About This Listing


The Runt-50 is a 50-watt all
tube head that delivers Friedman's legendary tone in a versatile
2-channel amp. The Runt-50 power section is driven by two EL-34s, with
four 12AX7s in the preamp. The American-inspired clean channel features
volume, bass, treble, and a three-position bright switch that delivers
anything from pristine cleans to a slightly broken-up blues/country

The heart and soul of the Runt-50 is the overdrive channel,
which will take you from classic rock to all-out assault. Use the Boost
switch and Gain knob to dial in the perfect amount of overdrive. A
global presence control shapes the high-frequency response of the Runts
power section.

The Runt delivers the tight bottom end and
midrange that is typically only found in much higher-wattage amps by
utilizing custom transformers and the cleanest signal path possible. The
Runt is ideal for many styles of music from blues to classic rock and
heavy metal by merely adjusting the gain and master controls.

into the Runt, you will instantly notice the harmonically rich detailed
chords and resonating single note lines. This amp cleans up
exceptionally well with the guitar’s volume knob, even with the amp on
higher gain settings.

This is the first amp Dave Friedman has
ever made with a 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. The XLR output includes a ground-lift, level, and center/edge of
speaker cone simulation switches.

This Runt was designed to take
pedals well and loves boosts, ODs, phasers, flangers, tremolos, and
wahs. The ultra-transparent no tone loss, buffered, series effects loop
takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. The head
cabinet features beautiful black Tolex, with Baltic birch construction,
and is built to withstand the rigors of the road.
