About this Artist TweedTone20R 20 Watt Tube Guitar Amplifier Combo

The Artist Tweedtone20R amplifier provides tonnes British Tube-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.  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.

I bought this amp out of curiosity and needed a smaller amp that is not too loud. I already have a Mesa Boogie Mark V, a Marshall JCM900 and a Fender Deluxe Reverb and this amplifier has lots of potential. I have replaced the V1 pretube valve (far right) with a 12at7 to lower the gain (this came stock with Ruby tubes) and replaced the stock speaker with Celestion Vintage 30. This amp is a tone monster now. I can't put down my strat playing into this. Another awesome product from Artist Guitars. Thumbs up!!!!!

Wow more than I expected

By: Mike on 10 September 2019
I watched a few YouTube reviews and thought for the price I could mod it if I wasn't completely satisfied. It took a few minutes to warm the tubes up and crank the dust of of the celestrian speaker but man this amp is awesome. No pedals all amp and I'm getting blues to rock tone right out of the box. If your thinking about it, then just get it you won't be sorry. Check out intheblues on YouTube. Shane has an awesome review and it's what sold me. Great job Artist guitar!

Literally The Best Amp At The Price

By: Matthew on 29 August 2019
Nothing at this price point comes close. Nothing. I've had mine a little while now and I still can't believe how good it sound! I haven't had the back off it but the chassis is generous enough that, should it entirely die, I can easily fit a replacement board in there. I don't expect that to be necessary, though, as this amp feels like it's competently built. It has the hallmarks of a Chinese build but it's not cheap. To describe the sound: it's a 20 Watt version of a Peavey Classic 30 - the clean is kinda fendery, kinda not but the drive channel is bold, powerful and surprisingly gainy. As a 20 Watt amp, it's loud ... but not too loud. If you have finicky neighbors, it's still sweet at low volume. If not, you can turn it up about 1/2 way before you'll want to leave the room. Would suit anyone playing blues, rock and harder. The clean is probably too dirty for most chicken-pickers and the dirty channel is too clean for out-and-out metal stuff. Everyone else will love it.

Gteat sounding amp. Incredibly professional and prompt service. Thanks Artist

Worth It

By: Luke on 10 August 2019
I was tossing up between two we’ll known brands, I wanted a good clean sound but also a good drive sound. I had settled on the clean option until I seen a review on this amp. I ordered one straight away. This amp has exceeded all expectations and I couldn’t be happier. I ended up with exactly what I was after and for a considerable amount less. Thank you Artist.
