Sound — 9
I play contemporary Christian music through a Squier Tele. I typically use the 65 TR, Brit 60's, and 59 Bassman settings with a few effects. I really like the clean 65 TR sound for the older songs. It is noisy on the metal settings but I don't use them anyway, quiet on all the others.
Overall Impression — 8
Overall it is a great little amp for what you get and I would recommend it for a practice amp to anyone. I compared it to the Roland cube and almost went with it but decided to try the Fender instead. As I said I wish it had 1/4" jacks, other than that, no complaints.
Reliability & Durability — 7
I won't be using the Mustang 1 for church much longer due to the issue I mentioned above. I am thinking about the Floor or the Mustang IV. I want a 1/4" jack to output for sure. I am not sure if those two models use the same out jacks, if so I will have to look at something else.
Features — 8
The amp is quite versatile for what I play in our church Praise & Worship team. It has more features than I am likely to use, but for the price it was quite a deal. I run the headphone out to a DI box for the house sound and it does a fine job. My only issue is the quality of the 1/8" jack. The jack is loose now although it still works. A few light tugs was all it took. I originally bought it for practice at home which is where it will stay when I upgrade.
