Retro-King Amplification offers a number of different amps for players who want a real old school authentic tone. One of their most well-known and best-selling amps is the Retro-King 18 watt 2x12 combo. Modeled after the 1966 Marshall™ 18 watt lead combo this 2 channel amp has four inputs (high & low) and Trem channel volume, tone, speed & intensity. Judging from feedback on the forums more than a few players have fallen in love with it's unique blend of vintage Marshall era sounds.
Chuck Dean, the man behind the machine at Retro-King has played guitars for years, and he has worked on amps for more than 20 years. His passion is for amps built during the 50s and 60s. After watching prices skyrocket he knew there would be a lot of demand for newer amps that produced the same tone as their vintage counterparts.
One thing he didn’t do was copy the circuits of these older amps exactly. Although Dean does recognize that this is a perfectly good way of creating vintage sounding amps, it’s not how he works. Instead, he hand-tunes each amp for the individual player, adjusting the circuit as needed to capture their unique tone. He adjusts the high end, adds or takes out gain, and subtly adjusts the normal channel to fit each player.
