Dave Friedman is the man behind the signature tones of rock icons Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens and Jerry Cantrell. Dave has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for many of the world’s biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman’s innovative designs and meticulous construction have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians while earning him a loyal clientele from all over the world. One of Friedman’s mainstays has been modifying amps to each player’s specific tonal palette, and to consult with other established amplifier companies to improve their own designs.
Dave Friedman’s extensive knowledge and pursuit of tonal superiority inspired him to develop his own series of production amplifiers under the name Friedman Amplification. In the past, having Friedman build or modify your amp required a certain level of notoriety, but now his sonic wizardry is available to everyday players.
Each Friedman amplifier is built in the U.S.A. to Dave's exacting standards using hand selected components. After a rigorous burn in process, Dave inspects, tubes, plays and signs the chassis of every amplifier before shipping.
Paradox Effects is a company located in the border town of Tijuana, BC, México which started in late 2013. We decided to start our own company after talking about building our own pedals to make music, experimenting with electronics and making noise that satisfied our needs. Now Paradox has a line of pedals that go from oscillation Fuzzes to Delays with modulation. Our objective is not only to build pedals with high quality standards that meet a musician’s needs, but also to build devices that propose a universe where the duality of Sound and Visual are justified. We believe these devices to be a creative extension of the user, becoming something unique when used to make music.
