A note about our reviews. Many of our "house" reviews are very simple in nature, they offer images, spec lists, and either video or audio clips for you to enjoy. Our sincere hope is that you take a good look through the catalog of reviews, compare sounds and features and then make a really informed decision about musical instruments. On many we do offer some comments about the gear, but it is our opinion/ recommendations etc. We are not nieve enough to believe that one guitar or amp, heck any instrument is the perfect one for every player of that instrument. So one professional to another - check them all out, enjoy them for what they are, send us feedback and learn as much as you possibly can about your instrument. Use these reviews to make a good purchase decision, even if it means a purchase from someone else or a used piece of gear. We will be here a LONG time and are very pleased you have decided to use this free resource, someday we would love to have you as a customer of Indoor Storm. If you think this is a great service before the sale, you should try us out for during and after!
Fuchs Tripledrive Supreme 50 Head, "Black", Based on the highly successful Overdrive Supreme‚ĄĘ SLX, (favorably reviewed in the February Guitar Player Magazine), the Triple Drive Supreme features three footswitchable channels of clean, mean and scream. Available in 50,100 and 150 watt versions, the TDS features a dedicated chime filled ‚ÄúCalifornia Clean Channel‚ÄĚ with brite, deep, and rock/jazz switches, as well as mid and gain boosts. It's second and third channels are based on our successful Overdrive Supreme clean and mean channels. The amp is controlled by a 6-way footswitch (included), which provides channel switching, as well as independent control of mid and gain boosts for both channels. An extra (separate) footswitch jack for the reverb is also available, as is the artist footswitch option.
The amp features 4, 8 and 16 ohm outputs, a full-time all-tube buffered effects loop with series or parallel operation.
Like the Overdrive Supreme, the loop features separate send and return level controls, a series/parallel switch and a trim control to permit line or pedal level device interface. The loop inputs and outputs are ‚Äúlive‚ÄĚ whether the loop is terminated or not. This means the send output may be used as a line out, and the return input may be used as a spare line level input for a keyboard, drum machine, or other signal input, at any time. The reverb features a spacious Accutronics long decay 6-spring reverb driven by a push-pull current drive amp and an ultra low noise return amp using bi-fet op-amp technology. Fully adjustable input and output levels. Like the ODS, the Tripledrive‚ĄĘ features fan cooling, an aircraft grade T-6 aluminum chassis, individual tube bias adjusts and regulated B+ and DC preamp tube filaments for lowest noise and consistent performance despite line noise or variations.
The chassis (like all Fuchs products) is aircraft grade aluminum, our internal construction is mixed PC board and hard wired. A detachable power cord is standard. By using single point grounding, a regulated and buffered high voltage preamp power supply, the amp is dead quiet and free of hum at all operating levels.
