Fuchs Frost-100 Amp

  • Single Channel Fuchs Frost 100 Amp
  • Double Channel

The Fuchs Frost™ has been described as a JCM800 Marshall on steroids. Available in single or dual channel models, the Frost™ was designed in cooperation with metal guitarist Jack Frost. The amp is very punchy. It has a strong power section, a lot of headroom and can be driven hard to become quite loud without going to pieces and becoming mushy on the low end.

The dual channel FROST-100-2 features a separate low and high channel. Each channel features separate preamp and master volumes as well as high, mid and low tone controls. Channel switching is available via a front panel full switch, or using a remote foot switch. Channel switching is accomplished through the use of sealed low noise relays. Despite the enormous amounts of gain available, the channel switching is virtually silent at all volumes. Front panel mounted LED's show the channel in use from any distance.

Frost-100™ Features

The single channel FROST-100-1 and its two-channel companion the FROST-100-2 are built entirely in the USA with the same dedication to tone and reliability as all Fuchs® products. The FROST-100 amplifiers are designed to deliver over 100 watts of rock and roll attitude. Andy called upon his over 35 years of experience as a musician, service technician and modifier, and designer, to make these amplifiers the truest representation of his ideal rock amplifier.

Fuchs Frost 100 AmpDesigned and tuned by Andy Fuchs in cooperation with metal guitarist, Jack Frost (Seven Witches, Savatage, Bronx Casket Company) the FROST-100-1 has a simple yet effective feature set to the classic English JCM-800 style amplifier format. It features low and high gain inputs which provide a mild smoother distortion on the low gain input, and responsive high gain metal tones on the high gain input. An input pre-gain and output master volume provide additional control over the quantity and volume of overdrive. Classic passive tone controls for high, mid and low, and a presence control in the feedback loop of the power amp tailors high end response. A simple all tube effects loop features send and return jacks, a true bypass switch, as well as -20 or 0 db level for pedal or rack level effects. The power amp has 4, 8, and 16 ohm outputs to match any cabinet configuration. The 100% tube signal path uses no solid state devices in the signal path.

Internally, the amplifier features our standard configuration of overbuilt military grade PC boards and hand wiring. All tubes are chassis mounted; a quiet DC fan keeps the chassis temperatures low no matter how long or how loud you play. Like all Fuchs® products, the preamp tubes feature DC filaments for the lowest possible noise. A high energy power supply provides a solid low end and impact, up to full output clipping. All power supplies feature distributed audiophile style banked and bypassed filter capacitors. By using groups of smaller capacitors instead of a single larger capacitor, it allows the amplifier to react quicker to transients and provide an extended high end and sustain. The chassis is 16 gauge T-6 aircraft grade anodized aluminum, for the best tone and strength. Our power and output transformers and chokes are custom wound and oversized. The output stage is designed for reliability into most any load including use with attenuators.

The dual channel FROST-100-2 features a separate low and high channel. Each channel features separate preamp and master volumes as well as high, mid and low tone controls. Channel switching is available via a front panel full switch, or using a remote foot switch. Channel switching is accomplished through the use of sealed low noise relays.
