SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Sept. 14, 2010) – The new Fender Mustang I and Mustang II amplifiers raise the standard for modern guitar versatility and muscle. Driven by incredibly authentic amp models and a huge bank of built-in effects, each amp comes equipped with USB connectivity and Fender FUSE software, letting players' 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 presets using eight highly accurate amp tones ranging 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 knob.
Mustang I and II also contain a bank of 24 built-in effects, including reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, vibratone, step filter, reverb, echo, octaver and more. 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 amps and 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.
Fender Mustang I and II amps are available at Fender dealers worldwide with a MSRP of $149.99 (Mustang I) and $269.99 (Mustang II). For more information, go to www.fender.com.
