Gear: Andy Fuchs does a Tripledrive Amp Demo (more than a Dumble clone)

Fuchs Tripledrive: more than a Dumble clone

Andy Fuchs does a simple demo of the Fuchs Tripledrive Supreme using a Les Paul with Wolfetone Pickups and a Fuchs 112 Cabinet with an EV-12-L speaker

Based on the highly successful Overdrive Supreme® SLX (favorably reviewed in the February Guitar Player Magazine), the Tripledrive Supreme® features three foot switchable channels of clean, mean and scream. Available in 50, 100 and 150 watt versions, the TDS® features a dedicated chime filled “California Clean Channel” with brite, deep, and rock/jazz switches, as well as mid and gain boosts. Its 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.
