  • Fender Mustang IV amp opinions

    Just picked up a Fender Mustang 1v amp 2 days ago. Tired of lugging around Twins Super Reverbs etc around for 20 years. Amp sounds pretty convincing for a ss state. Any opinions here on this amp?? Thanks KJL

    I had a Mustang III for a few days. It sounded great at low volumes but not too good at stage level so I returned it.

      Was it a fizz issue or problem cutting?

                            I was thinking about these as well but somebody mentioned upgrading the firmware and FUSE software.



                            Has anybody tried that?
