out and have a clean channel; and use a aftermarket foot pedal. Very versatile. I even set up a channel for my hollow body so I go from an Ibenez hollow to a PRS electric and just change the channel with the 4 button foot switch

            This was my first real amp, other than the little basic one that came with the guitar. I wanted one that I could use for tons of different tones and effects. This is a great amp. I would recommend it.

                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. :)
