Get All-Tube Circuitry, Traditional Spring Reverb, And A Specially Voiced, Highly Resonant Cabinet - The Tone King Imperial MK II 1 x 12" Combo Amplifier

CHUCK LEVIN'S WAS THE FIRST NORTH AMERICAN TONE KING DEALER

First introduced in 1993, the Tone King Imperial Combo Amplifer has become a proven favorite of guitarists seeking authentic vintage tone. Utilizing all-tube circuitry, traditional spring reverb, and a specially voiced, highly resonant cabinet, the Imperial captures the true experience of playing a well-worn vintage amplifier - both in tone and feel.

Twenty years of research and development have been engineered into the new Imperial MK II to capture the best of authentic vintage tone while offering a number of useful new features.

HANDWIRED BOARD CONSTRUCTION

By providing optimal component placement and wire routing, the new “handwired board” layout delivers real sonic advantages. You get a thicker, beefier tone with more character and focus, and lively dynamics.  The highs become smoother and silkier with less glasiness and more chime.  Mids are chunkier with more harmonic complexity.  The new Tone King Imperial MK II has plenty of presence and "air" without sounding overly bright.  The noise floor is much lower with less interference from electronic devices thanks to a built-in AC noise filter.

IRONMAN II COMPENSATED POWER ATTENUATOR

Thanks to the Ironman II, The Tone King Imperial MK II has a tuned reactive load.  Volume Level Compensation circuitry progressively modifies the EQ curve and compression at lower attenuation settings. This means that the sound you hear at low volume is just as fat and present as it is at high volume. Damping Factor Compensation circuitry allows the speaker to act more naturally at low power. This prevents the speaker from feeling “stiff” at low volume - it really feels like you are playing a cranked amp, even at bedroom volume.

ATTENUATOR BYPASS SWITCH

The new Attenuator Bypass Switch helps you match the volume level of clean and overdriven sounds. When this feature is enabled, the attenuator is automatically bypassed (turned off) when the rhythm channel is selected.

HF COMPENSATION SWITCH

This switch modifies the operation of the attenuator’s compensation circuitry, allowing you to tailor the compression, presence, and brightness to your listening environment.
