So I know I'm late to the party, but just got the mustang and am super impressed and blown away by how good it sounds. I've had a lot of modeling gear in the past and I feel like this is really gonna meet my needs.

Love mine. Wish I'd gotten it prior to the Pod HD I eventually sold and the iPB-10 I'm planning on selling. For basic Fender tones with minimal effects, it really is excellent.

I'm interested in these things but I can't shake the feeling that if one really isn't into classic fender amps that this isn't the amp for you. Am I wrong?

It definitely does the Fender thing the best, but the Marshalls are good, the Voxes are decent. As you may have read, the SuperSonic model is really cool for creamy high gain sounds too. I think it's flexible enough to cover most things at least acceptably well.

I suppose I could be in honeymoon but I think the marshalls sound really great. The vox is good but doesn't quite have the chime. I agree about supersonic. Really useful lead tone, especially for tones ala robben ford. The biggest thing for me is it feels like an amp and it doesn't sound digital. Just very impressed.

I like the Brit 80's with the 4x12G cab a lot, its my main crunch tone. Just started to play around with the Super Sonic also very nice!

Got my M3 last week. Has the 2 and 4 button foot switches. (I think is a must have!) Sold my Zoom g5 this week. I am totally shocked this amp sounds this good. Simple as anything I have ever bought. Happy customer here.

I agree you definitely need the 4 button ft sw especially if your gigging, I have both foot switches as well it adds to the versatility of the amp!

I've been using the Mustang I for the past year or so as my 'at home headphone' amp and like it.

I normally use the green Supersonic channel. Question is, do the Supersonic amps REALLY sound like that?

I played a SS22 combo at GC a while back and dont recall it sounding that good.

Is the Supersonic preset modeled after the 60 or 100 watt versions?

^ I wondered that too about WHICH Super Sonic...on the FUSE thing, the amp lettering suggests its a newer version that started with the 22s (I had one of those)...the panel layout is the same but it's more gainy than the 22...I think its the 60-

Question...I'm about to pull the trigger on one of these, but often have to stick my amp in an iso cab well offstage when playing at church...can I just run two long (30 foot) instrument cables for the two footswitches?

^ I believe you could- they are nothing special...1/4" plugs...

yeah you can use Instrument cable with no problem, the supplied cable is nothing special just 2 conductor cable.

Thanks guys...I've tried a lot of amps lately trying to find something that I don't have to crank to sound great at home and can still gig occasionally with it. This thing seems to fit the bill.
