The Friedman BE-100 Deluxe 100W tube amp delivers the tone and features that have made Friedman Amplification a leader in high-gain tube technology. With a monstrous 100 watts of all-tube power and a comprehensive set of controls, the BE-100 Deluxe places a vast range of tones at your fingertips for crafting your signature sound.

High-Gain Preamp Section With Expansive Tone Control

The BE-100 Deluxe features a high-gain preamp with an EQ section that provides a wide range of tone-shaping options. Treble, Middle and Bass controls are joined by Presence and Resonance knobs to adjust high- and low-frequency response. A 3-band active graphic EQ allows for additional fine-tuning. Whether you're after a tight, cutting lead tone or a thick, saturated rhythm sound, the BE-100 Deluxe delivers.

Flexible Power Section for Optimal Speaker Load

At its core, the BE-100 Deluxe utilizes four EL34 power tubes to generate 100 watts of tube power. The power section includes Half Power and Mute switches to scale back the volume when needed. Impedance options include 4, 8, and 16 ohms to match any speaker cabinet. This flexibility makes it easy to get the most out of your preferred speakers.

Additional Features for Performance Ready

A host of additional features make the BE-100 Deluxe ideal for any stage or studio performance. Channel switching between Clean and Overdrive channels can be done via the included footswitch or front panel controls. Bright and FAT voicing switches provide even more tonal options for each channel. Effects loops in series and parallel configurations offer flexibility when using time-based effects. The included noise gate and line out allow for quiet practice sessions and direct recording. With the BE-100 Deluxe, Friedman brings their signature high-gain tone and versatility to the modern guitarist.
