    Friedman Fun. By request. Preset (free) and demo vid.

    @Rafa Diaz asked me to have a go at a Friedman preset. I don't own a Friedman and have never tried one in the real world, but the models sure are fun. Note that there are significant differences between the Cab Channels, specifically A and C. C has the cab/s most people defer to and A is a swag...

    Friedman rattle

    Hi guys - wondering if any of you who have the ASM12 have ever heard something like this rattle I'm hearing.

    Hi fine folks! I have been trying out the sat switch on the Friedman models and have noticed that the Saturation Drive is default on 4(like any other amp), while other amps that use the diode/jose sat switch have another default value.
