Recently had an opportunity to try out some of the Fender Mustang GT amps here - and the reason it's so "late" is because as soon as the shop gets stock, the amps get sold! Wondering what all the fuss is about I sat for an hour with a mate and we fiddled around with a GT100 1x12. Basically it was a superficial test. We were playing a littke H&K combo and not liking the 'clean', so I pulled over the mustang GT and thought well..... it's gotta be good for something... Bloody hell. talk about good.... The presets alone make the amp worth a look-in (and I already have the boss katana 100 1x12) and after an hour of testing, we had managed to quickly run through all the presets and get a feel for the sounds. Some of them are extremely accurate models of very familiar guitars, while others are "close" but not deadnuts on the money. Combined with the "lack" of weight (incredibly light when you're used to lugging a twin reverb / JC120 and a 1960AHW) it makes a pretty serious argument for a gigging musician who needs a versatile amp and doesn't have to worry about lugging a pedalboard and setting it up - has some cool features for line out XLR etc and to my mind shouldn't be immediately excluded just because you might be looking for a valve amp. I'm actually wondering why I should be lugging the twin after playing with this for a little while. I'd probably spring for the GT200 if I decide to buy one, simply because it's a 2x12, and that's what I like. Bear in mind This thing pants'd the silverface princeton, the tweed deluxe reissue and a H&K combo that we tested together with this Mustang GT. In fact the Mustang's tweed deluxe setting sounded better than the actual amp on the floor beside it. We were both quite shocked by this and seriously thought there was something NQR with the valve amp, but no - that was just how it was. Even the JTM45 setting in the mustang GT is pretty respectable. I can see how these amps are so popular. Less than half the price of a twin, half the weight and the same sound...... I think I've quite possibly talked myself into one. Anyone else had similar experience, or a bad experience with one? I'd like to know - It's a lot of amp for the money.
