FENDER - New Mustang GT Amps with Bluetooth
« on: December 30, 2016, 01:26:14 AM »

NAMM 2017: Fender made its first stride into the world of apps with Tune earlier this year, and stated it would be the first of many - now, it appears the apps will interact with a new Bluetooth-compatible amp in the new year.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Fender chief exec Andy Mooney let slip that the company's new amp will connect to apps wirelessly via Bluetooth, allowing players to alter and share tones.

Fender is also planning a tone app that enables an amp to emulate the sounds of famous guitarists
Along with the amp, which will be available next year (NAMM, anyone?), Fender is also planning a practice-room app that can teach guitarists to play any song in their music library, as well as a tone app that enables an amp to emulate the sounds of famous guitarists.

The Big F's amp plans will put it in line with the likes of Line 6, Marshall and Hughes & Kettner, but those apps could be the real game-changer here, particularly if the amp integration is smoothly implemented.

Something else we learned in the interview is that Fender's best-selling guitar finish in spring was Metallic Blue, and the company is looking to collaborate with artists to create new styles - that's a far cry from its three most popular finishes, which were revealed in July.

I'd like to transplant that display and virtual knob into my Katana  :P
In some areas Fender is ahead of Boss...
Question is...how great is the sound vs Katana.

Its not in same league as Katana IMHO - I'm told new Mustang GT is basically same Mustang V2 Amp tone flavor ballpark

they do hype this  ( but it remains to be heard)


- but new Bluetooth wireless control options and new web integration:
Tone.Fender.com ( Fender version of Line-6 CustomTone.com)

Play.Fender.com ( Fender free Guitar Lessons)

(see links for both on the packing  box)



But personally - the design of Mustang  GT ( No Corner Protection, sprayed on leatherette finish on MDX particle board)   is more like a Fender's answer to the  Line-6 AMPLIFI (i.e. it designed to stay at home, and not transport to live gigs dont) 

Many prefer the "boutique" look of an amp without corner protection -( thats what Line-6 told me when I complained about my Firehawk 1500 - that cant survive the UPS trip from Sweetwater to my house in the factory shipping box without getting its corners beat up 


 but I actually use my amps to play live, and they must survive the abuse that pursuit exposes.   




My old 1974 Ampeg VT40 was my the amp I could drop off a roof and still play the 4 hour gig  - thanks to metal protection on all 8 corners, and 32 ply birch plywood cabinet with tonge and groove finger  joint corners)



If an Ampeg VT-40 hits a wall, its the Wall that looses and ends up with a hole, not the amp

...and that is not good enough. I have both. Mustang V2  ok for living room practice. Katana ok for real stage work. I once put my Mustang beside a real (expensive) Fender tube amp and compared. No dynamics, no punch, no nothing, wasn't even close. Katana on the contrary, stood up well against my Marshall 100W tube amp.
