Friedman JJ-100

If you are reading this, you already know the mojo that lurks within this amp. I will share with you that this amp lives up to the hype. I absolutely love the tone, the aggressiveness and the clarity. I have had it for about a month and have gigged it a few times. It cuts through the mix very well and the smile on my face while I'm rocking this beast is permanent. It's very easy to dial in. To be honest, I think it would be a struggle to dial in a bad sound. The 2 gain circuits (BE / JBE) offer flexibility. They are not footswitchable from the factory, but you can send the amp in to Friedman for a mod if it is a needed feature. I personally don't feel the need for that ability. The BE circuit is stellar. The JBE circuit is stellar on steroids. I set mine to JBE, as it suits the music my band plays. The clean channel is very good and serves me well during the few moments that I need it. But let's be honest, despite the quality of this amp's clean channel, you aren't interested in this amp for the clean capabilities. The effects loop is wonderful and transparent. Overall, I couldn't really be happier with this amp! The tone is addictive, and it sounds absolutely huge in a live setting. The price point is high, and it takes a real commitment to pull the trigger on a purchase. That being said, I would buy it all over again. If you are looking for an aggressive, yet refined amplifier that absolutely kills it from clean to low grit to classic rock to modern high gain...the JJ-100 might be your rig.
