Très efficace !

Voilà deux semaines que je teste ce plug-in et parviens facilement à trouver des sons incroyablement expressifs avec mes guitares. strat, demi-caisse, archtop : toutes donnent un rendu très convaincant et naturel. En jouant sur le gain (d'entrée), je parviens à obtenir du son clair riche au crunch rond et gras, idéal pour moi... mais je sais que les saturations plus importantes sont possibles pour les amateurs. Tous les réglages sont hyper efficaces, notamment les 100 simulations de cabines et prises de son qui influent énormément sur les timbres, sans rien dénaturer. Bref, je suis bluffé et je n'utilise plus que lui !

Refined

I tend to gravitate more and more to this Amp. It allows me to dial in a more sophisticated sound without having to go to the extremes of distortion. It provides a great addition to the Marshal Plexi and the SUHR se100

Love this plugin!

This amp sounds like a real amp! Just excellent, highly recommended! I’ve been playing guitar for over 35 years and was surprised at how good this sounds. Thank you UAD team!

Unglaublich realistischer Amp!

Wir haben im Studio den Friedman eingesetzt und sind überrascht worden. Verschiedene andere Plug Ins hatten wir bereits getestet, aber der Friedman hat alle in den Schatten gestellt. Eine unbedingte Empfehlung!! Beste Grüße Peter Schmiedel / P & K music

Bell-like Airy cleans. That alone worth the price of admission.

The only sim/emulation I've heard that has "that" sound. It's woody, airy, open..like a deep breath that finally expands your lungs fully. There are other superb cleans and maybe even cleans more suited to a flat c'chunk sound but if you are after that bell-like deep end plus twangy high end, this is the only one. I'm torn on the goodness of other UAD emulations such as DS40, Train II, etc - they're excellent but none breathe like BB . The real amp I'm guessing might lose it quickly with volume if fighting club noise but the emulation effectively adds a master volume without affecting tone. I could get more features for my buck choosing another girl but I know I'd regret losing out on Betty.

Excellent Emulation!

This is a great emulation for those seeking a non-traditional sound but which can be just as good, if not better!

Super!

Una simulazione perfetta, adoro questo ampli per i suoi suoni clean e davvero super la possibilità del banco FX integrato! Lo utilizzo in quasi tutte le mie sessioni e lo consiglio sopratutto a chi vuole ottenere un suono caldo e pulito.

60’s crunch and glassy saturated tones

I play mainly on a Rickenbacker 330 and this is just THE amp that gives you both a Marshall like saturated crunch tone and the chime-like harmonics of a Fender amp. “Boutique” that’s what’s keep popping up in my mind when I play it.
The unison response is out of this world. I can feel the speaker pushing air while I play my guitars through Betty. Best UAD buy! Oh yes, almost forgot; Brainworx is very generous with the free guitar tuner that comes with it.

All the popular guitar tones pass the review

Somehow this amp brings me back to all the best guitar tones of the 80’s.
Of course it has more sounds up its sleeve. This is the pop-guitar amp for me, from nicely distorted to warm, full clean. It’s one of my favorites now.

New go-to for clean tones

I’ve acquired several lovely, highly regarded amp sims this year that I use for different purposes but this quickly took over as my main clean amp for recording and silent practicing. Complex tone, versatile, impeccable feel, plays well with my pedalboard. I almost love playing as much as my real life Bogner Goldfinger 54 (almost!).

Drowned in lovely saturation

Buxom Betty gives you a overwhelming amount of saturated tones. Very responsive on Unison, very impressive sound. My Rickenbacker 330 shines on this Friedman amp. Best amp on Apollo.

Classic Tones

I’ve been playing guitar for over 30 years. So you can imagine I’ve had many different setups. Naturally I still use my Marshall and Fender Amps but I demoed this plug in and was really taken a back by its tone. Seems to have the bellish glow you get from a great tune amp. So much so that i used it exclusively on my latest instrumental, I’m a fan and my roots are in rock blues / hard rock and honestly this plug in is now part of my arsenal for re riding and producing. You can hear it here. all guitars were recorded through the Friedman https://youtu.be/--JJN7rSv_w Kudos to Universal Audio
