Fuchs Audio Technology has launched the Mantis 89, a two-channel all-tube head voiced after classic Marshall amps. The ‘89’ refers to the two Marshall heads this amp follows in the footsteps of – the JCM 800 and the JCM 900.
The amp itself is available in two configurations, 20 or 50 watts. The 20-watt version has a 6V6 power amp stage while the 50-watt version has an EL34 power amp section.
Both the 20 and 50-watt versions sport the same controls. Controlling both channels is a 3-band EQ, master presence and master gain boost. There’s also separate gain and master volume controls for each of the two channels.
The Mantis 89 comes in a classic finish, just as evocative of its partial namesake as its tone. It’s also compatible with 4, 8 and 16-ohm cabinets.
The 20-watt version lists for $1650, while the 50-watt version lists for $1850. Find out more over at fuchsaudiotechnology.com.
