Dave Friedman is one of the most well known amp modders and designers in the L.A. music scene for the past 20 years.
Dave has been designing & building guitar rigs for the stars since the early nineties & has now brought his talent to you with the extraordinary Friedman line of guitar amplification!
The Dirty Shirley is a 40-watt, 5881 powered single channel Classic Rock Amp designed by Dave Friedman based on a modified JTM 45 for players that seek that more Vintage, Classic Rock tone inspired by British Tube Amps from the 60’s and 70’s. The Dirty Shirley is also capable of producing many styles of music from blues to classic rock and Country by just adjusting the gain and master controls.
The Dirty Shirley is an incredibly versatile single channel amp with 2 X 5881 Power Tubes, 3 x 12ax7 Preamp Tubes and 1 x 5AR4 Rectifier Tube. Master volume, Gain controls and full EQ with Presence, Bass, Middle & Treble allow endless tonal options & settings.
The Dirty Shirley takes pedals very well and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos, wahs, etc. The SmallBox also has an ultra-transparent series FX loop that takes time based FX pedals & rack units equally well.
Make no mistake, the Dirty Shirley is ALL Friedman and possesses the Friedman sound we all know & love with tight bottom end, rich harmonically detailed chords and single notes!
