Fuchs FBS-700 WW-Style Bass Amplifier Head (700 Watts)

Choose from a host of bass tones from warm clean, to high gain, and overdrive! Fuchs' FBS-700 WW is inspired by classic Walter Woods bass amplifiers.

Much like Fuchs' original ODS amps were initially inspired by the legendary Dumble amps, Fuchs' FBS-1 bass amps have found their inspiration from the iconic Walter Woods bass amps, but with Andy's own enhancements.

Andy tapped his years of experience as a working musician, as well as servicing and tweaking guitar and bass amps for many famous clients as diverse as Carlos Santana through jammers like Jimmy Herring, including jazz legends like Dave Stryker for over 40 years as inspiration for their bass amps. Fuchs' 20-year list of reviews and endorsers is truly impressive to say the least.

Features:

- High gain Walter Woods inspired preamp allows both clean and overdriven tones
- Ultrafast op-amps and regulated power supply in preamp
- Sharp slope 20-hz subsonic filter controls speaker excursion and wasted wattage
- Active classic bass and treble Baxandall tone stack tuned to key bass frequencies
- Continuously variable midrange boost or cut of up to 15 dB +/-
- ICE module power amp for solid, dynamic and reliable power down to 4-ohms
- Automatic AC universal voltage selection (unit works world wide without switches or modification)
- Electronically balanced front mounted DI output pre/post, phase switch, ground lift.
- Fan cooled solid welded steel powder coated chassis.
- High quality Cliff and Neutrik connectors used throughout.

Not unlike the iconic Walter Woods amps the FBS-300 and FBS-700 amps are designed for maximum power at minimal size and weight. For read more years, the rare and coveted Woods amps have built a following amongst industry professionals. They were literally the first switch mode class-D style lightweight bass amps ever. Due to Walter being reclusive and now retired, these amps found their way to Andy's shop to be repaired. While servicing them Andy was able to reverse engineer the preamp and power supply. Mated to a modern lightweight ICE power digital power module we have produced an amp that Woods owners agree, is equal (if not better) than their predecessors.

The FBS-1 bass amps (and the Fuchs FBT tube bass amps) share identical panels and chassis and are available in 300 and 700 watt models, they feature a solid state preamp inspired by the infamous Walter Woods amps, but with improvements like a steep-slope subsonic filter and a DI output using high speed audiophile op amps and a regulated power supply. The DI output is electrically balanced pre/post switch, ground lift, DI Phase, and a global mute switch.

Small and light, (downright diminutive) at less than 5-lbs and 12 x 3 x 9, they are loud and clean. Want some dirt? Raise the input gain and lower the master volume. Want total clean, lower the input gain and raise the master. They are super easy to operate, and the FBS-1 amps will easily fit in a gig bag, run ice-cold, and feature a well thought out, simple configuration for the working musician. A Fuchs gig bag designed for all models is coming soon.

These amps feature an input gain control allowing both passive and active bass use, Baxandall high and low controls, a parametric rotary midrange control with level and frequency control and an output master volume. With the midrange pot in the '0' position the circuit is flat. In this mode the bass and treble pots emulate the classic Woods and B-15 style amps we know and love. Use the mid circuit for boost and cut of up to 20 db at a fully adjustable frequency.

All models use the industry-standard ICE power modules, which are known for their rock-solid reliability and excellent cool-running, audio performance. These amps feature a buffered patch loop between the preamp and power amp. All amps offer worldwide automatic line voltage selection. Wherever you are, they automatically set their own line voltage. All amps are CE and RoHs compliant.
