Fender Mustang GTX 100

At publication time this was on our recommended list for The Best Modeling Amps.

The Mustang GTX 100 is an upgrade compared to the previous Mustang 100 iteration, this one packed with modern features and guitar processing.

With 40 amp models, 200 presets, and multiple built-in effects, this amp offers a lot of tone flexibility.

But what really sets it apart is its built-in wi-fi connectivity, which allows for convenient wireless control via software editor.

Other features include a built-in looper function, USB connectivity and Bluetooth compatibility.

This 100W solid state amp drives a 12" Celestion speaker and it comes bundled with a multi-switch foot controller.

Specifications:

  • Power: 100W
  • Speaker: 1 x 12" Celestion G12P-80
  • Amp Modeling: 40 Amp Models
  • Effects: Variations of Overdrive, Fuzz, Delay, Modulation, Pitch Shift
  • Input: 1 x 1/4" (Instrument), 1 x 1/8" (Aux in)
  • Outputs: 2 x XLR (Line Out)
  • Weight: 22 lbs.

Pros:
As expected, versatility is the GTX 100's strong suit. But it's not just about having plenty of options because the sound quality of many of the amp models get commended often, especially the ones that are based on classic Fender clean tones. Tone options translate to value for money, and this is much appreciated in reviews, many are especially happy with the inclusion of a multi-switch pedal controller, that turns the Mustang GTX 100 into a true all-in-one rig. For a 100-Watt amp, many are surprised by how light it is relative to other similarly rated amps.

Cons:
There are a few who are having issues with the editing app, while there are some who wish for extra features like power attenuation.

Overall:
You don't have to be a Fender fan to appreciate the tones and value you can get from the Mustang GTX 100.
