The undeniably crushing sound of Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell has sent countless guitar players on a quest to achieve his signature tone. Dave Friedman has captured lightning in a bottle in the form of the Friedman JJ-100, a collaboration between Friedman and Jerry Cantrell.
The JJ-100 is a 100-watt, two channel, EL34 powered beast that takes no prisoners. Saturated, complex, harmonic overtones create a tight response to assure no notes are lost over the full spectrum. These features are paired with AC30-like cleans and an ultra dynamic response to right hand attack, beautifully recreating Cantrell’s iconic Seattle sound.
Jerry Cantrell and Dave Friedman spent years perfecting the JJ-100. This is Cantrell’s first ever signature amp, so he went to the best. The hand crafted in USA head utilizes tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction and is built to withstand the rigors of the road.
If you are looking for a heavy-hitting powerhouse, plug into the Friedman JJ-100W.
