Mustang Monday Signature Series #1 – BB King
My new Mustang Monday series has begun. For the next 10 – 20 weeks I will be posting video and download links for Mustang III, IV, and V tones for the Fender Mustang V2 Amplifiers.
This first preset is the famous BB King. The tone I used for reference was this clip below. While this tone is slightly darker or has more overdrive than my preset, you can simply crank up the drive to get a very similar sound. When BB is playing softer after the intro part, that is where I have referenced the sound.
I tried a bunch of amp models to get this tome but surprisingly the strange combination of the Bassman amplifier into the Deluxe Reverb Cabinet seemed to work it’s magic. I also used the compressor model which is always on. Feel free to tweak it for the best possible BB King tone you can get. I think there’s a million different ways this could work but for the Mustang III, this is as close as I could get. I hope you enjoy it.
Here’s the sound of the custom patch:
