Fender Releases Mustang Micro Personal Amp
Fender launches the ultimate jam buddy: a tiny amp loaded with Mustang’s amps and effects.
Fender has launched the latest amp in its Mustang series, the Mustang Micro. The tiny unit has a rotatable TRS jack which plugs straight into your electric guitar, with a wide selection of tones and effects from the acclaimed Mustang Series amps onboard for you to jam with silently via headphones.
A rechargeable lithium ion battery gives you over four hours of continuous play time. Players can easily choose from a selection of amps depending on your musical preference — from classic cleans to metal — and a bevy of effects. With 12 amp models and 12 effects combinations straight from Fender’s Mustang Series of amps, pulling a solid Fender tones is easy no matter where you are. Simple controls let you fly through the different amp and effect selections. The USB-C functions as a charging port as well as a connection point to feed Mustang Micro’s recording output straight into a Mac or PC. What’s more, Bluetooth connectivity lets you stream audio from a device to jam along with your favourite tunes.
The Mustang Micro is ideal for beginners and seasoned players alike. Its simple and intuitive controls, as well as rechargeable batteries, are made for the player on the go, while its headphone output and Bluetooth play-along capabilities make it perfect for quiet, at-home practice sessions.
“We’re thrilled to bring the iconic Mustang amp tones into a pocket-sized amp,” said Max Gutnik, Vice President of Electric Guitars, Basses & Amplifiers. “The Mustang Micro will allow everyone from touring artists to new players at home to plug in without disturbing anyone around them. Players will be able to express themselves through authentic effects and tones without being tied to an external amp, allowing for Micro’s portability to take them wherever the music goes.”
Expect to pay $219 when the Mustang Micro hits the shelves.
