Overview

The Friedman BE-50 Deluxe features three channels, half-power function, and made-in-the-USA bulletproof build quality.

Dave Friedman has worked on the amplifiers of the most influential players of the past 40 years, and the BE-50 Deluxe is a culmination of his decades of knowledge. The BE50 Deluxe combines the clean channel of the Buxom Betty amplifier with 2 separate gain channels - BE (Gain 1) & HBE (Gain 2) - all of which can be selected from the included 2-Button Footswitch.

The 2 gain channels feature a 3-way Gain Structure switch, Saturation, and 3-way Voice controls to enable endless variations on glorious distortion tones - and additional master controls for Thump, Response, and Presence offer more ways to custom tailor your tone. A Series FX Loop (with a Return Level control) and half-power switch (pentode/triode) further add to the amazing features on this amp. On top of the two great overdrive channels is a simple and amazing sounding clean channel - which truly puts pristine clean tones at your disposal.

The BE-50 Deluxe boasts two dirty channels - one with the BE gain structure, and the second with the extra gain of the HBE. Both these channels share the same 3-band EQ section, and also have independent controls for Gain and Master. Separate 3-way switches for Voice and Gain allow extra overdrive tweaking - while the Fat switch is a great addition to add meat to all your single-coil guitars, and a Thump knob controls low-frequency resonance. And if you still need more gain, compression, and saturation, the SAT switch is ready and willing. A Full/Half Power switch selects pentode/triode operation for further versatility for any sized stage or recording situation.
