The Fender Mustang I is a 20-watt, modelling amplifier, offering 8 amplifier models and 24 different on board effects.
The Fender Mustang brings the world of modelling and computer capability to a whole new range of musicians. Together with IK Multimedia, Fender has created a complete performing and recording packaging that has limitless possibilities. The supplied FUSE software enables the user to manipulate the patches stored on the amplifier and create their own tones using different amp types, speaker types and effects. The modelled amplifiers are the Fender '57 Deluxe, Fender '69 Bassman, '65 Twin Reverb, Super-Sonic as well as the classic Marshall like tones of the '60's and '80's plus the familiar growl of the Mesa Boogie Rectified tone. The amplifiers USB port enables direct connectivity between the amp and you computer, not only allowing instant editing of the on board sounds, but the amplifier also becomes a recording interface so you can record directly from your amp into your DAW (Cubase, Sonar, Garageband etc.) An on-board tuner makes for one less extra item to take to a recording session as well as having a stereo input jack for when you want to play along to your favourite tracks from an MP3 or CD player, plus there is a stereo headphone out for when you get asked to turn the rock and roll down a bit.

Fantastically versatile starter amp
Posted on 05/07/2012 by Pete Morley
I'd been shopping around for amps for a while and I needed something a little more versatile to replace my old Peavey practice amp. After shopping around and having a play on a couple of Orange amps and a similarly priced Marshall, I decided to pick up a Fender Mustang I.
The Mustang I comes equipped with one instrument input, a footswitch input, aux, headphones as well as a USB connection. Various knobs and dials run along the top, right where you'd expect them. Gain, Volume, Treble, Bass and a Master volume. Selecting a preset loads up pre-defined settings for your Gain, Volume, Treble, Bass, so whatever they're initially set to will be ignored until you physically dial in another setting on the control knobs. It's surprisingly quiet compared to my old practice amp, there's very little buzz or noise unless I'm deliberately trying to make some with the guitar. That on board tuner comes in handy too.
The Mustang's main selling point for me was FUSE. Fender FUSE is a fantastic piece of software that lets you connect your PC or Mac and download presets straight on to the amp. I'm really impressed with some of the in-built presets, effects and amp models. I've had no need to pull out my overdrive or chorus pedals due to the Mod presets, and there's a healthy amount of reverb and delay to choose from. The amp models are fantastic; a particular favourite is the Super-Sonic model, which seems to be insanely dynamic on the high notes. I can't really emphasise how much FUSE expands this amp and the sounds you can get out of it. The potential for a community driven amp is just insane.
The Mustang also comes with Fender versions of Ableton and Amplitude. While I feel that Amplitude falls a bit short when compared with FUSE, it's still an awful lot of great software for Fender to 'throw in'.
Although I'm having a blast with my Mustang I, in retrospect, after getting it home I should probably have paid that little bit extra for the Mustang II. The features of both amps are identical, but the jump from 20 to 40 watt is worth considering if noise isn't an issue. The plus side is that I've not lost any of the features of its bigger brother by going for the Mustang I.
