PHIL X

Thomas822, 06.11.2015
Ich habe bereits einige Friedman Amps testen können und mich mehr oder weniger länger mit Ihnen beschäftigen dürfen. Daher möchte ich THOMANN für seinen tollen Service etwas "zurückgeben" und einen kleinen Erfahrungsbericht zu den Geräten schreiben:

Der X Amp ist des rohste und raubeinigste von allen Friedman Amps. Er hat weniger dieses PLEXI Bollern sondern vielmehr die Kante eines guten JMPs.

Er hat im Vergleich zu den anderen 100 Watt Friedmännern auch am wenigsten Gain. Durch den Gain-Cut kann man das Gainverhalten zusätzlich nochmals 2x abschwächen. Man könnte das mit HotRodded/Boostet800er/800er beschreiben.

Der Amp ist (wie jeder Friedman) äußerst dynamisch und reagiert klasse auf das Volume-Poti der Gitarre. Da vermisst man auch keine zusätzlichen Kanäle, denn alleine mit dem Gitarrenpoti kann man sich alle Facetten des Gainbereichs spielend herholen. Das ist selbst in dieser Preisklasse atemberaubend.

Der Amp hat weniger Features wie der BE100. Das macht den Amp zu einem einfach aufgebauten Rockmonster, bei dem einen nicht zig Mini-Switches überfordern. Ich persönlich mag das und PHIL X scheinbar auch... :) Außer dem Gaincut hat der Amp lediglich noch eine Art Variac. Durch einen internen Spannungsabfall wird der Amp etwas weicher und "spongy". Ist ganz nett und durchaus auch brauchbar. Vor allem dann, wenn es um etwas zahmere Klänge gehen soll.

Der PHIL X ist für mich trotzdem ein Rock/Hardrock Amp. Er hat einfach richtig "Kante" im Ton weshalb man ihm nur schwer "Schmuseklänge" entlocken kann. Mit dem singend warmen Ton eines echten alten 50er Plexis hat das wenig zu tun. Das Teil will rocken, rocken rocken... Wenn man sich Phil X selbst in YouTube etwas anguckt wird man auch schnell feststellen, dass dieser Amp einfach nur SEIN Signature Amp sein kann und wie die Faust aufs Auge zu ihm passt.

Also hier bitte keine nachgiebigen VintageSounds erwarten.

Ansonten wäre der PERFEKT arbeitende Effektloop noch zu erwähnen. Im Gegensatz zu BE100 und SS100 ist der Loop immer aktiv, was den Vorteil hat, dass der Masterregler auch da bleibt wo er hingehört, nämlich vorne ans Chassis. Bei BE und SS hat man ja den Nachteil, dass bei aktiviertem Loop der FX-Level Regler zum Master Volume wird und somit auf der Rückseite des Amps liegt.


Zusammenfassend ist der X Amp ein echter Rocker, der nicht ganz so poliert und fein wie die anderen Friedmänner klingt. Er klingt kantiger, roher und rauer und hat weniger Gain als seine Kollegen. Gerade das macht ihn aber extrem artikuliert und groß.

Wer auf Rock und Hardrock steht sollte sich dieses Amp auf jeden Fall einmal anschauen.

Wer sanftere bzw. mehr vintage orientierte Klänge sucht sollte sich mal beim Smallbox (50er Plexi), Dirty Shirley (Hot Rod JTM45) oder SS100 (Hot Rod Plexi) umsehen.
