    My main amp for the last 16 years has been a tweed Fuchs ODS 50 watt head into a tweed Fuchs 1x12 cabinet. This is one of Andy's earlier ones that he built in his basement. I've been wanting something a little smaller for jams and smaller clubs. I ordered a limited edition Fender DRRI, pine cabinet, with a Celestion 12-65 speaker. Had it drop shiped to Andy direct from MF, and it sings! This is a DRRI Fuchs ODS mod...

    That's my kind of Fender, for Fuchs sake.

    Located not too far from me in Clifton , N.J. is the Fuchs Amp Company . From what I understand , Andy Fuchs can take an amp and customize it to your liking . Once he goes beyond certain specs , he must by law put his name on it . Musicians pay top dollar for his work and he's in demand for his quality product

    Wow. I never even heard of a collaboration between Fender and Fuchs.
    Sounds promising. Enjoy it.

    It's not really a collaboration as such. You can send Andy an amp from the list on the company website (Fender, Music Man, Traynor) to have the ODS mod done. Of course they will work on/repair other amps also. It's not exactly the same as buying an ODS, but it sure is a fantastic little grab and go amp.

    Thunder 58, we used too live and gig up in NJ, Andy and Annette are friends, and he would sometimes come out and sit in with our band for a few songs. :)

    First gig with it was New Years Eve at the Beckley Convention Center. LOVE it! Sweet cleans, and just incredible singing sustain. Sorry just had to share...

    If they made the FUCHS emblem a tad more prominent
    it could revitalize the entire guitar industry!

    I just want to apologize to the person whom posted above me . I was quick to jump in anger and I had banned him . I realized later on I was wrong and the member is in no way a bad person nor does the member single out any one particular group . My sincere apologies to this member
    If you know whom I'm referring too , please continue to be his friend , he is a good person . I do not at this time wish to mention who it is as I feel horrible that I may have caused enough heartache
    * member reinstated
