Fender Mustang II Amplifier Review

This review was submitted by Guitar Jar contributor: Jose

When you buy yourself an electric guitar for the first time, you also are going to need an amplifier, and as everyone knows, amplifiers brands are a lot less famous than guitar brands.

…This is a great amplifier for beginners…

Fender Mustang IISo, in that case you start searching the internet to find what people think that could be a good deal for a novice.

After a few searches, with a price in mind, I finally found an amplifier, a new one, by a famous an old brand: The Fender Mustang II.

Features:

What makes it so interesting at first look it’s that it comes with twenty-four different amp modelling.

Without touching anything you’ll have plenty of options to use, you can go from heavy and drenching distortion to nice cleans and all the range in-between.

Additionally you can modify all this pre-sets and make them sound as you wish; you add or suppress the typical values as Bass, Treble, and Gain… but also you can add a few effects built-in.

Ease of use:

One can think that having so many options make the amplifier a hard piece to deal with, but it’s absolutely not; it’s very simple and also very intuitive.
A good crafted buttons make you change between modelling and add the effects.

Sound Quality:

Maybe the biggest problem comes when you speak about its sound. Having all those things built-in and being a transistor amplifier makes that the sound is not as warm and organic as it should be.

It also is an amplifier for beginners, so it doesn’t sound as a professional one.

Reliability:

After all the use it has got, it keeps sounding like the first day, with no problem at all, it has a good response every time it has been needed, making everything sound at the top level it can reach.

Overall Rating:

This is a great amplifier for beginners; a really good one for exploring all the options that it gives with all the effects, also the built-in chromatic tuner makes it even more worth.

But in the end one should take to account that it’s really far from a good professional sound.
