This combo is smoking!!! Extremely versatile combo amp from Friedman. I dare say it's a modern classic Dave Friedman's Dirty Shirley open-back 1x12" combo was designed for guitarists that want a Vintage Classic Rock tone inspired by British tube amps from the '60s and '70s.

It is based on a modified JTM 45 but still delivers the signature high gain tone for which Friedman is best known. The Dirty Shirley is a 40-watt, 5881 powered, single channel amp that will give you that vintage crunch and also clean up nicely by merely backing off the guitar's volume knob. Extremely versatile, it is capable of producing many styles of music from blues to rock and country by just adjusting the gain and master controls.

It's fully handcrafted from Baltic birch and runs a 12" Celestion G12M Creamback. This 1x12 packs so much punch, tone, and clarity, there aren't many that can come close to touching how good this amp is.  

The Dirty Shirley 1x12 combo was designed to take pedal and loves boosts, OD's, phasers, flangers, tremolos and wahs, while the brand new ultra-transparent series effects loop handles your time-based effects pedals and rack units. Dirty Shirley don't care. 

This baby is one channel. Done. Across the main control panel you get high and low sensitivity inputs and controls for Gain, Master Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence. From sparkly cleans to light crunch, to full classic rock overdrive. It's in there. 

On the backside you get an ultra transparent series FX loop and a 4, 8 and 16 ohm Impedance selector switch.


This amp is used but is in excellent condition (see pics). Even still got the ol' tagger on it. It sounds utterly heavenly. Grab it for your new rig and it'l ship out safely & packed securely.
