Dave Friedman is the man behind some of the most impressive tones in rock 'n' roll and has been for over 25 years. Throughout that time, luminary players such as Jerry Cantrell and Eddie Van Halen have been relying on Friedman's amplifier modifications, repairs, and builds to keep them sounding at the top of their game.
