Friedman BE-50 Deluxe Guitar Amp Head

By combining the evolutional tonal pallet of his BE and HBE circuits, as well as the chiming cleans of the Buxom Beauty in his BE-50 Deluxe all-tube amplifier head, Dave Friedman is unleashing his most flexible design yet. And thanks to a handful of Friedman's most requested mods, this 3-channel head is chock full of tone-shaping possibilities and power.

Friedman tube amps are the best of the best. Yet, with three channels representing his most popular circuits and effortless tone sculpting, all while retaining unmatched touch-sensitive purity, Dave Friedman has proclaimed the BE-50 Deluxe 50-watt all-tube head, "The best amp I've ever made."

- BE and HBE overdrive channels
Housed in the BE-50 Deluxe, Friedman's BE and HBE drive channels are industry standards for high-gain crunch, clarity, and nuance. And with independent volume and gain controls, as well as some of Friedman's most popular amp modifications, you'll be switching between these worlds of grit, on the fly.

- Footswitchable BE and HBE channels
- Independent volume and gain for each channel
- 3-position voice switch dictates the top-end response of the dirty channels
- Fat switch adds low-end girth and warmth
- 3-way gain structure switch determines the channels' overall gain

- Buxom Beauty-like cleans
The clean channel of the Friedman BE-50 Deluxe is directly inspired by the the chime, glassy top end, and full body of the Friedman Buxom Beauty amplifier. Not only does it sing with massive headroom and detail, but it brings out the very best in your favorite pedals and effects as well.

- Opulent clean tones, inspired by the Friedman Buxom Beauty
- 3-band EQ to shape your clean tone
- 3-position bright switch tailors the sheen of your sound

- Flexible master section
Thanks to an astoundingly flexible power section, the BE-50 Deluxe will be your go-to amp on any gig. From the front panel, you're able to tune the amp's overall character with a trio of variable master controls. Turn the amp around and you'll find a half-power switch as well as the most transparent effects loop in the business.

- Presence knob attenuates high frequencies in the amp's power section
- Thump adds or removes low-end rumble
- Response control allows you to determine the amp's feel
- Transparent series effects loop with bypass switch always maintains your core tone
- Power toggle selects between 50-watt pentode operation and 25-watt triode mode

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WOW"
Overall: So I canceled my dream guitar for this amp and let me just say Dave Friedman knows what the &&&$*#%# he’s doing. This amp can do it all. It’s all of his amps in one, and to me that’s crazy! Now don’t be afraid of the knobs and switches it’s super easy and you will get use to it. Just set them and leave them and enjoy the good tones. The clean is by far the best clean tone I have ever heard in my life. BE you can get plexie-hard rock n roll-metalHBE you can do all above plus shred shred and shred!The sat and gain structure switch on the amp are a great feature! Also this amp takes pedals extremely well!!Rated it low on value because it’s 3.5k but you can’t get these tones from a 500 dollar Marshall!
