Used Friedman Runt 20 Guitar Amp Combo
Huge Sound Small Footprint
Up for sale is this awesome Friedman Runt 20 amplifier! This is a 20-watt all-tube head that delivers all the British-style warm tube tone that Friedman is known for, all in a compact 2-channel amp. This amp is in excellent condition, has been tested to perfect working order, and is ready to roll.
The Runt-20’s power section is driven by two EL-84s, with three 12AX7s in the preamp. The clean channel features a volume knob and a 3-position bright switch that delivers anything from pristine cleans to a slightly broken-up tone The true power of the Runt is on full display with its overdrive channel, which gives you everything from warm overdriven tube breakup to all-out heavy distortion. Throw in a Boost switch and Gain knob for even more tweaking to dial in your desired gain. You can utilize the presence control to shape the high-frequency response of the amp. This amp is very responsive to the volume of your instrument.
Plenty of Options
The Runt allows you to play "silently," meaning you can safely play the amp WITHOUT having a speaker cabinet connected. The XLR output includes a ground-lift, level, and center/edge of speaker cone simulation switches. This is the first amp Friedman has ever made with an internal load and cab-simulated XLR output, giving you flexibility to go direct to the house and not lose any tone. In addition there is an ultra-transparent no tone loss, buffered, series effects loop that takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. The cabinet features beautiful black Tolex, with Baltic Birch construction.
