Pierson Amplifiers - Tweed and Custom Guitar Amps

1956/1958 Tweed Twin Amplifier

The Twin Amp (1956 - 1958 / 5E8-A and 5F8-A, class AB, fixed biased), available in 40 and 80 watts (respectively) is possibly the best , harmonically rich, loudest and clean rhythm guitar amplifier. It's also one of the most collectible amps ever made. The 80 watt version is considered by most players as "la creme de la creme". The Twin is great for Rock, Blues, Country and R&B. Although it does not breakup very easily, it still delivers a nice crunchy distortion tone when cranked up all way ... Keith Richards and the late George Harrison loved the thunderous output stage of the 80 watt version. Eric Clapton still plays Low Power Tweed Twins on tour.
