Brand new 2023 Friedman BE-50 Deluxe Tube Amplifier Head. The Axe Palace is an authorized Friedman dealer.

Dave Friedman claims the BE-50 Deluxe 3-channel tube amplifier is the best amp he’s ever made. By combining the clean channel of his acclaimed Buxom Betty amplifier with a pair of BE (Gain 1) & HBE (Gain 2) -style dirty channels, the BE-50 Deluxe covers a truly expansive sonic range. A 3-way Gain Structure switch, plus switches for Sat (saturation), Voice (3-way), and Fat on the two dirty channels allow you to dial in your ideal flavor of overdrive and distortion. And a Bright switch on the Clean channel allows you add further spank to it. In addition, master controls for Thump, Response, and Presence offer fine-tune control over the amp’s playing feel in a way that few amplifiers provide. Complete with Dave’s critically acclaimed, totally transparent, Series FX Loop (with a Return Level control) and half-power switch (pentode/triode), the Friedman BE-50 Deluxe is an incredibly tonally versatile 50-watt tube amplifier that is perfect for a plethora of styles including all forms of rock and metal.

Like a heavily modded BE-100

In addition to its glorious Clean channel, the BE-50 Deluxe boasts two dirty channels — one with the much-desired BE gain structure and the other with the added drive that is HBE. While the BE and HBE channels share the same 3-band EQ section, they each have independent controls for Gain and Master. As a result, the range of overdriven tonal possibilities the BE-50 Deluxe has to offer is truly formidable. A 3-way Voice switch and 3-way Gain Structure switch further add to the amp’s already vast array of sonic offerings. And if that weren’t enough, a Fat switch is present to beef up the low end (perfect for single-coil pickups), while the Sat switch on the rear panel adds even more gain, compression, and saturation.

Fine-tune the feel to your preference

Guitarists know that how an amp feels is just as important as how it sounds. And whether you’re after a fast, immediate feel; a soft and spongy response; extra low-end girth; or anything in between, the Friedman BE-50 Deluxe is ready to accommodate. Thanks to its Master controls for Thump (low-end resonance/depth), Response (variable negative-feedback: low settings are dark and smooth; higher ones are bright and punchy), and Presence (adjust the upper mids and highs in the power amp), you can create your own ideal combination of playing feel and sonic impact.

Switchable High/Low power amp modes

You can halve the BE-50 Deluxe’s output from 50-watts to 25-watts with the High/Low Power switch on its back panel. This is done by switching the pair of the EL34s Power Tubes from Pentode (Full) to Triode (Low) operation. In addition to changing both output and headroom, Pentode and Triode modes each have their own unique tonal characteristics. EL34s in Pentode are musically aggressive and more “in your face,” while Triode mode is smoother and warmer.

Handwired Precision “Under the Hood”

Sometimes a picture can speak thousands of words, and this is certainly true of the painstakingly crafted, handwired beauty that lurks within the chassis of every single BE-50 head.
