I was just gifted this amp for my 30th birthday and it is absolutely stunning. The presets are a whole bunch of fun to play around with, and the sound is crisp. I'd have no shame bringing this for a gig, or using it as a practice amp, just a great all around piece of gear!
I got a $200 gift card for Guitar Centers and this is what I bought. I've been using an HEAVY Peavy tube amp since the 90's, and it's not reliable anymore. I wanted to be able to get the same sound, more or less, and expand my horizons with a digital amp.
The amp itself seems to be well built, the controls are logical but definitely take some getting used to. The real magic is in the Fender FUSE software. I've spent just 8-10 hours with it, and can just get lost in all of the different options - in a good way. I can choose and emulate a range of amplifier heads, cabinets, up to 4 pedals and up to 3 rack components. I can save each setup as a preset on the amp. It's in a really easy to use graphical format that shows each device.
I use a PC tablet that allows me to open a preset, see all the gear, and tap my pedals with my finger or change other settings that way. It's not at all the same as having the actual gear, but in a way it's easier and just as satisfying so far.
So far, I'm extremely pleased with this amp.
I wouldn't really call this line of amps traditional guitar amps as much as i would them amp simulating computer programs (Fender Fuse) with a speaker on them. As many different tones and styles that you can get out of this amp, it still doesn't compare to the practicality of using physical effects and pedals to get a certain sound rather then just using downloadable presets. At the end of the day though, being a new player myself, this amp is perfect for practicing all of my favorite songs in their original tones that I otherwise wouldn't be able to get without spending a bunch of money on different pedals and effects. It gets the job done.
This amp has a variety of different pre-sets which I have spent hours making them into my own unique tones and sounds. This is a great amp for anyone who wants to have a variety of amps in one place.
It´s better than me at the moment. It caters for all my needs. Took me a while to get a good grasp at it, but now I can set it up to my favorite voices. Strong, clear and with loads of onboard effects.
