Balancing iconic vintage characteristics and innovation is a paradox very few can reconcile. Tone King is one of the most remarkable examples of this in the world of tube amplifiers. It is packed with gorgeous clean and crunch tones reminiscent of the most iconic era. However, it also comprises unique features like its built-in reactive attenuator – all painstakingly modeled to replicate every sonic nuance.  This amplifier was designed to delight and inspire, and we are proud to present the Tone King Imperial MKII Suite.


Iconic wah wah tones with a deep sweep. By mapping a MIDI controllable expression pedal, you can quickly set the plugin to learn the range of your pedal giving you full control of the sweep. If you don’t have an expression pedal, enable auto-wah!

Pre Effects

A simple Compressor offers rich, glassy cleans. Overdrive 1 & 2 give you everything from a subtle boost to classic tube saturation.

Amp Front

Featuring Lead and Rhythm channels, Spring Reverb, and bias-modulated Tremolo. Use the Mid-Bite control to soften the tweed-style voicing or dial in some aggression.

Amp Back

The Ironman II Reactive Attenuator has been compensated so that the perceived volume stays the same, but its interaction with the power amp enables you to achieve tonal variations. The HF Comp switch compensates the highs lost when the attenuator is activated.


Ideal for detailed spectrum adjustment, the onboard 9-band graphic equalizer allows for total control over frequency response.


A comprehensive cabsim module with hundreds of IRs made by 5by5 Studios. Featuring two speakers, eight virtual microphones (including two new vintage microphones; the AKG® C414 B ULS® and the Sennheiser® MD409-U3®), and our proprietary room mic section. In addition to the hundreds of IRs, this module can be used to load your own IR files.

Post Effects

The Chorus and Stereo Delay are modeled to provide the warm Bucket Brigade (BBD) sound. The Reverb covers everything from subtle ambience to almost infinite soundscapes.
