    I'm going to try to get my pedalboard down to the Fuchs dealer this week to try this out. In the mean time I was wondering if anyone else here has tried the CJOD with a Fuchs ODS. Do they sound good together?

    Thanks again!

    Where's the local Fuchs dealer, Deaj? I didn't know anyone around here carried them.

    If you want to try it through my Fuchs ODS/SLX 100 watter let me know. I'm about 40 minutes from Edmonds. And I want to hear a CJOD. :)

    American Music is the Seattle dealer. You'd have to check with them or Andy to find out about stock.

    I had a CJOD and ran it into the clean channel of my Fuchs. Absolutely killer! The best OD I have ever heard. I had to sell it recently and I am still crying.

    So far the feedback on this question is most promising!

    Thanks for the links Boomer, Tomo.

    Excellent clips Tomo! The CJOD does indeed seem to bond well with the Fuchs.

    I'm now very seriously contemplating selling my Rivera Jake to make the ODS-50 purchase possible. We're buying a new house and, after reviewing the finances this eveining, I'll have no money available for gear for quite a while. The Fuchs would negate the need for my Zendrive and Mosferatu simplifying my pedalboard as well (I found the amps overdrive covers similar territory for me). I have some miscelaneous gear on the 'Bay to raise part of the money. If those auctions do as well as I hope then I'll likely be putting my much beloved Rivera Jake up to cover the difference. We'll see :)

    You're welcome Deaj,

    Congrats on your house! I hear you. All money
    goes to my house and family.

    My Fuchs 50 SLX with my flavor mod. More nice
    clean tone. I get great clean for my funk and jazz
    (I never get this tone with my ES335 from my BF fenders)
    so full yet not boomy. Great tone for my arch top
    Sakashta too.

    Fot my upcoming cd, I did use my od channel from
    my FUCHS 50. And I use my cjod for some tunes.
    You can get really great od tone from the amp too.
    So you get more variety of od tone. I use boost too.

    Hope you'll have a chance to use Fuchs 50.

    Tomo

    Ok - I went back to the dealer with my guitar and pedalboard so that I could try the ODS-50 with a familiar gear and the CJOD.

    As much as I enjoyed playing through the Fuchs with a demo guitar I was really blown away by the amp with my guitar (I really love my homebrew USACG strat :cool: ).

    The ODS-50 really takes pedals wonderfully - especially OD pedals (specifically the Zendrive and the CJOD). The amps overdrive does cover similar territory as the Zendrive though each different flavors of smooooth :).

    And the CJOD in front of the ODS-50?

    !!!!! WOW !!!!!


    !!!!! WOW !!!!!


    There's so much more of what I love about this pedal through this amp as compared to my Jake.

    I also played with the AnalogMan Mini BiComp for a few minutes (mostly the Juicer side). It's a much more expressive sound through the Fuch - just awesome! Same with the CompROSSor.

    I must have an ODS-50 SLX!!!

    Deaj,
    Stop!!!!!! You're killin' me. I have to find a CJOD! We exchanged thoughts about the Zendrive when it came out and it's been my overdrive choice through my Demeter.......but I have to get my hands on a CJOD. I missed getting on the list so I've posted on the WTB Board several times but no response. If anyone knows of one available please get in touch with me.
    Thanks,
    Rick
