Friedman launches the Twin Sister tube amp, putting two Dirty Shirleys in one
Friedman Amplification has launched the Twin Sister, which puts two of its popular Dirty Shirleys into a single amplifier. The amp was designed for players seeking out a “vintage classic rock tone inspired by British tube amps from the 60s and 70s,” said Friedman.
The Twin Sister is a 40-watt tube amp and – like the Dirty Shirley – draws from a modified Marshall JTM 45. Each is handcrafted and comes as either a dual-channel combo or head.
The amp uses five 12AX7 valves in the preamp section and two 5881 valves to drive the power amp. With the combo variety, you get a 12-inch Celestion G12M Creamback speaker at 16 ohms.
Promising to deliver “gorgeous sparkling cleans to a glorious vintage crunch and beyond”, the Twin Sister boasts powerful yet familiar controls.
On each channel, you’ll find master and gain controls, as well as a three-band EQ with bass, middle and treble knobs. Adding to those are global presence and ‘deep’ knobs to further sculpt your tone with, and a three-position gain structure switch which lets you quickly alter the characteristics of the drive.
The Twin Sister also plays extra well with pedals and outboard gear, thanks to a Ultra transparent series effects loop located in the back. And for impedance matching, there’s a three-way impedance selector for running the amp at 4, 8 or 16 ohms.
