Fuchs Audio Technology is proud to announce the “Bruiser Jr” © as a new addition to their Casino Series of amplifiers. With a preamp modeled after the original Plush Bruiser bass amp from the 70’s, the “Bruiser Jr.” © features an all tube 4-stage preamp with 5 simple to operate tone controls and two tone expanding pull pots for enormous tone shaping without the need for complex multi-band equalizers. The tone controls feature vintage baxandall style passive bass and treble controls, enhanced by an active midrange control, as well as low and high frequency ‘expander’ controls which add to the boost and cut range at the frequency extremes. In addition to an input gain control, an output master volume allows controlled overdrive for players wanting mild or severely distorted bass tones. Pull controls for low and high boost add additional flexibility to the already wide range of EQ available. The amp features an active balanced DI output with front panel level control and pre or post EQ selection. The amp features an active subsonic filter circuit which drives the Class-D switch mode power amp producing 500 watts into 4 ohms. Front panel mute and power switches are provided as is a light up logo. A traditional transformer power supply runs the entire amp which has DC preamp tube filaments, a 45 second turn-on mute and cool operation not requiring a fan. It has one input, two ¼” speaker outputs, a buffered TRS series effects loop allows for external equalizers or effects at line level. It weighs 25 lbs and a rack mount kit will be available in the future. $ 2,195.00 MAP.
