Tone King Imperial MKII Head Turquoise
Due to the international situation (rising prices, more expensive shipping and a very unfavourable US Dollar) we temporarily paused the import of USA made amps.
Like a mid sixties Deluxe Reverb. a fully handwired amp with TWO channels instead of the usual one and both on steroids!

Dear Customer, due to scarcity and higher pricing of parts, increasing shipping costs and unfavorable US Dollar exchange rates, the pricing of USA made products will rise substantially in 2022. Items that are currently in stock are priced as indicated on this page, but do expect higher prices when items are listed as 'sold', 'expected soon' or in 'back order'. If you have more questions about particular products and pricing, please drop us a line!
When we released our original Tone King Imperial combo 20 years ago, we felt we had made one of the best-sounding American-voiced amps on the market. But... thanks to the experience and knowledge that two decades of amp building offers, we knew we could do better. Tone King is proud to offer the new and improved Imperial MKII. Everything you know and love about the original is still there. The spanky blackface-style voice, the gritty tweed tones, all of it; however, the MKII takes it all a few steps further. Its two channels have been tuned for better-sounding overdrive, a smoother top end, and more harmonic complexity. The amp's vintage-voiced tube reverb and tremolo will cause you to question whether you’re actually playing a vintage amp. Thanks to the Imperial MKII’s onboard Ironman II power attenuator, you can get all of these tube-driven tones at any volume. When your company is built upon the legacy of an amp like the Imperial, you’d better be sure you honor your past while always improving. With the Imperial MKII, we did.
