Ratings and Reviews
Great app, keep up the good work
The negative reviews are definitely from people who don’t understand how to run an amp or an app. Connect your amp to WiFi, simply update it like the owners manual says and run the latest app. It’s that easy. I guess pressing one button while turning on the amp is too hard for some people to understand.
I have 10+ amps, everything from a Randall stack to vintage tube amps, tons of pedals, and yet I always seem to use my GT200 with the app more than all the others. If you actually understand how an amp works, then this app with a GT series amp is all you need. Wether you’re in your basement practicing, gigging outdoors, or anything in between. If you’re a person who just want to plug in your guitar, have a crappy tone, and just make noise, then stick with your Peavey amp and a First Act strat copy and call if a day. No need to leave a bad review just because you finally purchased a big boy amp and you don’t know how to run it.
Good idea, poor execution
Let me start out by saying this. I am majoring in computer information technology at Purdue university, so before you assume I’m some old man who doesn’t know how to use technology, I can assure you this is not the case.
On paper this app is great. It’s a revolutionary way to play your guitar with a great tone without all the hours of fine tweaking to get a better tone. However, whoever designed the Bluetooth/WiFi functionality of this app needs to be fired YESTERDAY. The app refuses to connect to your amp if you haven’t updated it which is fine, just update your amp stupid. But upon updating your amp there’s still a VERY solid chance the tone app will refuse to connect to your amp EVEN IF ITS ALREADY CONNECTED TO YOUR PHONE. This review would be totally different if this was a once in a while thing, but I’m consistently dedicating 30+ minutes every time I want to find a new tone to troubleshooting just because this app, which is literally designed for the amp I’m using(Mustang GT 100 btw), is about as reliable as dog s***. I’m not one to write reviews so the bottom line is this: I want to love this app, it’s a fantastic idea for FREE. But it’s poor network design is infuriating beyond belief. I guess you get what you pay for 🤷🏽♂️

Very handy addition to the amp!
If I were able to do a half-star, I would’ve rated the app 4.5; it’s a very nice app, but has a few nuisances.
It’s a great way to immediately access certain presets without having to scroll through the whole list to get to the ones you want, and it’s very handy for creating/editing presets. This is especially true when renaming them; doing it from the amp is a time-consuming pain. It’s also nice to not have to put the guitar down or hang over the amp whenever you want to change something or adjust volume, you can just do it real quick from your phone.
The only issue I have is that the connectivity can be troublesome. My phone will have a hard time finding the amp through Bluetooth and usually have to resort to restarting the amp, occasionally twice over. Restarting the amp does usually do the trick, I originally wasted a lot of time trying many other methods to get around this obstacle.
Once it is connected, though, the app is very resourceful and highly recommended. It’s worth the starting-up hassle when all is said and done.
