Artist TweedToneV 5 Watt Valve Guitar Amp
Artist TweedToneV 5 Watt Valve Guitar Amplifier
The Artist TweedtoneV is the latest model for our Tweedtone line of amplifiers. These amplifiers are known to provide Valve driven Vintage Voiced Tones at an affordable price. Now it comes in a smaller package making it more compact and mobile without sacrificing the tone which the Tweedtome Amplifiers are known for.
It features a Master Volume and a Presence Knob giving you a boost to your high mids and treble making them more pronounced. This will give your tone that livelier and raspier sound and also allowing you to cut better into the mix. It also has a toggle switch for when using Low Output Pickups(Boost) and when using High Output pickups (Normal). The beauty of the TweedtoneV is in its simplicity and ergonomic design.
The amp has a 5 watt RMS output through a high-performance Celestion G8C-15 Speaker.

Quiet? Am I missing something?By: Tony Williams on 6 October 2020I love this little beast! It feels solid and well put together, warms up quickly and satisfyingly and responds beautifully to my input. Sometimes I use a little delay or tremolo but mostly love its clean, unadulterated tones. I'm surprised when I hear people describe it as quiet. I haven't gone near cranking it to full volume but it scares me with my guitar volume set to just 2 or 3. I think I could easily get myself evicted with this little pocket rocket. Love it!
Worth the waitBy: Colin on 6 August 2020Preordered it 4 months ago but it was well worth the wait. Great little amp, sounds proper tweedy and the presence knob really adds some versatility to the tone. I tried a Joyo 5 watt and this leaves it for dead, it’s dead silent to, no hum until the vol knob gets almost full on. Even then the hum is barely noticeable. Swapped out the preamp tube for a 12AT7 and that gave a bit more clean headroom and seemed to work a lot better with humbuckers. The distortion with humbuckers at full volume seemed a bit tinny on some bass notes. The amp looks good to. A good little brother for the Tweedtone 20R.
Tweed never sounded so good!By: Steve Ledger on 21 January 2020Brett Kingman got me onto this with his YouTube review. I didn't know needed a small tube amp until I heard him play through this. What a little beast! Best of all it takes pedals extremely well. Two rotary knobs, what could be easier. 5 watts is still enough to annoy the neighbors so adding a TS type pedal lets me play dirty at a lower volume. I was lucky getting the last one in stock just after Xmas [store demo model] - very grateful for Ian at Artist for getting it to me so quickly. Highly recommended.
Great Little AmpBy: Ross Daglish on 27 December 2019I really like this little amp. Great cleans and growls nicely when you drive it a bit harder. About as good a 5W practice/small studio amp as you can get. The first one I got did did have a technical issue so I can't give it 5 stars, but I still love the tone, and Artist Guitars dealt with the issue about as well as could be done, so 5 stars to them for the after sales service.
Quality all the way!By: Clinton on 17 August 2019Honestly this amp is just stunning value for money - if a Fender badge was stamped on it no one would blink an eye. The build quality is on par with anything out there, nice weight to it and all knobs and controls are very high quality. The Celestion speaker sounds excellent and they really nailed the voicing - bass and treble levels are good by default and the simple presence control gives you enough control over the tone and cut through. It stays nice and clean on the normal setting which makes it great for pedals but can be pushed more easily using the boost control which is very handy. It records very well with a 57 or ribbon mic and actually can get very loud so don't be fooled by the size. Could take a star off for no external speaker output but honestly what's on offer here is just that damn good. Best purchase I've made in a while!
