The Friedman BE50 Deluxe Head

By combining the tonal pallets of his BE and HBE circuits, as well as the sparkling cleans of the Buxom Betty into the all new BE-50 Deluxe head, Dave Friedman is unleashing his most flexible design yet. And thanks to a handful of Friedman’s most requested mods, this 3-channel head is chocked full of tone-shaping possibilities and power.

With three channels of Friedman's most popular circuits, he has proclaimed the BE-50 Deluxe all-tube head as “The best amp I’ve ever made.”

• Footswitchable BE and HBE channels

• Independent volume and gain for each channel

• 3-position voice switch dictates the top-end response of the dirty channels

• Fat switch adds low-end girth and warmth

• 3-way gain structure switch determines the channels’ overall gain

The clean channel of the Friedman BE-50 Deluxe is directly inspired by the chime and full body of the Buxom Betty amp. Not only does it have massive headroom and detail, but it brings out the very best in your favorite pedals and effects as well. 

Thanks to an astoundingly flexible power section, the BE-50 Deluxe will be your go-to amp on any gig. From the front panel, you’re able to tune the amp’s overall character with a trio of variable controls. Turn the amp around and you’ll find a half-power switch as well as the most transparent effects loop in the business. 

• Presence knob attenuates high frequencies in the amp’s power section

• Thump adds or removes low-end rumble 

• Response control allows you to determine the amp’s feel

• Transparent series effects loop with bypass switch always maintains your core tone

• Power toggle selects between 50-watt pentode operation and 25-watt triode mode

• Every unit is inspected and tested by Dave before shipping
