Best Fender Mustang For You - Modelling Amp Guide

USB Recording Connectivity
You don't need a separate audio interface to track guitar. Just use the USB recording output on the Mustang and get studio quality guitar tracks straight onto your PC.

Included software from Ableton & IK Multimedia mean you can record, mix and tinker to your hearts content.

Fender FUSE allows you to get into some deep editing on your sounds, as well as storing unlimited patches onto your PC.

Download backing tracks and patches from your favourite artists too. Including:
  • Bad Religion
  • Eric Johnson
  • Cannibal Corpse
  • John 5
  • Ozomatli
  • Steve Vai
All the model numbers, lists of effects and digital connections available the world of modelling amplifiers can be even more bewildering than the watts, channels & effects loop of their analogue brothers. So we've come up with a handy guide to help you pick the right modelling amp, whether you need it for home, the practice room or the stage.

Fender have a rich heritage of amp making, from the original blues machine, the Deluxe through the Bassman, clean Twin and crunchy Champ. Now imagine all those classic sounds condensed into one portable package. Because modelling amps don't require giant transformers and a hefty chassis they won't do your back in either.

With a recent update to V.2 (making the current Mustangs V1.2) you get a few more great models and effects included:

Amps

'57 Twin - Classic cleans and crunch in one

Studio Preamp - For sweet, sparkling cleans.

'60s Thrift - A grungy little amp unique to the Mustang.

British Watts - Big UK tone, stacks of sound.

British Colour - A famous amp, particularly popular in recent years.

Pedals

Ranger Boost - Fender don't use exact names but we're willing to bet this is based on the germanium Rangemaster pedal. Much loved by Rory Gallagher and used by Eric Clapton in the 70's.

Green Box - Could it be a famous Russian fuzz?

Orange Box - There's a couple of classic orange overdrives, the MXR Distortion+ and Boss DS-1.

Black Box - Less candidates for a big black distortion of doom, the Rat rules.

Big Fuzz - No prizes for this one, a classic fuzz used by guitarists beyond count.

So that's the exciting new recreations of classic guitar gear for all the Mustang series. But what sets them apart? From the handy Mustang I to the hefty Mustang V, whether you're after a beginner's amp or a seasoned pro there's a Mustang for you.
