Fender’s amp and app combo makes your smartphone a shred sweetener

Tweak your tone from your phone
08 May 2017

What’s the rockstar lifestyle without roadies? You know, those touring bods who twiddle the knobs while you get to wear leather pants and wrap a cold flannel about your neck. Thing is, roadies only come with success. For pre-fame rockers there’s Fender’s Tone app. Paired with one of the new Mustang GT series amps (the company’s first to carry Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, from £195), the app lets you load up sound presets from thousands of artists, technicians and, well, just about anyone with a guitar. You can make your own, too - and there’s even the option for a full set-list of settings, if you can’t afford a mid-gig guitar switch.
