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.
