It's awesome! But wait there's more..!
Well, Right out of the box there's this wonderful looking amplifier. But wait! When you take out the amp from the cardboard box, there's free candy inside! And who doesn't love free candy?
The fender mustang 1 packs a bunch of features from wonderful Fender amp emulations and a vox, a marshall, and even a mesa! I don't know how good those are compared to real tube amps, but who cares? They sound awesome, and when you're looking for an amp to start off with, you want something that gives you authentic sweet responsive sounds and also some effects! Did i mention effects??? There are so many effects on this thing it's amazing! Phasers, Chorus, Reverb, Octaver, etc...
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!!! When you install the fender fuze software, connect your amp to your computer via USB and you mess around inside of Fuze just a little bit. Like 3 minutes. You find out, OH MY GOODNESS!!! There are overdrive and distortion effects in it as well!! You can only use one of those two pre amp, and another one post amp, but come on! ALL the effects you need for the amateur in ONE AMP for $110 Dollars??? In addition to that there is a full map of your effects chain, you can have up to 8, FREAKING EIGHT!!!! effects on one preset, and there are 32 presents. The description from fender, and the videos on youtube cannot do this powerhouse justice.
And for those of you looking for something that responds like a tube amp, but you're not a total nerd about it, this will do just fine. If you roll back the volume knob, even the marshal will clear up, but when you roll it back, it GAIN GALORE~~~
So My Verdict is:
If you want to spend less than 100 usd to buy an amp, spend the extra and buy this, it's super loud, super versatile, and has sweet effects.
AND it comes with Ableton Live 8 Lite--basically everything a beginning or even semi-pro guitar player needs to record his sick licks. Your Amp records your sounds via USB into Ableton, so it's only 1 conversion of data, analogue to digital directly.
SO Long Suckers, I'm going to Rock out on my Mustang 1!
