Tone King Amps

Tone King is one of those little known vintage amp companies that doesn’t go for big name recognition.  Instead, they focus on building the best quality amps they can.  Each and every piece has to be the best or it’s not going into a Tone King.  tone-kingEvery Tone King amp is hand built by Mark Bartel, the designer for the company.  He puts his all into each and every amp, so you know you’re getting a true masterpiece that’s going to sound amazing.  This means, however, that getting a Tone King amp can take quite some time since the products are not mass produced.

Tone King currently offers two different amps for sale The first is the Imperial.  This amp delivers all the great sounds of the 1950s and 1960s, and it looks the part, too.  It brings players that slightly spongy feel and raw tone that an amp this old should provide, but it is made with only the finest modern parts.  The Imperial is a 20 watt amp that is pretty lightweight.  It has two preamp channels, tremolo, and reverb, and it’s a very nice amp for small gigs or practicing at home.

The other Tone King amp is new for 2009, and it’s called the Metropolitan.  Tone King describes it as their finest amp ever, and it’s a completely new sound and design for the company.  It features a three-dimensional sound, a warm resonance, and a nice midrange chime.  The new cabinet design gives it an interesting new look, and the state of the art Phase-4 output power control, a Tone King exclusive, allows you to change the power level from 0.1 watts to the maximum of 40 watts for both the power tube overdrive and the distortion.

Tone King Falcon 12W 1x10 Combo - Turquoise & White Tone King Falcon 12W 1x10 Combo - Turquoise & White

Tone King's all new 12W, 1x10 Falcon channels the simplicity and grease fired glory of pure old-school guitar tone. Inspired by the rounded, burnished tones, syrupy overdrive, and chunky grit of vintage tweed and pre-tweed era amps, the Falcon is a whole new type of Tone King amp. A stripped-down single channel preamp means that more pure tone makes its way from your guitar through to the speaker. This new preamp is built around a raw, tweed-meets-supro tone with beefy mids and a sweetly burnished top end. A 3-position voicing switch allows you to tailor this basic voicing to be a bit cleaner and brighter (rhythm) or a bit tighter and gainier (lead). The all-new 2x6V6 output stage is where the real magic happens. Using a unique ultralinear configuration, cathode biasing, and zero negative feedback, this totally old-school output stage gives you a feel and response that canÕt be had from more conventional designs. Single notes swell with weight and authority. Overdrive comes on gradually, with a huge range of tonal variation between clean and overdriven. You can actually hear the tone evolve from soft and warm to angry and aggressive as you hit the strings harder, all before any grit even starts happening. When the 6V6s do start to growl, they break up with a consonant set of even ordered harmonics. This means that, instead of buzzy or hashy grit, you get chunky, syrupy, candy-coated overdriven tones. Authentic old-school tone requires a special kind of speaker cabinet, and the FalconÕs speaker cabinet is something truly unique. More than just a simple resonant box, the FalconÕs cabinet is tuned for a voice that recreates the vibe and mojo of a genuine vintage cabinet thatÕs aged for 50 or 60 years.

Pigtronix Philosopher King Pedal Pigtronix Philosopher King Pedal
List Price: $399.00

Pigtronix Philosopher King is a compressor, sustainer, distortion and polyphonic amplitude synthesizer. The Philosopher King takes our award-winning Philosopher’s Tone design even further, adding a full set of ADSR controls including swell, fade, hold level, speed range, one-shot mode, selectable auto reset, CV i/o and expression pedals for swell and fade times. With the Swell and Fade functions switched off, the Philosopher King provides transparent optical compression with endless sustain on tap. Adjustable compression, sustain and treble controls allow the musician to tailor the nature of the effect to meet the needs of the material at hand. From a subtle dash of added punch to massive, over-the-top howling sustain, the Philosopher King delivers clean, powerful optical compression. The grit control blends in a layer of sweet harmonic distortion that plays nice with other gain pedals as well as amplifier-generated tube distortion. The Philosopher King’s Swell function provides a pick triggered volume swell effect. The volume swell can be reset at any moment by muting or held open by continuous playing. This "slow gear" type effect is smooth and controllable with variable timing from extremely fast to very slow. The Fade function creates pulsating tremolo and stutter effects on its own as well as undulating amplitude modulation when used in conjunction with the Swell. The Philosopher King is a modern analog masterpiece, unmatched in its ability to re-shape the essential nature of any sound source.

Tone King Falcon 1x10 Tone King Falcon 1x10" Combo Amplifier Chocolate Brown/Cream
List Price: $1,795.00

It's no secret that a tube amplifier sounds at its absolute best when its cranked up to the point where the tubes are breaking up, giving you that natural overdrive. The problem with that, is that tube overdrive comes with unbelievably loud volume, which is most of the time too much for the bedroom or apartment.

Tone King Royalist Guitar Amp Head, 45 watts Tone King Royalist Guitar Amp Head, 45 watts

There is a 3-band EQ along the front as well a presence knob.

This is a perfect amp for anyone who needs true British tube sound at any volume.

Tone King Imperial - Black Tone King Imperial - Black

Mark Bartel put himself and his company on the map in 1993 with his Tone King Imperial. Mark wanted to build and design an amplifier that could capture the all-out raw tone of a well broken-in vintage amp and yet still have room to expand on the sounds you get from those old classics, his desires brought forth the Imperial. Mark is the soul builder/designer of the Tone King amplifiers and he makes every Imperial one-by-one in his shop in Baltimore. ItÕs obvious when you play through this amp that Mark Bartel is a genius sound engineer and a master amp builder.The Tone King Imperial features a Rhythm channel designed to represent that classic ÒblackfaceÓ combo tone, making this a great channel for smooth clean tones and a creamy, light overdrive. The Lead Channel was designed to really ÒdriveÓ the output stage of the amp with a clean preamp that canÕt be overdriven. The idea was to utilize the rich tone of the power tubes to provide killer tones that are tight on the bottom, pleasingly aggressive in the mids and pristine in the highs. To top it off the Tone King Imperial has a unique Mid-Bite Control that provides a wide range of tones; anywhere from classic ÒTweedÓ to fat ÒEnglishÓ tones. WhatÕs left to add? Nothing, for the Tone King Imperial comes equipped with Tube Drive Spring Reverb and a Tremolo that is reminiscent of older ÒBlackfaceÓ amps.

The reverb is sublime as well. This is THE amp for any gigging and recording professional who wants it all under one hood. No matter if you're playing at your local club, in your bedroom or Madison Square Garden, this amp is gonna turn heads with the sound it puts out and keep you smiling every time you lean into it. We whole heartedly approve the Metropolitan!

List Price: $249.21

If MXR's M108 10-Band EQ isn't heavy enough for you, check out its evil twin, the Kerry King 10-Band. Designed in conjunction with the legendary Slayer guitarist, this beastly, tattoo-covered pedal sports the same great features and hard core construction as the M108, but the King can punish two amps at once thanks to its dual outputs. Use it as a boost for solos or to create thrash approved, scooped-mid rhythm tones. Create raging sustain and feedback while getting more thunderous low-end out of your rig than you ever thought possible. The Kerry King 10-Band EQ: Use with caution. And don't say we didn't warn you. Power: Dunlop ECB004 18-volt AC Adapter
