    It turned out the first one he got had a bad speaker and changed it out. Got a second one and said the stock speaker is good in it.

    Cool. That's what I was hoping, because it would suck if Fender put a terrible speaker in that amp.

    I just got an email about these and had to come here immediately to see what's up...

    they are billing it as "the world's most advanced digital amplifier series" *cough* bullsh*t *cough* but maybe they mean "* for the price" or "*that we've ever created"

    granted all I've heard so far is youtube... but it sounds good. I'm still trying to decide if I should pick up a Marshall Code, Katana or something else... maybe this?

    I would love something of that ilk, that also takes pedals the same way a clean tube amp would

    Since they used the term Amplifier Series, they might actually be able to make that claim. Axe, or Kemper, Helix, is more advanced, but they aren't a series of amplifiers.

    Then again, lol, advanced doesn't necessarily equal best.

    Shane's first big review was 'mixed' at best. Some of the mid-high gain tones seemed good and some sounded awful. I think the bloom is off this rose. I'm looking forward to more reviews and patches from him. If there's anything good inside this box he'll find it.

    Seems like the good ol' Mustang III v2 still wins out. 3rd party software gives you bluetooth also, so...

    For Fender clean tones it's hard to beat a broken in MIII.
