Friedman Announces Little Sister Heads and Combos

Friedman Announces Little Sister Heads and Combos

The Little Sister is a 20-watt, EL84 powered, single channel head or 1x12” combo based on it’s 40-watt predecessor, but still delivers the signature British tone Friedman has become known for.


The amp features one channel that can give you everything from gorgeous sparkling cleans to a glorious vintage crunch. Extremely versatile, the Little Sister can produce many styles of music from blues to rock and country by just adjusting the gain and master, S-Switch (gain structure) and B Switch (Bright/Tight).

The handcrafted in the USA cabinetry features tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction, and the combo houses a 16 ohm, 12” Celestion Creamback G12M-65 speaker that deliver the bass, mid response and signature sound you would expect from a Friedman amplifier.

The Little 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.

PRS Guitars and Ted McCarty family drop “Theodore” trademark objection, and Gibson agrees to drop opposition to PRS’s “594” and “Silver Sky Nebula” trademarks and trademark applications.

PRS Guitars yesterday announced that it has withdrawn its objection to Gibson’s registration of the “Theodore” trademark.

And, at many settings, it is most certainly that.
