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