This is one incredible, all-around package! The Sky King has an impressively warm and round tone, all while channeling the most iconic 60s Blackface and Tweed vibes. The tube reverb and trem are out of this world! Furthermore, the power attenuator allows you to get the best, saturated lead tones at bedroom volumes.

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

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.
