Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell is known for his unbelivably powerful hard rock and metal riffing as well as some beautiful clean tones. So when it came to producing a signature amp with the one and only Friedman, Jerry wanted to capture his tone in one box that he can use on tour and the studio...That is exactly what this amp has become.
There are two very different sounds that Jerry goes back to time and time again. A very saturated British rock tone that has some 80's and 90's grungynes to it and an almost crystal clear AC style clean sound. Of course it doesn't just do those two sounds and with two seperate gain modes you can get a much calmer overdrive for when you want some more control.
One of the things Friedman is most known for is the build quality and the amazing dynamic range and response of their amps. While with some high gain heads you get a similar sound no matter your attack or how your guitars volume is set. With anything by Friedman you can really adjust the tone just with your hands making it a perfect choice if you want your rig to be as simple as possible.
100w Of Valve Power
Based on some of the best British valve amps ever made the Double J Jerry Cantrell is an all valve design with a pair of quad of EL34 power amp tubes as well as a quad of 12AX7 preamp valves making sure that the tone is as responsive as possible.
Here's what Friedman say about the Jerry Cantrell Double J Head
The undeniably crushing sound of Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell has sent countless guitar players on a quest to achieve his signature tone. Dave Friedman has captured lightning in a bottle in the form of the Friedman JJ-100, a collaboration between Friedman and Jerry Cantrell.
The JJ-100 is a 100-watt, two channel, EL34 powered beast that takes no prisoners. Saturated, complex, harmonic overtones create a tight response to assure no notes are lost over the full spectrum. These features are paired with AC30-like cleans and an ultra dynamic response to right hand attack, beautifully recreating Cantrell's iconic Seattle sound.
Jerry Cantrell and Dave Friedman spent years perfecting the JJ-100. This is Cantrell's first ever signature amp, so he went to the best. The hand crafted in USA head utilizes tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction and is built to withstand the rigors of the road.
