Friedman Runt 20 Head
The Friedman Runt 20 Head
The Runt-20 is a 20-watt all tube, compact 2-channel amp. The clean channel features a single volume knob and a 3-position bright switch that delivers anything from pristine cleans to slightly broken-up tones. The overdrive channel takes you from classic rock to all-out assault! Use the Boost switch and Gain knob to dial in the perfect amount of overdrive.
The Runt 20 delivers the tight bottom end and midrange that is typically only found in higher-wattage amps by utilizing custom transformers and the cleanest signal path possible. This makes the Runt ideal for many styles of music from blues to classic rock and heavy metal by merely adjusting the gain and master controls.
Plugging into the Runt, you will instantly notice harmonically rich chords and resonating single note lines. Each Runt cleans up exceptionally well with the guitar’s volume knob, even with the amp on higher gain settings.
This is the first amp Dave Friedman has ever made with an internal load and cab-simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer-based IRs, Dave achieved a direct output that you can proudly send to front of house or use in the studio. The Runt also allows you to play "silently," meaning you can safely play the amp WITHOUT having a speaker cabinet connected. The XLR output includes a ground-lift, level, and center/edge of speaker cone simulation switches.
