The Friedman Runt 50 is a 50-watt all tube head that delivers legendary Friedman tone in a versatile 2-channel amp. The Runt-50 power section is driven by two EL-34s, with four 12AX7s in the preamp. The American-inspired clean channel features volume, bass, treble, and a three-position bright switch that delivers tones ranging from sparkling and pristine to more of a pushed clean break-up that is great for blues and country tone.
The heart and soul of the Friedman Runt-50 is its overdrive channel, which will deliver the goods for anything from classic rock to all-out assault. Use the Boost switch and Gain knob to dial in the perfect amount of overdrive and distortion. A global presence control shapes the high-frequency response of the power section.
By utilizing custom transformers and the cleanest possible signal path, Friedman Amps’ Runt 50 head delivers a tight bottom end and midrange that is typically only found in much higher-wattage amps. This 2-channel, 50 watt tube guitar amplifier head is an ideal choice for many styles of music from blues to classic rock and heavy metal. Merely adjusting the gain and master controls will provide a huge range of tonal options.
At first strum, the Runt is instantly recognizable as a Friedman product by its harmonically rich, detailed chords and resonating single note lines. This amp cleans up exceptionally well when you back off the guitar’s volume knob, even with the amp on higher gain settings.
The Runt is also the first amp Dave Friedman has ever made with a cab-simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer-based IRs, Dave achieved a direct output you can proudly send to front of house or use in the studio. The XLR output includes a ground-lift, level, and center/edge of speaker cone simulation switches.
This Runt was also designed to take pedals well! It loves Boost pedals, Overdrive, Phasers, Flangers, Tremolo pedals and Wahs. The ultra-transparent no tone loss, buffered, series effects loop takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. The head cabinet features beautiful black Tolex, with Baltic birch construction, and is built to withstand the rigors of the road.
