Friedman Brown Eye BE-100 · Guitar Amp Head
The BE100 is a hand-wired, 100-watt, EL34 powered, multi-channel British style amp that is capable of producing many styles of music from blues to classic rock and from heavy rock to metal by just adjusting the gain and master volume controls. To say it is British styled is just the beginning of describing this inspiring tone machine.
The BE100 is a critically acclaimed amplifier head that was created for the many musicians who have been asking for the Friedman sound in a professional 100 watt format. It can be seen on many superstar stages like Alice in Chains, Pink, Bon Jovi, The Cult, The Foo Fighters and many more. No wonder this amp has received The Editor’s Choice Award from Guitar Player Magazine (Nov, 2013).
Plug into to the BE100 and you will notice instantly, the huge, tight low end and rich harmonically detailed chords at any volume. This is made possible by Friedman’s excellent Master Volume control - so put your attenuator in storage!
Single notes have that Holy Grail singing quality that all guitar players strive to attain but rarely can through most amps. The BE100 cleans up remarkably well with the guitar’s volume control, even with the amp on higher gain settings. To achieve a more dramatic clean, merely switch over to the clean channel, with it’s bass and treble tone shaping controls and 3 way bright switch. All 3 modes (BE, HBE, CLEAN) can be accessed from the amp’s front panel or from the included 2 button footswitch. Start playing through the BE100 and you’ll find it’s very hard to stop!
The BE100 was designed to take pedals very well and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos and wahs, etc. The brand new ultra transparent Series FX loop takes time based FX pedals and rack units equally well.
For many guitarists, the name Dave Friedman does not have the cachet of, say, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens or Jerry Cantrell. Yet without Friedman’s helping hand these players, as well as a host of countless other guitar heroes, wouldn’t sound as amazing as they do onstage and in the studio.
Dave Friedman has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for some of the world’s biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman’s innovative designs have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians and the meticulous construction of his Rack Systems gear has earned him a loyal clientele from all over the world.
One of Friedman’s services has been to modify amps to each player’s specific tonal pallet and to consult for other established amplifier companies with their own designs. Friedman’s extensive experience in this area inspired Dave to develop a brand-new series of production amplifiers under Friedman Amplification. In the past, having Friedman build or mod your amp required a certain level of notoriety, but now his sonic wizardry is available to everyday players.
Each Friedman amplifier is hand wired right here in the U.S.A. using only ultra high grade components. With 25 years of experience in fixing amps, Dave has learned all the pit falls other companies may have over looked, none of which are ina Friedman amp. It is for this reason, Friedman amps are designed and built to last a lifetime.
