Fuchs Amp: Mantis Jr. Series - 50w Head or 112 Combo
The 50 watt version of the Mantis Jr. is intended for the stage. With the ability to change your tone by swapping the stock 6L6 tubes for the more british-flavored EL-34 tubes, the Mantis Jr can be voiced to suit your style. Pair the 50 watt head to our Feiten 212 cabinet for a huge heavy tone without the back-breaking weight of a full stack.
2 x 6L6 (EL-34 with re-bias). 50 Watts Class AB 3-12AX7 preamp tubes. (19”x11.5”x8.5”) 30lbs.
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.
