The Foxgear Tweed 55 is not a regular overdrive simulating a Tweed amp, but an actual miniature, 55w poweramp + preamp in pedal format that mimics the behavior and harmonic content of the tube preamps like the American clean classic amps and the classic British tones. This means that you can (and should!) plug it directly into a speaker – and definitely not place any pedals in the chain after it.
The Tweed 55 has a finely tuned 3-band EQ section and two gain knobs (Gain and Master) that allow a wide range of harmonically rich tones from clean to overdriven with plenty of headroom. Placing your favorite dirt box before it will open up your palette of sound even further.

The new Tweed 55 FETs preamp section truly mimics the behavior and harmonic content of the tube preamps like the American clean classic amps and the classic British tones. The Tweed 55 offers an abundance of crystal clean tones with plenty of headroom, place your favorite OD/Distortion in front and the tone is unbelievable.
Lightning fast response and harmonically rich, you will forget you’re not playing through a tube amplifier. The Tweed 55 are the perfect backup amp.
