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 Imperial Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Combo Amp, Turquoise Tone King Imperial Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Combo Amp, Turquoise

Meet a limited edition tribute to the 20 year-old vintage tone classic that started it all for amp master builder Mark Bartel and the Tone King brand. Builds on the Imperial's magic tonal recipe with hand wiring and a built-in Ironman attenuator (6 levels of attenuation, from 0db-36db) . No tweaks to the main signal path, but you'll find the reverb especially spacious and the trem especially smooth. The Ironman makes this the ultimate home or club amp. Loaded with the new Celestion G12M65 Creamback speaker. Rhythm Channel : The rhythm channel really delivers the classic blackface sound, instantly reconizable to fans of the Princeton or Deluxe Reverb, but with a more organic feel, like a really good vintage tweed deluxe. Lead Channel : The unique and effective Mid-Bite control makes the Lead Channel a lot more versatile than you would expect from a channel with only 3 controls. The Mid-Bite control is an exclusive Tone King design feature which does a lot more than simply adjust the midrange level - it completely transforms the overdrive character. With Mid-Bite fully off, the Lead Channel reacts much like a tweed deluxe. When played clean, the woody resonance of the cabinet, liveliness of the 5AR4 tube rectifer, and the expressive dynamic response of the cathode-biased output stage work together to give you the raw midrange, silky top end, and loose feel of a genuine tweed. Reverb : The Imperial's reverb circuit uses the same 12AT7 driver tube, 12AX7 receiver tube, and long-format 2-spring pan as those classic amps from the 1960s, to give you that same authentic spring reverb sound. Tremolo : The Imperial uses a vintage tremolo circuit which creates the tremolo effect by modulating the bias current of the output tubes. Compared to other methods (e.g. the opto-coupler method used in the Fender "blackface" era amps), this method creates the most gradual, smoothest, and roundest tremolo effect.

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

This Tone King Royalist is a 45 watt amp head. For tubes, it sports three 12AX7's, one 6V6, and two EL34's. One of the best features of this Royalist is the built in Ironman attenuator. It lets you get that authentic hard-working tube sound at five different volume levels, perfect for getting genuine tube feel without blasting the amp. There is a 3-band EQ along the front as well a presence knob. On the back, you'll find a fully buffered effects loop, line out with volume control, impedance control (4/8/16 ohm) and an extension speaker out and main out. This is a perfect amp for anyone who needs true British tube sound at any volume.

Tone King Imperial Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Combo Amp, Brown/Cream Tone King Imperial Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Combo Amp, Brown/Cream

Happy Anniversary. Meet a limited edition tribute to the 20 year-old vintage tone classic that started it all for amp master builder Mark Bartel and the Tone King brand. Builds on the Imperial's magic tonal recipe with hand wiring and a built-in Ironman attenuator (6 levels of attenuation, from 0db-36db) . No tweaks to the main signal path, but you'll find the reverb especially spacious and the trem especially smooth. The Ironman makes this the ultimate home or club amp. Loaded with the new Celestion G12M65 Creamback speaker. Rhythm Channel : The rhythm channel really delivers the classic blackface sound, instantly reconizable to fans of the Princeton or Deluxe Reverb, but with a more organic feel, like a really good vintage tweed deluxe. It gives you the shimmery clean tones and gritty, ringing overdrive that this style of amp is known for, but with an improved ability to control the timbre and expression of the notes with your fingering and pick attack. Lead Channel : The unique and effective Mid-Bite control makes the Lead Channel a lot more versatile than you would expect from a channel with only 3 controls. The Mid-Bite control is an exclusive Tone King design feature which does a lot more than simply adjust the midrange level - it completely transforms the overdrive character. With Mid-Bite fully off, the Lead Channel reacts much like a tweed deluxe. When played clean, the woody resonance of the cabinet, liveliness of the 5AR4 tube rectifer, and the expressive dynamic response of the cathode-biased output stage work together to give you the raw midrange, silky top end, and loose feel of a genuine well-worn tweed deluxe - perfect for honky tonk or blues rhythm playing with a tele.

MXR Kerry King 10 Band EQ w/ Boost Pedal MXR Kerry King 10 Band EQ w/ Boost Pedal
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.

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.
