Overview

The Runt-50 is a versatile 50-watt 1x12 combo that delivers Friedman's legendary tone from a versatile 2 channel amp. The Runt-50 power section is driven by two EL34s and the preamp features four 12AX7s. The American inspired clean channel features volume, bass, treble and a three position bright switch that delivers singing cleans to slightly broken up tone. The heart and soul of the Runt-50 is the overdrive channel, which 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. A global presence control shapes the high frequency response of the Runt-50.

Utilizing custom transformers and the cleanest signal path possible, the Runt-50 delivers tight bottom end and articulate midrange. The Runt-50 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-50, you will instantly notice the harmonically rich detailed chords and resonating single note lines. 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 ever made with a cab simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer based IRs, Dave achieved a record 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.

The Runt-50 combo houses the responsive and articulate 12" Celestion G12 V-Type speaker, which delivers classic British tone with a warm body and distinctive growl. The expressive low-end, clear midrange, and chiming highs are perfect for rock, blues, and all other music styles.

This Runt was designed to take pedals well and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos and wahs. The ultra transparent series effects loop takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. The head cabinet features beautiful black tolex, Baltic Birch construction and built to withstand the rigors of the road.


Friedman History:
Dave Friedman is the man behind the signature tones of rock icons Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens and Jerry Cantrell. Dave Friedman has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for many of the world’s biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman’s innovative designs and meticulous construction have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians while earning him a loyal clientele from all over the world. One of Friedman’s mainstays has been modifying amps to each player’s specific tonal palette, and to consult with other established amplifier companies to improve their own designs.

Dave Friedman’s extensive knowledge and pursuit of tonal superiority inspired him to develop his own series of production amplifiers under the name Friedman Amplification. In the past, having Friedman build or modify your amp required a certain level of notoriety, but now his sonic wizardry is available to everyday players.
