Legendary designs and meticulous construction as only Dave Friedman can produce.
Dave Friedman is the man behind the signature tones of rock icons Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens and Jerry Cantrell. Dave has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for many of the world’s biggest stars for the past 25 years. His 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.
Delivering arguably some of the best distortion tones you’ll ever hear, Friedman amps also boast gorgeous cleans with plenty of headroom. Friedman has also dipped their toes into the world of guitar effects with a line of stompboxes that derive from their amp line, offering the same tones and build quality that you’d expect from the man himself.
They have a huge roster of artists including Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi), Joe Bonamassa, Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake), Rob Harris (Jamiroquai), Simon McBride & Pete Thorn.
