Friedman ASM 12
JamieFC, 26.01.2018
I bought one of these for use with my Helix. Good solid amp. Love the leather handle. So many companies use cheap handles but the handle is one of the most important components. I'm a little disappointed that Friedman didn't supply a cover but apart from that. Beautifully made with a fantastic solid sound.

friedman ASM-12
Bruno395, 20.05.2016
C'est construit comme un tank, c'est lourd, c'est encombrant, cher mais..... ça sonne.

Avec un préampli-multi-effets à lampe Digitech GSP 2101 couplé à un simulateur de HP palmer PDI 05, la dynamique est impressionnante. Les aigus claquent sans être agressifs, les graves sont compacts sans être envahissants, les mediums sont présents chauds, brillants.
Aucune correction ne m'a été nécessaire, l'EQ global du Digitech est resté "flat.

Les 500W sont là, attention... l'usage domestique peut être délicat.. A l'inverse d'un ampli de puissance à lampe + HP inutile de monter dans les "tours" pour avoir le son. Ca le fait de suite le volume du friedman au minimum (à 0 le son passe).
L'énorme réserve de puissance assure un confort pour s'entendre sur de gros plateaux sans dégradation ni compression du signal d'origine (je n'ai pour le moment pas dépassé le tiers du volume)

J'ai branché le seul simulateur d'ampli dont je dispose le Boss GT 100 via une DI Radial. Autant être clair, ça ne fonctionne pas. Le GT 100 est un outil idéal pour le home studio ou pratiquer à la maison, mais sur l'ASM-12, c'est comme mettre un moteur de 2cv dans une Ferrari.

N'ayant jamais testé de Kemper ni d'Axe fx je me garderais de tout avis.

Pour conclure l'ASM-12 est une machine professionnelle destinée à être utilisée avec du matériel professionnel, dans un contexte Live.

Hautement recommandé...

Top Lösung für meinen Kemper
Sven946, 30.05.2016
mein Wunsch war es schon immer für meinen Kemper Amp eine Endstufen/Speaker Lösung für den Übungsraum und Live zu haben. So kann ich in Ruhe zu Hause meine Performance Einstellung machen und bin sofort überall einsatzbereit. Das scheiterte aber bis dato einfach am Sound. Ich habe diverse Transister Endstufen und Speaker(boxen) ausprobiert und es hat sich immer irgendwie muffig angehört. Mit der Friedman Box bin ich angekommen :-).
Endlich klingt eine Endstufen/Speaker Lösung super und erzeugt sogar ordentlich Schalldruck. (Fast) so wie ich es von meinem Marshall Röhrenamp kenne. Ein weiterer bekannter Vorteil der FRFR Lösung noch. Es ist egal ob du vor oder neben der Box stehst. Der Monitor klingt von überall gleich. Deine Fans hören das gleiche wie du. Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Der klingt ;-)
cschratt, 08.06.2017
Habe mir den Friedman-Monitor bestellt, da mir nach einiger Zeit mit dem Kemper vor allem auf großen Bühnen der "Druck" fehlte.
Der Friedman ist ca. 3x in der Woche im Einsatz und erfüllt seinen Zweck mehr als gut. Ob als Verstärkung für den kleinen Club oder als "Luftbeweger" auf großen Festivalbühnen.
Zum Sound: Genau das, was man sich von einem FRFR-Lösung erwartet: Detailgetreuer, klarer (und nicht dumpfer) und transparenter Sound, der richtig richtig laut auch noch gut klingt.
Fazit: Für alle, denen nach einiger Zeit ein wenig das "Verstärkerfeeling" bei ihrem Kemper fehlt, trotzdem aber den Sound des Kemper originalgetreu darstellen wollen, der perfekte Wegbegleiter ;-)
PS: Eine Schutzhülle für die Box wäre gut, vor allem für kleinere Gigs wo man nicht unbedingt ein großes Case herumschleppen will...
