Here's some additional thoughts on the HRM... I like the clean voicing a lot and I might love the distorted tones if I didn't have to crawl through a little box to tweak 'em. I had that blue amp converted from the classic voicing to the HRM and while there were some things I liked about the HRM, I regret having it changed to the HRM because the original tone of that amp was incredible. So if you're considering having an original Fuchs changed to HRM, I wouldn't recommend it.

If you want the HRM, buy an HRM amp and then live with it along side your classic amp. The only problem with that is you'll probably want both of 'em. My only knock on the HRM is the tweaking through the little compartment but it's different from the original voicing and I can't say that it's better or worse. Just different. If it looks the amp is difficult to work on, it's because it is and I wanted to demonstrate that point in the video.

Looking to order an amp? Contact us at Michael (at) RadicalTone.com or through Facebook.com/RadicalTone. This is a detailed explanation and demonstration of the Fuchs ODS HRM (HT -- hand tuned version) by Michael Lewis using one of his MLG Pro 35T semi-hollow body guitars.

The amp is being played through a Fuchs 212 cabinet with a combination of a Celestion Classic Lead 80 and a Celestion G12H30 (miced) speaker. A room mic was also mixed in to give more of the overall tonality of the amplifier then what you'd simply hear from a close mic. We made every effort to keep the post processing to a minimum so that you could get a feel for the raw tone of the amplifier.

It should be noted that while MIchael goes into great detail about the versatility of the amplifier, he failed to demonstrate the sounds you can get by switching the Bright, Deep and EQ 1 / EQ 2 switches which effect both the clean and overdrive channels.
