Up for sale, a Friedman Dirty Shirley Mini tube amp head in near mint condition and in perfect working order. Dave Friedman is well known for tweaking, building, and repairing amps for some of the biggest names in music, and his legendary reputation among touring musicians has gained him a loyal clientele including the likes of Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens, Jerry Cantrell, and more.
Hand-wired in the USA, Dave Friedman’s Dirty Shirley Mini is a 20 watt head version of the popular full-sized Dirty Shirley, which was designed for guitarists desiring a pure, distinctive vintage Marshall tone in a lightweight, compact enclosure. The Dirty Shirley Mini is fueled by a pair of EL84 power tubes and includes a three-position Gain Structure switch. This little beast delivers vintage crunch, and cleans up nicely by simply backing off the guitar’s volume knob. Extremely versatile, this amp is capable of producing tonal qualities well-suited to a broad range of genres simply adjusting the Gain knob, Structure switch, and Master controls.
The Dirty Shirley Mini was designed to take pedals well and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos, and wahs too. The brand new ultra transparent series effects loop takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. The Dirty Shirley Mini features tongue and groove Baltic Birch cabinet construction, sleek black tolex, salt and pepper grillcloth, silver piping, and a plexi logo. This head is clean as can be and built to withstand the rigors of the road.
