The ODS represents Andy Fuchs’ goal to take over 15 years of design evolution and customer feedback on the original Overdrive Supreme platform into the next millennium.
The ODS-II captures all the tones that made the original Fuchs ODS amps
legendary, but allows massive tonal flexibility via totally separate clean and
overdrive channels, each with their own dedicated tone controls, mid and gain boosts, and master volumes.
Despite this tremendous range, the ODS-II is still an easy to operate amp.
Channel one gives tones from California style cleans to Classic rock grind.
Channel two covers all that channel one offers but with over-the-top near-shred levels of gain as well.
The amp has a deep, lush digital reverb with level and decay controls, and a global master and accent control.
The rear panel features dual FX loops, digital bias monitoring with external bias controls for each tube, and 5 speaker outputs.
The ODS-II is built on a fan cooled, aircraft grade aluminum chassis which
includes hi/low/off fan switches. Available in all global voltages.
Embraced by players as diverse as Al Di Meola, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring, Jake Cinninger, Luther Dickinson to country artists like The Zac Brown Band’s Coy Bowles, the ODS® has truly become a classic product on the landscape of stages worldwide.
