Hi :)
I'm looking for small budget amp. I play mostly rock, blues and country. I found three interesting amps. Which want will be better?

The Marshall is a straight-ahead amp, the other two have amp modelling on board. Any of them will do the job for home practice.

The Fender Mustang amps are very good indeed.
If you can afford to pay a bit more for the Mustang iii it's worth it as it has a much better speaker than the other models.

Just wanted to add that I recently picked up a Mustang 1 as my first amp. I mainly play via headphones so the speaker was not much of an issue but even so it still sounds very nice given the price point and size of the amp.

For a mere £90.00 it is fantastic and it comes with some really nice software including some very easy to use patch editing stuff which makes it a doddle to get a nice selection of sounds sorted out.

The only downside is the presets that come with it are mostly useless. For some reason they went for loads of flashy effects rather than just good amp sounds so almost everything has some form of cave-like reverb, delay and sometimes more. Five mins in the editor though and it does a very nice impression of a Blues Jr.

That is par for the course with modelling amps, and indeed multi-fx - they want to show off what they can do, to impress people trying them out in shops. Unfortunately it puts off those people who want good 'core' tones.
