Product Description

With the development of the ODS Classic series, the gigging musician can now afford an amp that sounds like the original Overdrive Supreme (also known as the ODS). The ODS Classic represents not only a continuance but further advances the original ODS platform. Like Fuchs ODS-II and Casino amps, constant customer feedback and Andy Fuchs’ continuing quest to improve the tone and flexibility of our amps resulted in a quantum step forward for the platform.

Developed side by side with the ODS-II the ODS Classic brings many Fuchs exclusive features we’ve developed for the ODS-II architecture. Unique features like dual gain boosts: One boost allows the main tone controls to remain active and provides an internally user variable boost. A three position EQ switch gives you a center position which additionally bypasses the tone controls. These two boosts may be used together or separately, as well as along with the mid boost allowing the widest gain range of any amp if it’s kind. The mid boost has two operating points for fattening the tone with selectable slopes. The brite switch (like the ODS-II) offers dual settings which allow further tailoring of the high end. The deep switch is ideal for warming up single coil pickups or enhancing a jazz guitar tone.

The overdrive section features overdrive input (controls amount of distortion) overdrive out (controls level of the overdrive channel) and the Fuchs exclusive overdrive tone control allowing a wide range from woman tone through D-style to Plexi on the drive channel. A global master and accent control the final level after clean and dirty ratio has been set.

The deep and lush Spin Semiconductor 16 bit digital reverb of the ODS-II and Casino series is now standard in the ODS Classic. Featuring variable level and decay it allows for small room through pan style through cathedral depth with low noise and the highest musicality as it’s mixed through our loop. The FX loop is the same great ODS loop players love: It allows series or parallel as well as line and pedal level devices. It’s in circuit full time as it also mixes the wet and dry reverb signals for maximum musicality, transparency and low noise.

Like the original ODS the Classic is built on an aircraft grade aluminum fan cooled chassis with flow through ventilation. All models feature a high-current, customwound power transformer, DC preamp tube filaments, separate bias controls for each power tube, internal overdrive trimmers, regulated DC relay power and a custom wound output transformer featuring 4-8- and 16 ohm outputs. An IEC power connector and universal global voltages with CE approval are standard. Matched, selected and graded power and preamp tubes are standard as is a 5-year warranty on everything except tubes.

Bridging the pricing gap between the Casino Series and the NEW ODS-II Series amps, the NEW ODS Classic Series amps continue the legacy of our flagship amp at a price within reach of the casual gigging musician. The original Overdrive Supreme (also known as the ODS) became an iconic amp over its near 17 year lifespan. When first introduced, it brought the previous unobtainable legendary D-style tones to a greater audience while adding features like a killer reverb, mid and gain boosts, separate bias controls per power tube and advanced construction techniques. Embraced by players as diverse as Al Di Meola, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes and others, it’s gained player and industry respect.

My favorite amp

What is your opinion of this product?
The FUCHS ODS Classic has become my favorite amp. I have a number of other high end boutique amps, and this amp is the one that I use the most. It is the sound I have been searching for. From R&B, Soul, and Funk to Rock, Blues, and Country, this amp does it all for me.

Worth every hard earned penny!!
What is your opinion of this product?
Came upon the notion that I needed to begin a tone quest. After many failed attempts to achieve an amp with the same energy and sounds heard in my head, I am finally satisfied. Real guitar player feature loaded, d-like tone quality, and gets quiet enough to play at home with the master level control. Not a Marshall or Mesa chugga rhythm style amp so prepare to be a lead player almost exclusively once you pair up with this articulate beauty. The more saturated gain settings get almost fuzz pedal like, but still awesome. Still trying to wrap my head around all this amp has to offer but in a really good fun never ends kind of way. Can tell I will be happy with it for years to come. Family heirloom kind of great. Higest recommendations here.

Best Amp I've ever had
What is your opinion of this product?
Had an opportunity to play through the Fuchs 50 watt classic and was blown away. I've been playing guitar for 50 years and used several brands. Of course Fender, Boogie, Rivera and Bogner. This one kills them. If your looking for a Robin Ford (Talk to your Daughter) CD tone. This amp does it without the Dumble price tag. Nice clean to overdrive tones. The overdrive is very tight on the low end, something I've not been able to get on many of my other amps. Extremely loud for a 50 watt 6L6 output section, reminds me of my old 64 Fender Super Reverb. Great amp! Easy to dial in the tones that work for the guitar. Both Humbuckers and single coil PU's. Love it!

WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I've owned many amps from cheap to super expensive. This amp is by far the best sounding, well made and overall tone monster I've ever owned. The customer service department at FUCHS is hands down one of the best in the business! I'm an active musician that's been gigging for over 25 years and have tried to make cheap amps sound good, well it doesn't work! So my advice to my fella musicians who are in the market for a new amp, SAVE YOUR MONEY and buy this amp or any other from FUCHS! You will not regret it!!! Got to give a shout out to my peeps at American Musical Supply as well, Great service, Great pricing, Easy to work with! Thanks again!!

Monster Tone!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
For years I've had my eye on a Fuchs ODS II but just couldn't justify spending the dough. When the ODS Classic came out and I was able to hear it, I was sold right away. Incredible tone and still has the bells and whistles I wanted. I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this one!
