Frequently Asked Questions

What are the shipping rates?

We offer free shipping on most items to metro areas in ACT, NSW, VIC, and QLD. If you are in a regional area we do offer great shipping rates, though it is often too expensive for us to offer free shipping. You can calculate shipping costs in the checkout and on item pages with your postcode.
Orders under $50 incur a minimum order fee to cover shipping.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Our shipping platform will automatically determine and display the Express or Standard shipping options that are available to you. If Express is not displaying, you're either located too far away from our store in Canberra, or the Standard shipping option will get it to you just as fast for the same price. Express shipping is 1-5 days, Standard 2-10 days depending on how far you are away from our store in Canberra.

What payment methods do you offer?

We offer secure checkout options like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Zip Pay and Bank Deposit.
American Express payments are also accepted, although most AmEx transactions will require manual authorization after payment (Someone from the team will contact you to confirm the transaction after checkout)

Friedman Butterslax Head - 3 Channel - 100 Watts - Handwired

Bill Kelliher’s guitar playing is rooted in metal, infused with rock 'n' roll, progressive rock and sprinkled with bits and pieces of thrash, punk, and psychedelic-ness. So, when it came time for Mastodon’s guitar player to design the ultimate amp to cover the complexity of his playing, Bill decided to team with long time friend and respected tone guru, Dave Friedman.

The result of this collaboration is the new Friedman Butterslax, a 100w, three channel beast powered by 4 x EL-34s with gain, more gain, extreme gain and some more gain to top it off. But “high-gain” is an over simplification of the Butterslax - what Dave andBill created is a super high gain, ultra tight amp that delivers deep, rich, low-end that will make your pants rattle. Yet, the Butterslax delivers detailed midrange and singing highs that capture every drop of each refined note.

The Butterslax features three channels. Channel one with gain, master, bass, middle, and treble takes you from slightly overdrive tones to hard rock. Channel two, with the same controls takes you to where most “metal” amps leave off. The third, fire breathing channel, takes you 100 miles past the extreme, to gain heaven - or hell, deepening on your perspective.

The Butterslax features an ultra transparent effects loop, Baltic Birch construction, black tolex and checkered grille cloth. So if you’re looking for a clean amp to play, this is NOT your amp. But if you want an tone machine that measures on the Richter Scale, plug into the Butterslax and enjoy the ride.
