Friedman Amplifiers Collection
Friedman Amplifiers Collection
Versatile but can be noisy
Before you click to buy, be sure to audition the BE-100 high gain settings without the noise gate. I found it almost intolerable even with (supposedly) noiseless tele pickups - audible nasty buzz/crackle at times even when playing. I would imagine that true single coils would be a total non-starter. Apart from the high-gain noise issues, I found the BE-100 to be very versatile with a polished "big" sound.
The DS-40 didn't have the noise problems and also sounds fantastic in its more boutique/raw way. Also be sure to audition the various cab/mic combinations on both amps.. they really do make the plugins all the more versatile.
Just added the Friedman Amps to my collection. Between the Dirty Shirley, BrownEye and Jmp 2203, it would be difficult not finding a tone you love! Highly recommend any or all of these! I use them with Apollo Twin
These amps sound great and really started to sing with my Apollo turned up to that sweet spot - highly recommended.
Hard to believe it's digital!
The quality of the AMP modeling plugins from UAD are truly unbelievable. 2:00 am Full distortion without being thrown out by the wife!
Better than the gawdawful Softube Marshall collection-the Friedman by brainworx is very useable. A tad on the mushy side but it sounds very very close to my $2500 Fractal on this one except to my ears the Fractal edges out in the lead tones slightly. Nice to have this one in the toolbox.
I straight love this emulation of the Friedman Dirty Shirley. I´m usually not into software Amps, as I have the mini DS and others around. Just bought this as an option and now....can´t stop palying.
You really can't go wrong with this collection.From clean to crunch sounds Friedman sound amazing!Really a lot of sounds and mics to choose from and get the sound you want.Great job UAD!
Best one yet.
I've been using amp simulation plug-ins and am always searching for the latest improvements offered by a number of different brands. I bought this one because I'd heard one of my guitarists playing through a Friedman amplifier before, and it had such an incredible tone. After a bit of tweaking I realized that that particular tone I'd heard before and many, many others can be achieved with this plug-in. The vast assortment of mic and cab variations give you such different sounds that it is nearly impossible not to find one that's suitable. I was using this to "feel a more natural recording performance", while tracking, and liked the tone so much I ended up using it in conjunction with another UA plug-in and a natural amp, to come up with the tone of my dreams!
The best guitar plunging
Very nice like it very much.The sound that is i want
Look forward to more Guitar plugins UA!
I think it is the best guitar plugins UA
Wow, very impressive!
So close to the real thing you can almost hear the air being pushed by the speaker!
Amazing!. I've not used guitar amplifier simulator plugin before it, this sound so real, and exiciting.
Just recorded with it, sounds great, very dynamic, now I got the ENGL and this one to enjoy a very flexible guitar recordings.
Friedman Collection - Good Worker
Quickly connect and have a great sound. Responds like a real amp, very good worker. Super sounds. UAD excellent !!!
Huge Friedman amps fan ..
And these NAIL the actual amp tones and feel. Both amps are extremely versatile!
Very responsive amps.
You can get aA LOT of good sounds from these amps! They rock...
Good amps but...
This amps are great if you just want that ACDC sound
however i could not get a nice clean sound out of either of them,Amplitube is still better!
Ok, but real tubes sound just like real ones....
If it would be true that the plug in sounds like the real deal I would tell Friedman that I want 3450$ back.
You get what you pay for and 250$ is not 3700$
I am an owner of Friedman tube amps but I thought I would give the plugin a try for ease of use when recording and not disturbing the neighbors. All I can say is that this plugin is jaw dropping. What a great job UAD/Brainworx did with this Plugin.
