A Modern Legend is improved with Fender Innovation

State-of-the-art digital and wireless technology combine to create Fender's best-sounding digital amplifier - all from the company that invented inspirational sound.

Mustang GT is about connections; connections to your phone, to Fender artists, to a community of other players, and most importantly, your connection to a new world of endless creative possibilities.

The World's First Guitar Amp with WiFi!

The Fender Mustang GT boasts the world's first Bluetooth and WiFi-equipped guitar amplifier, making it easy for you to download the latest updates, access Fender artist-created presets, and connect directly with a community of other creative players and music makers like yourself.

Upgraded Modeling

Seven decades worth of experience crafting inspirational tools have been employed to add new (and better) amp and effects models while making it easier to use all of this without sacrificing one iota of power. It is now easy to control a studio's worth of authentic amp and effects models with one finger via Bluetooth and the exclusive Fender Tone app.

Packed with 21 classic amp models - everything from the renowned '59 Bassman to modern metal and 47 different pedal emulations, the Mustang GT-100 can easily recreate classic tones or create brand-new, never-before-heard sounds. Fender's new algorithms yield even higher fidelity and more realistic response, along with more signal path flexibility so you can move effects anywhere in the signal chain for creative exploration. Program your sounds in the studio on the Mustang GT-100's large, full-colour LCD display and then, with one hand, take them to the stage and deliver the most realistic listening experience possible for any audience, short of inviting them into the control room. You can even stream audio from your mobile device via Bluetooth wireless.

All About the Sound

Fender's updated amp models let your instrument's voice and the dynamic nuances of your playing come through, reacting just like the originals to your every move. Lighten your attack to clean up your sound or dig in to make it grunt or howl - the Mustang GT-100 and its 12" Celestion Special Design speaker enhances every part of the performance. The GT-100 also features a special plywood cabinet designed for tone as well as its surprisingly light weight.

Fender Tone

Adding convenient control to the Mustang GT-100's power is the easy-to-use Fender Tone app. Not only can you control the amp in real time with one finger, just like the originals, you can easily upgrade the amps capabilities, adding more power and presets without patching a single cable or plugging in a soldering iron. And, you can connect easily to the Fender Digital ecosystem for learning and sharing.

An Amp for All Uses

Designed to be used in the studio or in the stage and benefiting from high quality effects and modelling accurately reproducing a wide range of amps, the Mustang GT-100 digital amplifier is the go-to guitar combo amp for any application.

The Mustang GT-100 is easy for beginning players but has enough options and power to serve even the most veteran of guitarists.

Before buying this amp I owned a GDEC 3/30 for six years and ran the line out to a tube amp to fatten the sound. Before that, I owned numerous tube amps and boutique pedals. I skipped Gen 1 and 2 of the Mustangs but the new GT series really grabbed my interest. First off, wifi and bluetooth is so much easier than USB cables and PCs downloading firmware files and sound patches. The Fender Tone app is outstanding (using iPhone) and the community creating/posting new patches is very active. I took home the GT40 did an A/B comparison of the GT40 against by GDEC 3/30. I found the GT40, with its small stereo speakers, sounded like the mids were scooped when playing guitar. Streaming music to the GT40 sounded awesome. I preferred the tone of the GDDEC 3/30 over the GT40 for guitar while the GT40 was better at audio tracks. Next, I played through headphones and the tone of the GT40 had much more chime and sparkle than the GDEC (I don't do hi-gain so all my opinions are based on the 65 Twin and Delux Reverb patches). I decided the 'engine' of the GT series was decent and the small, brand new speakers, yet to be broken in with scooped mids, were holding the amp back. With that in mind, I returned to L&M and did a direct A/B with the GT40 and GT100. The GT100 won out for that open guitar-amp tone whereas the GT40 sounded spot-on when streaming music yet scooped with a guitar plugged in. I decided to buy a $539 guitar amp (GT100) instead of a $329 bluetooth speaker (GT40). Besides the 12" speaker in the GT100, you get a full set of tone stack controls whereas the GT40 is limited in the number of dials...not a big deal but I again reminded myself I was buying a guitar amp. Now don't get me wrong, the GT40 is still a nice amp and I really considered buying it and changing where I play guitar - the GT40 could literally sit on a sidebar or coffee table and look right at home with all my home entertainment equipment. At some point, my ears stopped hearing the scooped mids and it wasn't until I shifted between amps that I would hear it again, and let's face it, no one is going to gig a GT40, it's a home practice amp that won't cut through the mix of other guitarists let alone a drummer. As a home practice amp, in my living room, the GT40 would be spectacular because it has all the digital features of the GT100 but I was buying a guitar amp to live in my basement beside a drum kit and occasionally leave the house for a jam session. There's a lot of negative info, especially on YouTuve about the GT series. In the age of the iPhone, I think YouTubers have lost their heads about what digital technology can do over analog when it comes to music. The GT series is not for vintage tube-amp collectors. The GT series is for people who want to grab and go, people who stream music knowing it's compressed compared to vinyl and don't care because of the convenience and accessibility. I suggest anyone interested in the GT series try the amps for themselves and let their ears decide. Build quality isn't great. The tolex covering has creases and the speaker cloth isn't road worthy. The amp looks great - like an old school British hifi speaker but this is a guitar amp and we musicians can be clumsy. Did it stop me from buying the amp? Nope. But I'd rather the exterior be more robust. One last thing. Fender has released a number of firmware upgrades for the GT series. As soon as you buy the amp, connect to wifi, and download a firmware update; don't play guitar, do the update first. The June 27 update was significant and seriously improved/expanded the features of the amp. I think fender's flexibility in responding to user requests is reason enough to try the new GT series.
