Friedman Runt 50 Head
The Friedman Runt 50 Head
The Runt-50 is a 50-watt all tube, 2-channel amp. The Runt-50's power section is driven by two EL-34s and utilizes four 12AX7s in the preamp section. The American-inspired clean channel features volume, bass, treble, and a three-position bright switch that delivers anything from pristine cleans to slightly broken up blues and country tones. The overdrive channel will take 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 50 delivers the tight bottom end and midrange by utilizing custom transformers and the cleanest signal path possible. The Runt is 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 the harmonically rich detailed chords. This amp 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 a cab-simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer-based IRs, Dave achieved a direct output you can proudly send to front of house or use in the studio. The XLR output includes a ground-lift, level, and center/edge of speaker cone simulation switches.
