USED Friedman Amps Dirty Shirley DS-40 Head and 1x12 Cabinet
Friedman Amps Dirty Shirley DS-40 Stack - USED
40 Watt Head and 1x12 Cabinet
Killer Tube Guitar Amplier!
Hot Rod Marshall-style Tones!
Used! Just in on trade from one of our regular clients. The Dirty Shirley is an incredible all tube guitar amplifier from Dave Friedman. Designed specifically for fat sounding classic rock, the 40 watt Dirty Shirley puts vintage crunch similar to Led Zeppelin, ZZ top and Van Halen to a beautiful shimmering clean right at your fingertips. It comes standard with a series FX loop.
The Dirty Shirley 40 watt tube guitar amplifier is based on a modified Marshall JTM 45 platform but features all that incredible, high gain tone Friedman amplifiers are known for. When fully cranked there is about as much on take as you get from the Brown Eye - another great Friedman amp. Although the Dirty Shirley head is a single channel amplifier, it is a versatile and dynamic amp and will clean up nicely if you back off your guitar's volume control. The Dirty Shirley features 40 watts of power from a pair of 5881 / 6L6 power tubes and it uses a GZ34 / 5AR4 rectifier.
To dial in great tone it's recommended to start with the following settings: Use low input with the Bass maxed, Treble & Presence at Noon, Mid at about 2:00, Master at 10:00 and Gain at 2:00. This will give you that Big- fat Zep tone. From there just crank the gain to see what’s available. Then switch to high-gain input and tweak to taste. For a big, open Crunch Tone or a nice Clean, just lower your guitar volume. The Dirty Shirley is so dynamic there is no need for a second channel.
This particular half stack is just in on trade from one of our regular clients. The Dirty Shirley Head and 1x12 Friedman guitar speaker cabinet are both included. Immaculate condition. No serious issues, damage, repairs or modifications. Comes in the original boxes with manual. Sold as-is. Like all our used / vintage gear this has been tested for functionality and priced to move. What you see is what you get.
