    love the amp

    i got the mustang III V.1 with both footswitches i like to set the 2-button switch to QA1(distortion) and QA2(clean) while i use the 4-button footswitch to toggle on and off my effects

    even tho i dont hear this fizz on my amp i can't wait to get the V.2 for the added effects and amps

    another good thing about the mustang amps i really like is being able to download other fender fuse users presets off the fender site

    heres mine : https://fuse.fender.com/mustang/presets?author=corpseknot

    its mostly metal stuff but alot of it would be good for a higher gain lead sounds to

    Very much a newbie question: I have a Mustang III amp that I use with my Tele. My wife is in a band, and they're asking her to learn the bass guitar. She has a bass to practice with, but doesn't have a bass amp. Could she use my amp, just for at home practicing, without doing any damage to either her bass or my amp?

    Does not work so well

    I had to do this for a practice secession with a friend. It worked marginally in that setup, would not work in a band setup at all.

    For practicing bass at home?

    Go to ebay, buy a Line6 GuitarPort. The original can be had for 40 bucks or so. Download the upgrades to GearBox software. Practice with the computer. The bass amp models on GearBox are quite fun.

    I personally wouldn't do the Bass through a Mustang thing.

    Ok, much like I am with computers, I'm a sucker for the latest and greatest.. I took my 7 month old Mustang 3, a Crate club 20 and an old mixer I had down to guitar center, and ended up giving them $24 (I also bought 5 sets of strings) and now have a mustang 3 V2.
    Could have made more if I wanted to hassle with Ebay or CL, But sending amps is always a crapshoot, so I'm happy.

    I didn't even have the "fizz" but I loaded up my junk, went down there and told myself, If I like it that much better, I'll leave with it.. And so I did.

    It's definitely an improvement, the one default patch I used alot on the V1 was "Country deluxe" and the V2 version just sounds better, like a lot better.. Not sure why yet... Only had it for 6-7 hours, more to come I'm sure.
    Totally happy with my decision.. Oh, the pitch shifting patches sound 100% better (IMO)

    I see if I can do something soon, Wish I would have done some stuff with the V1, so I could A/B them.

    If they have fixed the fizz issue in V2 I might consider buying another one.

    I called Fender and asked em if the Fizz issue was fixed with V2. I was told 'Yes, it was fixed with an upgraded output transformer.' Based on that, I traded in my MIII V1 for an MIII V2. The Fizz is gone and I love it! :)

    I'm thinking of selling off my pedals and getting a M3.

    Can you get a nice country, picking tone with a bit of slapback out of one of these ?

    I was put right off these at first because so many of the factory presets sucked. Once you pare back or turn off the mods and fx, you're left with some nice clean models you can then 'spec' how you like, that can probably do anything in the rights hands.

    I know, right? The Floor is awesome. I'm making some great presets for my band tones. The only thing I'm having to work with is getting a handle on making each preset come out of the floor at its usable volume for my band.

    Yes!

    I may still be in the honeymoon phase with my M3 V2, but I haven't touched my SFDR and pedals at all in the past month. I'm very happy with my M3, but having said that I'm not quite ready to sell off all my tube amps and pedals. :D

    I think you have convinced me to get one. It's either gonna be an MIIIV2 or a TC Nova Station which I will run through my Peavey Bandit.

    Choices choices...

    I got the mustang 3 v1 a few months ago. I heard a little of the fizz but I was able to do some tweeking and now can't really hear it when playing with a band. I've done around 25 gigs with it so far and as I get more used to it the more I like it. For giging you must have the 4 button switch. Also it took about 3 weeks of pushing it pretty hard to loosen up the speaker. So I'm happy with it witch surprises me caus I used a fender twin for 45yrs. so that was what I was comparing the m3 to. Great amp but it does take time to dial it in.

    I only notice the fizz sporadically when using high-gain amp presets, not so much when using Fender amp presets. I got a Mustang Floor this last week and that is a lot of fun to play around with.
