Tone King Royalist 45W Head (023A)

Tone King brings you a fresh take on vintage British style tone with the new Royalist amplifiers.

The Royalist captures the best of authentic vintage British sound by combining vintage "JTM45" girth and sweetness with the aggression and harmonic complexity of a vintage "Plexi", all rendered with the sparkling clarity and lush dimension that Tone King amps are known for.

A custom-voiced Ironman precision attenuator and specially tuned speaker cabinets deliver the "raging stack" experience - both tone and feel - at any volume, down to true bedroom level. A tube-buffered effects loop helps you get the most out of your effects devices while maintaining signal purity.
