Friedman Amplification Announces the Jerry Cantrell JJ-Junior Head and Combo

Friedman has unveiled the JJ-Junior, a 20-watt version of the company’s popular collaboration with Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell, the JJ-100.

Like its predecessor, the JJ-Junior is a two-channel, EL-powered unit, but built for stage, studio or bedroom practice. The amp boasts a 20-watt EL84 power section, a trio of 12AX7 preamp tubes, dirty and clean channels serving up “Cantrell gain and AC-like chime,” an ultra-transparent series FX loop and a 1x12" Celestion 16-ohm G12M Creamback speaker (combo only).
