When players think about Dave Friedman, they often think of the savage high-gain amplifiers he’s designed for some of the biggest names in rock ‘n’ roll. But plug in the Friedman Golden Pearl overdrive, and you’ll quickly realize he knows just as much about subtlety and transparent grit. Whether you want to run the Golden Pearl as an always-on tonal enhancer (a favorite method around Sweetwater), a way to give your amp that edge-of-breakup sound at low volumes, or are utilizing its onboard Hi Cut and Voice toggles to push your amp even harder, you’ll find the Friedman Golden Pearl a perfect addition to your rig.
