OVERVIEW

40-watt hand-wired 1x12 combo for vintage rock tone.

Dave Friedman's Dirty Shirley open-back 1x12" combo was designed for guitarists that want a Vintage Classic Rock tone inspired by British tube amps from the '60s and '70s. It is based on a modified JTM 45 but still delivers the signature high gain tone for which Friedman is best known. The Dirty Shirley is a 40-watt, 5881 powered, single channel amp that will give you that vintage crunch and also clean up nicely by merely backing off the guitar's volume knob. Extremely versatile, it is capable of producing many styles of music from blues to rock and country by just adjusting the gain and master controls.

This handcrafted in the USA combo utilizes tongue-and-groove Baltic Birch construction and houses a 16 ohm, 12" Celestion G12M Creamback speaker that deliver the bass, mid response and signature sound you would expect from a Friedman amplifier.

The Dirty Shirley also features a three-position gain structure switch which lowers the overall gain of the amplifier.

The Dirty Shirley 1x12 combo was designed to take pedal and loves boosts, OD's, phasers, flangers, tremolos and wahs, while the brand new ultra-transparent series effects loop handles your time-based effects pedals and rack units.

Handwired in the USA.

Friedman History:
Dave Friedman is the man behind the signature tones of rock icons Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens and Jerry Cantrell. Dave Friedman has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for many of the world's biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman's innovative designs and meticulous construction have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians while earning him a loyal clientele from all over the world. One of Friedman's mainstays has been modifying amps to each player's specific tonal palette, and to consult with other established amplifier companies to improve their own designs.

Dave Friedman's extensive knowledge and pursuit of tonal superiority inspired him to develop his own series of production amplifiers under the name Friedman Amplification. In the past, having Friedman build or modify your amp required a certain level of notoriety, but now his sonic wizardry is available to everyday players.

Each Friedman amplifier is hand-wired in the U.S.A. using only hand selected components. You can buy with confidence because Friedman Amps are designed and built to last a lifetime.
