Sky King

Tone King Amp Visionary Mark Bartel On The Design of the New Sky King

  • "In 2012 I came out with the Falcon, where I got deep into some old school, Tweed meets Supro kind of tones. I really liked that direction and had a lot of fun with that amp, which is just so much fun to play. This year my goal was to create a bigger format amp that takes the Falcon recipe and applies it to more familiar voicings, like those of the Imperial. The Sky King layout is similar to the Imperial. It's just that the tone is a kind of a combination of the Imperial and the Falcon.
  • I took the voicings of the Imperial, which cover a lot of ground - you get that nice 1960's Blackface kind of sound for the cleans, and the lead channel goes from a real nice tweed to an early Marshall kind of thing - and just gave that the mojo and texture that I have with the Falcon, that just makes it so fun to play.
  • And there's a bonus: I added a pentode/ultralinear switch, to deliver those old vintage voicings but also modern voicings. So you can get all that funky mojo but you can also switch over to pentode mode and get a nice, crisp, sharp attack.
  • The Sky King's basic clean tone is a lot like the Imperial, but when you play it you can hear that it doesn't quite have the Imperial's sharpness. Instead, the Sky King has this real rounded quality; this real syrupy kind of thing - like what you have with the Falcon. But the cool thing is that you can get the Imperial kind of thing as well. Just go to Pentode and you'll get that real nice, 1960's Fender-style sharp attack.
  • The Sky King's lead channel tones are much like the Imperial. It's got that same kind of mid-bite thing. If you turn it all the way down it's a little more tweed, but you've got 6L6's, so it's going to give you a little different sound, with a little more beef to it. You can really hear the compression in the Sky King, too. Just like the Imperial, you can crank the mid-bite up and it brings up a peak in the upper midrange, tightens up the bass - but you still get that range.
  • And then there's the built-in Ironman attenuator. It adds real value to this amp in its own right, but I took it a step further and gave it dual attenuation controls; one control for the rhythm channel and the other for the lead channel so you can match up the attenuation to perfectly meet your needs."

Imperial MKII - ON ORDER


Description:
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.

20 years of improvement
If you love the sound and feel of the original design, you absolutely have to try our Tone King Imperial MKII. Springboarding off of the tones that made the original our flagship amp, we included a few tonal adjustments and additions that are sure to make the MKII your new go-to tube amp.
● Handwired board construction improves midrange heft while improving the highs
● Rhythm channel tuned for improved overdrive with a smoother sound
● Lead channel’s Mid-Bite control tightens the low end for added punch and cut

Ironman II reactive attenuation
We included our Ironman II power attenuator aboard the Imperial MKII for even more flexibility. Now you can bring your Imperial’s maxed tube tones to band- or home-friendly levels. With our reactive load technology, your amp with sound and respond the same at any volume.
● 6-step attenuation is great in a variety of situations
● Reactive load technology maintains the feel and response of your guitar amplifier
● Tunable voice and levels with HF Compensation and Rhythm channel Bypass switches

Onboard spring reverb and tremolo
Spring reverb and bias-modulated tremolo are two sounds that define the tone of many vintage American-voiced combo amps. We think, with its tube-driven circuits and old-school control, you’ll find the Imperial MKII gloriously re-creates those thick, splashing, pulsating tones.
● Bias modulation tremolo circuit delivers vintage-style pulse
● Tube driven spring reverb with wide-ranging control
● Effects carefully tuned to balance across the two channels
