The Fuchs® Casino Series delivers the great Fuchs® ODS® style tones that built our business, to a more affordable format. While sharing circuit DNA with our ODS®/TDS® series, a simpler construction style and more basic feature set allow us to bring these same great tones to the working professional.
All Casino models share this same three tube preamp stage featuring two channels with a full treble, middle, bass tone stack, a unique adjustable gain boost that gives increased drive on both channels while keeping the tone controls operational.
Channel one works as a non-master volume low gain clean channel. Add the boost for more drive and crunch or reduce the guitar volume to clean things up.
Channel two features an input gain control, an output master volume and a unique post overdrive tone control which takes you from woman-tones through D-style to an English inspired sparkling plexi range.
The Casino amps feature the same great digital reverb technology found in our Verbrator pedal. A unique circuit design mixes the wet reverb signal with absolutely no affect on the pure tube dry signal quality in any way. It also features an adjustable decay control and is warm and bouncy unlike most digital reverbs can be.
The Casino series standard features:
Front panel power switch, rear panel fuse holder and standby switch. Regulated DC preamp tube heaters and relay power for lowest noise and stability from line voltage variation.
All models feature a bias control for each power tube, each with an internal test point so matched power tubes are not required. The amps also feature a buffered series effects loop, 4-8-16 ohm outputs, via custom wound power and output transformers.
The amps are built in an aircraft grade aluminum chassis and are a mix of high quality .062 double sided PC boards and point to point wiring. Channel switching is provided via sealed noise free relay switching.
All preamp and power tubes are selected, matched and graded for lowest noise and highest performance.
Our cabinets are made of light-ply, an environmentally friendly highly resonant plywood that is about half the weight of birch or pine cabinets. Export units are CE and RoHs compliant. All components are the same premium quality components selected for low noise and sonic attributes.
Foot Switch Options:
The standard footswitch is a 2-way overdrive (channel) and gain boost. By popular demand our Artist Footswitch is now available as an option on all Casino models. This gives control over channel, gain boost, reverb, and mid boost functions.
