Friedman has debuted its new Twin Sister combo and head.

A successor to Friedman's Dirty Shirley, the 40-watt, 5881-powered Twin Sister head and 1x12 Twin Sister combo are based on a modified JTM45. The Twin Sisters feature two identical channels - with Gain, Master, Bass, Middle and Treble controls - a 3-position Gain Structure switch and a Bright switch.

Each model features five 12AX7 preamp tubes, two 5881 power tubes, a transparent series effects loop for reverbs, delays and other time-based effects, and Global presence and Deep knobs - which can be dialed to tweak the tone of the two channels.

The combo features tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction, and packs a 16 ohm, 12” Celestion G12M Creamback speaker. An impedance selector switch - which allows users to switch between four, eight and 16 ohms - is also included.

The Friedman Twin Sister combo and head can be preordered now for $2,999.99 and $2,799.99, respectively.
