Fuchs Amp: Mantis Jr. Series - 20w Head or 112 Combo
The 20 watt version of our Mantis Jr excels in the studio and onstage. The feedback we get from Casino owners is that the 20 watt range is ideal for when you want to really light up the amp without ruining your hearing. Wind up the Mantis Jr 20 watt model and you are rewarded with huge tone without the ear fatigue. Pair this model with our Feiten 212 cabinet and you have an amazing stage rig.

The Mantis Jr. Series of amps answers the demand for a heavier sounding amp in the Fuchs line-up. The Mantis® Jr. is based on the ODS®/Casino sized chassis platform, has two channels with a shared Bass, Middle, Treble tone stack, a passive effects loop, and 4-8-16 ohm outputs and will include a 2-way foot switch for channel switching and gain boost.
The two channels each feature a distinct voicing: Channel-1 is a traditional classic English style EQ with tons of gain on tap, cleans up easily from the guitar, and works equally well for chunky rhythm or “brown sound” lead tones. Channel-2 features a higher gain structure with a more strident clipping structure for “modern rock and metal tones”.
This amp also features a foot controlled preset gain boost, has both a presence and thrust control which alter the damping and voicing of the high and low end of the power amp section respectively.
With four models, each available as a head, or combo, we are certain there is a Mantis Jr. model that is just right for you. Using the same design and manufacturing methods as we pioneered on our Casino series, we offer 4 watt, 20 watt, 50 watt and 100 watt models at the same price point as their Casino series counterparts.
