    I know somebody who’s tried one. Me. I bought one while I was shopping for someone else. I wanted a self-contained, small modeling amp for my bedroom. It’s a 1x8” combo, but it sounds bigger. It has twenty amp models, plus dirt boxes, modulations, delays, and reverbs. I like the LCD screen and the dial for editing. If I’d had this amplifier when I first started playing in the early ‘90s, I would have spent more time playing and less time trying to improve the sound of my amp.

    i needed a small practice amp and vacation amp. I ended up going with the Fender Champ X2. its sounds good at low volume and has real tube tone. it starts to mush up above half volume where as something like a Fender Pro Jr realy shines at just below that level to almost all the way up. The Champ has very usable built in FX for working out ideas or practice. Its kind of a Swiss Army knife of small amps for people who want real tube tone at low volumes. A speaker upgrade does wonders for the tone of this amp.

    What size speaker does it have, and what speaker did you go with?

    or at least the Manual thinks so

    It is probably for firmware updates, too.

    I read on Sweetwater’s site that the USB connection “assists in preset management and patch loading“, but I haven’t seen that anywhere else.

    My guess is that there was some sort of editing software that was available. It might still be available out there if you look.

    That is likely for the FUSE software interface. You can upload and download patches and replace the stock patches that came with the amp using the software.

    In order to find out, I have to buy a USB cable that fits the amp.

    ok so its a micro USB

    not the USB-C that the new phones have
    Not the Mini USB that the Playstation 3 controllers use
    Not the Odd Lightning thing Apple is fond of
    Not the USB -B that old printers use

    Its the Micro USB that Phones 2 years ago used

    oh

    ok

    The LT25 is based on the GT series. It won't use Fuse. Fender killed all fuse support anyway. So that wouldn't make sense. If anything, it uses Fender Tone if it uses anything at all.

    The Mustang I-V amps used Fuse and those are the previous generation. So the LT25 definitely wouldn't use it.

    I don’t think it uses Tone, either. Tone is a phone app that uses Bluetooth, and my amp didn’t show up when I tried to run the app. Still, the user interface seems complete as-is. The amp uses a clever jog dial and enter combination button, in conjunction with a small number of other buttons and a color LCD screen to give access to all the adjustable parameters.

    I just got an LT25 recently. It has no Bluetooth so won't work with the Fender Tone Android/iOS apps, but it does work via USB with the Fender Tone desktop app for Windows 10 and MacOS. I've successfully used FT desktop on Win10 to update my LT25's firmware.

    The USB connection also allows recording with DAW software (e.g. Audacity), though I haven't tried this yet.

    After updating my LT25's firmware it now has 60 modelling presets - the original 30 from Fender plus 30 empty presets for storing your own. FT desktop shows a library of 100 models, any of which you can save into an empty preset (or even replace an existing one) on the LT25 for subsequent use. FT desktop also allows you to basically manage the LT25 and modify presets from your computer instead of via the amp's rotary control and buttons. (I guess the FT smartphone apps may work similarly, but I haven't used them.)

    Being a total guitar newbie I must say I'm really impressed by the versatility of the LT25! The only downside is that I spend more time playing with the amp than I do learning how to play guitar properly!

    The Fender Tone desktop app can be downloaded here:

    How does it sound? Can you compare it to any other Fender amps out there?
