    No clips, sorry but I do have one. Terrific sounding, but noisier than the production model. I'd say it's 85% there.

    Mine's not exactly a DR mod, but a Princeton mod, which has a DR sized Merc. OT, and a 12" in a hardwood cab.

    Personally, apart from the 64 DR I used to have, this is the best sounding amp I have ever had.

    I don't have clips but I do have an "andy-modified" Twin on the way with a half-power switch. Can't wait to see how it turned out :dude

    I had a Music Man 112RD that Andy did the mod thing thing to -- Killer amp.

    I sold it --- been kicking myself in the butt ever since.

    A half power switch for a twin is a good thing! Over the weekend I played at a wedding reception and a New Year'e Eve Party. I couldn't turn my Twin up much past 2. It sounded ok but not like it sounds at 5! Too much power for some situations.

    Anyone else got Fuchs mod sound clips?

    My experience with the mods is really good. I have a bassman mod that sounds fantastic. Really nails the Robben sound and has great cleans as well.

    Cool! That is what I want to hear! Do you by chance have any sound clips?

    Not yet. Too busy currently. I owe lots of clips to lots of folks!

    Not sure what you mean but in general, the d-style amps are very easy to EQ. Unlike a Boogie, it's hard to get a bad sound out of them and the lead channel is typically "pre-eq'd" so that you don't have to screw around and compromise your clean or your lead sound.

    I play in a dance/party cover band. We play lots of funk/mowtown/R&B. I like a good strong clean sound for that music most of the time. I normally use an old modified silver-faced twin. I have an old silver-face deluxe that I like the sound of better. I also have a Fuchs modded Deluxe reissue coming. Anyway, I'm curious if some of you gig with a deluxe and are you able to get it loud enough without it breaking up too much? Thats waht i'd like to try. Our drummer is loud. We also have keys, bass, and sax which can get fairly loud. Wht do you think? I could keep the volume lower and turn it up more in the monitors but we only have two seperate mixes so that makes it hard on the other guys that don't want to hear my beautiful playing as loud.

    I don't think you'll have enough headroom for clean funk rhythm with deluxe mod.

    I may try it this weekend. Seems like it may have a little more headroom than a reg. Deluxe. I am a little nervous because we are playing in a very noisy bar and I may need a bit more clean volume. Trouble is the stage in this par is about 10 feet off the ground with a very small staircase. I don';t think I can get my big Twin up there!
