What Is A Boutique Guitar Amp?

Perform a Google search on the term “What is a boutique amp” and you will find many threads from many gear related forums where members debate the meaning of the term and the criteria by which a boutique amp is defined. Virtually every participant in the online boutique debate agrees that to be considered a boutique amp company small or limited production capacity is a requirement. There are many amp companies that are generally considered to be boutique, such as Soldano, Rivera, Fuchs and THD to name a few that use PCBs. Note that while these amps use PCBs, they are hand assembled and, in at least the case of the Gem, the components are mounted to the PCB by hand and hand soldered. Most if not all participants in the boutique debate seem to agree that to be considered a boutique amp builder, production must take place locally – not in Asia or other areas of the world where labor rates are low. It’s interesting to note that in all of the online forum threads that I studied, VERY few participants mentioned tone as a defining factor of a boutique amp! A few commented that not all boutique amps sound good to them.

Dave’s Corner: Boutique Amp Guide Part I

I frequently receive messages from guitarists who are in the market for something new in a boutique amp, but are baffled by the broad selection available today. Richard Goodsell of Atlanta, GA, was working on Hammond organs and Leslie cabinets for several years before deciding to convert a spare Hammond tube chassis into a small guitar amp. The result would become the Super 17, Goodsell’s flagship, a dual-EL84 amp producing 17 watts which is now in its fourth iteration as the Mark IV. Goodsell amps are all hand-wired using quality components, and tend toward the more compact end of the scale, too, which has made them a popular club amp with many city dwellers in particular. The pair sold an amp to Carlos Santana while the company was still in its infancy, and quickly gathered a string of major players on its artists roster, developing a reputation as one of the premier makers at the upper echelon of the boutique market in the process. Dave Hunter is a writer and musician who has worked extensively in the USA and the UK. The author of The Guitar Amp Handbook, Guitar Effects Pedals, Guitar Amps & Effects For Dummies, The Gibson Les Paul and several other books, Dave is also a regular contributor to Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar magazines.

Baroni Lab Guitar Amplifiers

Founded in the 1990s by Ugo Baroni, Baroni Lab is a Boutique amplification and effects pedal company based in Northern Italy. Pushed by a deeprooted love and passion for all things tone, Ugo began to experiment with blending different components and configurations together, aiming to produce the high quality, rich tones that make the electric guitar such a great instrument to listen to and play. Years of experience and an enthusiasm to create the best possible equipment that he could resulted in the first Baroni Lab amplifiers, the ‘BL’ series. These all tube vintage styled heads and combos were designed to encompass three of the most important aspects of a guitar amp; tonnes of crystal clean headroom, a blend of just the right even harmonics to make the tone rich and full and the ability to work comfortably together with different effects pedals. Since then the Baroni Lab production has expanded to include a host of amplifiers for guitar and bass, as well as a selection of vintage effects pedals covering everything from delay and modulation, through tube overdrive to all out saturated distortion.
