I've heard of Baron amps,but never listened to demos.Wow do they sound and look great,and are reasonable priced.Any additional info comparing Baron and Splawn would be greatly appreciated.
All preferences aside :
1. Baron sounds great at low volume. Splawn .....not so much.
2. Clean channels : the Baron has a ridiculously good clean channel. Its worth buying the amp for the clean alone in my opinion. The Splawn QR and Nitro have very useable clean channels but the Baron is off the charts.
3. Baron amps are saturated and will give you that liquidy lead sound with no boosting. Actually boosting a Baron seems a bit silly but I am sure it has its applications. Splawn amps are very dry feeling and you cannot hide any sloppy technique when playing one. Playing a Splawn will force you to clean up your technique. Its a beautiful thing once you get the feel for it.
4. Splawn Nitro has a big low mid punch. If you like bottom end like a Dual Rec without the flub than the Nitro is the amp for you. Its nothing like a DR but if you like a DR than you will love a Nitro. The Baron has plenty of low end but nothing close to the feel of the Splawn IMO.
