    Default Baron k88

    So, I got a baron k88, and while I don't have the depth of experience that some of you here do, I do have a bit...
    And I think this is my favorite distortion tone I've ever heard.
    Like, ever.

    And the guy that makes them just closed up shop like last week, so that's a shame. But I'm really really impressed.

    Dammit, I hate that you can't edit thread titles. Won't miss that.

    No, its just a black one. I'm not cool enough for the snake skin. But I scored it for $740 shipped.
    It sings.

    And I've never seen an amp that runs (literally) hotter in my life.

    They are pretty mean.

    I like the distortion. It's got a pretty small grain when you get it cranking. But it doesn't get indistinct.

    Stock 72' LP standard.

    The clean channel was really er... CLEAN. Like insanely clean.

    Not necessarily a bad thing mind you. Just a surprise.


    Too bad he packed it in. These were fine amps. Great build quality as well.


    SM.
    Kill me. No really. Just fucking kill me.
