Hey e'budy. I'd been looking for a small amp for a while and came across a practically new in box unplayed mustang 1v2 on C.L. for $50.
I was able to sell another amp for the same price so I bought it.
This little amp on the 57 deluxe setting sounds very close to my old modded Blues Jr. with a little better bottom end.
I own a M3v2 which is my main amp but when I have to haul my bass gear as well as my guitar gear to the same venue at 71 it gets wearisome.
I haven't gigged with it yet but I'll see how it cuts in 2 weeks.

stiggowitz,

Congrats on your new Mustang 1v2. I know that you'll enjoy the sounds that it can produce and Fuse has more sounds that you may like.

Curious to know what're your favourite amp sim to use for Surf guitar (Dick Dale, Los Straitjackets, Ventures etc)

And they sell well for 2 reasons.
Price
And most importantly..they sound great.

Has anyone had the volume pot go bad ? My Mustang III volume is not working in the headphone/recording output. If the 3.5mm jack is removed the audio does come thru the speaker. Is this a pot or some other controller device. If it's a pot I can change it out. Haven't been able to find schematics for this amp yet.

Need to be more clear. Does the amp not put out any output out of the 3.5 jack?

But does the pot work with the speaker's volume?

Hadn't played the Mustang with my newish (five weeks or so) LP Studio HP I picked up a bit ago.

That was something I should have done sooner - the Marshall stuff in particular is a lot more right than it was with my other bucker-equipped guitars. Don't know what it is, but I like it.

Not a sound I want every day...but...nice to know it's there!

So impressed was my other guitarist bandmate with my Mustang3v2 that he ordered one for himself and his amp arrived, the second one to land in Nepal, so now we are a true Mustang amp band! :-)

I've sold MIII's too just by other musicians hearing mine. That is the most important thing about these amps. It's not all the bells and whistles but tone that sell them.

They have all the useful and not over complicated features. And they are more than versatile enough for any gig.

I'm not particularly impressed by the effects in the amp - the fake reverb tank is decent.

Past that, I'll stick to my pedal board.

Amp sounds stupid good as an *amp* which is why I have it.

Besides tone the beauty of this amp is in the portability. I can now go to a gig with just the guitars and this box with the footswitches thrown in the back, thats it! No extra load.

I'm taking mine to Clamfest this weekend. 3 or 4 patches, no pedals...easy peasy.

"I haven't gigged with it yet but I'll see how it cuts in 2 weeks."

I was finally able to put my M1v2 thru it's paces last night and it did a superb job. The tone of this little amp far exceeds expectations.

Great to hear it worked out stiggowitz.

Came up with a really great blackface Fender patch:

Amp is the 59 Bassman model -
Gain 5.3, Volume 10.0, Treb 6.2, Mid 8.4, Bass 8.9, Rev 1.4. (Reverb model is Fender 63 spring: level 1.4, Decay 8.6, Dwell 6.0, Diff 5.5, Tone 8.3.)

Back to the amp; mash the Amp button again and you go in to the fine-tuning section. This is the secret. Sag set on match, Bias set at 30%, Gate set on high, Cab set on 65 Twin, Presence 6.2, Blend 60%.

Now you have a warm Fender sound at as low as you need via the master volume. Takes pedals pretty well, may need to dial the dirt back on your OD pedal, or try a few different ones. The onboard tremolos and delays are nice if you got the extra Fender controller pedal to access them with your foot. I can gig with this amp and no pedalboard if I need to.

Dolemite, thanks for sharing this patch, Im gonna try it out later today.

My favorite amp sim so far on the Mustang3v2 is the 59 Bassman. Ive been gigging out a bit this month with the Mustang and have got nothing but compliments on its tone. Aside for tweaking into sag and bias I feel that messing with the regular compressor and simple comp also adds favorably to the overall tone. I've got a great Setzerish setup up for my Gretsch and another nice patch for my Gibsons both using the 59 Bassman model.

Had a problem on a gig with my M4 V2. it started to change presets without me touching the footswitch during a song. never happened before. I turned off the amp,then turned it on,and the problem stopped. Any idea what would cause this?

Maybe static electricity or something? Never experienced it with my M3 V2 but wouldn't want to.
