Description

From Friedman:

Jake E Lee Signature 20-Watt All-Tube Head

Following the massively successful release of the limited edition JEL-100 signature head, Jake E Lee and Dave Friedman have teamed-up again and combined their legendary ears and talents to create the new Jake E. Lee 20 Head, a signature amplifier that offers Lee’s ultimate tones in a compact 20-watt package. The rigid Baltic birch head cabinet is presented in a beautiful signature red Tolex with contrasting white piping.

SIGNATURE AMPLIFIER

Offering Lee’s ultimate tones in a compact 20-watt package.

SIGNATURE COLORS

Designed to cosmetically match the Friedman Signature Jake E Lee 20 cab.

SIGNATURE SOUND

Embracing the athleticism of the ‘80s while remaining firmly rooted in the hard rock fundamentals of the ‘70s.

The JEL-20 is a 2-channel, EL-84 powered all-tube fire breather. In Lee’s own words, “this amp puts the two specific tones I use to create my sound in one head: The sweetness and warmth of a classic Plexi and the more aggressive slant of the master volume amps of the ‘80s — all tweaked to my taste. Dave has an innate understanding of where I’m coming from as a player and we’re alike in the way we hear tones. Dave doesn’t hear things as a technician, he hears things like a musician, and that made him really easy to work with. I grew up in the ‘70s and those muscular, articulate rock tones were the tones I always sought, but I made a name for myself in the ‘80s when you needed a little more aggression and a little more scream. I’ve always tried to retain a little of that ‘70s heart and I still do, and that’s what this amp does — though it’s got plenty more on tap if you need it!”

Jake E Lee is a giant of Rock music. With Ozzy Osbourne, his post-Ozzy band, Badlands, and most recently with his own group, Red Dragon Cartel, Lee’s playing embraces the athleticism of the ‘80s while remaining firmly rooted in the hard rock fundamentals of the ‘70s.

Jake’s tonal choices provide the evolutionary glue between the sonics of those two great eras. This new signature amplifier brings those tones in a user-friendly 20w package with features normally only found on the very highest end amplifiers. Dave Friedman has done it again.

CAB SIMULATED XLR

The Jake E. Lee 20 Head features an internal load and cab-simulated XLR output. Comparing this analog circuit to some of the most intricate computer-based IRs, Dave achieved a direct output you can proudly send to front of house or use in the studio.

SILENT RECORDING

The JEL-20 also 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.

LEGENDARY EFFECTS LOOP

The ultra-transparent buffered, series effects loop takes time-based effects pedals and rack units equally well. This is the exact same FX loop Friedman uses on all its amplifiers including the legendary BE-100.
