Friedman Buxom Betty Head


Categories: ,


A lot of players are looking strictly for a crisp Fender Blackface tone, while others lean toward the ballsy crunch of a Marshall JTM45. The Buxom Better falls somewhere in the middle and is described as a blackface preamp section, with a JTM-45 power section. It’s not a gain monster like a Boogie or hot-rodded Marshall, but it’s capable of medium gain settings that many players rarely want to exceed. Hand-built in Los Angeles by one of the true guitar gurus of our generation, Dave Friedman, the Buxom Betty uses only the finest components and neat and careful hand-wiring. Dave’s compiled a list of clientele including like EVH, Steve Stevens and Jerry Cantrell, before developing his own signature amps. Features of this model include 50-watt single channel all-tube with hybrid U.S. and U.K. voicing, dual EL-34 power, 3-band EQ, Presence control, 3-position bright switch, custom transformers and capacitors and tube-driven spring reverb. There are a bunch of YouTube demos online. Click this link for a list. Sells new for $2699 but this one’s immaculate, never gigged, and just $1879. Includes original footswitch.
