  • Buxom Betty - "Thinking outside of the box" with Jeremy Krull

    The all hand wired Buxom Betty is the ultimate clean to mid break up amplifier. With loads of head room this amplifier will take you from massively beautiful clean tones to classic angry textural crunch. This is enough for most other amplifiers in its class, but the Buxom Betty also bares the Friedman moniker, which means it is allusively versatile above all others and beyond even what it was originally designed to do.

Friedman in Detroit

As some of you may know, David Friedman was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. When the Friedman crew went out to Sweetwater Gear Fest back in June we stopped in Detroit and shot some footage, some of which we’d like to share with you guys.

This city has a rich history, not exclusively, but especially, when it comes to music, so it’s no surprise that while growing up there David Friedman was inspired by Detroit’s heady music scene and it’s legacy. Detroit has been the seat for so many iconic musicians that represent a wealth of genres, from the soul and R&B artists that gave it the nickname Motown, to blues, punk, hip hop, pop, rock and it’s even been cited as the birthplace of (believe it or not) electronic dance music.In fact, it’s impossible to talk about American music history without prominently featuring Detroit. In recent decades Detroit has fallen into decay and disrepair. But the heart and soul of Detroit are it’s people, who are unwavering in the task of rebuilding it, and who are certain that it can return to the greatness for which it was once known. This video includes shots of downtown Detroit, including the community-based art installation the Heidelberg project, Motor City Guitar in Waterford, MI, which is owned by Dave’s childhood best friend, and some footage from Gear Fest. Beyond the images of deteriorating and forgotten places, you can see the gleam of hope, nowhere does it shine brighter than in Detroit. After all it’s the place whose motto, written in 1805, is: “Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus”. “We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes”
