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.

The BE100 is a critically acclaimed amplifier created for the many musicians who have longed for the Friedman sound in a 100-watt format, as seen on the stages of superstars like Alice in Chains, Pink, Bon Jovi, The Cult, and Foo Fighters.

Plug into to the BE100 and you will instantly notice the huge, tight low-end and rich harmonically detailed chords at any volume, made possible by Friedman's superior
Master Volume control.

Single notes take on that Holy Grail singing quality all guitarists strive to attain but rarely can through most amps. The BE100 cleans up remarkably well with the guitar's volume control, even with the amp on higher gain settings. For a more dramatic clean sound, switch over to the clean channel and dial in the bass, treble and three-way bright switch tone-shaping controls.

All three modes (BE, HBE, CLEAN) can be accessed from the amp's front panel or from the included two-button footswitch. The BE100 was designed to take pedals and loves boosts, ODs, phasers, flangers, tremolos and wahs, while the brand new ultra-transparent series effects loop handles your time-based effects pedals and rack units.
Play through the BE100 and you'll see why this amp has received the prestigious Editor's Pick Award from Guitar Player Magazine (Nov, 2013).

Handwired in the USA.

    I only tried this amp twice for a short time. I knew it instantly! perfection! My balls ache that I don't own it. It hurts me. Inside. This amp just kicks every kind of buttocks. This is the sonic golden age. Right this second. This amp is proof. Does it get better? IDK and I don't care. I know where my amp money is going.

      Comments about Friedman Brown Eye 100W 2-Channel Tube Guitar Head:

      I tried this amp in Las Vegas Guitar Center. They had another boutique amp and the salesman asked, "Have you tried the Friedman?" I plugged in and lost my mind. It sounded pure bliss. Like the best Marshall I ever heard with a great Fender clean channel. As much as I dug it, the price tag scared me some. I still remember thinking, "I need one of these."

      I'm a big fan of 50 watt heads, but after playing the Small Box 50, there is no comparison. You have to pay the extra and get the BE100.

      Several months later, I was at the San Marcos, CA Guitar Center and I ran into another BE 100. I played it again, went home and picked some gear to sell and within a week or so, I had my own. This summer will be two years together and I have no regrets. It is still the best amp I've ever owned, and there have been a lot of others. Fortunately, I've re-joined another band. I can't wait to use this sweet baby live.
