  • DESCRIPTION

The new Tone King Royalist 45 MK II is a fresh take on the much loved vintage Marshall tones of the 60's.

The MK II version of the Royalist is identical to the original version with the following two exceptions. 

1) The Ironman attenuator has been updated with frequency compensation circuitry, and 

2) the front panel now includes an additional input, Deep, which thickens the tone and reduces the gain just a bit for cleaner sounds.

The Majesty captures the best of authentic vintage British sound by combining "bluesbreaker" 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.

It features a built-in custom-voiced Ironman Attenuator II and specially tuned speaker cabinets deliver the "raging stack" experience - both tone and feel - at any volume, down to true bedroom level.

On the rear panel, there are external bias adjustment points and - uniquely - a screen voltage adjustment screw. There's a clever screen voltage regulator circuit, too, powered by a single 6V6 valve, that allows you to vary the screen voltage, which changes the attack and feel of the amplifier. A higher screen voltage equates to a faster response with a harder feel, while a lower screen voltage will soften the response for a looser, spongier feel. Nice!
