Overview

Crushing tone made for the Man in the Box.

The undeniably crushing sound of Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell has sent countless guitar players on a quest to achieve his signature tone. Dave Friedman has captured lightning in a bottle in the form of the Friedman JJ-100, a collaboration between Friedman and Jerry Cantrell.

The JJ-100 is a 100-watt, two channel, EL34 powered beast that takes no prisoners. Saturated, complex, harmonic overtones create a tight response to assure no notes are lost over the full spectrum. These features are paired with AC30-like cleans and an ultra dynamic response to right hand attack, beautifully recreating Cantrell's iconic Seattle sound.

Jerry Cantrell and Dave Friedman spent years perfecting the JJ-100. This is Cantrell's first ever signature amp, so he went to the best. The hand-crafted in USA head utilizes tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction and is built to withstand the rigors of the road. If you are looking for a heavy-hitting powerhouse, plug into the Friedman JJ-100W.

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.
