I bought a Mustang III around the middle of last year. I had my eye on a DRRI, and a CVRI, I looked at the Bassbreaker, the AC15, and a bunch of others. I just could not find "that sound" more than once in a row, and when I added up an amp and the few pedals I knew I wanted, well, the bill just kept climbing. That, and I normally cannot play loudly at home. I just love that Mustang. It sounds good, and can still sound good at low volume. But I'm finding that is not what I like the most. When I first got my Mustang, I could not get enough of the 65 Deluxe Reverb patch. (Yes, I modified it to sound good - as I have with all the patches I've worked with). After a week, it just didn't sound right / it just didn't "do it for me" anymore. Then I could not get enough of the SuperSonic 22 patch. After a week, it just didn't sound right. Then I was all over the Bassman. Then I was all over the 65 Princeton. Then I was all over the Marshall. Then I loved the Bassman with Big Fuzz. Deluxe Reverb with Big Fuzz. Deluxe Reverb with compression. A few weeks ago, it was blackbox and orangebox with a few models. This last week, it's been 65 DR, Bassman, and Marshall with overdrive. Thing is, each time I think "This is my sound!", a few days later it isn't, and I find another that does it for me. There are so many great sounds to be had in this amp, there is always something that scratches that itch, no matter where that itch may land for me that day. So, how much would I have had to spend on two or three amps and a handful of pedals? At least six times what I spend on the M-III. I can also find a "tone" to come close to a song I may be working on - getting something in the ballpark makes it easier for me to learn things. Sure - all this amp hopping / sound hopping is me - but this thing just works for me. Funny thing is, I only play my Tele. The Strat pretty much stays in it's case. It's just the amp settings that seem to need to switch to my wandering ear.
