Fender Mustang II
Just like all the other mustang versions from fender this is the amp modeling attempt from Fender. The sounds from this unit are mostly based off of Fender amps from the 60's but it does have a few modern sounds to it as well.

This is a one speaker combo rated at 40 watts. It may not sound like much but it does get pretty loud. You aren't going to find any tubes inside since it is a solid state machine. So the natural tube feel and tone are what is missing in this product.

SOUNDS

I really don't like amp modeling but there have been a few exceptions to the rule for me. There are some presets on here that are quite enjoyable to play such as the British Steal and the Supersonic. You can get some good David Gilmore tones with the supersonic feature and get some mean 80's metal tones from the British Steal. You can probably guess at to which tone they got this preset from?

OVERALL OPINION

While the tones from this amp aren't going to put you in the recording studio, it does have some usable and fun sounds for bedroom playing. At new these units come in at around $200. Not a bad price for this, but honestly I dig the tone from the Roland amp modeling a little bit more. The cleans on this amp are outstanding and would be hard to beat. However, the dirty channels are a big disappointment for me.

I would recommend this amp to any beginner guitar player who needs an all in one amp for clean, dirty, and effects to go along with it.

Fender Mustang II
it is pure digital, so no lights
This amp has a 12'' HP. It's 40W sending good! That is why I no longer was using the headphone jack at home not to wake the whole house.
standard connectivity: 1 input jack, 1 footswitch jack, AUX 1 (very handy for backing tracks or play the favorite songs), 1 headphone mini-jack (3.5mm), 1 output jack on the rear ( 6.3 mm), USB output for connection to a PC (essential if you want to fully take advantage of the amp)
For effects, go to the fender site.

UTILIZATION

USE side, it is extremely simple and intuitive. Some presets are very good, so you can play from the outset without fiddling for hours.
Moreover, with Fuse (free), you can customize finer amp (like hidden buttons), adjust the speed of time, select the insertion order effects in the chain (pre / post amp). Finally, if you want to get THE sound of your idol, just go to search a user preset that has taken the time and care to share with the community fuse.
I put 8/10 because it absolutely need a PC to take full advantage of the amp.
At the same time, you can quickly download sounds that would perhaps never found a classic amp.

SOUNDS

HIS side, I found the excellent modeling: I love the clean sounds Fender Twin Reverb, I love the crunch and upsetting the Deluxe Reverb, Champ, Bassman, Princeton. As for the big sound, I made a great discovery, always with the Fender Supersonic. The other models Vox and Marshall are also very friendly. They even modeled amps rather metal, but as it is not my style, I do not really have an opinion on the matter.
As for the effects, there is something to find happiness between different delays, distortion, compressor, wah, tremolo, chorus, phaser, reverb etc..

Suits my style: rock, blues, jazz
I played it with a Fender Strat U.S., Gibson Les Paul Studio, a Godin Artisan ST1.

9/10, because I think the lights are essential, even if I find that the fender models meet the dynamic game in my humble opinion.

OVERALL OPINION

In Summary, this is a great amp, simple and very efficient (it is not a gas plant), offering unbeatable value for those who want some great clean sounds, crunch and overdrive without breaking the bank with a minimum of effects to sound like ...
40W issued the permit to play in a group, but also the headphones at home. Therefore, ideal for beginners and even experienced.
I used it for 6 months then I sold it ... to buy its big brother the Fender Mustang floor more cut to make the scene.

I would do this choice without hesitation.

I had a Line6 POD2 home for 10 years, and how to say, well there was a revolution in 10 years, in any case, Fender has made! Congratulations to them!

If I had to break the wallet for a pure lights, I probably would direct to a Fender Delux Reverb that I love, even if the supersonic, twin reverb and the field also have their character.

guilhem001's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A very nice amp"

Fender Mustang II
See other reviews below

Can be a shame to have limited effects modulation / delay / reverb

An auto-wah has been nice example

UTILIZATION

Fairly simple configuration when you understand the principle.

Some kinks: Using the tuner is not very practical (why have positioned LEDs in fashion ABCDEFG then he would have more practical and logical to have the LEDs according to the order of the strings: EBGDAE)
Unfortunate that no midrange knob on the amp, it would have been useful for overdriven sounds.

So far only used in standalone mode, I'll try shortly connection with a computer.

SOUNDS

Purchased for home use.
Fender sounds are very good and quite impressive at first impression. Of course this is not a tube amp but it's not bad for the price.
Other amp simulations are good, but require a bit of configuration work.

OVERALL OPINION

Corresponds very well to use as I wanted to be: at home and share it with my son who also plays guitar.
Used in rehearsal with a group, it behaves very well. Adequate power, good size sound with HP 12 inches.
Compared to the other guitarist has a Marshall 100 DFX MGD ... there is no photo ...
This is not a pro amp, I much prefer my other tube amps, but it is a good value, especially used (but there is little to sell for now). Very good buy for a beginner.

skymalt's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Complete modeling! I love this amp!"

Fender Mustang II
Everything has already been said above, I do not want to spam the page ...
This is the 40W version of the Fender Mustang I which is only 15W, if you have a nag drummer!

UTILIZATION

Upon first impression the amp seems extremely simple to use, you are entitled to five knobs basic amp, that is to say, Gain, Volume, Treble, Bass and Master and multiple entries that reveal the nature this amp and effects knobs and simulation.
It is relatively poor physical buttons compared to its size and amps in the same price range. The amp models and built-in effects are successful, to say nothing of that side!

on the other hand, if you want to get the most out of this amp there should be a computer! Indeed, it comes with the Fender Fuse software to create the sound you want from a cave of Ali Baba and effects settings are not present on the physical buttons for the most part.

With that said, as soon as I plugged the receiver was asked to update ... It makes you wonder if this is an amp or a computer? Well (purists beware!) This amp is indeed a pure digital tool. Nevertheless it is extremely (yes I love that word ..) easy to use than either physically or with the Fuse software and you quickly get the sound you want, not to mention the countless downloadable presets on internet.

I had to look into the manual to understand what the differences ente many small lights when selecting the effect, without the manual I do would surely not out ..

SOUNDS

I only play the, the Rock and Metal Blues, and I was surprised at the sound quality to be drawn from this big box! The sounds are clear, as usual Fender, very precise, crystalline and pleasing to the ear. Same for blues and rock, but it is quite a hack to find a good metal sound, despite the integrated "Metal 2000" effect that is frankly a hearing pourritude, in fact I wonder if they deliberately to incorporate a preset as bad ...

With that said some built-in effects such as "Metal 2000" or "supersonic" are drafts but it's probably because of my guitar (a Squier Affinity Strat HSS, a beautiful rusty shovel, I know ..) I can tweak software for sound with a beautiful Trash Metal distortion well as it should. Anyway we not really buy a Fender for the TRASH THAT DEATH METALCORE TEU ..

But once you master Fuse and physical buttons, play with this amp is a real treat!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost two months and I am very satisfied! Besides, I do play them now with my old Fender Frontman 15G.

I love his side "computer" and manipulated endlessly side not purists will surely please fans of Marshall and Mesa Boogie.
What I like least is that there are not many physical buttons and some effects are virtually useless.

I tried a lot of small amps before and the price range is he who beat all!
The value is incredible, I would not hesitate for a second if it was twice as expensive!
I would do this choice, of course! This amp is the master of modeling in its price range, to take again!
