Friedman Amps Unveils Two New Pedals

12AX7 TUBE POWERED PEDALS!

April 13, 2017 – North Hollywood, CA – Friedman Amplification has unveiled two new 12AX7 tube-driven pedals, the Fuzz Fiend and Motor City Drive.

Designed by legendary tone guru Dave Friedman, the Fuzz Fiend and Motor City Drive each utilize an

actual high-voltage (220-volt) 12AX7A preamp tube to deliver a fantastically smooth, organic feel. The

12AX7 tube naturally compresses, clips and adds complexity to create a more harmonically rich tone

than most transistor or digital devices.

The Motor City Drive and Fuzz Fiend are both available for purchase beginning April 14. 

 

FUZZ FIEND

If you're addicted to Fuzz pedals, the Fuzz Fiend may be the ultimate fix. The Fuzz Fiend takes you on journey from light fuzz to all-out mayhem via Dave's unique RAGE switch. The FUZZ knob, as turned clock-wise, makes the signal more square-waved and saturated. Where the FUZZ controls ends - the RAGE switch begins.   The RAGE switch when pressed down, causes the Fuzz Fiend’s circuit to become unstable, resulting in endless sustain and mayhem.  Rolling down the volume of your guitar transforms sustain into oscillation.

 

Key features include:

 

  • 12AX7 Tube Fuzz Pedal
  • Fuzz, Bass Middle, Treble and Volume Controls
  • Rage Momentary Switch

MOTOR CITY DRIVE

Named after Dave Friedman's home town, the Motor City Drive delivers rich tube tone that takes you from light overdrive to rich higher gain tones with incredible sustain.

 

The wide-range gain knob allows you to dial in the right amount of saturation and distortion while the Bass, Midrange and Treble controls are a true tube preamp style tone stack.
