    if I promoted an item I liked from a company and help sell hundreds of them, and didn't get compensated in some way....

    ...next generation of the item would feel a little bitter for me!

    That's what Shane did with the original GT, which was surprising because he built his reputation/channel on the back of the Mustang's presets being terrible and his uploaded settings becoming very popular. It's also easy to reject the "new thing" if you've got old things that you know intimately and have tweaked to work their best.

    That's not accurate. He gives a fairly lengthy description about how he created a custom patch and didn't like the way it felt or sounded. He said he preferred the sound of the Peavey Bandit over the custom patch he created on the Mustang GT.

    The GT V2 still sounds bad. Shane warmed up to free gear, but still prefers the Mustang III.

    Finally after a couple years and several updates the GT is almost as good as the Mustang IIIv2.

    No, it still sounds much worse than the MIII V2.

    Shane has a new mod to improve the tone of the Mustang GT100.

    Shane has become an arrogant ****. Once these youtubers get some notoriety, it starts going to their heads. Success seems to ruin a lot of musicians.

    He's wasting his and others time.

    Wow, I’m trying to think of something positive to say about that video.










    I got nothing.

    Shane has another sweet upgrade for his new GT100 that replaced the other GT100 that failed. Go to 5:50 to hear how much better it made the GT100 sound.

    Yeah it was kind of nice when he did a few videos about the Mustang that were "let's see if we can get it to sound like a DRRI" next to an actual DRRI etc. but seriously all these Mustang demo vids sound the same to me.

    I still like that he goes into a lot of detail and really seems interested in the gear, but since I've never been interested in the Mustang amps anyway watching several demos of several iterations with speaker swaps and all likewise doesn't interest me. Golf and Basketball doesn't interest me either, so I just don't watch.

    Now when I see a Peavey Bandit demo OTOH, I have to watch.
