Fender Hot Rod series Ampifiers

Fender completes the first generation of its Mustang amplifier line with the introduction of the high-powered Mustang III, IV and V models. Like the smaller Mustang I and II models released in late summer NAMM 2010, Mustang III, IV and V raise the standard for modern guitar versatility and muscle, with incredibly authentic amp models, a huge bank of built-in effects, easy USB connectivity and Fender FUSE software, all packed into a striking visual design with sleek and modern Fender black “carbon tweed” covering and silver grille cloth.

Mustang III is a 100-watt open-back combo with a 12-inch Celestion speaker great for rehearsing and smaller gigs; Mustang IV is a 150-watt open-back combo with dual 12-inch Celestion speakers great for rehearsing and larger gigs. The Mustang V Head is for the big gigs—a 150-watt amp head that pairs with the rugged Mustang V 412 Cabinet, which is loaded with four 12-inch Celestion speakers and sturdy center baffle bracing.

Radio Frequencies with a Fender Sidekick 25

Fender Sidekick Guitar Amplifier

Why do I hear people talking, like on an AM radio, when I turn up my Fender Sidekick 25 (SKX25R) really loud? The distortion is too loud for me to understand them. Also, I bought it used. How much was it new?

Without actually hearing the voices I would suggest you make the following checks: Make sure you’re using a good quality shielded cable intended for guitar. Screw off the cable ends and look for either the foil or braided “shield” which signifies a cable intended for this use. Check if the shield is soldered well to the plug. Do you have single-coil pickups? If so, that could be the problem right there. Single coils, especially if they’re of poor quality, pick up all sorts of radio crud. It’s possible that the amp itself is susceptible to RFI (radio frequency interference) because of poor shielding or just massive amounts of gain. RFI can sometimes be extreme in certain locales. Do you live near a radio station or Ham operator? Bring the amp to a friend’s house and see if it’s any better. Finally try and listen closely to the radio voices; are they speaking directly to you? Unt how long have you had this problems? The amp was $249.99 new.
