Positive Aspects

Flexibility: With its fuse interlink software; you can link the amp with your computer or laptop. This functionality allows you to change and create your tones easily. It also allows you control your volume to any desired keys that you wish to experiment with.

Power ratio: This allows you to play both indoors and for public functions. For the large functions, all you need is to connect to a larger system and you are set. This is amazingly good especially for a small combo. So whether playing indoors or performing on stage this will definitely sort you out.

Remodeling Ability: With its 100 presets, it enables you create many bands all in one. This also allows you to slow down or speed up your key to your preference. You can also dub your recordings over the backing tracks with so much ease. Recording is made easier by the inbuilt sd reader.

Negative Aspects

With this amp you have to keep scrolling up and down through the different presets to get the one you are really looking for. This means that for you to find your preset, you have to over write the already available ones. The keys for the backups are not provided on the tutorials or the manual so you can only guess which makes it cumbersome especially for beginners.

Duplicated presets: Although the amp boasts of having many presets, most of them are duplicated. However you can create your own range of presets by downloading from the internet or recording your own.

The sound quality is also not the best especially because of the speaker. This may not work so well especially for big functions.


The Fender G Dec amplifier is generally good for your gigs whether practicing privately or for your small group of people. It is also light in weight hence makes carrying it around easy. If you do not already have one you can include it in your wish list.
