It contains 24 highly accurate on-board amp presets with tones from vintage Fender sparkle to outrageous modern metal distortion, and a bank of 24 built-in effects including chorus, flanging, phasing, tremolo, vibratone, step filter, reverb, echo, octaver and more — 12 modulation effects and 12 delay and reverb effects in all. It’s great for practice and jam sessions, and an 1/8” headphone jack lets you play loud, even if only for yourself. Further, connect Mustang I to your computer with free Fender FUSE software. Open up a world of possibilities, including on-screen parameter control, deep editing, additional effects, unlimited preset storage, online preset swapping with the Fender FUSE community, and free Fender artist presets. An optional single-button footswitch controls two quick-access presets.

HIGH-SPEED

Mustang™ I and II contain 24 highly accurate on-board amp presets with tones from vintage Fender® sparkle to outrageous modern metal distortion. Arranged in three banks of 8, all 24 amp presets are easily and instantly accessed right out of the box with only a twist of a single knob. Plug in and you’re up and running.

AMPED-UP

Shape your tone with a huge bank of 24 built-in effects including chorus, flanging, phasing, tremolo, vibratone, step filter, reverb, echo, octaver and more — 12 modulation effects and 12 delay and reverb effects in all. Mustang™ amps pack it all into a striking visual design. Sleek and modern Fender® styling provides a look that’s as desirable as the sound.

Fender Mustang I Amp
LOUD

Mustang I and II sound great at any volume, and although they’re the smallest members of the family, their closed-back cabinets and Fender Special Design speakers pump serious volume. The 20-watt Mustang I and the 40-watt Mustang II are great for practice and jam sessions. An 1/8” headphone jack lets you play loud, even if only for yourself.

USB CONNECTIVITY

Connect Mustang to your computer with free Fender® FUSE™ software. Open up a world of possibilities, including on-screen parameter control, deep editing, additional effects, unlimited preset storage, online preset swapping with the Fender® FUSE™ community, and free Fender artist presets.

Control Panel

Mustang runs from a very simple control interface, which includes gain, volume, treble, bass, master, preset select, modulation select, delay/reverb select, save button, exit button, tap tempo button — all easily navigated.

Amp Modeling

Mustang™ I and II contain 24 highly accurate onboard amp models with tones from vintage Fender® sparkle to outrageous modern metal distortion. Easily connect to your computer to add to the number of amp models, too.

Mustang™ I and II give you 24 individual amp presets arranged in three banks of 8 (i.e., three ’57 Deluxe™ presets, three Brit ’60s presets, etc.). These presets are easily and instantly dialed up using the “preset” knob (or from your footswitch or computer). Turn this knob to scroll through each of the three preset banks, which are indicated on the control panel by LED columns colored amber, green and red.

The red and green banks are for creating your own presets; the amber bank can only be modified using Fender® FUSE™ software.

Modulation Effects

Mustang further sculpts your sound with 12 sweeping, swooping and shimmering adjustable modulation effects, including chorus, phaser, flanger, vibratone, tremolo, step filter and octaver. Use your computer to add more effects, too.

MUSTANG™ I & MUSTANG™ II modulation effects control knob
Delay / Reverb Effects

Mustang makes the room resound with 12 easily adjustable delay and reverb effects ranging from subtle to cavernous, including tape delay, stereo/mono delay and room/plate/hall reverb.

Mustang I and II each have 24 effects controlled by two simple selection knobs on the control panel. The first knob (“MOD”) controls 12 modulation effects; the second (“DLY/REV”) controls 12 delay/reverb effect

MUSTANG™ I  Effect Level Controls

The MOD and DLY/REV knobs share the same three selection indicator LEDS. These LEDS are numbered 1, 2, and 3, and they correspond to the three positions within each of the selection ranges, labeled A, B, C and D on each knob (see the Mustang I/II manual for a table listing the effects selection for each knob). Use the LEDs to determine exactly which position the knob is pointing to (using the factory settings of the “MOD” knob, for example, position 1 in the A selection range gives you chorus, position 2 in the A selection range gives you deep chorus, and position 3 in the A selection range gives you flanging).

Adjusting the effects levels on Mustang I and II couldn’t be easier—simply hold down the “EXIT” button while turning the “MOD” or “DLY/REV” knobs. Doing this adjusts “how much” of a particular effect you’ll get, according to your personal preference.

USB Connection

Mustang includes USB connectivity for high-quality, low-latency audio output, and to engage the Fender® FUSE™ software application for PC and Mac. This opens up a world of possibilities, including on-screen parameter control, deep editing, unlimited preset storage, online preset swapping with the Fender® FUSE™ community, and free Fender artist presets.

Tuner

Onboard chromatic tuner puts intonation right on the money quickly and easily.

Onboard Chormatic Tuner

Sleek and modern Fender styling provides a look that’s as desirable as the sound. Mustang has Fender’s classic silver grille cloth, and is covered in tough, great-looking “carbon tweed” black textured vinyl.

For being a small amp it sounds great.
Jerry W. Sullivan
The presets sound great by themselves, but you can also spend hours tweaking the sounds with the Fender Fuse software.

A great practice amp, but good enough you could use it for a small gig.

I bough this amp for my 9 year old son who is learning guitar for his Christmas present. I thought that since I love Fender guitars and since he has a mini Squier we'd like to get something in the Fender Family. I seriously expected a cheap imitation of a Line 6 Spider with a Fender logo slapped on it. I should have had more faith in Fender.

I am blown away by the sounds that come out of this amp. The AMP models are far more real and interesting sounding than any modeling tool I have ever used. The amps don't sound digital or processed, they actually sound overdriven when you crank the gain. You would swear that there are tubes in this thing when you listen to it. I can't get over the Bassman, the twin Reverb and the Deluxe. They sound so full and strong.

My biggest compliment of the Mustang is that it is the ONLY modeling amp that has great sounding Vintage tones. Line 6 has tons of metal stuff, and a lot of weird niche tones. Vox has never really made great modeling stuff. Digitech sounds super processed and the vintage tones are terrible.

If you play Blues, Rock, Classic Rock, Country, Funk etc... This amp is for you. There is just enough metal or heavy sounds to have a few choices for Modern Metal, but Metalheads might be better off with the Line 6 stuff.

The other great thing about this amp is how easy it is to tweak the tones using the amp controls. By looking at the controls, you know right where you are and what you have to do to edit your sound. You don't need to dive 5 levels deep into an LCD screen in order to make great sounding tweaks.

But if you like to go deep, you'll love the Fender Fuse software. It is easy to use and there are countless user submitted tones to help shape your sound.

Have had this amp for a few weeks and my son and I can't stop messing with it. We are constantly finding new sounds. Connecting the online software gives you even more sounds and more control. We have dialed in everything from an old Fender Bassman to a Vox AC30 to a Marshall with so many effects that you'll never need a pedal again. Unreal for $!00.

I was skeptical about this amp, since it was so cheap, yet had all these features. Youtube and the Fender website allowed me to watch videos that impressed me. I took a chance and decided to go with the Mustang 1. I am glad I took the risk, cause this amp is simply amazing. First, without the software, it would make an incredible amp, combined with the FUSE software, it is over the top! With Fuse, you can add nearly any effect, and alter the effects just like you could on real pedals, so much more in depth and detailed than even my expensive multi-effects units! Fuse is simple to use as well, although the other 2 software programs, Ableton and Amplitube, do NOT impress me. Ampltube works, but I don't know what it is used for other than bypassing the Mustang and playing through your PC speakers. Ableton just doesn't seem to work. It loads up, and I can tell that it's working, but I can't get it to record ( which was one of the reasons I was interested in this amp ). The amp itself is simple to use, looks very handsome, and has great sound quality. The amp and FUSE alone are worth the price! I can really care less about Amplitube or Ableton. Pure genius, to make an easy to use amp with the effects built in. No more lugging around extra pedals or cables ! Thank you Fender, it's the things like this that keep me loyal to you.

I agree with most of the reviews here. Combined with the Fuse software I think Fender has set a new standard at this price and the competition may need to follow. It is not a perfect amp and the way it functions is not for everyone, but the Mustang I is a great value at the current price.

Volume & Tone:
Subjective subject but the Mustang I has really good tone & volume considering the price & size. Clean tones were important to me so I narrowed my choice to this or the Vox Valvetronix VT+ series while testing amps at Guitar Center. The cheapest Vox VT+ (has a tube) sounded sweeter and louder through the 8 inch speaker, but it also cost more. For my purposes: practice, small jam sessions, and personal recording this was the best choice. If I was planning to primarily gig with the amp or play with a drummer/large ensemble I would have spent more $ and purchased a Vox VT+. The Mustang II is also a louder option, but at that price range I think there are better choices for live performance.

Pros:
-The most versatile modeling amp in this price range. The caveat is you have to hook it up to a computer with the included Fender Fuse software to bring out all the versatility and near limitless tones. I didn't see it in the product description so I'll point out that with Fuse you can overwrite all 24 presets. With the amp alone you can only overwrite 16 presets.
-Good tones; wide range of models; some are better than others. As with any modeling amp, just don't expect the models to sound as good as the real amp in a side by side comparison.
-I tested with my bass guitar and it sounds good AT LOW VOLUME.
-Includes a USB cable over 6' long and some lite versions of recording and performance software (which I haven't used).
