Friedman BE‑100

Friedman BE‑100


The variety of tones, seamlessly transitioning from Blues to Classic Rock or Hard Rock to Metal.

For over 20 years, Dave Friedman has been a gear guru to the stars, designing rigs and modifying amplifiers for the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Jerry Cantrell, Guns N’ Roses and more. When Friedman began building his own amps, he gleaned inspiration from high-powered British tone machines of yesteryear that have become the defacto sound of rock.

Developed by Brainworx, the Friedman Amps Plug-In Collection for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces features two stunning emulations of Friedman’s high-end, boutique masterpieces, each with its own take on god-like British tube tone — the BE-100 for the ultimate “hot-rodded” Plexi-style amp, and the Dirty Shirley DS-40 for dynamic clean tones and powerful, punchy crunch.
