    I am going to put it through its paces tonight at the weekly blues jam. It is an amazingly versatile amp! Just oozes tone and sustain. Came with a ne wll metal footswitch which is really cool. I had the cabinet custom made and loaded to with MojoTone BV30H speakers - they sound wonderful!

    Nice!
    The bloody foot pedal looks dauntingly complicated to me, though.....

    Best, Pete.

    Heck Pete: It's just mid and gain for A channel, mid and gain for the B/C channel and A/B B/C to switch between the three channels. We'll make ya' one with just the two channel switches if you like.

    Darn limey's can't run anything with more than one channel in it lol.

    Lavaman,

    Wow. I'd love to hear one! I also use Mojotone BV30H's with my Boogie Studio/Simul 2:90 setup, and I absolutly love 'em!

    I met Andy Fuchs and his family this past year at American Guitar Boutique in St. Paul, and he was really nice and very helpfull.

    Dude - I was packing up when he was in the middle of playing - I do not know how he consistently plays out of tune and does not stop and correct it - it is so annoying! He even tuned up (without a tuner of course) when he began - still was not in tune but he made the effort....nothing like slop along with bad tuning - makes a good...ahhh..bad tone sandwich....

    I'm foot pedal challenged.....so, hang on, you can go from A to B but you would have had to prep the pedal to go from A to C? It would undoubtably make more sense if I had one in front of me.

    You know what would suit me Andy?

    2 Channel amp.
    One clean, no master, own set of tone controls. One overdrive, master, own set of tone controls (with defeat[gain], natch). Reverb on both but controls for each.

    Then I suppose everyone and his brother has suggested stuff to you......

    Best, Pete.

    The amp performed beautifully at the jam- the sound guy said it cut through the mix very well. Great smooth sustain and the mid boosts really come in handy. Still working on dialing it in completely to my liking, but overall it was very repsponsive, warm and full of great tones...

    Your always welcome (as are any forumites) to pop by the shop. I just ask you give a call ahead of time (a day or so in advance would be nice), so I make sure I am around and I've showered and dressed appropriately...lol.


    I enjoy the TDS when I run it as an uber-ODS. Channel one clean channel three dirty, completely separate controls for each, and a nicely different feel and response to the two types of tone. One button gets you from clean to mean in a millisecond.

    I played this Triple OD Supreme 150w beast at NAMM at very very verrry low levels. You could talk over my playing. Even then the gain and sustain being sucked* from the guitar and flowing through the tubes was insane. Incredibly touch and volume pot sensitive. I'd love to try this at a decent volume.



    *in a great way!
