The new 1x8” Mustang I (above) and 1x12” Mustang II (below).

The new Fender Mustang I and II guitar amps raise the standard for modern guitar versatility and muscle. Driven by incredibly authentic amp models and a huge bank of built-in effects, Mustang I and II come equipped with USB connectivity and Fender FUSE™ software, both of which let your musical creativity and imagination run wild.

Mustang I is a 20-watt closed-back combo with an 8” Special Design speaker; Mustang II is a 40-watt closed-back combo with a 12” Special Design speaker. Both sound great and pump serious volume, and both contain 24 highly accurate on-board amp presets with tones from vintage Fender sparkle to outrageous modern metal distortion, all easily and instantly accessed right out of the box with only a twist of a single knob.

Mustang I and II also contain a bank of 24 built-in effects, including chorus, flanging, phasing, tremolo, vibratone, step filter, reverb, echo, octaver and more—12 modulation effects and 12 delay and reverb effects in all. Effects selection and adjustment is quickly and easily accomplished using two simple knobs on the control panel. Both amps are great for practice and jam sessions, and the 1/8” headphone jack doubles as a speaker-emulated line out.

The Fender FUSE™ software included with Mustang I and II opens up a world of possibilities, including on-screen parameter control, deep editing, additional effects, unlimited preset storage, online preset swapping with the Fender FUSE™ community, and free Fender artist presets. An optional single-button footswitch controls two quick-access presets.

Mustang I and II run from a very simple control interface, which includes gain, volume, treble, bass, master, preset select, modulation select, delay/reverb select, save button, exit button and tap tempo button.

Other features of both models include an auxiliary input for media player, chromatic tuner, Ableton® Live Lite 8 Fender Edition studio-quality recording software (compatible with the Mustang USB recording output) and AmpliTube® Fender LE software. All Mustang features are packed into a striking visual design with sleek and modern Fender styling, delivering looks that are as desirable as the sound.
