About this Artist TweedTone20R 20 Watt Valve Guitar Amplifier Combo

The Artist Tweedtone20R amplifier provides tonnes British valve-driven, vintage-voiced tone at an affordable price.  This amp has 2 channels, clean and overdrive.  There is a Footswitch jack underneath the back of the amp to switch between channels.  The footswitch is not included.

Both channels independent volume controls, and there is a master volume control which adjusts the overall volume of the amplifier.  So you can really drive the clean channel hard to get that nice warm overdrive "breakup" at levels that won't annoy your neighbours.  Switching to the Overdrive channel provides a thicker, creamier overdrive for harmonically-rich blues and rock tones.

The 3-band EQ is highly responsive and allows for a vast array of tones to suit your personal preferences.

This amp is loaded with a high-performance Celestion Seventy 80 12 inch speaker for excellent all-round performance and tone.

Amazing amp no matter what it costs

By: Clinton Tyne on 27 March 2020
Too good to be true and I am still shaking my head in disbelief. I am feeling this amp would sound great ran into a 2x12 cab. For the price I paid for this amp brand new I am going to buy another. This amp is gig worthy and can be very loud but sounds great in a band situation. If I had to describe the sound of it then I suppose you could say its a cross between a Vox and Fender, almost Dr Z Carmen Ghia. I would like to try it with a Celestion 2x12 cab.

Great for cleans and high gain!

No one has mentioned how this amp is also a high gain monster! Great sparkling cleans with a strat and was also getting huge metal tones from my LP with blackouts. Great open-back tube amp combo that's very responsive to touch. Love it!

Awesome - Artist TweedTone 20R 20 Watt Tube(Valve)

By: Pat Walsh on 28 February 2018
I love this Amp. At $499 It is pound for pound (and Dollar for Dollar) the Best value Valve amp around. it has separate Clean and Drive channels that You can toggle(noiselessly)between using an optional footswitch (I already had one) And both are Great The Clean is sparkly Clean and the Drive has some real Grunt. I have tested it with My Jimmy Vaughan Fender Strat(Single Coils), My PRS SE277 SemiHollow Baritone Guitar(P90s) and My Artist LP59 (Humbuckers)and all the Guitars really Shine through this Amp. My other Amps are a VoxAC15HW(Alnico Blue) and Vox AD60 VTX and this Little Champ is right up there with them at a fraction of the price

TweedTone 20R

Amp arrived this morning and I was immediately very impressed with the packaging. Plenty of cardboard protecting this beauty and although there are bumps and tears in the outside of the box the amp was untouched deep inside. After unpacking and a read of the one page instructions I powered it up and plugged in my Artist Butterscotch Tele (one of my favourites with new Tonepro Vintage Plus pickups fitted!!) An hour later I stopped playing and was stoked! Great amp and great fun! Before I bought this amp I wasn't sure if I needed it (not a reason I've worried about before) because I already had a Joyo 5 watt valve amp that really does all I need. As soon as I started playing though I new that I had a new favourite. Love the switchable clean/drive! Amazing possibilities of tone with heaps of grunt.

Brilliant Amp!

By: John on 26 March 2017
Super happy with this tube/valve amp combo. Sounds great with single coil or humbucker equipped guitars and can go low enough to be a practice amp for the house/bedroom, without annoying the neighbours. Build quality is excellent. This amp's value for money factor, can't be beaten, anywhere in the world, IMO. Buy with confidence. Free foot switch and leather strap intro offer was a nice touch, BTW.
