Friedman Small Box 50 Review after 9 Months

MMUN, 17.07.2018
This is an awesome amp, with nice cleans, crunch (Plexi) and the best British gain Rock Tones. The amp can handle any music style from Funk, Blues, Jazzy, Rock or Metal. I use the Friedman Small Box 50 in combination with a Marshall 2061CXV 2x12 loaded with a V30 and a Creamback G12M-65. The effectsloop is very transparent!

I was a bit unfortunate with my amp because I had two times the same issue, the amp did not turn on anymore. Luckily Thomann's customer services is super and the first time they replaced the amp with a new one and the second time they repaired the amp very quickly and send it back!

Thanks Thomann!

If you consider to buy the amp don't let you stop by my issues! This amp is as cool as everybody says on the internet and etc.

Great, but not for everyone!

Gerald aus G., 08.06.2016
In countless videos on YouTube you can admire this amp and its earthy sound. Especially the video with Phil X in the headquarter of Friedman, of course, makes a sound for kneeling down.
I was able to test the jewel extensively, so I dared to jump and ordered the part.
The amp has two channels that blend very well with only a small Feintuning. Great plus. Really quiet is the basic noise, but okay.
The Gainreserven are not exactly too rich for me in channel 2 and for the solo one probably would need a booster.
So far so good. I do not play anymore, or only very little live. After thirty years of rock music, my ears always make such peculiar noises after a loud session. Nevertheless, I teach guitar, and make recordings and videos. But the part is not more suitable than so many Dwargenamp for 1/10 of the price.
In the direct A / B comparison with a Jet City the amp could not convince me. Both amps were well developed in channel 2, the volume of the master had to stay however for consideration of the neighbors to <2>, which however already properly. Here I struck myself rather on the side of the smaller amp, which sounded a bit richer in this setup.
I recommend the Ebo Wagner test from Guitar & Bass. For me and my purpose this was certainly an excellent amp and went back.
