...  ein Auszug von der Homepage vom 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 - ....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.”

Der FALCON klingt wie er aussieht - falsch - er ist viel variabler als der erste Blick hergibt. Aber eines ist allen Sounds gemeinsam: Tweed Ton vom Feinsten gepaart mit einem gut funktionierenden Attentuator

Die 3 Grundsounds in Kürze:

RHYTM: ein Fender DELUXE stand hier Pate - definierte Bässe, warme Mitten und "sparkling" in den Höhen

CRUNCH: so muß ein Tweed-Amp klingen - warme Mitten, wenn er in die Sättigung geht

LEAD: schöner, singender vintage Ton - in Verbindung mit dem Attentuator auch ein Genuss in Zimmerlautstärke - aber auch für die (kleine) Bühne

Using a unique ultralinear configuration, cathode biasing, and zero negative feedback, this totally old-school output stage gives you a feel and response that can’t be had from more conventional designs. Single notes swell with weight and authority. Overdrive comes on gradually, with a huge range of tonal variation between clean and overdriven. You can actually hear the tone evolve from soft and warm to angry and aggressive as you hit the strings harder, all before any grit even starts happening. When the 6V6s do start to growl, they break up with a consonant set of even ordered harmonics. This means that, instead of buzzy or hashy grit, you get chunky, syrupy, candy-coated overdriven tones.

Authentic old-school tone requires a special kind of speaker cabinet, and the Falcon’s speaker cabinet is something truly unique. More than just a simple resonant box, the Falcon’s cabinet is tuned for a voice that recreates the vibe and mojo of a genuine vintage cabinet that’s aged for 50 or 60 years.

tone king | royalist 15W combo20140522 040

Preis: 2.649 Euro 

Endlich im Shop aus dem Hause TONE KING: der ROYALIST 15W COMBO -  "Best British Sound made in California"  

     

... noch ein Auszug von der Homepage von TONE KING:

The Royalist is inspired by the sound of the early Marshall amps, and you will certainly hear elements of the old Bluesbreaker, JTM45, and JMP50 in the sound of this amp. However, the Royalist is no mere clone of a vintage amp. It is very much a new design which captures the essence of those fine vintage amps, but goes further as well.

tone king | royalist 45W Head20140524 001

Preis: 2.788 Euro Head

          1.145 Euro 2x12 Cab

Die gleichen Gene wie sein kleiner Bruder, der ROYALIST 15 - mit deutlich mehr Headroom und Clean-Reserven. Dank des Attentuatiors kommt aber auch "fette" Röhrenzerre schon bei Schlafzimmer-Lautstärke.

Bei der 45 Watt Ausführung habe mich mich für eine Trennung von Amp und Speaker entschlossen, damit das ganze immer noch leicht zu tragen ist - und 2 x !2" sollten bei 45 Watt schon sein.

Vintage-Blackface-Sounds aus dem Hause TONE KING. Die 4x6L6GC Endstufe (Kathode-Schaltung) ist auf cleane, perkussive Sounds mit einer enormen Dynamik ausgelegt - die 60 Röhren Watt sind hiezu die Basis.  

...  ein Auszug von der Homepage vom SKY KING:

Tone King's Galaxy is the ultimate in authentic vintage tone and feel. Its 4x6L6GC output stage (cathode biased) is tweaked and voiced for chime, warmth, and a spongy, swampy, organic feel like no other Tone King amp. It is designed with an ultra-pure signal path that squeezes every last drop of tone out of its tubes.
