Friedman Amps BE-100 Head

Full Clean Channel

Brown Eye / Hairy Brown Eye gain stages

100 watts of hot-modded Marshall tone

The Friedman Amps Brown Eye (formerly known as the Marsha) is THE ultimate modded Marshall style 50/100 watt tube guitar amplifier head. Legendary amp guru David Friedman (Rack Systems Ltd.) created this fine piece of sonic machinery around the EL34 based Marshall Plexi platform using custom transformers and his renowned Brown Eye and Hairy Brown Eye voicing modifications. This British voiced, brown sounding beast of a tone machine has already found its way into the arsenals of many top studio and touring artists- Now it can be yours!

The Friedman BE100 “The Brown Eye” is a culmination of the experience Dave Friedman has accumulated from years of modifying Marshall amps owned by some of the world’s most famous and respected guitarists. The Brown Eye is revered for its incredible girth, punch and sustain. Tamed is the harshness predominant with many stock Marshall-style amps and the BE100 is incredibly responsive to your guitar’s volume pot making it one of the most incredibly dynamic and fun to play tube guitar amplifiers around! Bottom end is tight and focused and The Brown Eye also SOUNDS GREAT AT ANY VOLUME level thanks to an awesome Master Volume control- So don’t be put off by the 100 watt power rating.

This is the newest version- Fully loaded and footswitchable with a Full Clean Channel EQ and 3-way bright switch, Overdrive Channel with full EQ- Brown Eye and Hairy Brown Eye gain settings.
