Friedman Brown Eye BE-100 · Guitar Amp Head

The Friedman Amplification BE-100 has become known as Dave Friedman's MARSHA and is equipped with a selection of modifications that Dave Friedman has already installed in countless amps over the years. The Friedman Amplification Brown Eye 100 sums up the most popular of these mods in an amp.

The BE 100 has two 2 channels and two different basic channels in the lead channel:

BE (Brown Eye): Basic Crunch / Overdrive. Everything between Classic Rock to VH, with about twice as much gain as a normal 800 or JMP. Provides any kind of plexi sound with the possibility to use more gain.

HBE (Boost) (Hairy Brown Eye / Boost): Adds an extra gain to the signal path of the BE. Lots of gain, without losing the actual character, punch or tightness.

The basic sounds can be called up via the supplied double foot switch or via mini switch on the front panel. In addition, you can still switch on:

VH (Eddie's): This voicing corresponds to Eddie's old Plexi, which Dave Friedman had several times on the workbench.

GainStructure Switch: This switch allows you to reduce the gain of the BE-100 in two steps (from Full Gain to Medium Gain and Low Gain). These modes are foot switchable and apply to both channels.

C45 (Custom 45): Similar to the BE, but with a slightly softer tone and a little more gain. Actually more a different voicing.

SAT (Saturation): Is a diode clipping circuit that adds more 80's metal gain to it. To be used in the BE channel.

FAT: makes the signal slightly thicker, very nice, For singlecoil guitars.

And, last but not least via Footswitch:

CLEAN: Clean channel simple equalizer (bass, treble, and a 3-waybright switch. ) Presence control remains active in this channel, a mixture of Vox and Fender Clean Sounds.

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.
