The Meanest Little Amp Just Got Mightier.


Wildwood Guitars was beyond honored to team up with legendary amp builder Dave Friedman to create the Limited Edition Wildwood Small Box 50, an amp that was immediately embraced by our exceptional customers all over the world as the ultimate hot-rodded 50 watt Plexi-style platform. We have been blown away by the incredible demand and warm reception, and couldn't be happier with our first ever Limited Edition amplifier.

When we had the opportunity to create another amp to add to our Wildwood Friedman line, we decided to do something just a bit different. We didn't want to create another 50 watt variation, or even a 100 watt, fire breathing monster. After all, the BE-100 is the flagship Friedman amplifier for good reason, and going bigger wasn't going to solve the problems of the everyday musician. The real intrigue for the Wildwood Staff was something a bit...smaller. Meet the Wildwood PT-20, a simple, straight forward 20 watt platform that builds on the original PT-20, known for incredible, signature Friedman tone in a 20 watt, hand wired package.

The Friedman WW PT-20 utilizes a three-way gain structure switch, similar to that found on the Mini Dirty Shirley, a staff favorite here at Wildwood, which allows players the opportunity to adjust the gain structure to their tastes, whether that's the perfect sparkling British clean tone or a hot-rodded gain monster. To take things a step further, we added an additional boost switch, inspired by the now signature boost channel found on our Wildwood Small Box 50, pushing the preamp section into an ultra saturated, yet articulate tone monster. (NOTE: Engaging this fiendishly savage mode does compress and saturate the signal, causing a slight drop in volume. Adjust your Master Volume to taste.) To top things off and add an additional layer of versatility, we've added Dave's ultra popular "FAT" switch to the back of the amp, giving players the option to beef up the pre-amp side, specifically for use with single coil equipped instruments or low volume sessions. The result is an amp that's simple to use, yet extremely flexible and arguably, one of the most versatile lunch box style amplifiers on the planet, allowing players the full spectrum of plexi style tones from clean to hot-rodded, over the top scream in a compact package and, more importantly, without compromise. The Wildwood PT-20 sports an aesthetic similar to it's big brothers, along with a unique Wildwood Guitars serial number.

Perfect for studio, home use, and even live situations, the WW PT-20 is the ultimate lunch box style amplifier with a signature Friedman feel and tone at a fraction of the price (and size!). Wildwood Guitars is proud to present to you the latest in our collaboration with Dave Friedman: the Wildwood Guitars Limited Edition PT-20.
