The Perfect Old-School Platform with Spank and Grit for a Modern Player - The Tone King Imperial MK II 20-Watt Guitar Tube Amplifier Head

For players that prefer mixing and matching their amps and speakers, Tone King offers the Imperial MKII head. You’ll find the same spanky blackface-style voice and '50s-era tweed grit as the combo, but with this, you can mate the head with your favorite speaker combination. And with modern appointments, such as an onboard Ironman II power attenuator, and tube-driven effects, the Imperial MKII head is the perfect old-school platform for modern players.


  • Footswitchable 2-channel design (rhythm, lead)
  • Ironman II reactive attenuation
  • Bias modulation tremolo circuit delivers vintage-style pulse
  • Tube driven spring reverb with wide-ranging control


Iconic American Tones

Although labeled Rhythm and Lead, the Imperial MKII’s dual foot-switchable channels could very well be called blackface and tweed. The higher-headroom Rhythm channel speaks with the crystal-clear body and presence of the mid-’60s most popular amps. The Lead channel brings on the spongy midrange response and sustain of the most beloved ‘50s designs. Both feature straightforward 3-band EQ control, for to-die-for tone on any setting.

Ironman II Reactive Attenuation

The Ironman II reactive power attenuator gives Tone King amplifiers increased flexibility for any gig, session, or rehearsal. Thanks to its reactive load technology and HF Compensation, it does it while always maintaining your cranked amp tone and feel. Go ahead, crank your amp to the sweet spot then rein in the volume for thick, rich tone at usable levels.

Spring Reverb and Bias-Modulated Tremolo

Spring reverb and bias-modulated tremolo have helped define the tone of many vintage, American-voiced combo amps. Tone King has gone into painstaking detail to re-create those same thick, splashing, pulsating tones; you'll discover their tube-driven circuits and old-school control perfectly capture the sound and character of the originals.

Built for Tone and Built to Last

From the tolex to the wiring, every Tone King amplifier is constructed with a passion for tone and reliability, right here in the US. They use only premium baltic birch in the construction of cabinets and amp shells. Every amp is meticulously hand-wired, to deliver top-notch tone every time you plug in.

A Style All It's Own

The first thing that often jumps out about Tone King amplifiers is the stage-ready presentation. When you’re passionate about tone, there’s no reason to hide in the background.
