For anyone interested in Fuchs Amps in Canada. Here is the email I sent:

Do you have a Canadian Dealer – Ontario area? Didn’t see one under your dealer list.

Here is the answer I received:

We're actually working on it. Hope to know within a month or so.

You don't need that much. :) You can get them used for under $2000 on ebay.

...that is enticing, but i can't imagine spending that kind of money on speculation. i'm a little mail-order shy when it comes to big ticket stuff.

not to mention, if i'm going to spend that kind of money, i want it custom made.

I don't blame you, if you haven't tried a Fuchs before I'd suggest you do before buying. She's a completely different animal.

That said, buying amps blind isn't as bad as guitars, in most cases there is alot more consistency.

I think I said this before - I'm pondering a Lucky Seven.

...how would you go about it? mail order direct from fuchs?
Right now, I'll wait to see the outcome of his negotiations with teh 'Canadian Dealer'.

I think you'd have to order from a U.S. dealer. I don't think Fuchs is a direct seller. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Hey David

My offer is still open to try out my ODS30SLX head. You remember me, the guy from that store in Newmarket. Anyways I can't say enough about it. It is a revealing amp but to me it just makes you play better and it does become addicting, tone wise and feel. Lots of versatility from cleans through screaming. Come see me the next time you're in the store or give me a call

Looks like i arrived at the right time!!!!

I work as a tech at one of the L&M stores, and since i am a gear whore, have been following the Fuchs audio thing quite closely....

Yes, L&M will carry Fuchs, but it will mostly be special order.

THe other thing, only 2 stores will ahve i t. Don't know if it can be ordered from others or not yet.

Bloor and North vancouver (i think) thats it. so if you want to try one out, they should be arriving in store this week, but those will be the only 2 locations! Couldn't even get an ODS sent to me to cover the cravings until my ODS50 mod gets in.... :)

Philip Sayce did his new album with the ODS 100 and EVM12L speakers. Fantastic tone!!! Take a look at philipsayce dot com, one of my favorite this year.

Today there were four Fuchs amps in L&M in downtown T.O. Lucky Seven, Black Jack 21, OD Supreme Combo and OD Supreme Head. Just in case anyone felt like trying one out. There is also one Fuchs cab.

I have played Mr. Flowerday's Fuchs I must say it is the most differrent tone that you have to work with. The Fuchs is supposed to be a Dumble in reality but I don't know what a Dumble sound like in the first place. It is not like any other gian amp I have ever played..Maybe if I had the chance to
"live" with it for awhile I could get used to it:)
