Overdrive Supreme® II Series
The ODS represents Andy Fuchs’ goal to take over 15 years of design evolution and customer feedback on the original Overdrive Supreme platform into the next millennium.
The ODS-II captures all the tones that made the original Fuchs ODS amps
legendary, but allows massive tonal flexibility via totally separate clean and
overdrive channels, each with their own dedicated tone controls, mid and gain boosts, and master volumes.
Despite this tremendous range, the ODS-II is still an easy to operate amp.
Channel one gives tones from California style cleans to Classic rock grind.
Channel two covers all that channel one offers but with over-the-top near-shred levels of gain as well.
The amp has a deep, lush digital reverb with level and decay controls, and a global master and accent control.
The rear panel features dual FX loops, digital bias monitoring with external bias controls for each tube, and 5 speaker outputs.
The ODS-II is built on a fan cooled, aircraft grade aluminum chassis which
includes half power and hi/low/off fan switches. Available in all global voltages.
The casino series
The Fuchs® Casino Series delivers the great Fuchs® ODS® style tones that built our business, to a more affordable format. While sharing circuit DNA with our ODS®/TDS® series, a simpler construction style and more basic feature set allow us to bring these same great tones to the working professional.
All Casino models share this same three tube preamp stage featuring two channels with a full treble, middle, bass tone stack, a unique adjustable gain boost that gives increased drive on both channels while keeping the tone controls operational.
Channel one works as a non-master volume low gain clean channel. Add the boost for more drive and crunch or reduce the guitar volume to clean things up.
Channel two features an input gain control, an output master volume and a unique post overdrive tone control which takes you from woman-tones through D-style to an English inspired sparkling plexi range.
The Casino amps feature the same great digital reverb technology found in our Verbrator™ pedal. A unique circuit design mixes the wet reverb signal with absolutely no affect on the pure tube dry signal quality in any way. It also features an adjustable decay control and is warm and bouncy unlike most digital reverbs can be.
Mantis Jr. Series
The Mantis Jr. Series of amps answers the demand for a heavier sounding amp in the Fuchs line-up.
The Mantis® Jr. is based on the ODS®/Casino sized chassis platform, has two channels with a shared Bass, Middle, Treble tone stack, a passive effects loop, and 4-8-16 ohm outputs and will include a 2-way foot switch for channel switching and gain boost.
The two channels each feature a distinct voicing: Channel-1 is a traditional classic English style EQ with tons of gain on tap, cleans up easily from the guitar, and works equally well for chunky rhythm or “brown sound” lead tones.
Channel-2 features a higher gain structure with a more strident clipping structure for “modern rock and metal tones”.
This amp also features a foot controlled preset gain boost, has both a presence and thrust control which alter the damping and voicing of the high and low end of the power amp section respectively.
With four models, each available as a head, or combo, we are certain there is a Mantis Jr. model that is just right for you.
Using the same design and manufacturing methods as we pioneered on our Casino series, we offer 4 watt, 20 watt, 50 watt and 100 watt models at the same price point as their Casino series counterparts.
Overdrive Supreme Classic
The ODS-Classic ©represents the evolution of the original Overdrive Supreme © platform into the 21st Century. The ODS-Classic © still retains many of the features that made the Overdrive Supreme a choice for players all genres.
Players as widely diverse as Al Di Meola, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring of Widespread Panic, Coy Bowles of Zac Brown and Jake Cinninger of Umphreys McGee have all played through an ODS for “their tone.”
The ODS Classic is the result of almost 20 years of customer feedback as well as Andy’s own journey in tone.
Available in head or combo format in 2 x 6L6 50-Watt and 4 x 6l6 100-Watt version with half power switch. The amps share the same fan cooled aluminum 17” chassis size of it’s predecessor and the same great form factor that make them grab and go with manageable weight.
During our development of both the Casino amps and the ODS-II, many fresh and innovative approaches were taken to broaden the sonic pallet of tones the ODS platform could deliver. Many of these advances were applied to the ODS-Classic: The Classic (like the ODS-II) has dual gain boosts.
One boost keeps the tone controls operating and has a user adjustable boost level, while the original fixed tone stack bypass boost of the ODS remains. This means two distinctive voices, but voices that when combined, widen the available gain range more than double.
One size does not fit all. We are proud to offer a wide range of speaker cabinets to compliment your Fuchs amp purchase. From Mini 112 cabinets to 212 enclosures, we have solutions for every gig. Did we mention that we are the exclusive distributor for Feiten Cabs?
