Friedman Small Box 50 watt head
Friedman Amps Small Box head
50 watt Tube Guitar Amplifier!
Modded Marshall-style Overdrive tones!
2 channels! Classic Plexi through Modern High-Gain Distortion
From classic Plexi “bark” to Brown sounding British overdrive, the Small Box 50 head from Friedman Amps is an all tube guitar amplifier that is loaded with incredible tone! It was designed from the ground up specifically for guitarists that want the classic tones reminiscent of great vintage Plexi Marshalls as well as Friedman’s more modern high gain offerings. Two foot-switchable channels each have their own separate Gain and Volume controls. Channel 1 has a more classic British Plexi voice with plenty of crunch and growl. The second channel expands on that with the signature Friedman high-gain distortion we all know and love. The Small Box 50 head is dynamic and responsive- No matter where you have the controls set, it cleans up remarkably well when you back off the guitar volume control. This is a lot of amp in a 50-watt package.
If pedals are your thing, the Small Box 50 head is the perfect platform. This all tube guitar amp loves boosts, overdrives, phasers, flangers, tremolos, wahs, etc. The ultra-transparent series effects loop takes time-based FX pedals and rack units equally well. Like all Friedman Amps, the SmallBox head is handcrafted in the USA with tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction. Built to withstand the rigors of the road and meticulously covered in Tolex.
