    I have a Fender Mustang V1 for practice, but I hate it's tone on all settings. If only I could tweak the mids, or treble, or bass, I think I'd like it more. I also refuse to go buy another practice amp cause I don't think I can get any better than the Mustang V1 as far as Solid-state amps w/headphone jacks go.

    Whats the best way to tweak tone on something like this?

    I don't get it. It has knobs for treble and bass. Tweak those?

    Maybe you should've got the bigger Mustang 2?

    There are other options. People swear by those Yamaha THR amps.

    Maybe you'll have luck tweaking through the fuse program?

    If not, all the options are right there on the panel and LCD. Start twisting some knobs and see what you like. Also don't feel scared to mix and match the various can models, or take them off all together.

    There are a lot of really nice sounds in that amp.

    I had both the Mustang 1&2 and much preferred the 2. Sound is fuller with bigger speaker.
    Play with the gain and as mentioned above tweak the amp using the Fender fuse software.

    I have a MIIIv2 and I think it's pretty decent amp all around but at $350 new, it's darn near fantastic.

    Yep tweaking mids and amp sag can be enlightening in fuse SW.

    Also which mustang? Friend has old mustang II 1x10 be got in pawn shop for $89. To me it sounds great for a cheap SS amp. If you've got little 8" mustang it is really small and boxy sounding. Maybe a Emi 820h hemp speaker would help it out a lot.

    For me it was putting the guts in a bigger cab along with a 10" Eminence Lil Buddy ... Vastly improved the overall sound and made this amp more usable .
