There was a complaint about no Ableton lite, but since I already had the Mustang 1 it didn't matter to me. The mini 7 has plenty of volume, plenty of range of the 24 programmable choices (Yamaha has 5). Yamaha is better for acoustic electrics. Not tons of bottom end, but more intuitive, more on the go adjustable and save, more for performance some place rather than the "stay at home" feel the Yamaha has. And you can add a foot switch to change between 2 programs if you wish.
I am not into metal and all that. Hendrix is as far as I go. It does have some very fine Fender amp simulations which you can tweak 7 ways to Sunday, and the Twin Reverb is tasty.
Guitars I have run thru it include Guild Starfires, Fender Teles, Reverend 6 guns, Ibanez jazz box, Parker, Ovation VXT. Acoustics: Breedlove, Larrivie, Tacoma, Crafter etc. Pretty broad spectrum, and all sound good, or better than other choices in small amps. The Roland RX is quite nice, but heavy and again almost 3x the price.
It will not sound as good as a regular size Fender twin. Duh. But for what it is, it is brilliant. And the price is ridiculously low for what you get. Mustang 1 is better, but try hauling that to the beach!
The eight amp combos Fender has chosen offer a wide variety of tones from classic twang to modern metal. The picking dynamics also blew me away and show an incredible improvement over earlier modeling amps. In fact, I feel the responsiveness is starting to approaching that of all-tube designs. As you might expect, the classic Fender models sound best with single coil pickups or tapped humbuckers. The Twin Reverb and Bassman models are especially nice with the guitar's volume rolled back and provide true-to-form Hendrix (Little Wing) and Gilmore (Shine On You Crazy Diamond) tones. Singing Texas blues ala SRV are also easily attained with the gain bumped up a bit. Play with your guitar's volume and tone controls and you'll marvel at how many artist's tones can be dialed in. The English crunch tones ala Marshall and Vox are also great for both rhythm and lead settings, but I preferred these using humbuckers with the mids and lows rolled off to increase definition. The only amp models I feel suffer a bit are the two metal models, mostly due to the 6.5" speaker. Plugged into a 4-10" or 2-12" cabinet, these models might really shine as well. Speaking of the small speaker, don't be fooled. While 7 watts isn't enough to stand up to drums, this little thing cranks up plenty loud for a jam session with the boys. Regarding effects, they are very easy to use and can be quickly dialed in from barely perceptible to fully saturated... and the reverb simulations are nothing but incredible.Read more ›
a very popular amp in Amazon.com. I also have an affinity for small mini amps and thought that this
amp would offer a bit of versatility. I was way off. It offers a MASSIVE amount of versatility! Alone
the amp itself has huge potential.
It has 7 Fender amp models and 5 models of other well known amps.You can tweak
presets easily and change what effect is applied with two simple knobs and then save
a especially good preset with a simple button. Since the effects are represented with
letters and numbers it may take a while to memorize, but its the only complaint I have.
Download the Fender FUSE software and the amp becomes even more flexible, allowing you
to access the amp models and customize each preset with multiple effects rather than just
being limited to one per preset without the software. The amp itself has only a treble
tone knob but the software allows you to adjust each amps treble,mid and bass knobs.
The amp itself is a handsome piece of equipment. It has a cool carbon-tweed outer shell and a silver
speaker cover. Its also loud despite its 7 watts and while that may not sound like it gives a lot of
headroom, the Twin setting remains suprisingly clean even at full volume.( just don't turn the gain up
too high.) This amp has surpassed my expectations and I highly recommend it. I am now happily saving up
for either the Fender Mustang IV or the Fender Mustang V head and its matching cabinet.
This is a great little amp. My mountain dulcimer now has more range and sound options than I would have thought possible from an acoustic instrument. Not to mention volume and depth. Right on the unit you can choose from many Fender amp types/sounds from concert hall to clean and crisp to hard metal, and various pedal-type effects. Save ones you like right to the unit as you build them. Headphone jack works great, and you can also connect an external device (MP3 player, smartphone) to play music through the amp for you to accompany. That takes a little adjusting of the play volume of the device and the volume on the amp to get right, but is very cool and creates another dimension of playing opportunities.
Plug the amp into your computer using the USB cable and the FUSE software lets you try nearly endless combinations of amps and adjustable effects, and you can program the ones you like into an amp preset to use anytime without the computer attached.Read more ›
