A perfect complement for blues rock guitarists.
The Friedman Dirty Shirley 1x12EXT is a 1x12”, open back extension cabinet, utilizing tung-and-groove Baltic Birch construction and delivers the bass, mid response and great sound you would expect from a 4x12” cab.
At the heart of the cab is a Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 16 Ohm speaker. The G12M Greenback is perhaps the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. Developed in the mid-sixties, it was quickly adopted by players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page, who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock playing styles that came to characterize that era. The G12M-65 Creamback used in the Dirty Shirley cab produces the familiar woody G12M tone, but handles greater power making it ideally suited for yesterday’s and today's amps, when a vintage and modern tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it low-end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper-mids and sweet, refined highs.
As with all Friedman cabinets, oversized 12-gauge speaker wire is soldered between the speaker and terminal, assuring you to get every ounce of valuable tone. This compact little monster not only excels in the studio, but also is the perfect compliment for any stereo or wet dry wet rig. The Dirty Shirley 1x12EXT is handcrafted with pride in the USA and designed to withstand the rigors of the road.
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 handwired right here in the USA using only ultra high-grade components. With 25 years of experience in fixing amps, Dave has learned all the pitfalls other companies may have overlooked, none of which are in a Friedman amp. It is for this reason Friedman amps are designed and built to last a lifetime.
