    Hi Chaps,

    I just thought I'd show off my new amp which arrived yesterday.

    Andy has been very helpful in working through this with me, overseas deals and shipping are never straightforward. Fedex did have me biting my nails on Monday after a screw up in Customs but we worked it out and here it is at last.

    ODS 100, Artist Plus footswitch, Fuchs 1x12 cab (Fuchs Fat-S1 speaker), UK voltage operation.

    Hi Chaps,

    Scott, the footswitch is as follows:

    Reverb, Gain, Mid, OD, Loop Bypass, Mute

    The only unidentified switch on the back is a ground switch which I think I'll never use.

    big hair, yes I gig quite a lot, I have a gig list on my website:

    There are quite a few UK players interested in the Fuchs amps but only a handful have taken the plunge so far. You'd be welcome to come and play through it too at our Monday night Jams. Check the Info page or the links page.

    Cheers,
    Rob.

    Rob,

    Congrats on the new amp. I know that you've had a Fuchs mod for a while. Nice looking setup too. Enjoy! :)

    Hi Rob, Enjoy your new toy.

    I assume you still use your 2 X12 "Fuchs" Modded combo, is this the amp you require the EV's for?

    Hi Graham,

    I'm still looking for an EVM12L but it would be to try in this cab now. The Fuchs FAT-S1 speaker is really excellent though, the best I've tried yet with the mod amp, i just want to try an EV for reference really. I should go over to Pauls and run it through his 1x12 and 2x12 Dumble EVM cabs and see how it sounds, no doubt I'll do that at some point.

    The mod amp is back in a head box again to use with this new cabinet. The combo cab is currently on ebay, search for Fender Twin and you'll find it. Here's a pic of the mod amp as of yesterday:

    Fits on top of the cab perfectly, this was a surprise bonus of the new cab!.

    Speak to you soon,
    Rob.

    It's a new Fuchs cab, bought at the same time as the head. Has the Fuchs FAT-S1 speaker in it.
