The Mustang Micro offers 12 amps and effects each, an adjustable input jack, 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C connector for direct recording and a rugged matte black enclosure.

In Guitar.com’s 9/10 review of the Fender Mustang Micro, we said: “As a no-fuss home practice tool, beginner amp, travel rig, or even an emergency pedalboard amp, there’s no reason why all of us shouldn’t have one of these stowed away in our gigbags.”
