    I have a II, and use it for late night jamming (just like you mentioned above). I plug the output of my computer sound into the aux, plug the headphones into the amp, and jam away to backing tracks, record direct w/the usb, whatever - it's awesome for that.



    I did play it w/a band rehearsal in my basement, but chickened out taking it to an actual gig - just didn't think it would be loud enough.



    The III, at 100w, should cut it at a small sized club.




    Sweet thanks!

    I was wondering if it would cut it or not. For what I am using it for right now I think the II would work. However if I were to add a few more members to the group, especially a drummer. I would be kicking myself for not getting something a little bigger.

    They have a used Mustang IV downtown here for a good price. I might take a look at that. Overall size and weight might scare me back to only one speaker but we will see.

      I got a Mustang I a couple of years ago, didn't dig it, and left it in the corner for about a year. Then I got the bright idea to hook it up to my laptop and start messing with the advanced settings, and it came alive. The stock presets all suck but if you get into editing them (especially the Sag and Bias, which are critical), the payoff is huge.
      Arrangements? How about I hit on two and four, and you shut the **************** up?

          Fwiw, size wise, the III is not much bigger than the II, and just a bit heavier. The IV is quite a jump on both accounts.

          Yeah, you absolutely have hit the presets and change them. The stock tones are usable, but not great.

              Still love my MIII - the Fender presets in the 90s preset range are killer.



              I will also agree that when you start tweaking, be SURE to adjust the sag and bias - they make all the difference in the world.
              This used to be a great place. Thanks, GCI, for killing it.See y'all at Wein's.

                  I have a Roland Micro Cube and it sounds great to me for practice and recording with headphones or line-out, although the speaker really blows. I like the simplicity of the RMC, but I haven't tried a Mustang or other modeling amps (other than a Peavey and a Line 6 UX1 interface). It seems like most complaints about the RMC are based on the speaker. How does the Mustang series compare to the Micro Cube in terms of tone?

                      The Yamaha THR10 is the amp that changed my mind about modeling.



                      Outstanding!!!

                          I just got a Mustang 2, and the clean sounds on it are amazing. I'm still playing with it.

                              I've never been that impressed with my Mustang I. I like the THR5 much better.
