About this amp:


Just released! In stock and available for immediate shipment from NashVegas Guitars - an Authorized Friedman Amplifiers Dealer.

We are blown away by this incredible new offering from Friedman! Killer Plexi and JCM 800 tones tweaked to perfection and all in a 20 watt head. This is a simply killer amp that you need to own and is as great in the studio as it is on live stages. We also have the matching 1x12 Creamback 65 loaded cabinets in stock that compliment this wonderful sounding head. 


From Jake E. Lee:
“This amp puts the two specific tones I use to create my sound in one head: The sweetness and warmth of a classic Plexi and the more aggressive slant of the master volume amps of the ‘80s -- all tweaked to my taste. Dave has an innate understanding of where I’m coming from as a player and we’re alike in the way we hear tones. 

The JEL-20 features an internal load and cab-simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer-based IRs, Dave achieved a direct output you can proudly send to front of house or use in the studio.

Dave doesn’t hear things as a technician, he hears things like a musician, and that made him really easy to work with.

I grew up in the ‘70s and those muscular, articulate rock tones were the tones I always sought, but I made a name for myself in the ‘80s when you needed a little more aggression and a little more scream.

I’ve always tried to retain a little of that ‘70s heart and I still do, and that’s what this amp does -- though it’s got plenty more on tap if you need it!”
