Does anyone do similar mods to friedman locally? I suppose I could just send the amp without the chassis.

Anyone have any thoughts, recommendations or info concerning these types of mods? My favourite all-time amp was a vintage marshall modded by friedman personally, and if my new marshall has the kavorka, I may send it to him.

I have gut shots of the mods, but have no idea what I'm looking at. I used to be hesitant sharing them, but I'm pretty sure he's doing okay now

This was the beast.

I just pm’d Michael R/T about him possibly having his way with one of my 4010’s. Look him up.

Send it to friedman if you want the friedman experience.

Or... buy one ;)

Chuck, that thing was too noisy! Don’t you remember?
Get @Michael R/T to do one for you!
IIRC, the only reason I sold it was because I bought the metroplex, and I thought it was going to be the shit (thanks to Lance Keltner and Cliff Cultreri). That was the hardest amp I have ever played (well built and all that though).

It also didn't have an effects loop, so I was running it through a power station (which worked great, but not ideal). Noise didn't bother me with that one.

The mods work with the character of the amp, so if you get a vintage amp that's good, it's superior to the factory stuff he pumps out, imo.

Yes, you're right. You got them on my radar. You do owe me one, haha.

Thanks for the link. This amp may be perfectly fine, so I may not do anything to it, but it's good to know.
