Foxgear Presents the Baroni AFK150

The Baroni AFK150 is a true 150 W rms hybrid amplifier that offers a dual Channel TUBE Preamp section and hi-voltage ECC82 tube.


The CLEAN channel is designed to recreate the warmth and brilliance of vintage amps.

The DRIVE Channel, is designed after our award winning GURUS Doubledecker mkII preamp pedal, which recreates the classic sound of Vintage British stack amps, from edge to hi-gain distortion, it just growls when boosted by pedals. Both channels have separate tone stacks. Separate Gain and Volume for each channels, plus Master Volume and Master Presence complete the palette of colors available to create your perfect sound. Regarding the amp format, we thought let’s do something different…Let’s make a Desktop/CabTop amplifier. The AFK150 can fit on home studio’s desk, ready and waiting for you when you’re ready to record that killer guitar track. Also the AFK 150 looks right on top of your speaker cabinet. The wooden sides are easily detachable and let you use your AFK150 on your pedalboard as a pedal, featuring a classic footswitch on its top panel to switch between channels. A Remote Switching socket on the rear panel, will work with any standard latching type footswitch, and lets you change channels when using it as a desktop/cab-top unit.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
