Channel one is a classic style mid driven American-voiced mid-focused bluesy overdrive, but with an attitude. While it has plenty of gain on tap, it also features a smooth warm and round overdrive tone with lush harmonics and detail. It can be run clean by lowering the input gain and raising the channel master. High, Mid and Low controls offer a wide tonal range.
Channel two features a scooped midrange, traditional high gain metal voice. An aggressive edge on the high end, an extended chunk on the low end, with amp gain to shred, hammer and scream, to your hearts delight. Both channels are pedal friendly and feature dedicated tubes for each channel (no shared tubes) to permit selecting tubes to enhance each channels tonal signature.
Both channels feature: Gain, high, mid, low, and master volume controls.
The power amp stage features: An accent control, which adds high end detail and bite, while a thrust control adjusts the level and tightness of the low end to get maximum bass from any speaker cabinet, and a global master volume keeps things under control. A full range effects loop is provided with true hardwire bypass and signal level selector for -10 or + 4db operation.
Low noise is assured through careful internal grounding, DC preamp tube filaments, as well as shielded audio cables and selected tubes throughout. The power amp features a high energy power supply with high speed switching diodes, a precision wound choke, and a large power supply reserve for tight controlled response up to full power. Like all Fuchs® amps, it's built on an aircraft grade aluminum T-6 aluminum chassis with fan cooling and stainless steel hardware throughout. A custom would output transformer has 4, 8 and 16 ohm outputs, and is highly overrated and custom wound for Fuchs®. Units are CE and RoHs certified, available is 120 or 240 volt power configurations.
The Mantis® Comes standard with 6550 tubes but is also available with EL34s or KT88s.
