When I'm not playing guitar I'm a writer, and love to write articles like this on my spare time. Sure I make a few cents here and they're doing it, that is not my primary motivation. I love to write because I love to write and hopefully that should say it all and I do love Fender guitars because they grew up with the rock 'n roll industry and have always been a rock 'n roll fan ever since I was small child. So when I tell you this is a great sounding amplifier and also a personal one, I'm speaking from experience. I'm going to legitimately argue that the supersonic settings as well as the basement settings justify the entire price of this guitar amplifier all by itself.
Also the modeling technology that Fender is implementing on the Fender Mustang IV Guitar Amplifier is beyond belief. And just to steer off track a bit, you not have any problem being short on volume with this musical instrument. This product comes with 12 inch Celestion speakers and also has 150 W of output power. In fact the output power on this amplifier is so strong, that unless there is a lot of space between your home and the home next year you're probably not ever want to turn it past 4 to 5 why you're playing live music. All you have to do to hear some sampled beats for this is take a quick visit to YouTube and type in the search term Fender Mustang 4. The NAMM show has a couple videos on YouTube that demonstrates exactly how this guitar amplifier works. You can also watch the video of the guitarist that's using a green carbon guitar and a Mustang four amp, inside of his basement.
You can see him showing off the Fender Mustang IV Guitar Amplifier and he gives you a great idea of all the various tones you'll be able to get with this. You can also see exactly what this amp is capable of even on a bad day. Okay Alice met the guy on the and NAMM video does happen to be a Fender representative but seriously, does it really matter? His only job is to show everyone exactly what this amplifier can do. And at the end of the day all that matters is can you bang out awesome tones and did your money stretch out as far as possible. The other thing you really need to ask yourself, is do you really love using it? If you do and this is your hobby or even if it's a full-time gig of yours, and you're happy with it, that's all that matters. At the end of the day you have to be happy and satisfied with the product and pretty much everyone who buys the Mustang 4 seems to be.
Another Fender customer who's been playing guitar for about three decades said that he needed an amplifier that can be used as amplification for other musical instruments related to the guitar since he enjoys doing experimental music like ukuleles and other instruments. The key to making this happen is to add inputs and outputs that are well-thought-out and that also use standardized acts, so you have lots of options as far as this is concerned. If the Fender Mustang IV Guitar Amplifier was to have its competition evaluated, this customer believes that the line 6 IV Spider is as close as you get to being a direct competitor. However the line 6 is completely dedicated to basically just hard rock and heavy metal music which comes with a lot of gadgets that don't have any real value like the limited looper for example.
If heavy metal is all you're interested in then maybe the line 6 might be better for you. But if experimentation is your game like it is for a lot of people in the music industry that are constantly testing and tweaking different instruments and genres the Mustang will kill the line 6 any day of the week. As I mentioned before the modeling is superb and the tones are incredible area. When you get this amp, you'll notice that it comes with multitrack software as well is a four button foot switch.
Whoever designed the electronic's on the Fender Mustang IV Guitar Amplifier should be given a shrine as the electronics were very thoroughly put together and the learning curve is almost nonexistent. If you still have any old effects petals after purchasing this amplifier you can get prepared to start selling them off because you won't really need them after you buy this, since you're pretty much covered for any style of music once you get this particular Fender amplifier model. And the vintage look in the grill as well is the look in the knobs make this a real attractive musical instrument. If I was to make just one suggestion for improvements, I would suggest adding a second input and clean channel but I also want to mention that you really don't need it but I think it would make the amplifier function a little bit better.
