Tone King

collapse expand iconDescription

With the Tone King Imperial MKII 20W 1x12 tube guitar combo, everything you know and love about the original is still there—the spanky blackface-style voice, the gritty tweed tones, all of it; however, the MKII takes it all a few steps further. Its two channels have been tuned for better-sounding overdrive, a smoother top end, and more harmonic complexity. The amp's vintage-voiced tube reverb and tremolo will cause you to question whether you’re actually playing a vintage amp. Thanks to the Imperial MKII’s onboard Ironman II power attenuator, you can get all of these tube-driven tones at any volume.

20 years of improvement
If you love the sound and feel of the original design, you absolutely have to try the Tone King Imperial MKII. Springboarding off of the tones that made the original flagship amp, Tone King included a few tonal adjustments and additions that are sure to make the MKII your new go-to tube amp.

Ironman II reactive attenuation
Tone King included its Ironman II power attenuator aboard the Imperial MKII for even more flexibility. Now you can bring your Imperial’s maxed tube tones to band- or home-friendly levels. With reactive-load technology, your amp with sound and respond the same at any volume.

Onboard spring reverb and tremolo
Spring reverb and bias-modulated tremolo are two sounds that define the tone of many vintage American-voiced combo amps. With its tube-driven circuits and old-school control, you’ll find the Imperial MKII gloriously re-creates those thick, splashing, pulsating tones.
