Released first in 1993, the Imperial was designed to capture the raw tone and loose feel of a genuine well-worn vintage amp, and take that sound even further than an original vintage amp. Over the years, it has proven to be a favorite among pros and amatuers alike, and can still be found on stage with many A-list acts across the country.
Each Imperial is built one at a time by designer Mark Bartel in his Baltimore, MD Shop. The dedication to workmanship in unmistakable in all the details, inside and out. It's the kind of work that you would expect from a skilled artisian who performs all of the woodworking, upholstery, chassis assembly, and wiring operations himself, with care and percision.
