I always wanted a Fuchs, so I recently saved a used clean machine 150 from a guitar center, and it's seriously fantastic. I haven't even scratched the surface of things to do with this amp even though it only does one thing. I'm really happy going straight in with my Es-175. However, my favorite tone is with my carvin fat boy into a sparkle drive in the front, and my Yamaha UD-Stomp in the loop. Sometimes, I'll sub the sparkle drive for a maxon sd-9, which is different, but it's so transparent and adds just the right amount of sustain and grit. As I said, fantastic. Oh, I took out the V30's that were in my open back PRS cab, and put in some Golds. I'm even happier, but still want to experiment with speakers. They change the whole thing SO much. Oh! Andy, can I use this amp as a bass amp? Like jazz trio level? With a bass cab? I need to holler at you guys for a foot switch too. Typical guitar center "it didn't come with one." Once I decide what funtions I'd want to control from the ground, I'll be in touch.
