Flexibel

In my opinion it´s an amplifier with a wide range of colours. Very good clean, crunch and distorted sounds.

Just Like A Real Amp Cranked Up

With a Strat tuned to concert & some Lexicon 224 Reverb, I couldn’t sonically tell my guitar from Stevie Ray’s.
With humbuckers, sounds like Robben’s Dumble. Astonishing. (My pickups are all custom) Had to dial back quite a bit of the overly beefy low end, but DAMN

That D sound with some Plexi added in!

Great Amp! Lots of wattage, and can be dialed in for a Marshall sound or a Dumble sound.

Great amp emulation for crunch, amazing extras

I own and love the Fender 55. I tried the demo of this one out of boredom one day and was blown away. I hit the buy button one day into my trial. It's a very muscular sound, beefy and throaty. I also really like the under-the-hood stuff. This thing has a great delay unit built in. Really good for slap back echo. The Fender is a one trick pony that does one thing beautifully. The Fuchs is more versatile, but equals the Fender in musicality and fun.

Great Breakup to Crunch Amp Model

This the the UAD plug-in I reach for when I want slight grit to satisfying crunch on guitars. Sounds good and ample range to tweak for good results.

Impressive - Fuchs Train II

In terms of Guitar PlugIns best in Sound what ever I heard.
Very usefull by using the PlugIn as Reamping !

The Sound in generell and the feeling is very realistic.
There is no need of additional PlugIns, eg. Eqs, Compressors etc.

Impressive !

Great For Heavier Styles

The Fuchs Train 2 was exactly what I was looking for. A great meaty sounding guitar amp sim for heavier styles of music. This amp screams with a humbucker loaded guitar.

Great Sounding plugin

I have gone through a few of the amp plugins, and right now I use the Fuchs Train II as a platform for my pedals... I know that a lot people don't like pedals into a interface / plugin, but to my ears it works great with this plugin.

This Amp is the real deal.

Just plug your guitar straight into the HI Z input dial a tone like your using a conventional and unleash your creativity. Can't get enough of this.

Perfect amp for a single coil

Or else :) but the single coils are giving you the best of it. Rich, dynamic, full sound. What a great amp unusual, but intuitive controls with two drives, and the others. Fun, fun, fun.

My current favorite!

I only have the Fender 55, Buxom Betty and the Fuchs Train II. I do use the other two a lot but this one has something about it! Great plug that I hope to write some great riffs with!

Astonishingly good

I had pretty much given up on guitar in a box. I'm new to UAD so demoed several amps, and was underwhelmed by the usual brown/silver/green. I've already got those in various plugins. Loved the Suhr and almost bought it because of the clean punchy headroom for pedals and Unison seems to make a big difference in feel. Then tried this Fuchs and couldn't stop playing it. Every time I adjusted something I wanted to save it as a preset. Crunch without fur balls like a Klon, lots of clean headroom, and tons of channel two gain without sounding like a vacuum cleaner. Can almost feel the speaker moving.

It’s a plug-in, why am I playing differently?

In short, this thing pushes you to dig in and make your fingers change the tone. I find myself really getting after notes and having a lot of fun with it. Confused that there isn’t a single tube involved to make it respond like that.
