Friedman has taken the tube amp market by storm on a worldwise basis. The instant players plug into a Friedman amp there is something familiar - but there's more - that special something that makes them want to keep playing - and then own one, regardless of cost.
In reality, an amp is just a set of parts - capacitors, resistors, wire, transformers, potentiometers and switches etc... Individually, none of these components deliver the "Secret Sauce" that makes a Friedman amp a Friedman. The secret sauce is, in fact, simply a series of choices made by Dave Friedman, using his trained ears, 20-plus years of experience working on amplifiers and the highest level of craftsmanship. Which parts? What value? Used where? Connected how? In which configuration? Their answers, and Dave's painstaking attention to every nuance is what delivers the tone players seek. This high standard is the reason Dave himself bench tests, plays and signs EVERY amp before it leaves the shop.
So why discuss amplifiers in a guitar sales sheet? Because it is the same relentless perseverance that makes Friedman guitars so special. Many people know Dave's history of working on amplifiers and building rigs for rock's elite players. What most people don't know is that Dave's passion and knowledge of guitars is just as deep. Dave has been consulting for and advising guitar companies in the background for years.
This wealth of knowledge is infused into the new Vintage Collection. Just like every Friedman amp, in their raw state, Friedman guitars are just wood, frets, tuners and pickups etc... The "Secret Sauce" is all of the subtle choices Dave made, then brought to life by legendary guitar builder, Grover Jackson.
Plug into a Vintage T or S and you will be inspired to play and keep playing. A carefully seasoned mixture of the familiar and that which is new.
