Fender releases new Mustang GT amps and Tone app

Fender Mustang GT 100

Bringing stage-worthy power packed in a lightweight package

New additions are designed to work in tandem to deliver accessible guitar tones catered to any player’s musical creativity.

Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) has introduced the new Mustang GT Amplifier Series and free Fender Tone mobile app.

These new releases are designed to work in tandem to deliver accessible guitar tones catered to any player’s musical creativity.

Fender Digital has dubbed the new iPhone and Android application the “ultimate companion app” to the three new Mustang GT amplifiers: Mustang GT 40, a table-top workstation for learning and recording, and the Mustang GT 100 and Mustang GT 200, which both bring stage-worthy power packed in a lightweight package. They also provide enhanced signal processing for better fidelity and flexibility and a new easy, user-friendly interface.

Premium features include a user-friendly control interface with colour display; Bluetooth wireless streaming of audio tracks utilising the Fender Tone app or other sources such as Spotify or Apple Music; USB output for recording; a “Setlist” feature; and Wi-Fi capabilities. The new models also offer more than 60 Fender amplifier models, multiple effects and a looper, providing endless sound options and room for creativity.

With Fender’s first Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled amplifier, guitarists will have the ability to manage thousands of presets created by Fender sound engineers, notable artists and guitarists, as well as players from the Mustang community. Users can edit effects, share their own presets, create setlists for performances, access easy-to-download upgrades via Wi-Fi and stream music through the Mustang GT amplifiers via Bluetooth.

To demonstrate the versatility of sounds Fender Tone and the new Mustang GT amplifier series provides, Fender tapped into artists across multiple musical genres, such as singer-songwriter Grimes, blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa and rock band Young The Giant to capture the preset tones that give these artists their distinctive sounds for fans to replicate.

Designed for players who enjoy experimenting with various tones and effects, Fender Tone provides real-time control, 'endless' tone creation and an ultra-responsive design that makes even slight modifications quick and easy, Fender says. The new app allows users to manage presets, as well as make changes and play in real-time through the connected Mustang GT amplifiers. Players can also search and browse presets, as well as create and share their own presets through text, email, social channels and online at Players getting started can participate in illustrated walkthroughs that offer tips and information about amplifier models, effects details and signal chain basics.

“We’re proud to introduce our latest innovations to one of the best-selling series in Fender history,” said Jim Ninesling, Fender's senior vice president consumer electronics. “Our first dual launch alongside Fender Digital is an exciting moment, which will not only provide players with endless digital amplifier features, but also give users the option to use the Fender Tone app for preset and setlist organisation.”

The Fender Tone app is available for download now in the App Store and on Google Play Store, while the Mustang GT amplifier series is also available for purchase, and will receive frequent software updates.
