Friedman Amps SS-100 Steve Stevens Signature Head

100 watt tube guitar amplifier!

Hand-signed by Steve Stevens!

2 full channels plus boost!

Make'n Music is extremely happy to have this killer amp for sale at a great price! The new Steve Stevens Signature Model head from Friedman Amps is based on the famed BE-100 Brown Eye head but tweaked with additional features. It's versatile enough to cover all styles of music- From high-gain overdrive and distortion to pristine crystal cleans, this 100 watt tube guitar amplifier can do it all. The gain channel is so dynamic on its own that even on higher gain settings, if you just roll back on your guitars’ volume control, it cleans up great. The independent clean channel has a full EQ and 3-position bright switch as well. As the Brown Eye is one of our absolute favorite amps around these days, we were skeptical that we might like anything better. The new Steve Stevens head puts that skepticism right in the trash.

After years of modding or working on custom amps for guitarist like Eddie Van Halen and Jerry Cantrell – among countless others – The Steve Stevens head is Dave Friedman’s first official signature model amplifier, and it is a whopper of an amp! The SS-100 was created to the exacting tonal demands of guitarist extraordinaire, Steve Stevens and it is a 100-watt EL34 powered, two channel plus BOOST, high gain tone machine that is capable of producing many styles of music from blues to classic rock and from heavy rock to metal by simply adjusting the gain and master controls. Likewise the bell-like clean channel is great for a whole palette of additional styles. Whether you live in Nashville or L.A., New York, Chicago, or anywhere in between (no matter which direction around the globe you travel), the Steve Stevens signature head is an amp that will work for you!

Don’t be afraid of the 100 watt rating. This amp was designed to work as well in the studio as it does on tour. That means whether you are playing a small club gig or in your basement with the kids asleep upstairs, the tone will be perfect. One of the first things you will notice is the tight bottom end and rich, harmonically detailed chords and single notes.

The SS-100 takes pedals extremely well too. Whether you have a boost, fuzz, overdrive or wah wah pedal up front for color, or modulation effects like phasers, flangers, tremolos, delays, reverbs running through the loop- your tone will be spot on!  The SS100 has an ultra-transparent series FX loop that takes time based FX pedals and rack units equally well.
