What’s the deal with the Fender Mustang Micro’s UK release date?
I had a spare £90 laying around, it was my birthday, so I thought what the hell, I’m going to get myself a Fender Mustang Micro.
The small, compact practice accessory which doubles as a USB audio interface features 12 amp simulations powered by Fender’s Mustang GTX platform.
It also only costs $90 / £90 which is dirt cheap for the type of functionality you’ll get from this thing.
But annoyingly the Fender Mustang Micro release date in the UK is still a few weeks away.
Fender Mustang Micro UK Release Date
The earliest shipment I could find was May 1; this was via Anderton’s. Although other retailers (GAK, for instance) listed the Fender Mustang Micro’s release date around June.
This means if you’re in the UK, you won’t be able to get your hands on a Fender Mustang Micro until at least the start of May. You can now, however, preorder the Mustang Micro.
If you’re in the USA, the Fender Mustang Micro is now widely available. You can grab one direct from Fender – here’s the latest deals page for the product.
Is The Fender Mustang Micro Right For You?
I have a small kid, he sleeps a lot. I also like playing guitar quite a bit, especially at night. This is not a good combination, however, so something like the Fender Mustang Micro makes a lot of sense to me.
I already own the Spark Amp, which is great, but it isn’t exactly portable. The Fender Mustang Micro, however, can fit in my pocket, so I can sit outside on nice nights and play my guitar in the garden.
The Fender Mustang Micro doesn’t have any wires, unless you use wired headphones, and it runs on an internal battery that’ll last in and around four hours, according to Fender.
Once the battery life is shot, you’ll need to recharge the unit via its USB port.
Designed to help players play literally anywhere, the Fender Mustang Micro is essentially a more advanced version of VOX’s similar-sized mini guitar amp.
Only with the Fender Mustang Micro, you get support for bluetooth connectivity, so you can connect wireless headphones to it and jam out, and it comes with 12 of Fender’s excellent Mustang GTX amp simulations and guitar effects.
I preordered my unit, so as soon as I have it I will do a full unboxing and review. May 1 cannot come fast enough!
