NAMM 2021 isn't taking place in the physical realm this year, but you'll find all the hottest January gear launches in our guide to the biggest guitar, amp and pedal releases of 2021 so far.

Fender has released the all-new Mustang Micro, a portable amp that seeks to deliver the powerful tones of the wildly-popular Mustang amp collection in a pocket-size package.

A complete personal guitar amplifier that offers versatile tonal options, the Mustang Micro is designed for guitarists who yearn for great tones when jamming silently at home and on-the-go.

By plugging the Mustang Micro directly to your guitar using the rotating input plug and connecting a pair of headphones to the miniature amplifier, a range of Fender amp sounds are immediately accessible.

Boasting 12 amp models from Mustang GTX, the Micro offers a host of clean and dirty tones, which can be further adjusted using the 13 built-in effect models, parameter modify control and adjustable EQ. 

The nifty amp has over four hours of continuous play time and houses a rechargeable lithium ion battery that is charged via USB.

As an added feature, the built-in Bluetooth audio connection allows you to play along to instructional videos or even your favorite tracks using powerful Mustang tones.

The Mustang Micro is available from April 2021 for $99.

If tube amps are more your thing, Fender recently announced two all-new '68-style custom amps, the Vibro Champ and the Pro Reverb.
