Randy Fay’s take on the Friedman Smallbox Amp.

This thing flat out rocks

Housed in a Sour Mash Head Cabinet in Traditional Friedman/ Marshall attire.

Pictures loaded. There is a YouTube video f this exact amp. I will get it attached.

The following is Randy’s description OT the amp:

M50X This is a 2xEL34 classic M style amp with a footswitchable boost. The pre section of this amp is based on my Pasadena (FRIEDMAN). Has a loop - one that I have been using for years, based on Naylor SD60. I have been building amps for a long long time and rest assured this thing kicks.


Finished amp with cab and tubes, plug'n'play.

Consider me as a good chef and you are at my restaurant. You are asking for a steak - you aren't instructing how to cook it, you are trusting that the chef knows how to prepare a steak. Same situation here, but instead of steak you are looking for a custom M style amp. I have built more amps than probably anyone ever. I know what good tone is, and what makes an amp great.

Main signal path is point to point and components are in the best possible position.

The footswitable boost is mighty handy. It is really a partial tonestack bypass. The mid control sets the unboosted level, the boost pot sets the boosted level. An LED indicates whether the boost is on or off. Allows for a little bit of boost or A LOT.

We have a Friedman Small Box and BE100 here and I have tweaked this M50X to be a better sounding amp.

Depth is set the same as the Friedman's - ie 220k/.0047uf

Please check youtube for a clip.
