Fender G-DEC 3 Fifteen
I only wish this amps or something like it was around when I first started playing the guitar. I think these amps are some of the best practicing and teaching tool available for learning the guitar. This is basically an amp made out of a computer hardrive. Everything is computer and software based as far as editing and usbaility on this amp.

What is fascinating about this amp is the ability to change tones and edit via your computer. When you hook this thing up to your home computer the screen shows the exact same control knobs as you would see on your actual amp.

The tones on this amp are digitally based so you won't have that real tube feel or sound. You also won't have that air that gets thrown from a tube speaker cabinet.

There really isn't a guitar that doesn't sound good with this amp. There are enough sounds and genre specific amp models that accompany single coil guitars as well as humbucking style guitars. I prefer the sound of the humbuckers with this amp. The editing possibilities are really endless with this amp.


At new these amps come in at around $300, which isn't that bad for the computer based amp. The FUSE software is very cool and probably the best feature that comes with this amp. You can also login online and share presets and tone with other users of this amp. Playing with an iod or Mp3 player via the storage playback if very cool. So that helps you play along with out having a drummer and also learning or creating riff to your favorite songs.

Fender G-DEC 3 Fifteen
It is a small amp simulation. Its power is 15watts, which is enough for practice at home. The integrated effects are complete, thereby not toting a slew of pedals.

The connection is basic, and boils down to one guitar input and a headphone jack.


The configuration of this little amp requires a minimum concentration. All is not innate, and reading the manual will probably be beneficial.

Factory presets to find happiness without too much fiddling.


I play mostly rock / progressive metal, and to be quite honest, I find happiness have not been easy: I used to joust Mesa Boogie, with a very precise distortion and dynamic, which is difficult to obtain on the G-DEC. But not impossible! You get what you want if you look closely.

In contrast, we find the heat lamp in the most clear sound, which is a big plus. Beware, however, the increase in volume does not improve the sound (which is the case of the lamp), on the contrary.


I use it for a year for the art and it is quite to such practices. I love the imitation reliable lamp that little beast is capable of providing.

Good quality / price ratio.

Fender G-DEC 3 Fifteen
modeling amp, jack, usd, SD card, headphone front.
footswith, at / in 2nd guitar and back
15 watts rms

infinite settings, including through the software fuse fender.

amazing weight (very heavy for its size small), medium finish (Tolex stuck on a bad angle)


when do you get a good sound easy: Yes, fender amps modeled are very cool and very good simulation marshall and all simplissible to pay via fuse.

the manual is clear (the download) for cons, the amp is full of possibilities and it took me a weekend to understand everything.
apprenhendé once, this amp is great!


I play a lot of rock, it's pretty stupid to say but this fender marshall emulates very well, but of course also the fender. simulation of metal is well suited for good rock, like trust, for example.
the settings are childish on fuse
the presets are not all good, to change with fuse and register according to his tastes


I use it for a week, I was wary at first, the look "car" is not terrible, finishing average, the screen is quite small, but well, ultimately I do not regret it and I will take it.

we must take time to load its backtracks, or track gp exported pm (practice to adjust the tempo or pitch), change the presets according to his tastes etc. ... hack pretty short before playing.
