Pure Brit Rock crunch tones all the way home! That said, this amp excels at so many things. The cleans are a tremendous platform to shape your tone, with what seems like limitless headroom. The overdrive channels hardly need an introduction - it's the equivalent of a Plexi stack combined with a cranked AC30! Furthermore, when you turn down the master, you've still got that same responsive, super-dynamic drive that stays punchy and articulate at low volumes. It *never* gets mushy nor does it sound like digital clipping.
"The Friedman BE100 is a hand-wired, 100-watt, EL34 powered, multi-channel British-style amp. By merely adjusting the gain and master volume controls, the BE100 can produce a variety of tones, seamlessly transitioning from blues to classic rock or hard rock to metal. To say it is British-styled is just the start of describing this inspiring tone machine."
