Schecter Guitar Research Distributes Fox Gear

Schecter Guitar Research is now distributing Fox Gear pedals.

Fox Gear started as a joint venture in late 2017 between two Italian brands — Gurus and Baroni-Lab.

The founder of Baroni-Lab, Ugo Baroni, is an electrical engineer with more than 25 years of experience. He works at his production factory in China, where he researches and develops products with a professional team of international developers and engineers.

Chicco Bellini is a well-respected manager of Gurus who has instituted distribution in more than 40 countries worldwide, according to a company statement.

"I am a big fan of the Gurus pedals. I used the EchoSex and Double Decker all over the Beauty in Chaos record. [They are] extremely musical and inspiring machines," said Michael Ciravolo, president of Schecter Guitar Research. "I got to know Chicco Bellini, and one thing led to another. He approached us last NAMM, asking if we would consider a distribution deal. He knew we did this with Zakk Wylde's Wylde Audio brand, so it was a perfect fit, especially after hearing and playing through the Foxgear pedals. [They are] amazing pedals for the price."
