SCANDAL meets Mustang GT

The Fender Mustang GT series amps comprise of next-generation digital amplifiers with the latest wireless technology. Its possibilities extend further by using the Fender TONE app. This time, a preset distribution was implemented through the Fender TONE app under the supervision of Japanese artists. Putting the spotlight on NORAN (LUNA SEA), Ken (L’Arc~en~Ciel), Soichiro Yamanouchi (Fuji Fabric), and SCANDAL, we closed in on their processes of preset creations and attention to sound creation. In the fourth installation, we will be reporting on the sound creation of SCANDAL's HARUNA and MAMI.






I like the power of the British 80's (HARUNA)

HARUNA mainly uses a Fender Telecaster, which produces a powerful backing sound with a bit of distortion. First, she tried out amplifier types to decide on the basic sound. Although she tried the 「British 60's」, aiming for simple distortion, her final choice was surprisingly high gain 「British 80's」. In order to add a feeling of effortlessness, add in a compressor behind the amplifier and adjust the middle.

「I tried a British 60's, which is close to what I usually use as a sub, but I like the sound of the British 80's. I liked that it has plenty of power. You can't normally add (connect) an effector after an amp, but you can do it only with a Mustang GT. Doing so creates a distinctive sound, and it's fun because your range of sound making is expanded.」 (HARUNA)


One of the appeals of the Mustang GT is that it helps me discover new things (HARUNA)

「Time passes by so quickly when you're playing around (laughs). I'm happy to be able to easily try out amps and effectors that I never challenged myself to before. One of the appeals of the Mustang GT is that it helps me discover new things, like, "Maybe this kind of sound surprisingly suits me?" Even if I go to a music studio, since I can only try the amps that are there, I think the reverse thinking of trying the real thing after knowing the ambiance of various amps and pedals with MUSTANG GT is also a great thing.」 (HARUNA)


For the amp, I really do have to go with the British 80's. It's powerful! (MAMI)

MAMI gives color to the band sound with a wide range of sounds from heavy sounds using fuzz to sounds full of creativity utilizing Whammy pedals. In addition to the basic backing sound, this time two patterns of distorted sounds using familiar fuzz for SCANDAL were created.

For basic amps, select 「British 80's」, the same as HARUNA, since it's close to the amp she normally uses. For preset 1, aiming for a fuzz sound, connect a 「Big Fuzz」 in the front of the amp (pre-FX), which brings it closer to her usual sound. Try it while switching the sound of just the amp and the sound with the effect by bypassing, and fine-tune the lowness and sustain. Additionally, add a「'65 Spring」 as post-FX. 「'65 Spring」 is a classic reverb that was installed in mid-1960's Fender amps.

Preset 2 is a basic backing sound. The amp is still a 「British 80's」, but the volume is raised while suppressing the gain, which raises the middle and supresses the treble and bass. The 「'63 Spring」 is a reverb that is connected as post-FX. This is the reverb that was installed in Fender amps in the early 1960's.

「I also made distorted sounds using fuzz while making basic sounds. There are many fans that copy the distorted sound, but it's difficult to do, and you have to buy a lot of equipment. So, I created it thinking they'd be happy if they could download it as a preset.

For the amp, I really do have to go with the British 80's. It's powerful! I like the sound. You can do anything if you remember that the cabinets, gates, and bias can be changed. It was very close to my usual sound (laughs). Basically, I decided on the amp and tried the connection of the effects with pre (before using the amp) or post (after using the amp) and adjusted the level of each. It's difficult to adjust, but interesting!」


Good sound won't be produced even if you use a multi-effect pedal (MAMI)

「This is exactly the thing you can do anything with, including features and sound! Also, I was very surprised that it's compact and affordable. You can do all kinds of things with it, so the possibilities are vast. It's hard to collect so much equipment, and since good sound won't be produced even if you use a multi-effect pedal, it's likely that you won't touch other amps if you get a Mustang GT to start with (laughs). I'd like for you to go to a music store and try it out.」 (MAMI)

Actually, Mami drove a Mustang (probably at GT) at their Stamp music video, LOL!

Anyway, it's cool to hear from the ladies that we can easily channel their setup on amp modeling apps.

@MamiNoodles

Yes you are quite right and Mami was the only one they trusted to drive it as it cost a fortune to hire Happy

But getting back to the topic I tried out the new Mustang GT amps at our local music store and they are awesome...not that I can afford one of course.
But I am glad Mami said she liked the old British amps, I am still using my 200 watt Marshall from the 60's Happy
