A few highlights from Day 3 of NAMM.
Tone King Amplifier brought its rad new Royalist 45 MkII amp to NAMM this year. Like the original, it uses a set of EL34s to conjure JTM45-ish tones, but the new version also has a new "deep" input that avails warmer, rounder clean tones. It also has Mark Bartel's new, improved Ironman II attenuator. A smaller, more affordable version of the standalone Ironman II (not shown) is also available for around $350.
