Friedman Amplification Releases the Twin Sister Head & Combo

A 40-watt, 5881-powered, dual-channel design based on a modified JTM 45 circuit.

Huntington Park, CA (September 28, 2020) -- Friedman’s popular Dirty Shirley combo was designed for guitarists that wanted a Vintage Classic Rock tone inspired by British tube amps from the 60’s and 70’s. And what’s better than one Dirty Shirley? Two Dirty Shirleys!

Introducing the Twin Sister! (head or combo)

The Twin Sister is a 40-watt, 5881 powered, dual channel head or 1x12” combo based on a modified JTM 45 but still delivers the signature British tone for which Friedman has become known for. The amp features two identical channels that can give you everything from gorgeous sparkling cleans to a glorious vintage crunch and beyond! Extremely versatile, the Twin Sister can produce many styles of music from blues to rock and country by just adjusting the structure, gain and master controls.

Handcrafted in the USA, the Twin Sister combo utilizes tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction and houses a 16 ohm, 12” Celestion G12M Creamback speaker that deliver the bass, mid response and signature sound you would expect from a Friedman amplifier.

The Twin Sister features all the beautiful finishing and solid construction that you would expect from a Friedman amplifier. Designed to take pedals and loves boosts, OD’s, phasers, flangers, tremolos and wahs, while the ultra-transparent series effects loop handles your time-based effects pedals and rack units.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
